What’s So Sexy about Halloween?

What's so sexy about Halloween?

But, I don’t wanna be a pirate! -Jerry Seinfeld

I can relate to Jerry’s conundrum. Apparently, I have no choice; I must choose between a sexy costume or no costume. Well…at least according to the stores. When I popped into a major costume selling store for some ideas, there really wasn’t much to choose from. I was completely unimpressed by the selection. Helloooo, any fun brain cells left in these costume creating conpanies? Maybe these costume designers have become zombies themselves, or perhaps they have been possessed by a tutu-corset-obsessed goblin. I honestly don’t get the whole obsession with this one style only costume selection. The entire wall of costume options for females was one design reprinted in different colors with different names. The green tutu is Robyn Hood; the yellow one is bumble bee; the red tutu is devil; the blue, a sailor… you get the idea. I didn’t see any choices at all, only a cliché version of sexy. Where are the elements of surprise, mystery, humor, spookiness, creativity, or basic dignity?
But I don't wanna be sexy for Halloween! What does one do ?
By the way, last year I was Cheech from Cheech & Chong; even with my mustache and red beanie, I turned a lot of heads. Maybe it was my mid-drift and suspenders? Or the high waste baggy khaki pants and perfect slouch in my step? Whatever it was, I knew I was a dang good looking Cheech.

If sexy is a costume, fabulous. But, what if I don’t want to be sexy for Halloween?
