What “sexy” Halloween costume would you choose for your spouse?
We’ve noticed that a huge percentage of costumes these days start with the word “sexy”–sexy nurse, sexy cop, sexy cat, etc. etc. (Obviously keeping DD the heck away from those), but if you were to pick one for your spouse, and/or your spouse were to pick one for you, what would it/they be? And why?
(If you are not comfortable condoning the celebration of Halloween, please pretend our society frequently gives us excuses to wear costumes that don’t involve that day and answer as for that.)
My answer: Pirate. They’re sexy without having to be “sexy.” But I’m not sure my husband has worn a costume since his friend cajoled him into being a groomsman in a medieval themes wedding. So it’s really a moot point. I could just as well ask him to be a sexy cat. The answer would be the same. 😂
However, as an aside, I had to be a pirate one year because my team at work all decided to do a pirate theme. It’s next to impossible to find a female pirate costume that isn’t “sexy.” It was tough. I had to find a hodgepodge of pirate accessories , and then combine them with black pants and a red/white striped tank top I already owned.
I’m not a costume person at all, I’d much rather dh be himself and in the same vein I don’t like dressing in costume either, I feel awkward. Pretty sure he’d say sexy cheerleader or sexy nurse, or some girl in a black skin tight pleather number from an action movie.
@tentsofpurple: I am the opposite–I LOVE costumes!! Always have. I guess I just never grew out of playing dress-up. Most of my Halloween costumes over the years have been some form of princess because I love the big princess dresses and it’s my only excuse to wear them. And the sparkly costume jewelry and tiaras I coveted as a child and therefore can’t resist buying for myself as an adult. So wish we still did “fancy dress” (costume) parties like they used to do in the 19th century.
I’m like TOP, and not reallly a costume person either. I can’t think of any costume that I believe I would find him sexy in. But he has this one shirt, more western in style, that is not typically his style ,and when he wears it with the right jeans, he always looks good….mmm-hmmm. He can distract me in that when he’s preaching. 😉 He could slip a ‘lone’ranger’ mask on with that outfit, and that would be costume enough for me! 😀
I have no clue what he would choose for me (we have had zero experience of needing costumes in 25 years). I know that he likes gawdy. He likes things that shimmer and shine. He like lots of makeup, and the bigger the earrings, the better. The bigger the hair, the better. That sounds like the 80’s to me. 🙂 If I were choosing for myself, it would be more like those Victorian ball gowns. Something that hides, shapes, and enhances all at the same time. It’s probably not so much around being sexy but trying to be beautiful.
Sexy 50s Teenybopper. Micro-mini poodle skirt, plunging neckline button-up sweater, scarf around the neck. Yeah, that’d look great.
Also, I’ll call it Urban Fantasy Witch/Wizard. Black leather corset, black lacy skirt or jeans, long black coat of some sort (think duster but a shorter). That’d be very hot.
for my wife: I’d like to see her in a French maid costume. Or a sexy schoolgirl uniform costume.
For me: she’d like something that involves me in tight fitting jeans that show off a nice bulge — maybe a construction worker or something like that.
