Glamorous Costumes Make this Year's Halloween the Ultimate Treat for Adults

Share Article

This article talks about the new sexy costume trends for both women and men for the 2005 Halloween Season.

Pirates, nurses, fairies, and cops are normally popular costumes with kids, but if you head out to a Halloween party this year for adults, you might see a treat of a different kind.

"Lots of skin," says's President and Co-Founder Jay McCarthy. "Sexy pirates, pimptresses, and naughty nurse costumes satisfy the sweet tooth for many of today's young men and women. These days, women 18-45 years spend a lot time in the gym, tanning, and getting surgical enhancements to boost their appearance, and the Halloween season is permission for some to allow their wild alter ego to escape for the night."

"We work hard to keep ourselves in shape says," Bernette La Ducca, Employee Relations Coordinator for a staffing firm in the Silicon Valley, but besides a bikini and Summer time at the beach, Halloween is one of the few times of the year a woman can go out and dress over- the-top sexy without being looked at negatively. It's fun to dress up and take on a new persona for the night. Halloween is like a nation wide Las Vegas party, and what happens on Halloween stays at the Halloween party. That is, unless someone has one of those cell phone cameras, but that's a whole different story."

But is sexy Halloween attire reserved for just women?

"Absolutely not", says McCarthy. "The web site and retail store are carrying a selection of men's costumes that are complimentary to the ladies costumes, and keep the guy looking cool. The sexy pirate wench doesn't want to be with a guy in a monster suite, she's on the arm of a dashing swash buckling pirate hero, with his well defined biceps clenching a plastic sword. Pimp suits are in this year more than ever as they are versatile, ultra-hip, and can be personalized with dozens of accessories. It's an outfit that can be worn throughout the year for many different party events, and is nearly as important in a guy's wardrobe as owning a tuxedo."

Besides Hipwear, is a great resource for pimp costumes. So how much is a pimp suit, sexy pirate wench, gothic fairy, or naughty nurse costume going to lighten your wallet?

"Plan on spending $50 to $500 for a quality costume depending on accessories, fabrics, customization, and garment durability," says McCarthy. "The average costume sale at Hipwear is around $150 if the person buys the costume, shoes, stockings, and all the accessories. There are cheaper costumes one can buy from those costume super stores; however, most of what we offer is outfits that have the type of quality that rivals everyday-wear found at better department stores. Some of our items are lined; employ soft brushed cotton polyester blends, velvet, fur, tulle, and adornments. Our manufacturers work very hard to cut designs that flatter the physique, and the cinching in the waist, pushup in the bra area, and short shorts, are certainly going to turn a lot of heads at parties this year. For men, show a bit of that well defined chest and biceps if you've got them. Whether you've got the body or not, a long pimp suit with platform boots and lots of bling will keep you looking hip no matter what your shape. and the Hipwear store are poised and ready to more than double their Halloween business this year. "We have increased staffing for our web, and retail businesses, and have automated most of the order fulfillment and shipping processes," says Jay McCarthy. If this year's early Halloween rush is any indication, we are going to have an incredible year selling sexy costumes.”
