Halloween Costume Idea Poll

Are You Going to Dress Sexy, Scary, or Silly For Halloween?

One year in college, my girlfriends and I decided to dress up as the band KISS. It was a last-minute costume that only required jeans, a black tank top, lots of face paint, and some black hair-color spray (that soon came off everywhere). The best part of the costume was that no one recognized us. The worst part: I think our face paint actually frightened people. As people gave us suspicious looks, I remember seeing other girls at the party dressed as Victoria's Secret Angels, complete with wings and boy shorts. While, I was not about to go around in my underwear, it made me second-guess my costume choice.

Halloween is a great holiday for people who like to show off some skin, but if you want to go the unsexy route you don't have to be terrifying. You could always go for funny. Like this polygamy group costume sported by a Sugar staffer last year. If you still need ideas, here's a whole list of unsexy costume ideas.

What are you planning to do this year?

I chose sexy, but not in the typical skanky-version-of-a-regular-costume way. I'm going as Joan Holloway from Mad Men!

Silly and sexy. My boyfriend is going to be little red riding hood,-full on dress and cape, but no wig or anything; hairy legs showing, lol. I'm going to be a sexy wolf.

i never felt comfortable going the crazy sexy route! i have gone to costume shops and bought an army and pilot costume, but i was fully covered. last year i was a flapper, but i used my own clothes. that doesn't count as sexy! this year i will either be borrowing a "harriet potter" costume (complete with a wand, cape, and glasses...only to show my support for the last 2 movies!!) or wearing a cocktail dress and passing out roses as the bachelorette.

I voted sexy but my costume isn't one of those 'sexy' costumes. It's a flapper...just a black dress with tights and a boa...so it didn't really fit into any of the other categories!

Silly. I'm in university, but I really don't like sexy outfits, unlike most of my colleagues. My guy friend's going as Wally, so maybe I'll dress up as Wenda. Or maybe I'll dress up as Jo Stockton.

I don't think I'll be dressing up this year, but I usually like to go the cute and bloody route.

Yeah, since college, I stopped going the blatantly sexy route. I prefer to be mostly silly with a hint of sexy, and I love making my own costumes. Last year I was an iPhone and this year I'll be the double rainbow meme. :)

Where's cute? My three-year-old and I will be dressing up as fairies. This has sexy potential, but since I'm not going to any grown-up parties and I will be doing lots of outside trick or treating in Colorado (brr), I'll be well-covered.I voted silly, because there's no cute option, and because I think it's funny when grownups wear wings and tutus.

I don't dress up. I go with my nieces and nephews trick-or-treating and the dressing up is for them!

I voted for silly, I go for costumes that are clever but still a little girly. I retired the "lingerie with animal ears" costumes when I graduated college.

I voted for Sexy. However I am dressing up as Alice Cullen from the Twilight Saga, and the reason for voting Sexy is because Ashley Greene is a quite sexy actress in most men's views.
