No, I don't mean Christmas, although presents are pretty damn wonderful. I'm talking about Halloween, the one day of the year that responsible adults are still allowed to play dress-up. By this point of the year, I usually have a detailed plan for what I'm going to dress up as and how to make that happen. (I never buy pre-fab costumes.) This fall, however, I'm running behind. As I consider my options, there are several questions I keep in mind to keep myself on track.
And you should, too.
Question 1: Could this costume be called "Naughty (Blank)" or "Sexy (Blank)?"
Because when it comes to costumes, both of these words are interchangeable with "whore." One part of the costume can be of the come-hither variety without overdoing it. (I flatter myself that I managed to pull off a Puss in Boots costume with red thigh-high boots. But then, I paired them with a full cape and a modest top. And, of course, pants. Which leads me to Question 2...)
There is a happy medium...
Question 2: Are there pants?
