Kim Johnson - Women have few choices when it comes to Halloween costumes

Have you figured out what you’re going to be for Halloween this year? I have not and was hoping to get some ideas browsing through a Halloween costume and supply store. But after doing so, I realized my options are limited. Women’s choices are a sexy cat, sleazy nurse or porno cop… oh wait I forgot one “Dirty Desperado Cowgirl”.
Why do costume manufacturers think women want to wear only skimpy costumes on Halloween? Why must they turn every costume into an X-rated outfit? The men’s costumes come with all its fabric. Can women at least get discounts for only getting half the costume? Plus don’t they know that Halloween is at the end of October? It’s too cold for fish nets and mini skirts!
If I were the crafty type I’d just head to Michaels and construct my own costume. But to be honest, I’m not gifted in that area. The most I could do would be to take my bed sheet and cut two holes and be a ghost—but I’d likely manage to mess that up too.
So what’s a non-crafty woman on a time crunch to do? I guess I should start thinking about next year’s costume now because I know the racy ones at the stores are just not my style.
