Costumes for Hot-o-ween (not Slut-o-ween)

Halloween is that time of year when societal rules are relaxed: not only are children encouraged to accept candy from total strangers, they are usually accompanied by middle-aged moms dressed like streetwalkers.

No matter how you feel about the scary sight of normally self-respecting women letting their freak flag fly, Slutoween is here to stay. Here is a list of sexy, but not scary-over-the-top Halloween costumes that showcase your hot Barry’s Bootcamp bod, without looking like a strip-o-gram.

1. Padme Amidala
Slave Leia is so Episode VI. The white body suit that Natalie Portman wore in “Attack of the Clones” is body conscious and a bit more temperature appropriate for those cool October nights.

2. Corpse Bride
A different take on the sexy undead bride costume. This one is a relatively easy DIY costume with a thrift store bridal gown and a steady hand with makeup.

But if you want a ready-made costume, here’s a version.

4. Tinkerbell
This classic fairy is flirty without being too naughty. This one manages to be G-rated, so it’s a great choice if you are going to be supervising minors.

It’s the only time of the year the average woman can wear a black latex bodysuit in public.

This is basically the same slinky costume, give or take cat ears or a red wig.

6. Black Swan
A black leotard, a black tutu and some ballet slippers makes for an easy last minute costume. If you’re not up to the intricate eye makeup, you can always swap out a feathered masquerade mask. Or, you can always buy this costume here:

10. Day of the Dead (Sugar Skull) Costume
The undead beauty of this costume is its simplicity and versatility (if you are confident with makeup). You can wear a bridal gown, a flamenco-style dress, a Spanish peasant girl outfit, or even just a slinky evening gown, because death is democratic about who he takes. For the cosmetically-challenged, here’s a makeup tutorial.

11. Rosie the Riveter
Nothing is more American than Rosie the Riveter, icon of women in the workplace. It happens to be an easy do-it-yourself costume. All you need is a handkerchief, a denim shirt, an attitude. And what better way to show off those Barry’s Bootcamp guns you’ve been working on all year? (This picture hangs in the Barry’s Bootcamp Hamptons gym).
