Put the Sexy in Your Costume

One of the best parts about Halloween is getting to be someone different for one night. Children love this, but many adults do too! And for some people, the person they want to be is a bit wicked, a little bad, and a lot sexy. Here are a few essential components to start designing a deliciously hot Halloween costume.

Fishnet Stockings

This sexy leg wear has been around for decades. Fishnets can be purchased in department and discount stores, as well as costume shops. They look great with basic pumps, boots, flats, just about any footwear. For a goth or more wild look, tear holes in them. They won't run quickly like normal stockings. This simple, inexpensive accessory will spice up any costume.

Peek-A-Boo Lingerie

Ladies, this is finally your chance to show off your expensive lingerie in public. After all that money that you've spent on under-things that only your honey and the women in the gym locker room see, now you get to show it off a little. Try a little flash of hot-pink bra beneath that shirt. Or use a sexy bustier as a starting point for your costume. Let your imagination go wild.


Nothing changes a woman's appearance as much as a different hair style. Professional wigs are expensive and often uncomfortable, but costume wigs offer a chance to put on a whole new look with one simple accessory. These are often sold out of the package, so plan to get your hair messed up and try on as many different types as you can. You don't know which one is going to be the ideal look for you this year.

Bare Skin

This is the night to let it show! Whether it's cleavage, midriff, thighs, legs, butt, whatever your hot body part is, let it hang out. Design your Halloween costume to put your best asset on display.

Sky-High Heels

Most of the time high-heeled boots or 7-inch platforms are impractical, but not on Halloween! Men love stylish boots on a woman, and they go crazy for high heels. With the many styles and colors available to choose from, there is no excuse for not finding the perfect pair to go with your costume choice. Look for something outrageous and wild and remember that you're only going to be wearing them for awhile, so finding something super comfortable is not the goal.

Lots of Makeup

Face painting is a great way to achieve any look you want, from sweet and innocent to wicked and dangerous. High-quality face paints can be ordered online if you don't have a good costume shop in your area. If you don't want to get too involved with makeup, at least experiment with a different look for your eye color and lipstick. Try some false eyelashes or glitter. Don't be normal, be adventurous. Remember, you're not going for a job interview; you want to look hot, not hirable!


Last but not least, don't forget to step out with the proper sexy Halloween mind-set. You are hot, you are desirable, you are one sexy woman. You get to take on a whole different persona for this holiday, so enjoy!
