Discuss: sexy Halloween costumes

I've been reading a lot of articles/ seeing a lot of videos about this topic. What are your thoughts?

Re: Discuss: sexy Halloween costumes

  • Eh. I don't really care either way how you want to dress up for Halloween. Yes, it has certainly become an excuse for women to wear as little as possible, but to each their own

    My only issue is with young girls and what their costume choices are. Do the costume companies still provide age appropriate garments? I would never want my young daughter wanting to wear something skimpy, so it's a bit of a catch 22. Adults are fine, but what are we teaching the younger girls?

  • As a general rule, I am not a fan. It's one thing if you're modestly sexy (if that makes any sense) but the whole "I'm going to wear as little as humanly possible and expose as much skin as I can!" is not cool.

    In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my LIGHT, my STRENGTH, and my SONG!

  • I don't have a problem with sexy costumes when you are in college or up to 25 really. If you are under 18/19 you should not be a slutty nurse for Halloween. If you are over 25 I expect something more creative costume than a sexy cop.

  • I find the selection of Halloween costumes for women really offensive.  90% of the costumes in Target/Walmart etc for women are revealing.  

    But, if a woman/adult chooses to dress in a sexy/revealing costume, I say go for it.

  • Sexy costumes should be reserved solely for the bedroom. For use by adults. And not for public viewing.

    I really dislike that teen costumes are sluttier than some adult costumes.

    But, it's Halloween. The whole fun of Halloween is dressing up! If I felt confident enough to wear some skimpy police outfit, I totally would!

    Meh... I don't really care. Grown adults can dress however they want, as far as I'm concerned. But the costume selections for pre-teens and teens are atrocious. That's where I have a problem.

  • I don't really mind. I look forward to making fun if Halloween sluts every year. I did the slutty costume thing one year and it was fun, but it was event appropriate and I was in college. I feel like not too long after college it just feels desperate. I appreciate creative over slutty these days.
  • Totally fun in college. Other than that, no. I just think it's dumb.

    Maybe I'm just jealous because me in sexy anything would not be sexy.

    I think it is fine for adults, though at some point it does seem desperate.

    I'm more bothered that occupation costumes for little girls, just as police officer and dr, come with tutus. Uh, female police officers wear pants, just like their male counterparts.

    But adults in sexy costumes, I say go for it. Generally, the people in overly sexy costumes are the ones who would be wearing overly sexy outfits this Friday night, anyway.
