I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It's the best day of the year, imo. Well, other than my birthday. Nothing beats birthdays. Anyway...as for people dressing up in slutty outfits, so what? I can think of worse things they could do. I tend to keep it more on the horror side of things (huge Rob Zombie fan).
I had so many friends in high school who immediately embraced the sexy costume idea. So many pictures sophomore year of orange girls in military/police officer minidresses...
Anyways. I'm hoping this Halloween I'll have an excuse to do a special cam show for my guy . And it can be fun outside of the bedroom, too! Just don't mix the two, please. Little kids start wanting the same kinds of costumes, and the provocative clothing just seeps lower through the age groups.
On the regular innocent side of Halloween, my mom always made me costumes. For the first like 5 years of my life I was a red m&m, and after that a princess, a knight, a wizard, a dead skateboarder, and Artemis. I'm skipping a couple there, but I forget. My mom also made my sister costumes for Belle, Harlequin, and some other kind of princess . When I have kids, I definitely want to be able to make my kids costumes. It makes Halloween that much cooler!
And a day where no one criticizes you for having a bunch of candy? who WOULDN'T take that?
Having and ADULT only costume/theme party this year. Kid is gone at grad school...just us old two fuddy duddys. Why not. Going to have some FUN.
Ever try "bobbing for dildos"? Yup, the cyberskin kind (without vibes in them), DO float. Ever made a GHOST cupcake (start with a MARSHMALLOW SNOWBALL, on top of a second cupcake, covered in white, coconut frosting...add eyes and voila..), except mine will have a PRETZEL penis!!!!
Amazing too, what you can do with Jack O Lanterns. Especially when you give them a "Pringles" "TONGUE" and have them "work on" the next Jack O Lantern in a very "sensual" way.
We are going to have some serious fun with this!!!!
I personally take issue with people (girls especially) dressing up as sexy nurses/firefighters/wh at-have-you and going out in public. If they were in sexy bunny outfits I wouldn't mind as much.
Woman at our party are going to be dressed all kinds of "bad", but not in public (I cannot control where they go to before or after our party, however!!!). We got the idea of an adult party from a "pimps and ho's" theme party someone else had two years back. All folks I work with, but WOW, some got CREATIVE and very sexy.
Halloween is a fun little day in the year when people can get together and just act silly. I love sitting on the front porch and watching the kids come by, all dressed up and on a mission to get candy. I'm excited that this year my husband and I actually get to "sit on our front porch", as to before we were sitting on my parent's front porch.
My old apartment complex used to do Halloween the night before Halloween. We would all set up lawn chairs around the courtyard/pool area with our big buckets of candy and the kids would come by and get theirs. A few people made haunted houses inside of their apartments. Mostly the people on the first floor with the larger, fancier apartments.
I'm not at all offended by Halloween. My parents, being strict Christians somewhat look down on the death/scary/bloody side of Halloween. They said when they were kids "Yes, people would scare us. But it would be more like "BOO!", wearing a sheet over your body, and less of dressing up as a dead person covered in blood".
I think Halloween could be a little less scary. Just in my opinion. I've been a dead girl for halloween, so I'm not saying it isn't okay. I just think some people take it way too far. We had a guy in my parent's neighborhood wear partially burned clothing and drenched himself in fake blood. Kids cried and the night was over by 9:00 thanks to him.
It's ok. I never really liked it when I was younger because I would dream of having an awesome costume and end up with something lame or pathetically homemade (truly, there is not a crafty gene in my family). My parents also wouldn't let us trick or treat alone or spend much time doing so, and I quickly grew to dislike Halloween. I don't hate it, but I'd rather treat it as just another day of the year... except for the November 1st candy sales.
