We get it now. The fact that Halloween has become a socially acceptable excuse for women (and some men) to dress as provocatively as possible without getting arrested isn’t some sad commentary on modern society. No, it’s much more than that.

It’s a game. It’s a challenge. It’s a battle to see who can make the most utterly prosaic, non-sexy thing a now-uncomfortably-sexy thing.

And it’s getting ridiculous. In our own search for a festive holiday disguise, we found 10 more Halloween costumes that have been sadly, absurdly, and unnecessarily sexified. After the undue horror these unwittingly frightening costumes bring about, we feel it’s important that, moving forward, we refrain from transforming food, dead things, evil toys, instruments, underage things and boardgames into sexy costumes. (Also, mutants with scissors for hands are not sexy, no matter what Winona Ryder tells you.)
