(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 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 Mrs. Potato Head
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 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!
