Question: Hi! I am currently planning to attend several Halloween parties this October; two of them are really big; I’m talking New York City mega-parties…while I feel like I am going out on a limb asking this question, I am going to anyway: what kind of sexy Halloween costume can I buy that will allow me to stand out from the crowd? I don’t want people to look at me and think “nice, she bought that at the dollar store”!!!! I am fairly petite (5′ 2″) and I am largely average for my body size. Please help!!! – Meg S.
Answer: Thanks for writing to us Meg! Every year around this time, we field hundreds of questions like yours; Halloween is a great time to enjoy with friends and family alike, although in your case, I assume you will be attending these parties with friends. While we can make plenty of sexy Halloween costume suggestions, the choice ultimately comes down to your particular likes, taste and needs; what works for one girl may not necessarily work for another.
What I can do, however, is provide you with some helpful insight on what to look for, and how to get the ultimate “sexy” look! Take a look at these next points:
– Know Your Target Audience
You wouldn’t want to show up to a Halloween party that has revelers of all ages; young children, mid-20’s adults, older parents, etc. If you know that the party you are attending will be wild, kinky and sexy, then you will know which direction to lean towards. In your case, you can’t go wrong starting with a bit of cleavage and thigh-high boots now, can you? 😉
– Don’t Try Too Hard
There is a difference between “sexy” and “oh my goodness, she wants attention”. Subtlety is the key when it comes to oozing sexuality; sexy doesn’t necessarily mean having to see every ounce of bare skin. This costume is a good example of a sexy Halloween costume that provides some sexy glimpses of skin, while cloaking what lies beneath with a fantasy twist. Sometimes the imagination IS the key to the equation.
– Don’t Attract The Wrong Attention
Safety at any party or public event is always paramount; don’t give off an aura of “hey boys, come and take me!”. Whatever sexy outfit you end up choosing, make sure you act with class and keep your friends close if you start to feel uncomfortable with too much of the wrong attention. Hopefully this helped answer your questions, and at least gave you some sort of starting point towards finding the perfect sexy Halloween costume!
Thanks! – AMI
