Halloween is in the offing, and I’m counting down the days till I can get into costume, eat candies with a variety of E numbers and enjoy watching Scream on repeat once more. Once the playground for girls wanting to express their slutty side without prejudice, Halloween now caters to all kinds of folk, from Warcraft fans to those who get their kicks watching Veronica Mars reruns (or is that just me?). Yes, there are still some absolute Halloween howlers out there, but there are also some very cute costumes which epitomize geek chic. They may still be kinda slutty, but they’re a step up from the ‘Saucy witch’ or ‘Horny Devil’ that the Ann Summers massive is so fond of.
Scrabble has moved up a step from those innocent games you used to play with your Gran. It now features an array of dirty words (all correctly spelt) which include Eros, lust, Tease and Salacious. That’s 14 points for Salacious, not including the double or triple word score. You rock, sexy speller girl, you and your customised bustier, gloves and garter! Grrrr!
Enjoy Halloween by showcasing the arcade games you used to play in the Eighties. With Pacman encircling the boobage and Ghost munching on the skirt, this is the ultimate way to share your geek credentials (plus they were all out of Xena costumes).
This saucy gal just wants you to turn her one. Press once for action, and twice to mute… I wonder if they thought carefully about that button placement- or what it might signify? The insert batteries written on the reverse of the dress is a little disturbing…
Show off your dark side with the Darth-esque costume. Boots and scary red pout not included.
Have your very own 3D James Cameron moment with this costume. Warning- do not attempt to mate with that tail- you have been warned (oh, and you’ll have to have seen the film to get the reference).
