I like the idea of dressing up for Halloween, but it never quite works right for boys or men. They either dress them up too cute, like so.
or they look like morons.
If guys dress, dark and goth all cool, they have to stay in character and can't really have fun unless they work in a haunted house. It always looks stupid to see Dracula dancing.
Female costumes all look pretty cool. Themed girls just look right and they fit into the costumes. The only bad thing, for girls, is that 9 out of 10 times these costumes are sexual.
I have been to parties where some girls dress uncomfortably sexy. It becomes a competition among them to see who dresses the sluttiest. Perhaps I am getting old but I couldn't help but feel sorry for these girls and what their parents would think if they saw them with half a butt cheek sticking out of their costumes. Unless you are single, as a guy you have to keep your eyes down and walk carefully around the dance floor so as not to bump into any flopping flesh.
Are any of you dressing up this year? If so, are you sticking to a more conservative theme or are you going for the sexy ghost?
