Guest Post: Scary Sexy Halloween Costumes

I'm kicking off my weekend with an adorable guest post from the lovely Liv. Her blog, Idle Fascination, is a mixture of fashion and awesomeness, with a dash of random fabulousness. Check out her blog and you will know exactly what I mean! Liv is a lot of fun and a total sweetheart, so I was thrilled she agreed to guest post for me. Definitely check out her blog and I hope you enjoy her guest post!

PS. I hope you all have an awesome weekend! xoxo


The illustrious Jennifer Fabulous is a tough act to follow. So naturally, when I jumped at the chance to write a guest post for her, I promptly came down with writer's block. And then it came to me, why not write about a timely topic that makes me deliriously happy: Halloween?!

Well, lo and behold Refinery 29 beat me to it with their round-up of "The Most Ridiculous Sexy Halloween Costumes". Ah, the "sexy" insert-virtually-any-noun-imaginable-here Halloween costume: skanky cop-out or just good clean fun? Hey, I'm in no position to be Miss Judgypants, as I've been known to tart up a Halloween costume or two in my time. But some of these are, for lack of a better word, utterly ridiculous! Refinery 29 couldn't catch them all, so here's my Top Bottom Five Best of the Rest of the Worst, or something like that. Be afraid:

1. Sexy Skunk: Let's hope this comes in Unscented.



2. Gumball Machine: I'm sorry, but if your lady bits shoot out Jawbreakers, you may want to get that checked out. And not by the guy at the bar in a lab coat dressed up as Guy Neckologist.



3. Snooki: No doubt there will be a lot of Jersey Shore-inspired costumes out and about this Halloween. And with good reason, orange skin is very seasonally appropriate. However, here is the description of the costume: "Includes dress. Does not include shoes, wig or jewelry." Um, really? Not even a Bumpit?! What's the point?



4. Sexy Family Guy Brian Costume I honestly can't decide whether this is awesome or profoundly disturbing. Maybe a martini (or six) will help...



5. Sexy Big Bird (And Cookie Monster, and Elmo...) Can you tell me how to get... to therapy so I can attempt to salvage the remnants of my severely fractured childhood innocence? (And get me another martini so I can deal with the fact that they've snubbed arguably the sexiest of the Sesame Street monsters: The Snuffleupagus. Appalling!)



A huge thanks to Jen, for letting me contribute!

I saw the big bird one & was like what the hell in the stores? The skunk one is hilarious!!! I hope it's unscented too!!! I kinda think the Brian costume is funny. If you get someone to be Stewie it'd be perfect!

Oh, this reminds me that I should definitely look for a Halloween costume asap because I have no clue of what I'm going to wear! Btw, there some great aviator jackets at Zara and H&M. And of course they aren't very expensive. Have a great weekend. Thank you for your endless support it really means a lot to me :)

im not a fan of sexy Halloween costumes. but sometimes they just look good depending on who wears it :) lol..

btd. said...

I love the Gumball Machine Costume one!

Robin said...

Most disturbing to me about Big Bird is that the hat looks kind of like you just cut off his head, shrunk it, and stuck it on yours.

I'm all for sexy costumes, but yeah- think twice about the thing you're sexifying...

Teresa said...

All of those outfits are hilarious. Seriously, a gumball machine? People come up with the wackiest ideas!

Finally, she was tried and found guilty of heresy and executed by burning. In some way, with that historical basis we find yourself with this Joan of Arc costume which seems to be like something a waitress at a Medieval-themed restaurant run by Hooters would wear. There's nothing sexier than spiritual martyrdom.
