Yuck! Halloween Costumes For Women Are Getting Worse Every Year!

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, who doesn't love the one day out of the year you can enjoy a good scare, pretend to be someone else, and consume an extreme amount of free candy? However shopping for a Halloween costume this year has yet again sucked all the fun of such a wholesome holiday. Costume options for us girls are horrifying to say the least. It seems that every year more and more costumes are created that leave less and less to the imagination. Costumes are starting to resemble something out of a Victoria's Secret catalog! What is even more ridiculous is the price you have pay to be a sexy ear of corn, a whopping 59.95 (not including shipping). To add to all that there are a bunch of costumes out there that promote Latino stereotypes, yuck! Take a look of some of the most degrading, ridiculously priced costumes I have seen on the web this year!

Cry Baby $59.95

Sexy Corn Costume $59.95

Sexy Watermelon $61.95 ( you may be paying extra for the whole chunk of fabric missing!)

 Sexy Skunk $108.95 

Sexy Chinese Take Out $49.99

"La Adelita" $39.95  (The site claims she is straight from The Mexican Revolution!) 

Sexy Shooter  $39.95 

Sexy Senorita $39.99 (This is a teen costume by the way!)

Let's protest these sorry excuses for costumes and design our own costumes this year! Search the web and sites like Pinterest or Tumblr for some DIY costume ideas. No girl should ever pay for a costume that is demeaning to say the least! What are your thoughts on the "sexy" Halloween costume selection this year?

My main question is why would anyone want to dress up as something you eat....

HAHA!  This is so upsetting it makes me laugh at the fact that people ACTUALLY  do this.  My fav is your Watermelon comment :) 

I'll be Wednesday Addams from the Addams Family this halloween.  Creepy and funny!
