Why do girls wear sexy Halloween costumes?

This question isn't to "slut-shame" anyone. I'm merely curious as to why a lot of women like to dress up in very proactive costumes. Surely they know that this will turn a lot of guys on. Why do girls wear sexy Halloween costumes?

  • "Surely they know that this will turn a lot of guys on."

    And that right there is the deeper goal honey. I don't care what females say today, they can say I just want to look cute or because I can wear whatever I what, they can wear whatever they they want however they can still look cute without they're ass hanging out. The truth is they chose the sexy somewhat revealing costume cause they want to attract and look sexy and of course appeal to the male gaze or just grab attention.

    But it's mostly done to look good for men. Don't let these women lie to you, most the crazy crap we do is to look good for the opposite sex or get some type of compliments from somebody. Like if I chose to my hair and make up right now and nobody said a word, I would be slightly disappointed cause I actually put work, time and effort into my appearance and feel like it was all for nothing.

  • To all the women saying, "because we can" as an actual reason, fuck off. You "can" also dress up as a stick of butter. But I don't see many women doing that. The man asked why you dress the way you want to. He's not asking why you should, he isn't trying to get your panties in a twist. He's a curious guy with a valid question.

    Let's provide an example for you. If someone asked me why I dressed up as James Bond this year, I'd say, "because I think a suit makes me look good and in trying to get laid." or if I was dressed up as the clown from It, I would say, "because in trying to win the scary costume contest and this scares people shirtless."

    Notice how I provided a explanation. "because I can" is a useless explanation.

    • I personally feel that that’s the best explanation. It’s the one night a year that women CAN dress as slutty as possible without being judged for it. We can’t just wear lingerie any day of the year without people judging us.

    • Holy shit, this guy gets it!
      Also, I thought Halloween was about pretending to be something you're not.

      Truth.

    • Notice how only 1 girl liked your comment lol. You are completely right tho.

    • I agree it is not justifiable to dress that way, I mean if a girl wants to feel good about herself, dressing half naked is not the solution. If a girl wants to feel good about herself, go outside and protest with other passionate girls about women's rights for example or help at a soup kitchen feeding the homeless. But i'm sorry that's the problem with society today, I'm reading comments from girls about how it's one day out of the year. No, it's not, i've seen thousands of girls dress slutty on Halloween and the following week in November doing the same shit at a club... It's stupid.

  • Because it's the one night of the year they can get away with dressing like sluts and hookers. Could be chalked up to thrillseeking or maybe just attention seeking, but no matter what excuse they give it's still pretty disgusting lol.

  • We want other guys attention. We want to feel sexy and powerful. Just like the rest of 364 days throughout the year Whether it be boobs hanging out our shirts, crop tops, short shorts, tight pants, yoga pants, leggings, dresses, skirts, and swim suits we want you to look at us and say omg look at her 😍 taken or single

    • Tbh, the reason there is only slutty stuff in store is because women were made to display themselves to men. That’s what they were put on the earth for. To look good for men.

    • @exotictype1 you seem to be confusing your points. Either women are disgusting or they’re made for men to look at. Choose.

  • For many of us it’s because it’s the one day of the year we can get away with it without being overwhelmingly judged. Not to mention the medically researched fact of feeling more free with a mask on... we do things we normally wouldn’t do because our identities are hidden. Not to mention society, do you see many Halloween costumes for women for sale that aren’t so revealing?

    • You have enough self discipline not to stoop to their level lol.

    • @Westy616 it’s not about being at a high or low level, neither it’s abou being easy slut or lacking self respect or whatever. People are different. I already attract enough attention even if i wear modestly like everyday. O dont really need to wear revealing clothing to feel free and stuff.

    • So you don't have self discipline? I think it plays a little into it. I think more modest clothing is more attractive, but I think it has to do more with the character aspect.

  • Generally turning a guy on is the goal, if you can do it in public wearing basically lingerie without getting arrested why not 😂

    • Every girl can wear whatever she wants of course but she should be careful and avoid potentially dangerous situations. That was my point. Guys shouldn't be assholes. Girls should not be bitches. People should live in peace and have equal rights. Peace, friend ship, bubble gum!

  • Women like to dress in sexy costumes because they want to, some want attention from men mostly. They know that the men are going to look at them and think about having sex with them. The woman might not want to have sex with that man, but it sure feels good to tease him. She might just want to dress up sexy to feel better about herself. But, most women like the attention from men.

  • Because they know they'll get a lot of attention for it. Honestly it's stuoid.
    It's stupid that the girls objectify themselves, it's stupid that people overdose on alcohol and drugs, it's stupid that men rape.
    Halloween has become a stupid recipe for disaster among college students and young people who don't know what they're doing.
    I wish women would wake up and accept that self objectification is NOT empowerment and although rape and sexual abuse is ALWAYS 100% the fault of the abuser and nobody else, they're putting them self in a dangerous situation.

    • Also to add why do women wear sexy Halloween customes?
      They have little choice
      The American culture and industry makes money off objectifying women
      These are the only costumes they can buy
      Poor girls grow up learning that they need to sexualize themselves
      So we can't blame the women. In many ways we're victims of a horrible culture

  • Because we can. This Halloween was the first Halloween that I wore revealing clothing and it made me feel good, especially since I was always ashamed of my body. What people wear shouldn't identify them as a slut. And if "sexy" costumes turn on guys, then they need to learn to keep it in their pants.

  • "In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything" - mean girls

    To me, whether a girl dresses like a slut on Oct 31 or Apr 11, makes no difference. She's still dressing like a slut. Not that I'm complaining because I'll still look but my opinion doesn't change just because its Halloween. You chose to dress a certain way.

  • Partly it’s because ‘anything goes’ at Halloween, that’s become a social meme, no?

    But mostly, it’s because the costumes include a mask, so often, no one knows who she is. Even friends may make a play, not knowing her identity.. normally, they’d be too inhibited!

  • Because they have no respected for their self. They do it to draw attention to their self. They have a low self-esteem. When people wear clothes for a sexual reason real show how low they are as a human being. Real men and boys are not turn on by them wearing things which apply sex tone. We males get blame that we are looking at them as sexually but see what women and girls do. They see their self as sexually. They downgraded their self when they act like this.

I was in midtown over the weekend and a barely dressed catwoman in a thong walked by a mother had to quickly pull her small son away and cover his face. The outfit was really some thing a smutty stripper would wear in a XXX club.

  • It's easy, they do this because it's an opportunity to go out in public looking exceptionally sexy without getting ridiculed by their peers. In fact it's exactly the opposite, I'm sure they end up recieving quite a bit of compliments and attention that they otherwise might not get.

  • If females are seen that way...
    They grow up thinking its normal and ok, not just on special occasions, but it seems to be everyday life as well, I see girls younger than 16 wearing reavealing clothes which shouldn't be allowed, and parents shouldn't buy it for their daughters.
    Guys need think and use their heads (brain) more than their dicks...
    And also young girls are more sexually assulted/ raped because of wearing clothes that are revealing that inticie sexual predators attention...
    Like pedo's and rapest. They make me angry I could k*ll them to be honest and not think twice or feel bad about doing it... the same way they don't think twice before raping young girls...
