Why are Women’s Halloween Costumes So Slutty?

slutty halloween costume

star wars cats GIF by Nerdist.comThe title pretty much says it all. I want to know why women’s Halloween costumes are so slutty. For whatever reason, the Halloween industry feels women need to dress like schizophrenic hookers one day of the month and I really don’t understand it. And for guys, you don’t see them running around with shorty shorts on for Halloween. Nope, they’re given full permission to dress like Chewbacca. And honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if costumers didn’t attempt to make a sexy Chewbacca costume for women.

Costume Comparison

As I scroll through the women’s costumes, they don’t even make sense. I’ve decided to do a side-by-side comparison of what the actual character looks like and how costume designer interpreted it. What I want to know is, if a woman wants to go as the actual character (particularly the scary ones) what do we do? Buy the men’s costume? Also, keep in mind, I didn’t go to a stripper or adult website to obtain these costume images but the same one that families go to find costumes for their children, even their pets.

Penny Wise

I’m truly shaking my head at this one. Just because it was a successful horror movie does not mean you have to make a slutty Halloween costume out of it. No, I’m serious. The world will go on if this costume was never made. Why peoples? Why?

Freddy Krueger

Why are they still producing costumes from movies that are 30+ years old? I was eight when the first one came out. Obviously it must be still making someone money but the whole point is the knife glove and I’d like to see Bambi there, pick up her martini at a party with the glove. Without the glove, she just looks like a dirty prostitute.

Totally believable, especially the stilettos.

Could this get any sluttier? I would be embarrassed for anyone wearing this for Halloween.

S.W.A.T. Officer

Look, just because you took a ballerina tutu and ironed on the acronym S.W.A.T. does not make it a viable option for Halloween.

Bride of Chucky

I never watched Chucky nor do I have plans to watch it before I leave this Earth. This costume is awful.

This costume is dumb and stupid.

Olive Oyl

As a child in the 80’s, Popeye and Olive Oyl were considered already considered older cartoon characters. After all, we had to make way for Jem and She-Ra! That being said, why is this costume even an option. If one Millenial understands Popeye and Olive Oyl, how many times would she have to explain her costume to dumbfounded friends?

Do you guys see what I mean? Why so slutty? I’m not saying we have to dress like nuns, Amish or librarians (and I’m not referencing the sexy librarian either here guys), but to look like we’re dressing up for Halloween at a strip joint is ridiculous. What do you guys think? Are slutty Halloween costumes a good idea? Men, don’t answer that.
