Sexy Halloween Costumes That Aren't

Sexy Halloween costumes are nothing new, but if you've shopped for a costume in the last few years you might have noticed that the "sexy _____" costume trend has really gotten out of control. We collected some pictures of the worst offenders that we saw this year. Some don't make any sense to us, and some are things that just shouldn't be made sexy.

(All of the costume pictures in this post are from Yandy.com, but they're certainly not the only offenders.  You can find costumes like these on lots of different stores and sites.)

Probably the most disturbing ones to me are the sexy versions of children's characters.  Can't we all agree to draw the line at sexy schoolgirl and not try to take it to the next level with sexed up Sesame Street and Disney characters?

Sexy Cookie Monster and Sexy Big Bird

Sexy Nemo

Sexy SpongeBob (aka SpongeBabe SquareSkirt)

Sexy Care Bear

Then there are those costumes that take the most unsexy characters possible and attempt to make them sexy for no apparent reason, as if there's a shortage of actually sexy costume ideas to choose from.

Sexy Tin Man Woman

Sexy Mrs. Potato Head

Sexy Pinocchio

Sexy Optimus Prime

Of course there are always those costumes that demonstrate a heightened sense of cultural sensitivity.

Sexy Chinese Take Out costume and Sexy Indian Warrior

And then there are those costumes that just make you ask 'why?!' because they're that random.

Sexy Scrabble Board

Sexy Shower

Sexy Straightjacket Costume

But I think that this next costume has got to be my personal favorite.

Sexy George Washington

Sexy. George. Washington.  This costume is so random and ridiculous and bizarre and wrong that I think it turns a corner and becomes kind of amazing.  But I do think it would work better as a group costume, so next year I'm going to see if I can get a group of friends together to go as Sexy Founding Fathers.  I know, it's an awesome idea and you wish you'd thought of it first, but we call dibs so don't steal it.  Happy Halloween!

I totally call Thomas Jefferson for next year!

Sexy mrs potato head must be the absolute least sexy costume ever. They could make "sexy hitler" though... Maybe next year.

LS said...

I actually disagree with you pretty strongly on your underlying point.

Before I address that further, though, I'd like to say that I'm actually not at all happy about "sexy" Halloween costumes. When I look at Halloween, I see a holiday which is about being innocent, about enjoying candy and flexing your creativity a little by trying to make a good costume.

But sexualizing George Washington and Spongebob Squarepants? That's awesome.

halloween, the only day of the year when you can turn old dead men into female sex objects. Sigh

Alice said...

I am ridiculously jealous of your Sexy Founding Fathers idea.

Kelly said...

ditto to what alice said

I really want in on that idea!

Marika said...

You know, in their defense, most of the ones based on children's characters aren't really that sexy... people attach the word "sexy" to anything that doesn't look like your high school mascot, and Yandy is a site specializing in lingerie and sexy outfits. It's natural that they would have a large variety.

LS: I have friends who are Wiccan and I'm sure they would have a thing or two to say about Halloween being about innocent dressing up and candy. Besides, if an adult woman is going to a grown-up party, why shouldn't she dress in a way that makes her feel sexy?

I have to say that the first two look more "cute" than "sexy." I guess I don't really see a problem with these, as long as I don't see my twelve year old cousin wearing them. Except maybe Mrs. Potato Head. That's just weird.

Katy said...

Halloween costumes of late seem to be pushing the envelope of good taste, and guaranteed, MOST people will NOT look sexy in these "sexy" costumes because we don't all have the body of a lingerie model... so hey, if you want to wear something that will make you look ridiculous, more power to ya! Interesting article positing a theory on why Halloween costumes have been getting sexier through the years:


Pizza Girl said...

I agree with Marika, the first couple (taking away the lingerie model and the stripper heels) aren't all that sexy, they definitely fall into the "cute" category. If my daughter wanted to be cookie monster I'd probably find a blue dress, blue tights and a headband as well.

Jezebel said...

I do agree with the people who are saying that the Sesame Street costumes aren't that bad, especially compared to some of the others, but it still weirds me out that they're described as 'Sexy Big Bird' and put in the sexy costumes section in the first place. Why do Sesame Street characters need to be made sexy?

fabzatron said...

Hey! That sexy Big Bird costume is actually pretty cute, and it's not particularly trashy.
Still, the crazy sexy costume thing has gotten out of control; my 13 year old sister dressed up as a hooker this year. And by hooker, I mean bumble bee, except the costume didn't cover her ass in the slightest. Did I mention every costume in the store was like that? Oi.

LS said...


To clarify, I don't intend to go on a crusade with the goal of creating a more innocent Halloween, and getting women to cover up their filthy bodies. Nothing like that.

When I say I'm not at all happy about "sexy" Halloween Costumes, what I mean is that they don't make me happy.

When i say that I look at Halloween as a holiday which is about being innocent, I mean that's just the way my experiences have led me to see it.

I speak purely from personal preference. My intent in expressing that sentiment was to disassociate my support of sexualizing anything we want, from my perceived desire to see women dress sexily.
