Pet Please #78: Any Costume Can Be Sexy on Halloween

I’ve written about Halloween on the blog in the past, even touching upon this subject. But it deserves its own pet please.

There were a number of years when I thought that I’d never enjoy Halloween as much as I did when I was a kid. Back then, the costumes–despite how incredible they were, thanks to my mother’s craftsmanship–were ancillary to the candy. We didn’t have access to many sweets during the year, so I looked forward to the windfall of Halloween all year.

Then I got too old to trick-or-treat, and Halloween was just an annoying holiday for a while. Through high school and college I still had to dress up, but there was no candy involved.

It was only in my mid-20s that I started to realize that Halloween for adults gives you something better than candy: eye candy. As you’re well aware, the vast majority of costumes have “sexy” on the front of them, particularly female costumes. Sexy nurse. Sexy flight attendant. Sexy cat (which, if you think about it, is really weird. Aside from animated movies, animals should not be sexy).

The sexy phenomenon came to my attention today when alert reader Amanda sent me a link to the photo you see here. Yes, these women are wearing sexy Bert and Ernie costumes. How amazing is Halloween?!?

I’d like to make some suggestions for future sexy costumes for women (ladies, feel free to make suggestions for men in the comments):

  • Sexy aardvark
  • Sexy bodycast wearer
  • Sexy Deadliest Catch fisherwoman
  • Sexy Steve Buscemi
  • Sexy grandmother
  • Sexy college football mascot
  • Sexy two-girls-one-cup girl

What is the sexiest outfit you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
