Have a Sexy Halloween, Everybody!

October 31st, 2012 10:00 am

In the movie Mean Girls, Lindsay Lohan’s character observes, “Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”

It’s true that Halloween is a chance to vamp it up (for better or for worse). And costume companies have cashed in on this very phenomenon by offering “sexy” versions of every character under the sun– Just add a short, short skirt and bust-enhancing bodice and *poof*, you’re a sexy vampire, a sexy policewoman or a sexy ladybird.

However, some characters or ideas just weren’t ever meant to be sexy. Here are a few we’ve found that just don’t quite work as a “sexy” costume…What do you think?

Bert & Ernie --this is confusing on so many levels-- and Chuckie (who is a boy!) from Child's Play

Nemo (it's a fish, people!) and a mental patient

Brian the dog from Family Guy--again, this is just confusing!

A unicorn and an Etch-A-Sketch game

the dress just says Silence of the Lambs-- how can a movie be sexy?

Jane Doe in an LBBB (that's Little Black Body Bag) and a Monopoly Game

Go Ask Darren…

Our intern Katja poked a little fun at the exacting ways of Darren, our sales and production manager.

Luckily, he saw the humour in the t-shirt she made…and then made her polish his boots… We’re hoping she’ll make one for all of us!

We just wanted to share this lovely photo of Sharon, wife of our MD Cliff, and her mum, Lily, both looking marvelous in Anna Scholz.
