Slutty fast food
It’s almost Halloween which means that soon, the streets of Pacific Beach and the Gaslamp will be full of lingerie-wearing ladies come October 31st. Sexy costumes are to Halloween what ketchup is to french fries. Speaking of french fries, you can now buy a sexy hot fries costume from Yandy because really, there is nothing sexier than dressing up as an artery-clogging fast food item. FYI: they also come with a free pair of lace panties upon purchase.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m a firm believer in personal expression. If you’re a fan of the naughty nurse, by all means, strut your stuff in a low-cut uniform and some patent-leather platform heels.
Below are a few other ideas I rounded up via Pinterest that showcase creativity and humor while remaining tasteful enough to be worn in the presence of schoolchildren.
If you had a creepy costume in mind, why not dress as one of the ultra-spooky Grady twins from The Shining? All you need is a pair of white knee socks, a pale-blue, baby-doll dress, a pink ribbon, and a lookalike friend.
Warhol version of Monroe
If your looking for something a tad more wholesome, grab a large poster board and some sharpies. A paper doll costume is an affordable and fairly easy DIY project.
Roy Lichtenstein pop art costume
If you want to update a popular costume option and make it your own, there's always Warhol's pop art version of the ever-so-iconic Marilyn Monroe in her white halter dress. Party city sells the dress for a mere $19.99. All you need after that is some bright pink body paint and a can of green hair dye spray.
Speaking of pop art, last but not least is a Roy Lichtenstein pop art costume. Seems like a major pain in the ass to accomplish, but if you're one of those Martha Stewart types, it's a rad costume idea.
