Ahh, the joys of being a woman and shopping for a Halloween costume.

Luckily, this Halloween season I am broke will create a costume from my own closet. Before I realized I was low on cash I wanted to be Wonder Woman. I usually try to make my own costume from scratch, but life has been nuts and I figured I would buy a costume. Surprisingly, the pre-made Wonder Woman costumes were more conservative than the original Carter costume.

Classic Wonder Woman

Modern & surprisingly not slutty Wonder Woman

When I saw this, for some stupid reason, I thought that maybe, just maybe, female costumes were finally losing their slut appeal. I understand the whole “flaunt it if you got it” thing, but isn’t Halloween supposed to be about all things scary not all things slutty?

I continued to look through costume ideas online thinking I may stumble upon a cheap find or get some inspiration. I considered being a sailor. I have been a Sailor Scout, but why not try to be an actual sailor. How can that be sexy. Well, this is how:

Sailor Slut

Maybe the model forgot to put on her top…

Then I considered being a Hogwart’s student. I have business casual clothes that could work and I wouldn’t be hanging out of my costume. I mean, only a pedophile would sex-ify Hogwart’s, right? Oh wait, I spoke to soon:

Horny at Hogwart's

Something is not right when your cape is bigger than your skirt. Just sayin…

My love of ewoks was recently destroyed by a slutty costume as well. I tried to find a photo online, but apparently this was a homemade costume. I give the girl props for that, but the fact she barely resembled an ewok overshadowed that. She had the furry ears and the hood and that was where the similarities ended. I am pretty sure ewoks did not wear bikini tops, mini skirts and uggs. Thank you to the girl that has forever tainted my view of ewoks.

Once again, it seems like we have forgotten the true meaning of a holiday. I guess seeing slutty versions of certain people can be scary, but is it really necessary? Nevertheless, I do love Halloween and I won’t let this slut parade ruin my favorite holiday.
