Sexy Halloween Costumes for Women: 2016 Candidates

Holy lord they keep coming up with new ones. 

A couple years ago I documented in great detail my distaste for hyper-sexualized Halloween costumes. You know the ones: taking something innocuous - like a profession, food or children's character - and turning it "sexy" as an excuse to show your T&A on Halloween, a holiday traditionally targeted at children. 

It's creepy people! 

If you must have a sexy costume (and don't get me wrong, I'm all for looking cute), pick something that is inherently sexy - like a Greek goddess or Princess Leia in the gold bikini or even a character from Baywatch. Don't take a beloved children's character like Nemo or Winnie the Pooh or even fucking Yoda and make it into an excuse not to wear pants. Pleaaaaaase!

Take a look at the examples I picked out from 2014 here and 2015 here.

Then take a look at some of the outfits that caught my eye this year. Read 'em and weep:

1. Professions. Look how simple it is to sex up jobs like Marine and SWAT Team Officer. These ladies look ready to kick some ass.

2. Current events. I love a costume that is topical. I bet you didn't know you could sexify Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, a "400 lb" hacker or even newly minted Presidential Debate superstar Kenneth Bone did ya? Now you know.

3. Children's characters. My favorite! And by "favorite" I mean "the one that makes me ill." Here you have sexy hipster Snow White and Sexy Pokemon. 

4. Miscellaneous. These just go into the "BOOBS!" category.

Happy Halloween kiddos! Eat candy and wear pants!
