But man, the slutty costumes. Maybe I'm getting jaded in my old age, but really? Do women think they aren't sexy all the other 364 days of the year that they have to wear something that is so far from resembling what the costume is supposed to be because there is no actual cloth to the thing? Looking back, the only time I did "sexy" costumes was when I dressed as a prostitute (and I think even then I wore shorts) and last year I did wear an indecently short skirt with my crow costume. All those costumes were home made. As I browsed through the costumes there was slutty nurse, slutty school girl, slutty vampire, slutty mummy (that if it didn't say mummy you wouldn't have guessed, I thought it was a bride), slutty dog walker (seriously), slutty lady bug, slutty cop, slutty pirate, slutty matador, and slutty wood chipper... what??

People, what happened to creativity? It's sad enough that kids go around in plastic, store-bought costumes, but you'd think adults with the manual dexterity and income would have some iota of creativity to make really cool costumes. I guess I was spoiled as a kid, because my Mom was awesome at costumes (so what if I wanted to be a black cat every year? Don't judge) but I look forward to creating sometime awesome and unique each year.
