Whore-leween



Putting to one side, just for a moment, the furore over Asda, Tesco and Amazon being total twats and selling a "Mental Patient" fancy dress costume, complete with bloodstains and an axe. (Because THAT'S what mental patients look like these days, isn't it?- Idiots) I too have an issue that I want to take up with the supermarkets about their fancy dress costumes for adults at Halloween.

And my point is this.

I DON'T WANT TO DRESS AS A WHORE FOR HALLOWEEN. 

Let us compare the costumes from say, Asda. (Because quite frankly, they deserve a kicking) 

As a man I could be FrankenGroom, Edward Scissorhands, a robber or even wear a pumpkin Morphsuit. 

But take me to the Womens section of Asda fancy dress and suddenly it looks as though someone has raided Miley Cyrus's cast-offs and are now selling them online. 





i can be a Skeleton, complete with a VERY short flouncy petticoat, (Ya know, as all good skeletons wear) I can even be a bloodstained nurse, with carefully ripped sleeves and what looks like a zip all the way down the front of the costume. VERY handy that, when you are a nurse, to wear a uniform that you can just fall out of. 

Even the pumpkin outfit consists of a satin orange skirt that is so short that if I bent over, I can assure you, it would NOT be a treat. 

Everything in the womens fancy dress sections look as if it has been rolled in slut. 

(Which is fine if that is the look you are going for, it just really isn't for me) 

DO NOT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE ZOMBIE SCHOOL GIRL OUTFIT, let me just say that the gash on her stomach is not the only gash you can see!!!


I love Halloween, I love fancy dress. I just don't see why my only option is to dress up in costumes so revealing, skimpy or sexualised that I look as if I am on my way to a porn shoot. 

I have now renamed Halloween as Whore-leween and I am just not playing the game. 


Choosing an outfit is certainly going to be Tricky and does not feel as if it would be a Treat for anyone. 

What do you think. 

Am I over-reacting or have you seen an increase in Whore-leween outfits this year? 

Let me know.

  1. I hate all costumes aimed at women on the whole - they're promoting being overtly sexy and there's no need really. I'd never wear one of these outfits.

  2. I totally agree, It should be a fun time, not lets go out and get laid time (unless that's what you want!!!!!!!!). Perhaps it's time to get out the needle and cotton and do things the old fashion way and make my own- sheet and two slits for eyes NOT slits for my other bits

  4. I don't think this year is any different to the previous years, I'm always surprised by how Halloween costumes look like something you could buy in Ann Summers.

    1. I actually know people who do buy their costumes from Ann Summers. The "sexier" the better. I haven't dressed up in years but the extend of my costume is a black top with some face paint. Ain't nobody seeing my pumpkins.

  6. Oh jeezo.... Am I the only one that loves these costumes? Sorry ladies! I love most costumes that come out every year haha I only wish Halloween was a week long event instead of one night! Some of the costumes are a bit too far (too little?) but for the most part I love them xox

    1. The problem isn't the costumes (imo) it's that they are the ONLY options for women, you want to dress up - you have to dress like a tart. I'm too old to be a tart (make your own jokes)

  9. I'm not a bad shape but I'm 47 and I still want to dress up, and I look ridiculous in these skimpy sex tart costumes. I might have linked to this post from my blog (I have) where I am ranting about sexy female super heroes

  10. Wow!! I'd love to go out trick or treating, but judging by this years standards all I'd have to do is put a strap on dildo round my head and go out dressed as a unicorn. So to protect my childrens innocence, I think I'll be staying home.

  11. We're off to Butlins for halloween. Family fun doesn't include me prancing about looking like a whore. I'll be band for life. Also, for my 13 year old daughter - NO.

  12. I agree with Jackie. Making your own costume is half the fun! And if your not super creative there's always the fall back option of a bin bag with a hole cut out the top for your head, aka: every Halloween costume I had between 1994-2000 ;-)
