6 Sexy Halloween Costume Ideas

The last few years, many couples have decided to avoid scary Halloween costume ideas and instead go with sexy costumes. Since Halloween is one of the few nights a year where you can put on a costume and pretend to be someone else, a sexy Halloween costume can be a sure way to liven up your Halloween celebration. In addition, thanks to some ingenious online Halloween costume retailers, sexy Halloween costume are not limited to just women’s styles. Here are some costume ideas that will let your naughty side show this Halloween.

Naughty Pirates
Long known as the “bad boys” of the sea, pirate Halloween costumes can be sexy for both men and women. Both sexes can utilize high black boots, eye patches, sashes, and hats for accessories. For women, a short skirt and crop shirt can help finalize the look, and for men, tight black pants and unbuttoned shirts to show off their chests will work. Remember to add your own personal touches of gold jewelry and other accessories.

Men’s pirate costume is right here.

Fallen Angels
This sexy Halloween costume is largely geared for women. The idea here is that more is actually less. Combine the traditional halo and wings with a full-length, form fitting gown and sexy shoes. Your partner in crime could go in a variety of costumes but a devil costume would be a good addition. Fallen angels and devils do go well together 😉

Or, find a red fallen angel costume and a black devil costume as an alternative!

Sexy Superhero
What is a sexier than a superhero coming to your rescue? Many superhero costumes will automatically be better fitted to show off your superhero physique. For men, this includes fitted pants and top, and for women, a fitted top and short skirt.  Pair it off with a cape and you and your partner are ready to save the world (or at least your party)!

The accompanying men’s costume could be something like this one here.

Not-So-Innocent Schoolgirl
The schoolgirl outfit is a traditional sexy Halloween costume for women. The idea is to give off the naughty girl vibe while still appearing “innocent.” Most of these costumes include a tight shirt that features your cleavage, plaid mini skirt, and knee high white socks. Add some pigtails to your hair and grab a book and your disguise is perfect.

While the “not so innocent” school girl has been a classic costume for years now, it is one that never goes out of style and has been updated to keep it modern.

Mysterious Egyptian
Bring the heat of the Nile to your Halloween party! These sexy couples Halloween costumes are perfect for both men and women. For women, communicate your inner Cleopatra with a revealing frock, high-heeled sandals, and rich makeup. For men, you can transmit your inner King Tut with lavish robes, fitted pants, and sandals. Some gold jewelry or a crown will aid to complete the style.

Men could go as a Pharaoh or an Egyptian god to stand proudly beside the goddess next to them!

Cop and convict
Play cops and robbers all night long in these sexy couple costumes. Women get to play the bad guy in a short, frilly skirt, tub top, long black stockings and high heels. The men get the fun of chasing the guilty down and giving them what they deserve in tight-fitting shorts and short-sleeved shirt with cop hat and handcuffs. These classic costumes will be no doubt used more than once.

The guy gets to be the cop in this costume pair. Here’s a good cop costume!

However, you should keep in mind that not all sexy Halloween costumes are proper for every occasion. If you are hosting a family party, for instance, you should choose a costume that is appropriate for all ages and put aside your sexy Halloween costume for adult only parties. With a little ingenuity and swagger, you can make your sexy Halloween costume work flawlessly for your strut!

American Horror Story Costumes

American Horror Story is one of the best shows for the last few years.  Each season focuses on different characters dealing with new situations.  The episodes can be quite sinister and definitely keep people itching for more excitement!

You can do so much with costume ideas from this show.  Costumes could be made based on any of the show’s popular characters.  For example – Twisty the Clown is pretty creepy and a good scary clown face is sure to attract attention!

You can find some costumes based on his character that have the same attention grabbing, adrenaline pumping reaction as when he first appeared on screen.

Some of these costumes come with a latex mask that’s such a replica of his face, you’ll easily win the scariest costume at any Halloween party if there’s such a category.

Most of these costumes that have the masks feature his wild three tuffs of hair. Some fans think the two side tuffs are meant to resemble horns. With some choices, all you get is the mask for the costume, but with others, you do have the entire clown outfit included.

These are all usually white. The costume is mainly a pair of pants and a shirt with the colorful pom pom balls of three down the front of the shirt. You can find some of these costumes with gloves, but not all of them have those.

The show also brought fans the character of Larry Harvey. When you look at him, it’s clear to see that his face has been burned. This character with his dark motives became one of the must see storylines.

You can find some of the Larry Harvey costumes with the facial mask that shows the burns the character has. Some of these even have the same strange eyes that make the character stand out.

You can get his costumes in sizes that are suitable for adults or older teens. One of the other cool characters on the show is Pepper. This character struck a chord with fans for the ill way that she was treated due to her facial features.

When the character was framed for a murder she didn’t commit and sent away, many fans hoped Pepper would find a better life than the one of ridicule she’d faced.

You can dress as this intriguing character. Some of the costumes you can find based on Pepper will feature many of her well known facial features like the ones that show her protruding teeth that stick out from her wide gums.

You’ll also notice the mask portion in some of the costumes features the characters’ bald head and small portion of hair. There are many American Horror costumes to choose from – just make sure you order online and early to get your favorite pick and size!

Captain America Winter Soldier Stealth Costume

Some of the most popular costumes are superheroes, especially the ones from the Avenger movie franchise. Also popular are costumes based on the Star Wars movies.

But, the most popular superhero costume this Halloween is based on the all-American boy next door appeal of Captain America. The Captain America Winter Soldier Stealth Costume is an in-demand costume, so get yours while there are still some available.

Because this costume is so well loved, it’s a strong possibility that the costume shops and retail stores won’t have this one, so be sure and check online shops. This is a jumpsuit that’s made of 100% polyester and has to be hand washed.

The material is comfortable and durable but is thinner to allow for ease of movement. Because of this, you might consider wearing some clothing underneath it especially if you’re going to be outside and it’s cold.

There are leg snaps along the ends of the jumpsuit so that you can make a quick diaper change if you have to. What a lot of parents liked about the booties is that the bottoms of the booties are made of skid resistant material, which help baby to keep from falling while wearing the suit.

The suit is made of a thick material and it’s lined, so it will be warm if the weather is cold outside. A big plus for this costume is that the sizing is bigger – rather than smaller – so a bigger baby will be able to easily fit it.

Because birds of a feather stick together, there’s another popular and cute costume that you can buy. It’s the InCharacter Costumes, LLC What A Hoot. This costume, like the peacock one is also lined and made for babies of various sizes.

It’s a jumpsuit that’s zippered and has snaps for easy diaper changes. The feet of the owl costume are fitted but the feet are very large, so this costume is better suited for a baby that’s not quite ready to walk yet.

Another bird costume that’s a big hit with parents and quite popular is the Underwraps Baby’s Penguin Belly-Babies. This plush costume is made up of the body, along with the wings, a hood and the oversized yellow feet. The suit is warm enough for cold weather wear. The feet of the costume can be a little clunky. This costume is not machine washable.
