“Halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” – Mean Girls

Halloween weekend is just around the corner and that means at least three to four nights of celebration. Awesome, right? What it really means is three to four nights of having to find different costumes and on each night you are faced with the ultimate question, “should I go slutty?”(Plus having some back-up costume options for the likely case that someone else is wearing the same costume as you, of course).

For guys, coming up with Halloween costumes is easy; recycle from last year, come up with a clever title for anything that allows you to wear a jacket, find some way to expose your muscles, make up any excuse to grow out your facial hair. It almost does not matter what you wear as long as you are not dressed up as a hotdog or some other hard-to-dance-in-costume on a night that you are trying to hook up with someone (or some people).

When it comes to girls, sorry, Halloween costumes are not so simple. The choice between dressing up in a non-original, slutty costume and a clever, non-revealing costume is a tough one. Extensive research results show, however, that you will get just as much play wearing sexy lingerie topped with bunny ears as you will wearing a Bob Marley t-shirt and a pot on your head. On the other hand, if you do not have a lot going for you other than a smoking bod and aren’t actually clever enough to come up with a funny costume that is still kind of cute, you might want to stick with the tried and true method of dressing like a total, unoriginal slut (i.e. devil/angel, firefighter, police officer, small animal, nurse, schoolgirl, etc.) because, after all, it is the one night of the year where (almost) no other girls can say anything about it.
