So in honour of Halloween I am going to do a post on Halloween costumes and why people choose what they choose.
Let me start with my experience of Halloween costumes over the past 2 years. I have a Halloween party coming up next Saturday and theme was dead musicians, so I will be attending as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. That’s right, the famous rapping member of TLC. I will be dressing as Left Eye of the 90s with brightly coloured, oversized clothing, and doc martens with scrunchie socks. I shall post pictures after the event.
Last year I went to the same Halloween party as a Mathlete, that’s right, I don’t abide by the rules of women and Halloween. Apparently Halloween is code for dress as a slut and claim it’s a costume. My friend Mel and I had a conversation about this the other day, it went something like this:
Me: Why is Halloween code for dress like a slut?
Mel sarcastically: Oh I think I’m going to go as Snow White but my skirt is going to only just reach my ass and I will wear slutty high heels.
Me: Pretty sure Snow White’s dress was full length.
Mel: Pretty sure she wore flats.
Me: How can you be running around the forest away from witches in heels?
Mel: I’m going as a cat.
Me: Hey Mel, you’re wearing underwear, what’s your costume?
Mel: Oh can’t you see these ears? I’m a cat obviously.
Me: Oh right, sorry, I was so focused on the fact that you weren’t wearing any clothes, I didn’t see the two small ears that make you a cat. A slutty cat.
As you can see, Mel and I have a very similar view of Halloween costumes and girls who feel the need to make it a slutfest. I think my Mathlete costume was a huge success, I wish I had a full length photo of it but I don’t so settle for some pictures of me and my friends in their non slutty costumes:
As you can see there are some very original costumes and some over-done, you didn’t really try costumes. I must say though, there were no slutty costumes at this particular party. The coming one, I can’t say for sure as I know a lot of girls will be going as Amy Winehouse. Ill be sure to update you once I have a verdict. Feel free to post your best/worst costumes.
