Cringe! Cover your Goblin! The only thing scary about these costumes is the overexposure of vaj and boobs--- and that's downright sexist when you think about it...
Yes, it is. Why? Because we live in a sexually repressed society where our inner slutitude can only be expressed on the one day of the year where people get to be something they're not.
I say, goddamn it, we all know we're sexy betches, Halloween costumes should be grotesque, farcical or at least a convincing fake of something else (I was once an extremely convincing whigger for Halloween... these are the things you do when you grow up in Cincinnati).
Last year, my "Pregnant Britney Spears" costume was a huge success, and I'm having trouble deciding what to be this year. I'm thinking either...
Tangentially related to the eyeless monster, though not a reference to last year's movies, a bunch of grapes.
I've always wanted to be a bunch of grapes as a costume; it's a good excuse to buy purple tights and cover yourself in balloons. Also, the threat of having your balloons popped and revealing your "stem" is sexy in its own right, but in more of a "potential" kind of a way, not in a "Hey get out of my bedrooom, I'm about to do effin', oh wait, I'm on the street" kinda way. I think that going all the way and filling the balloons with a little bit of wine, just so that they couldn't say I didn't think of everything.
And here, for your viewing pleasure, a few old-timey costumes with modern appeal. This first one makes me want to get it blown up and printed out, poster size.
I could rock the crap out of that onion costume...for extra effect-- and to make your costume not just a sight gag, but also a smell one, one could consume a bag of Funyuns before hitting the evening's parties.
So... have you thought about what you want to be for Halloween? If not, think now... I'm announcing a Halloween-themed contest soon!
