5 Costumes All Women Should Avoid This Halloween

Ladies, raise your hand if you've ever been a cat for Halloween.

5 Costumes All Women Should Avoid This Halloween
Grace Vazquez

Every year there's the same typical costumes that girls from the ages of twelve and on wear in mass groups. What started as what seemed to be "shamed" costumes due to the amount of skin or sexual connotation surrounding them have now become the trend for women and what is desired in the eyes of their peers. While there's nothing wrong with these costumes, it is time to shake things up this year. Ladies, here is a solid list of costumes you should avoid this Halloween.

1. The cat


While this is an easy costume and is actually what I went dressed as last year, it is way overdone. It's time to leave this costume to the women who didn't know they were going out until last minute and for all of us to put some more thought into our costumes.

2. The bunny

Honey, "Mean Girls" came out over ten years ago. At least ditch Regina's bunny costume and go for Cady's more original dead bride look.

3. Sexy vampire


Not going to lie, I spent a solid ten minutes trying to decide if I was going to go as a sexy vampire this year. However, in an act to salvage my originality I didn't follow through with this idea. Not only is this look overdone, but any look with tight clothing followed by fake blood was just thrown on you is severely out of style.

4. The football player

This one is actually really cute, but not something a girl should go for if she wants to stand out. Especially if you are planning on buying your own jersey, avoid this one at all costs. Spend your money on a more original look.

5. Anything you see at a college party


Honestly, anything you see at a frat party is overdone and should be retired immediately. Usually, all of the women can be summarized by the costumes listed above.

While all of these costumes are extremely common, I think it's important that we laugh at ourselves sometimes. Ladies, go as whatever you feel most confident as. Don't let anyone persuade you to go as something else simply because it's not their taste. If you want to go as a bunny, be the cutest bunny in the club. If you want to be a classic football player, buy that jersey girl. Women should be most confident in whatever they choose to wear, not what someone else tells them to wear. Have fun this year, ladies, and stay safe.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
