In case you haven’t heard about it, online costume retailer Yandy recently had to pull their “Sexy Handmaid’s Tale” costume after receiving pretty obvious backlash. Not 100% sure who thought this was a good costume idea (or that they could charge $65 for it), but the company has since issued an apology for being more tone deaf than Kendall Jenner’s Pepsi ad.
I mean, I don’t personally see what the big deal is. In fact, I think sexy Handmaid is a great costume. So great that it inspired me to come up with some other fun costume ideas. Just fair warning, this is satirical and not for the easily offended…I’m obv trying to make a point here, snowflakes.
Sexy Rosa Parks! Nothing screams hottie with a body like dressing up as everyone’s favorite civil rights pioneer. Want to make it a couple’s costume? Get your man to dress up as a bus! So fun!
Sexy Elizabeth Smart! Nothing screams sexy like dressing up as America’s most famous survivor of childhood kidnapping and sexual abuse. It works even better if you can get two friends to dress up as her kidnappers. But like…sexy hobo kidnappers. Very 2018 tbh.
Sexy JonBenet Ramsey! I mean, girl had so many cute outfits to work with thanks to all her beauty pageants, am I right?
Sexy Jodie Foster in The Accused! This film won Foster her first Oscar, and nothing screams Halloween party fun quite like dressing as the sexy version of a woman who was brutally gang raped.
Oh wait…you mean none of these things are supposed to be sexy and I’m way off the mark here and being offensive by sexualizing these women? In fact, do these costume ideas make you feel kind of uncomfortable?
Just dress up as someone from Game of Thrones or something. Jesus.
