In the past, I have dissected the phenomenon of gratuitous sexuality in female Halloween costumes. Those two posts, entitled “Happy Dress Like a Slut Day” and “”Puttin’ the Low in Halloween“, receive quite a few hits around this time of year due to people searching for said
slutty sexy costumes. I thought I’d continue to cash in on this search-result-hit goldmine with another costume post. However, this year, I thought I’d let the fellas get in on the action. Cause we all know that the fellas like the action. Ooohh, yeeeahh.
First thing I noticed when searching men’s costumes is that they have a lot of food-centric options.
Visual puns are also popular.
And, where women are required to use their own “assets” to fill in their costumes, the men are provided augmentation.
Hardly seems fair. You don’t see any female costumes with fake chests. Wait. I should rephrase that.
Anyway . . . Another trend in men’s costumes seems to be going for the WTF factor.
Superheros are always a popular choice. The key word here being “super.” Don’t be a Mediocre-hero.
And, I learned that women haven’t cornered the market on uncomfortably inappropriate costumes.
Okay, guys. Be careful out there this Halloween. Don’t spill any drinks on your fake pecs or get jumped in an alley because you really aren’t from Harlem.
