really?? a sexy darth vader? all that vinyl/pleather crap cant be comfortable. and all the shots where she has her hands in her crotch are nice too. and ill probably see someone in something similar.....
 Roll Eyes
oh the joys of being in high school......i had a friend suggest my costume was too modest. shes being an emo prom queen (which i find kind of offensive. i dont know why she decided to go with us. we didnt invite her!) complete with slashed wrists and eyeliner 5" thick. and the teeniest skirt ive ever seen. i swear some of the ho-in-a-bag costumes cover more!

and i dont care if people dress slutty if there legally an adult and wont be with/seen by little kids. if youre in college and are going to be at a party with people your own age, i could care less what you look like. if youre in high school/middle school/anything below that and are dressed in a H-I-A-B costume, or if youre going to be around or seen by little kids then i have a problem with it.

I completely agree with you to a point. I personally love Halloween and used to go out with my husband and before that my friends to parties or bars for Halloween parties. Now however, since people decide to do the ho in a bag costumes (that I find to be disgusting and always have) I stay home because it is better that I don't start puking from the T&A being flashed around. Which means that I don't go out for Halloween I don't get to have fun because to go out means that I am going to be stuck dealing with a bunch of want to be street walkers and if I want to see a street walker I can go to that side of town and see as many as I want. Which really sucks. I am stuck at home on the holiday I love because everyone else wants to be a ho for Halloween. How is that fair? I didn't mind them so much until a few years ago when no one would listen to me about a girl who had been obviously drugged at a club and she and all of her friends (well the whole bar except me and my friends) were in ho in a bag costumes and the next day on the front page of the paper it had something about several girls being drugged and raped on the night before who had gone to that bar. Now ho in a bag costumes make me sick and my Fave holiday has been taken over by them and rapes. Thank you ho in a bag costumes for ruining a fun holiday.

It might be a little harsh to say that everyone whose Halloween costume is sexy (even if that means a ho-in-a-bag costume) is looking to channel a sex worker. Not arguing against your opinion that T&A isn't your cup of tea (because of course that's your right to think and say) just that it's possible for a gal to rock the sexy look however she wants because it makes her happy.

Why not host a party of your own and invite folks who share your views on costuming? No need to let your dislike of other people's costumes keep you from having fun on what I agree is totally the best holiday of the year!

Aw, a friend of mine and I took a trip to Spirit Halloween to take a look at their prosthetics.  The kiddie costumes are the EXACT SAME THING as the adult ones!  They don't have boobs, what on earth do they need a corset for?!  And my friend kept saying "they're not THAT bad" until I pointed out that the leggings that the girls all conveniently wear in the photos weren't included in the costume.  Then her eyes got all wide and she got horrified.  Her biggest pet peeve was actually the amount of makeup the pint sized models had on.  Not like costume makeup, just real, honest to goodness Maybelline and Covergirl goodness.

yea thats my biggest peeve too

7 year old girls have a lot of years before they should make their own decision about "sexy" costumes

all i see is prostitot costumes and BRATZ costumes in stores!!

thankfully i've never seen these costumes on kids at my door so who the heck is buying them!

as for adults...whatever, some women like it, so some companies make 50 bucks off each one to wear plastic bra's and panties instead of their own! Cheesy just makes being unique much easier!

hop my typing makes sense...its late, and i have a broken wrist so typing is a double chore!!

so let me start out by saying i am also, very, very sick of associating the "treats" with seeing women half naked, instead of associating it with candy.
now let me skip over the girl on the left...(who later took her wings off & was just walking downtown from bar to bar in underwear) & move onto the girl in the middle.
she was a peanut!
not only did her mother make this costume for her, but she did it so tastefully sexy! the bottom is stuffed with garbage bags to give it a puffed out look, & also covered her where she should be covered. she also had a couture looking headpiece made with the same blotchy fabric as her dress, with some netting to go over her face!
also--note the alligator. <3

Not only are the costumes skeezy but OMG on the prices of them. For example...my costume (the 50's style non slutty pinup in the middle)=free. I made my skirt and the rest was straight outta my closet. My friend in the convict costume spent $63 on that! I couldnt believe it. And sadly, she was actually more covered than half the bar.

But the costumes always end up costing about the same as store bought ones. Maybe I'm doing it wrong  Grin



Yeah, me too. I think it's because we use better quality fabric. 

DD (15) was looking at the sexy costumes this year.  I made her an Asian style dress in some ridiculously ravelly "brocade" satin.  She traded it out for her vampire knight costume for trick or treating (which is just shy of being knee length: there's a picture of it around somewhere, but she's not wearing it, so it's harder to see what it looks like), and quickly changed back because she was too cold.  Score one for the mom!  Smiley

That peanut costume is too cute for words.  And so clever!  I'm definitely filing that one away for the future.

And I agree that the cost is roughly the same.  Though if you catch sales, it's not so bad.  For instance, a "nice" Renaissance outfit will run you around $150 from the costume shops, and it's still made out of that chintzy material that isn't going to last more than a year, especially if you wear it more than the one night.  I'm currently making a really nice three piece outfit for a friend of mine that will probably be in the neighborhood of $75, for all the materials, including thread, grommets, trims, etc.  And it'll last her years and years, and it's made out of nice, thick, quality materials.  I was fully appalled at the quality of the fabric of the costumes in Spirit, which run anywhere from $40-75 for a full costume.  There was a Grecian goddess that I was checking out online, but in person, it looked like thin cheesecloth, that a three-year-old could tear.  No thanks!

Well, you know, if you're not going to go skimpy, you should totally go see-through.  Roll Eyes
