Halloween Costume Options for Mommies

Last year it was all so clear:  I was a Zombie Cheerleader for Halloween.  It said, “sporty, yet cannibalistic.”

This year I’m puzzled.  Sure, I could go the Super Woman route or do the more traditional wicked witch, but I was always a witch when I was heavy because it allowed me to wear a slimming black cloak.  Why is it that women’s Halloween costumes come in two choices:  Slutty or witch costume? 

Examples from PartyCity.com:

There is the slutty rave dancer:

The sexy skeleton (which, I must admit, is pretty cool):

Really?  These “ringmaster” costumes aren’t even trying to be anything other than risque.

Come on!  Since when were nerds sexy???  If boys found brainy acts attractive I would have had an amazing social life in high school.

And for all you preggers out there, here are some trending costumes from Parents.com for you, that are, honestly, quite clever:

And my favorite…

I just can’t do “witch” again.  Ultimately, Ima have to go with Mother of Dragons from Game of Thrones, but with a longer skirt.  (I’m a mother after all; a little decorum is required.)

How about you?  Are you dressing up for Halloween?

  1. How about a sexy witch outfit? I have one of those and you can turn it inside out so it can either be a black outfit or a white one. Of all the photos, the sexy skeleton is pretty cool. It’s not too sexy looking.
