Giggles and Glue GunsNo Bare Butt Cheeks Required Halloween CostumesMr. Kate

The other night at dinner before the Hello Giggles Over Share show at UCB, our very own Ruby Karp was talking about how it’s so hard for her to find ready-made Halloween costumes that aren’t *ahem* slutty! She’s 11, so obviously that is a valid concern. I think the whole sexy costume craze is a little tired – I mean year after year it gets hard to tell the difference between a Sexy Prisoner and a Sexy UPS Girl!

Thus, motivated by Ruby’s ambition and my abhorrence of Sexy Geisha Ninjas (they do exist) I did a search for some costumes that are sexy because they’re just so darn creative and funny!… and DIYable, of course. Lucky me, I happened upon a site called WTF Costumes and was thoroughly entertained, for like 20 minutes.

  3. My brother-in-law did what I have deemed the easiest and one of the funniest costumes of all time……he taped a tortilla chip to his shoulder and was “a guy with a chip on his shoulder.” I loved this then (It was the year before last), and I love it now!

  4. what I hate most about the “sexy” costumes is that I put weeks into figuring out and putting together my outfit, and some chick walks up in a “sexy bumble bee” costume she picked up that day and wins all the costume contests! Happens every single year….

  5. Going as River Song from Doctor Who! Very nerdy and not a bit sexy except for the Blonde wig and sonic screwdriver!

  6. wtfcostumes has the coolest ideas.

  7. Another one is to dress in all black and tape a piece of paper with an address on it to your stomach. Blackmail.

  8. That Cookie Monster Hunter is just plain epic. XD

  9. I, too, had trouble finding more modest costuming. I will me making my own nyan cat costume this year. Last year, I dressed up as a contestant on “Legends of the Hidden Temple. I made a decal to go on a T-shirt then hit up a Goodwill for a helmet, which I spray painted. The costume was a hit with those who watched the show.

  10. I could never have guessed the default face book picture .. nice one

  11. shoehead!
