Happy Halloween!

| 64 Comments | No TrackBacks

Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a safe and fun weekend. I know I had fun watching people walk down Philadelphia St. wearing costumes. Some creative; like the two guys dressed as Bert and Ernie of Seasme Street or three people dressed as the cast of Juno. And then there were some not so creative: a playboy bunny, a cop or a cheerleader. Each Halloween I've noticed the same thing; a number of girls chose to dress up in lingerie and call it a costume. This year was no exception. I've always wondered, "What ever happened to being scary for Halloween?" But a coworker of mine, who wished to remain nameless, said,

"Scary isn't sexy and every girl wants to be sexy."

Now, I don't want to put every girl in that category because some girls want to be scary for Halloween. My point is why has Halloween turned into an excuse for girls to dress proactively? As I sat behind the counter of Pita Pit (my job), I watched countless girls walk by wearing next to nothing as costumes. An article I read on collegefashion.net titled, Do Halloween Costumes Have to be Slutty? speaks on the topic of Halloween costumes on college campuses and the "requirement" for girls to be "slutty" for Halloween. The article suggest that there's a lack of originality because it's difficult to be different; it's easy to find "slutty" costumes.

What do you think? In the past, have you ever worn a costume for Halloween such as the ones mentioned above? Or do you know anyone who has? Personally, I know that most of my friends have dressed as something sexy for Halloween. What's wrong with being scary? Do you ever feel pressured to dress sexy instead of scary for Halloween?
