Have Sexy Halloween Costumes Gone Too Far?

The popularity of sexy Halloween costumes has grown considerably over the past five years. What used to be a holiday filled with cute kids trick-or-treating has become an evening for women of all ages to don skimpy costumes and hit the town. While we have no qualms with women's decisions to wear whatever makes them feel good, we have to ask the question: Have sexy Halloween costumes gone too far? The following get-ups definitely make us wonder if flesh-favoring Halloween gear has completely jumped the shark.


Sexy Chewbacca and Darth Vader
Sexy Sexy
It's one thing to have a sexy slave Princess Leia costume. After all, Carrie Fisher's costume in Return of the Jedi was undoubtedly hot. However, there's nothing sexy about Chewbacca or Darth Vader. Not only are these costumes totally silly, but also who really wants to wear furry leg warmers?!

Our Favorite Classic Costumes


Sexy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Sexy TMNT CostumesSexy TMNT Costumes
We can think of a million things sexier than four life-sized mutant turtles that love pizza and live in the sewers. But it looks like the makers of these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes don't agree.

The Best TV and Movie Costumes


Sexy Movie Murderers

Sexy Jason and Freddie CostumesSexy Jason and Freddie Costumes
Nothing says "sexy" like crazed serial killers, right? Apparently someone thinks so, because both a sexy Jason Voorhees (of Friday the 13th fame) and Freddy Kreuger (from A Nightmare on Elm Street) costume are in the marketplace right now.

Fun Fairytale and Storybook Costumes


Sexy Sesame Street

If there's one thing that should never be made sexy, it's the beloved children's program Sesame Street. Just ask Katy Perry.

Cute and Cuddly Baby Costumes


Sexy Mental Patient

Sexy Straightjacket CostumeSexy Straightjacket Costume
We think this costume might win the prize for Best Bad Taste. There's nothing alluring about mental illness and there's nothing amusing about sexualizing it.
