Roundup: Dressing for a Sexy Soiree…on Halloween

Pin it

Typically, when dressing for a play party or sexy soirée, I go simple, concentrating on cleavage and glittery eyes more than anything else (as in this photo taken pre-Valentine’s Day Pink Party). I make sure that my bottoms enable easy access — just in case — and, more than anything else, I attempt to look hot as hell.

But tomorrow night’s OneLegUp party is so close to Halloween, costumes are required, and masks are a necessity as well. At 1 a.m., we’ll all unmask ourselves and then, well, I’ll probably be ready for bed by then.

Anyway, how to dress in something sexy that also includes a mask, allows easy access, and enables quick stripping? (Um, there will be body painters.)

After the jump, the disparate pieces of my cat costume (because, no matter what, I am a crazy cat lady):

The Basic Foundation:

ruffle-flounce-skirt

[$14.80, Forever 21]

Why: It’s a mini, which both shows off my long legs, and allows for for any easy-access canoodling. The one I bought also has a gold sheen to it, which will look sparkly and fabulous in the club-style lighting. Also, it was cheap as hell.

ruffled-tank-top

[$16.99, Target]

Why: Also, cheap as hell, the ruffle in this top matches the ones in my skirt. Plus, I could easily rip this baby off if someone offered to paint my boobs.

black-tights

[$6.99, Kohl’s]

Why: Obviously, I am a black cat. My pale-ass legs would not cut it.

black-boots

[$67.99, Kohl’s]

Why: They are fuzzy and black. And an even cheaper version of these were already in my closet. Score!

Cat-Tastic Accessories:

cat-ears

[$9.99, Emily the Strange]

I can’t for the life of me find a link to the ears I actually own, but these come pretty darn close. They’re super-cute!

black-cat-mask

[$4.99, Party City]

Why yes, I am prepared for the great unmasking, though I creep even myself out with this thing.

fishnet-gloves

[$8.99, Summit Fashions]

My arms are pale, too.

As for the hubby, he’s being a sexy gangster, which basically consists of nice pants, a suit jacket, a skinny tie, a hat, a machine gun, and no shirt. We’re so thrifty!
