    What Not To Be For Halloween
    Look, I know that anonymously judging other people on the internet plus 25 cents will get me a phone call. I know I can’t actually change anyone’s minds if they have it set. But let me please, please implore of you: DO NOT BE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING COSTUMES THIS HALLOWEEN. They are played out. A lot of people have beef with the idea of “sexy” costume like sexy nurse, sexy panther, sexy cop, etc… Look, if you’re going to dress as a sexy witch, there’s no advice I can give you about how cheesy it might be. God bless you if you want to take one day of the year to look extra slutty. I have much bigger fish to try with these costumes which purport to be clever and culturally savvy. Here they are:

    Rollergirl from Boogie Nights: You will only remind people that you don’t look as good as Heather Graham. It’s a bad idea to do a “sexy” costume that’s modeled after someone way sexier than any real life girl is.

    The first rollergirl was pretty cute.

    ‘Fake cocaine makeup’ is a *great* pet peeve.

    You know, I actually think some of those rollergirls look pretty hot. Also, as a psychiatrist, I love the freudian slip costume (particularly the one that includes freudian phrases). And my boyfriend and I were margot and richie tenenbaum one year…i guess this all makes me a lame hipster but I’d rather see people in fake cocaine makeup than a sexy bee costume any day.

    I’ve never seen a sexy bee. I want to see one. I would also be interested in seeing a sexy cockroach or a sexy bedbug. any sexy bug really.
