Trick or Treat: Slutty Halloween Costumes

As I’m sitting here on my couch with a Cup of Noodles in my hand and looking ghoulish from being sick it got me thinking, Halloween costumes. So, I googled “Halloween Costumes”…well I’m no prude but why are all the costumes sexually driven. Do women use this night of dressing-up as an excuse to dress slutty? These costumes must sell, as every year I see them at costume stores. Sure, its fun to be sexy but when does it go over board and become slutty? One stereotype is the slutty flight attendant; since I actually am a flight attendant I can attest that after a long flight the last thing I look like is anywhere near sexy or slutty. If anything I might look a bit dowdy. But yes, I get it, playing off the stereotypes of certain jobs is part of the fun of dressing-up.

But is this the right message for young women to be sending out? What are your thoughts?

    Ugh I know what you mean – I'm going trick or treating this year with my kids and I want to dress up too – in a fun costume, not a revealing one… So far I've come up with nothing! Even the adult costumes in the grocery store are too cleavage-y!

    There is certainly an abundance of "sexy" costumes available for women. There are very few choices for a mom who wants to dress up when she takes her kids trick-or-treating. You pretty much have to make your own!

    I have to admit when I was younger (20's) and single, I thought it was fun. Now that I am older and wiser it certainly takes the fun away from looking for a costume. I supposed that is the reason we always make our costumes at home now.
