Halloween is considered by some to be the ideal time to show off as much skin as possible. And why not? If you’ve got it, flaunt it, because pretty soon we’re all going to be old and decrepit anyway.
However, while I always applaud women embracing their sexuality, there are definitely some Halloween costumes that take the “sexy” theme a bit far (like, over a cliff). In addition to the requisite sexy professionals costumes, there are now sexy cartoon characters, political figures, and even inanimate objects.
Here are just a few abominations that purport to be “sexy” in the name of Halloween. Let’s embrace and encourage Halloween cleavage, but find a way to avoid these bizarrely-sexualized costume choices in the future, shall we?
Because there’s nothing sexier than irony, I guess?
Yes, hamburgers can be sexy in the right context — but that doesn’t mean you need to dress like one.
DEAR GOD, MAKE IT STOP.
You leave my beloved childhood cartoons out of this, dammit!
I’m sorry, there’s just no way to make a pointy head look sexy.
So … you’re essentially dressing as compost?
Okay, I almost like this one, to be honest.
Is this offensive? This feels vaguely offensive.
Donald Trump is already under the impression that he’s sexy. Please stop indulging him.
Sure. Why not? You’re literally just wearing a strapless dress, but I’m willing to pretend this is a costume.
11. A Sexy Carrot
Carrots are … vaguely phallic, I guess?
12. Sexy Girl Scout
Sure, sexualize young Girl Scouts. I don’t see how that could be problematic AT ALL.
Racist. This is racist. You are racist.
I feel like this is specifically prohibited in the Constitution, somehow …
Is it less expensive to see this version? *ZING!*
There are so many travesties on this costume, it’s hard to pick just one to make fun of!
It’s a PIXAR MOVIE, you monster.
18. A Sexy Dory Fish
Okay, this actually looks kind of comfy.
If you’re a fan of Mr. Robot, I find it HIGHLY unlikely that you’re going to purchase this costume.
20. Sexy Ken Bone
KEN NEVER WANTED THIS, PLEASE LEAVE HIM ALONE.
