Over the years, Halloween has become a time for ladies to dress in whatever costume they want – and yes, and that includes sultry costumes. If you’re familiar with Mean Girls, the iconic protagonist Cady says this about Halloween: “In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up and beg for candy. But in girl world, Halloween is the one time of year a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girl can say anything about it.
