"Sexy Costumes" ... they make me roll my eyes...

I touched on "Sexy Costumes" a little last year when I discovered that they make a Sexy Big Bird and Sexy Cookie Monster Costume... but Caffeinated Joe Reminded me of the absurdity of it all with his post about sexy versions of horror villians. Go read that post... Seriously, Sexy Leatherface? Now I've seen it all! I know, I know... I've been in college, and I get the appeal of looking sexy without judgement from your peers, but I have never fallen victim to one of these crazy stupid costumes, mostly (I'll admit) because the sexy ones weren't built for big girls, and when I was in the market to wear one, I was a big girl! Maybe that's where the eye rolling comes into place.

None the less, every time I see a sexy costume or the mention of one, I think back to Mean Girls... If you've never seen this video, please watch it - it totally describes the Sexy costume thing in perfection.

This time of year you see a lot of posts on things like this, but check out this one over at Rage against the Minivan - it's pretty crazy too.

And after that one - check out the Crooked Ninja Turtle Gang's post about "The worst" of the Sexy costumes... it made me laugh out loud.


  1. I did a post myself on so-called "sexy" versions of male horror villains. I just don't get it.

  2. I thought I had seen it all. Then yesterday I spotted a "Sexy Box of Crayons" costume. Really.

  3. What about the "sexy corn" costume? Seriously people!

  4. Haha - yeah Joe that's where I got the idea for mine ;)

    Sexy Box of Crayons... WTF!? And Sexy Candy Corn? I know what you mean! This crap is just so out of control! I saw a pair of sequin hot pants in the costume aisle, no costume definition, just sequin shorts... guess they're a universal piece of costumery!
