|This is what Halloween should be about|
|Sexy Finding Nemo. I shit you not.|
On the whole, Halloween is great. The colours, the candy and of course, the costumes all make Halloween a fun evening that is essentially harmless and overtly silly. My problem is not with the concept of fancy dress on the whole. Of course not, it's all good fun, it's silly and is great for breaking the ice at parties. You don't even have to have made the effort to be particularly scary or creepy; better to have variety that two dozen witches and vampires.
|What the actual fuck is sexy about|
Kermit the Frog?
The list doesn't end there; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Shrek, Avatar, the Lion King and, get this, the Care Bears are all genuine things that you can buy a "sexy" Halloween costume of.
I mean really, what is sexy about Kermit the Frog? Who was it who decided that dressing up as a version of Snow White that moonlights as a prostitute was a good thing? Whatever happened to Halloween being scary?
Which is why I'm calling for this trend in 'sexing up' Halloween to stop. Seriously girls, put down the knee length socks, the short skirts and the ridiculous cleavage; that ain't Halloween.
Pick up some rubber fangs, some fake blood and face paint. Grab some scissors and don a bedsheet with cut out eye-holes. Anything, so long as it doesn't resemble a Disney character that has been spliced with Fifty Shades of Grey.
If this Halloween your invited to a party, go as a vampire, a zombie or a witch. In the name of all that is good and holy, please do not go as 'sexy' Edward Scissorhands. So long as it ain't remotely sexy, it still counts as Halloween and not as S&M.
