Collection of Sexist and Inappropriate Halloween Costumes

LaPrincipessa's picture

I haven't dressed up for Halloween since I was 14. I dressed up at the girl from 16 Candles, no one got it, but I thought the costume was cool.

So needless to say, whenever Halloween comes around I am appalled by the sexy outfits that websites and specialty stores advertise to women. There is the message inherent in this annual sex-me-up trend that says "Women, you can be sexy and overtly raunchy on one day of the year- any other day of the year you must follow our rules of purity and conservatism". 

Pizza Delivery Girl , see the text right over her vagina, "Hot Dish". Nice. 

There isn't an official "taxi uniform". So I guess dressing as a taxi means, "come ride in my taxi". Cool.

Oh this is rich. Dressing up in a sexy version of your child's favorite cartoon character. Sick. 

Ohh, "Indian Princess". Nothing is more offensive than this outfit, which is racist and historically inaccurate. Not to mention totally inappropriate considering the sexual trauma and sordid history of Native American women.

costume fun

I love all the Halloween sexy costumes. It is a fun time of year and allows people to play in ways they often can't.


Not into the cartoon character thing myself... but to each their own.


As for the "Indian Princess" I don't know why that needs be thought of as offensive. I live in an area that has close to 15% natives living in it from over a dozen different tribes. Number one group of people that dresses up in the "historically inaccurate" costumes = Natives. It's all about fun.


People should be allowed to play sexy and dress in a fashion that makes them feel good if they like without being judged and discriminated against.


My only complaint is that they don't make many sexy costumes for men. It is sad that men are not considered sexual enough to warrant mass manufacture of such costumes. Instead we are treated as just voyeristic goofballs and left with costumes that cover our entire bodies because we as a general rule are not considered sexy unless we have a 6 pack and huge muscles.


Women are allowed to be sexy and feel sexy no matter their size and shape.

Quoted for truth. I think you've really put your finger on why this trend is so icky. (New to this blog, btw, came over via Shakesville. Looking forward to reading more!)
