Email This Post HomeHumorStupid sexy costumes and tons of book deals! Amy Vansant October 26, 2017 Humor 3 Comments Stupid Sexy Costumes Every year about this time I like to browse Yandy.com because the costumes there are so ridiculous. They take me back to a time when I was a teen and Halloween was all about getting away with looking sexier than you could on an average day. But back then, it meant maybe stuffing tissues in your bra, or wearing big leather boots or a long wig. Now they’ve turned women into sexy hamburgers and this year, sexy emojis. Things you never knew you needed. Emoji boobs! They also liberally rip-off trademarked icons like Wonder Woman. Put a girl in a Wonder Woman outfit and DC Comics will drag you off to court. But slap an ill-fitting tu-tu on her, and boom! You have “American Woman Hero” costume! They even turned elephants into sexy costumes. Suddenly, Hey baby, want to see what’s under my big tent? is a come on. I can’t think of anything less sexy than implying clowns and carnies are hiding in my nether regions. I thought the women were getting the dumbest costumes until I found this guy doing unspeakable things to a monkey. I think he’s supposed to be riding it, but…why? Who does that? Who said, “What we really need is a costume of a dude riding on the shoulders of an upright-walking monkey with weird, poofy little monkey boobs.” And who then said, “Yes! Why didn’t I think of that?!!” BOOK SALES AND GIVEAWAYS! This AuthorsXP.com giveaway is running until Monday – win horror ebooks just in time for halloween!
