Woman's rant on too-sexy Halloween costumes is all of us

Merchandise ran the gamut, from small party favors to neon signs with spooky messages to large, elaborate lawn displays. Here are some of the weirdest costumes for Halloween 2017. For some, wearing offensive costumes is an act of gleeful rebellion, an inversion of Hanlon's razor driven chiefly by malice and intended to provoke.

According to the National Fire Incident Reporting System, Halloween fires occurred most frequently in the late afternoon and early evening hours, peaking during the dinner hours from 5 - 7 p.m. Fires then declined, reaching the lowest point during the early morning hours of 4 - 7 a.m.

It's official: horror is back. Last year, the all time high was 8.4 billion.

Angry social media users said it was an example of blackface. Cue the nostalgic childhood memories of dressing up to trick or treat and, of course, attempting to eat all of the candy in one night. You can do as much or as little as you want with it. You can go out and find goofy clothes, a crazy wig, and a red nose, but you can also get away with skipping this step and still having your costume be pretty obvious. This, and other men-dressed-as-women gags, the article says, could be seen as transphobic.

Labels sewn inside the garment will often reveal an outfit's hidden history, whether it be a cast-off from a Bond movie or a showgirl outfit from "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". The following week, Rubie's started manufacturing It paraphernalia, including makeup kits, latex masks, jumpsuits, and glue-on scars.

In 2005, the cloak worn by Alec Guinness as Obi-Wan Kenobi in "Star Wars" turned up in the Hendon warehouse after being lost for nearly three decades. I found a wig and put some rollers in it and found a pair of all came together really well and was easy. Sometimes, when a movie is successful, it's successful because it's good.

Deggans says horror films are constantly underestimated for how powerful they can be. Maybe you can't afford full-sized candy bars, but at least give out mini-Snickers or Skittles.

"While they have long experienced marginalization, Latino, black and Native American students are living in campus communities that are perhaps more openly hostile than they once were", she said.

Find some inspiration: Look through stores around you to get inspiration.

Garcia added, "I always loved going for the funny and simple Halloween costumes, so I decided to be a classic ghost from cartoons and just cut holes in an old sheet for eyes and draped it over me".
