The only thing scary about Halloween nowadays is the lack of self-respect and class people have.
The last time I checked, Halloween was a time to dress up in a scary or funny costume. Now, unfortunately,  many women prefer to wear next to nothing.
This doesn’t define who they are and maybe they don’t usually dress this way but what’s wrong with a clever and tasteful costume? I tend to roll my eyes when I go to Halloween parties because almost every girl looks exactly the same.
As the movie Mean Girls states, “In girl world, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” It frightens me that some women have taken this to heart.
Chances are if you go to a Halloween party wearing an actual costume, you’ll get more attention, and it will all be positive. If you wear a corset and tiny shorts, you’re not going to stand out. From what I’ve seen, you’re more likely to blend in. There is nothing creative about showing off all of your skin. Sure, maybe you’ll get reassurance that you’ve still “got it,” but if you want respect, make sure your cheeks are in your shorts.
Mid-October, many people start planning their costume. They are looking forward to getting comments about how funny or awesome it is.
But, unfortunately a lot of women look forward more to showing off their goods than Halloween itself.
So many women strive to be original with their fashion choices, but they are throwing that out the window when Halloween rolls around. If you go to the store and buy a sexy kitten costume, you won’t be winning “Best Costume” anytime soon.
This isn’t what Halloween is supposed to be about. So let’s all encourage our friends to return to the days of originality and creativity. It’ll make for a better Halloween.
