You’re going as sexy cat aren’t you?
Halloween is one of those things where you either love it or hate it. Some people start singing the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack on October 1st, and others just mark it off as another day on the calendar.
Surprisingly, there used to be a time when Halloween was scary. It was originally an ancient Celtic festival where people would dress up in costumes to ward of ghosts. But this is 2016, and sexy cats are what we use to ward off our ghosts now.
Say what you will about Halloween, it’s a great excuse to dress up. Here’s a rundown of what the most common costumes say about you.
The sexy costume
It’s remarkable how Halloween can make literally anything and everything sexy. We know the usual suspects: sexy cat, sexy bunny, sexy devil, sexy angel…The best part about sexy costumes is when they’re unexpected, like a sexy nun. Sexy Harambe is a legitimate costume this year, folks. You’ve been warned.
The couple costume
You know this kind of couple. I know this kind of couple. Everyone knows this kind of couple. Their entire lives revolve around each other. Coordinating halloween outfits, now that’s real love. Just an FYI, every couple this year will be dressed as Harley Quinn and the Joker. Just wait on it.
The culturally appropriated costumes
Every year, unfortunately, someone shows up to the halloween party in some culturally insensitive outfit. It’s so common that it’s worth mentioning here. Why are you dressed as a Native American? That’s not a costume. Bindis aren’t accessories. It’s 2016 and we still have to remind people not to wear blackface. Come on, get a grip.
The funny costume
Everyone knows that kid who shows up to the party in a funny costume, and everybody loves that kid. Let’s be honest, they make a fool out of themselves just to put a smile on your face. I appreciate those kinds of people, and I know you do to. They are the real MVPs.
The scary costume
These are the kinds of people who start planning for Halloween a year ahead of time. In the future you’ll find out they have the house on the block covered in Halloween decorations. They love Halloween more than Christmas. They won’t be in class on Halloween because they believe it’s a legitimate holiday.
This is the person who has literally no interest in Halloween and just thinks it’s a gimmick. You have to force them to go to a party because, to them, it’s just a regular day.
So whether you're about to throw on some devil ears and pair it off with a red bodycon dress you've had since Freshman year of high school, or you're about to go full out as Katy Perry's left shark, have a safe, fun and "scary" Halloween!
