Hallowe'en  
Here, for your edification, is a list of the top 20 Hallowe'en costumes for adults.

1. Witch
2. Pirate
3. Vampire
4. Cat
5. Clown
6. Fairy
7. Gypsy
8. Superhero
9. Ghost/Ghoul
10. Dracula
11. Devil
12. Woman of the Night
13. Nurse
14. Pumpkin
15. Athlete
16. Princess
17. Zombie
18. Angel
19. French Maid
20. Cowboy/Cowgirl


Kinda makes you want to be more inventive this year, huh?

And why is it most women's costumes can be boiled down to either "frump" or "slut" (with 85-90% falling in the slut category)? I hate that. Women have no real choices in costumes unless they make it themselves.

You hereby get 5 points for not being in the top 20 and another 3 points for not being slutty!

I once saw a guy dressed up as a French Maid. It was amusing as all get out!

That's pretty cool. Hallowe'en is MADE for the unexpected. It's the one time of the year you can dress as anything, it can be somewhat depressing to go out and meet 5 different SlutWitches in the same outfit on it. I suppose it says something about their creativity level, eh?
Nikki Fayre: Don't Feed the Trollnfayre on October 26th, 2006 09:13 pm (UTC)
True, true.

The funny thing about this costume episode were the reactions to it. He later told us that the first thing the women noticed (he was hosting a Hallowe'en party) were the fake eyelashes. The first thing the guys noticed was the guy in a dress.

It also says something about him that he was confident enough in himself to dress up like that!

I guess they would make more if they'd sell. *shrug*

Since the costumes are supposed to be about extremes, there is frump and there's sexy, and the middle is everyone else.

Yeah, they sell. And that's the problem. So many people find it easy to just pick a slot to cubbyhole themselves in instead of actually putting any creativity into it. Are you REALLY a witch or devilwoman at heart or are you more an irish banshee?

Most of the costume ideas I have aren't terribly marketable. This years I can't even wear to work. :)

Raoul, McGurk, Zathras, something like that: Brainiacraislak on October 26th, 2006 07:27 pm (UTC)
my favorite was a lady who cut a center hole large square of cardboard, glued a table cloth and place settings for 4 (children's plates) stuck her head through the hole and went as a centerpiece.

That's FANTASTIC! I love the really out of the box costumes. Mine is more wish fulfillment than out of the box, but the really weird ones take the cake. Last year, at the party I always attend, Godzilla came with a miniature city around his waist for him to destroy.

That is one thing that is really hard about working at the costume shop, I get to help every one else dress up but I get really tired. Still not sure what I am going to wear....I have thought of some really cool stuff but we will see what I end up with...

This year they have some wonderful womens costumes by Leg Avenue, but alas, they are very short and sexy, and are not cheep.....if any of you like costumes and get bored, check them out on the net....Ohhh...pretty girls!

I'm always annoyed at Leg Avenue because I'm always too tall/heavy for their One Size Fits Everyone But You sizing....
