Will You Wear a "Sexy" Halloween Costume?

Will You Wear a "Sexy" Halloween Costume?

I'm sure many of us are expecting to see some serious skin tomorrow night for Halloween. The holiday has turned into an excuse to sexify even the most innocent costumes (sexy Harry Potter is just not OK).

I have to admit that the Wonder Woman costume I borrowed is a little short, but I plan on wearing thick leggings underneath. Do you dress sexier than usual on Halloween, or do you channel your costume creativity in a more reserved way?

(And if you need some last-minute ideas, check out 10 costume suggestions inspired by powerful women.)

I picked "no" - I think my costume is pretty hot, but not in the sexy/slutty way you're talking about here. I'm being a pirate. :) I've got this awesome outfit with a skirt that hits kinda above my knees (I say kinda because it's like that uneven cut on the bottom) and has like lacey sleeves that are off the shoulder. SO cute.

i pikced yes too, but i made mine and im going for the sexy/creepy aspect. I'm going to be Medusa this year, all black and gold, with gold snakes in my hair, cute oufit, then creepy white cat eye contacts and dark lips and a good combo of both. I dont see why so many people have such strong feeling about halloween costumes. Its just for fun people! Do what you want.

Yes, but I dress like that all the time so it isn't out of the ordinary. Why wait till Halloween to wear what you really want to wear?

I can't answer this. I'm yes and no. Yes, my costume is "sexy" but it's because I'm a tranny/Dr. Scott in a Rocky Horror Picture Show cast.

I like dressing sexy on Halloween... scratch that, I like dressing SLUTTY! It's the only time of year I can get away with it without looking like a hooker (actually, I live in Miami so that's not really true). I'm going as a sexy cop this year and last year I did the french maid thing. I'd actually stick out like a sore thumb in my city if I didn't dress like that. In fact, usually i look pretty tame in comparison.

Nothing wrong with a sexy costume. Although, I don't were them myself. I feel to revealed, like I am on show. Cant hang.

I picked yes because dressing up is dressing up no matter what. It's fun and it's the one time a year i can get away with it, so it really is a costume for me - because im pretty covered every other time!

I said no because I'm not dressing up. But I'd like to, but I'm going trick or treating with kids so I'll leave that to them. Personally I think the "sexy" costumes are overdone. But I think only because most border on the line of sleazy. There isn't anything wrong with being sexy for Halloween, but I don't' think that has to mean being more than half naked. Besides where I live I would freeze if I wore those costumes out.

Hell yes this year that is. My mom made me the most gorgeous sexy devil costume. First time homemade.

I usually pull a Cady from Mean Girls on Halloween. This year I'm trying to be cute and creepy.

I'm dressing up as a nurse, which I guess can be sexy, but I put it together myself and made it nice and bloody.

I'm not dressing up this year but usually I dress up as something scary or funny. Once i dressed up in one of those poodle skirts but it wasn't the sexed up version of it.

The sexy costumes are so overdone. I would much prefer dressing up as something scary, or something vintage like a Victorian or Renaissance costume. I'm not dressing up at all, however. I'm not going trick or treating, and I'm not going to any parties. I'm just going to chill in my room and watch horror movies all day and night.

I like to look sexy and mysterious on Halloween, but I picked "no" because if that picture's the "sexy" and not "skanky" outfit, I guess that makes me a prude.

I think it's funny how upset some people get if a girl chooses to wear a sexy costume. Who are you to dictate what someone else wears as a costume. Too funny!

Mandawahoo - I wore the same thing! As I said on the other post, there is NOTHING sexy about wearing Harry Potter glasses and carrying a wand. It's supposed to be funny, not sexy. I mean, seriously, you're wearing a freaking cape - how dorky is that? Alas, not everyone has a sense of humor. CaterpillarGirl - I agree. Who even buys the French maid costumes these days?

A lot of people cross the line into skanky. I have always dressed up as something fun/funny/clever/scary, never something sexy/slutty/skanky. To me, Halloween is about fun and scares, not about how many men you can get to ogle your body.

There is a fine line between being sexy and skanky. I try not to cross over... I say if you got it, work it

Guess I'll be the first to admit it - Halloween is a night I like to look sexy! There's a distinction between 'sexy' and 'slutty', though, and it certainly seems like everyone else is using one as a euphemism for the other here. It's possible to look sexy and attractive without looking like a hoe bag for the occasion. I'm being a devil for Halloween. I have a sexy red dress, some inexpensive devil accessories, and my favorite part of the costume is the pair of sequined red heels (I was Dorothy a few years back, so I may as well get more use out of them!). I don't think I look trampy at all, but sexy? Definitely! And after I go out for a few hours with friends, the boyfriend and I can come home and enjoy my sexy costume. ;]
