Sexy Costumes for Halloween 2008

While it may be a little early to be thinking about Halloween, it is fun to preview the costumes and see where the vendors are going and what girls may be wearing this year. Truthfully the most popular costumes over the past couple of years are those that were very revealing, but most girls have a degree of modesty as well as no desire to expose all their gifts. Halloween used to be exclusively a children's holiday with trick or treating for candy being the highlight of the evening. In the eighties and nineties a series of poisionings, foreign objects found in candy and a general hysteria caused many parents to refuse to allow their kids to go around the neighberhood begging for candy. Who can blame a parent that fears some disturbed person in the area wants to get a mention in the newspaper and poison her child?

Schools responded and held Halloween events, then some intellectuals decided that since the holiday began as a devil worship event that schools should not participate in such a celebration. The holiday started losing its attraction for children and their parents. Enter the 18 to 30 young adult crowd, many of whom enjoyed the fun part of Halloween, but weren't about to walk around with a pillow case and yell "Trick or Treat" when the door opened. Meanwhile many lingerie manufacturers saw an opening and they ran with the ball. Enter sexy costumes, fairy tale costumes for young adults and other varieties of costumes meant to be worn by young women that were short, tight and very revealing. The rush was on to make costumes that girls wanted to wear and there is not doubt the designers have done an excellant job of making sexy costumes for every girl, or at least some of them.
