Four Unnecessarily Sexy Halloween Costumes


When I was a kid Halloween was awesome. We dressed up as witches and devils, cops and soldiers, robots and fairy princesses (it was just once, and I was adorable).

Now they've ruined Halloween. You may remember, two years ago when I went off on a rant about the downfall of Halloween. If you missed it...


This brings me to my pet peeve. How can we take every reasonable Halloween costume for adult women and make them absolutely slutty? I'm starting to believe that there are far more men designing me than women who actually wear them. 

Well here are some of the worst offenders on my list of unnecessarily sexy Halloween costumes:

Nothing says sexy like killing zombies with a headshot. So, Walking Dead fans certainly know that Sheriff Rick Grimes will take good care of the rest of us. I don't recall the Sheriff using a machete, nor did he sport a mini skirt. Frankly, I don't think he has the legs for it. But, if decapitation is your thing, this is the sexiest beheader you'll meet. 



Guy Fawkes has nothing on this hottie. The point of V was to remain anonymous. First, her face is showing. Second, pretty much everything else is showing as well. I hope no one recognizes her cleavage. 


According to the website, this is supposed to be Harry Potter. First of all, she's got more Hermione Granger going on... and as much as I appreciate the school girl outfit with a strategically short necktie, there's one thing that bothers me. I was an adult before the first Harry Potter movie arrived. To me, Hermione was the cute little girl with a big attitude and bigger brain. Granted, she grew up into a very beautiful young woman, but "sexy Hermione" makes me feel a little like a pedophile. Granted, I don't find Drew Barrymore or Alyssa Milano hot either because all I can see is the ET kid and Who's The Boss. 



Natalie Portman was pretty sexy when her Star Wars flight suit costume was torn strategically, but I don't get the same sensation from Fredrika Krueger! Now, every guy needs a dream girl, but I don't think any of us are hoping we run into this in our dreams. The good news is, if she swaps dresses she can be Edwina Scissorhands next Halloween. 


Here's wishing you a super sexy Halloween!

The Worst Part of Being Disabled

The central character of my novel is a wheelchair user. I know that's no big surprise. It's important to me, however, that I'm able to relate the experience of severe disability to a universal audience. I want to make sure the character expresses his worldview in a powerful way. For example, you can close your eyes, but that doesn't help you truly understand blindness. Every so often I hear about some sociology professor who gives everyone a disability for a day. People come up to me and tell me how they learned to understand my limitations and frustrations because they borrowed a wheelchair and went to the mall.  If they want to understand my frustrations, they should borrow a wheelchair and go to a job interview. Whether you have been disabled your entire life, or spent your life in perfect physical condition, I want to get your perceptions on true disability. What do you feel is the worst part about being disabled? Please be very specific. You can choose any disabil

Personal Space: an invisible disability

The worst part about being disabled for me may surprise you.  In a previous post I invited you to share your thoughts about disability. (See:   The Worst Part of Being Disabled ) I face numerous frustrating challenges on a daily basis. I'm constantly dependent on others. I need help bathing and dressing. I can't drive, cook, hold a book or feed myself. I rely on family, employees, technology and the goodwill of others. Some days it's frustrating, but I've learned through experience how to manage all this help. Other frustrations are attitudinal barriers. Today I live very comfortably and have a high family income. I'm an entrepreneur, but not because of my unquenchable desire to build businesses, but because very few companies would be willing to give me a job. I made the decision more than 15 years ago that I could build a business easier than I could find a job, so that's what I did. My single biggest frustration however isn't getting the help I need or ov

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species , was shot and killed by zoo personnel. A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media. Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse. It’s the mother’s fault! I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment.  Parents, however, understand. We’v
