If Mean Girls has taught us anything, it's that any costume can have a sexy version. Mario and Luigi, carrots, and even Barney the Dinosaur have been given the "sexy" treatment. And believe it or not, they can get trashy sometimes. Who would've thought?

u/Rusty_Walnut asked: We're coming up on the spooky season. What's the trashiest/most eye brow raising "sexy" costume you've ever seen?


Noodles?

I found a "Sexy Can" costume once in a knock off Halloween store. It was a garbage can, obviously styled off those grey metal ones. The lid was a hat. The rim had "Sexy Damage" to show off boobs.

This same "Sexy damage" was spotted all over the costume to show off various patches of skin. The weirdest thing was the wig of fake noodles that came with it.

Who said cockroaches can't be sexy?

Actually went to a party where this was the theme, some of the highlights were: sexy balloon, sexy plague doctor and sexy plague victim (couples costume), sexy mitochondria, and sexy cockroach.

Best response ever.

A friend and I had a competition one year to see who could pull off the dumbest sexy costume... She made a mean 'Sexy Dumbledore'.

Ramalina96

Sexy Dumbledore would definitely be the head master.

But like....why tho?

This one isn't sexy but it happened at work and was so baffling that this guy got a suspended from work by HR

We were told NOT TO WEAR COSTUMES. We were simply not allowed. No big deal, we're all adults and it's a professional work environment. Some of my coworkers dared another absolutely stupid coworker to wear one anyways. This guy really wanted to wear a costume anyways. He comes in the next day dressed as a Vietnamese rice farmer.


Doesn't sound so bad. Sam is Vietnamese anyways, and it sounds like a culturally enlightening experience to see how a Vietnamese rice farmer looks. Only Sam came in wearing his business work clothes and the only thing different was a yellow piece of paper cut out in the shape of a mask with two slants drawn where the eyes should be. He also made a hat out of newspaper. He was laughing so hard for the first few hours of the day and we were laughing too but only because we were all completely thrown off by what we were seeing. He didn't need a mask at all, let alone a yellow one.

Needless to say, he got fired shortly after for doing other stupid s**t.

ALWAYS too soon.

Right after Steve Irwin died, a guy I know went as a stripper version of Steve, and his girlfriend was a sexy stingray. It was too soon.

InfinitePizzazz

My brother got a stuffed animal stingray, got clothes to fit the Steve Irwin look, then showed up at the party with the sting ray attached to his chest and bloody spot on his shirt where it was attached. He reprised the costume two years ago.

EDIT: I remember now, he decided to do the costume after the South Park Hell on Earth episode.

Um....

I worked at a brokerage firm back in 2002 when the post 9/11 tech bubble market had gone all to hell. Like down 40 or 50%.

One of the admins came to work as a beauty queen. Her sash said, "Ms. NASDAQ."

She wore a torn sequined dress, run laced stockings, had fake blood all over her, a black eye, a couple teeth blacked out, disheveled hair, and a broken tiara.

I cannot explain why I found it so incredibly sexy. I guess because it fit her personality and sense of humor so well.

I cannot for the life of me remember her name, but I sure as s**t remember that costume.

Woof.

My work used to do a costume contest for Halloween every year. People always wore business appropriate costumes. Until one year a guy wore a skimpy and tight "slutty catwoman" outfit with his balls hanging out and d**k

Then he threw a big fit when they wanted him to change. That was the last year they allowed costumes.

I'm shook.

Super low effort, but one year I dressed up as the Greased-up Deaf Guy (from a couple episodes of Family Guy). I literally bought and wore only a pair of white briefs and a tub of Vaseline.

Col_hessenfeffer

If you actually committed to greasing your whole body up I wouldn't call that low effort.

igotbigballs

Nope.

My old co-worker dressed up as a slutty Adolf Hitler. Yup... tiny mustache, olive drab uniform top (with red swastika armband), an extremely short olive drab skirt, fishnet stockings, black boots with stilletto heels, and an olive drab military hat. It was... horrible.

Unfortunately, she was hot and everyone kind of wanted to bang her so...

The_Dark_Dualist

That's just plain extra.

My dad once dressed as a priest and put what was supposed to be the tail to a sexy devil costume under the robe of his costume so it looked like he had a huge red-tipped boner.

He said he got some nasty looks from people walking down the street where all the bars were that halloween night. And yes, he was completely wasted.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
