In the Halloween Wars, people often forget one of the most overlooked victims being subjected to the what not to wear scrutiny. I’m talking about moms here. Just today TMZÂ aired a short interview which showedÂ ”Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” starÂ Kyle Richards lamenting that when she went to Trashy Lingerie to pick out her Halloween costume she “went for the more conservative of the bunch because I am a mom.” Kyle, who is 44 and has four kids (Just like me!) understands that once you reach a certain age and start popping babies out of your vagina, it’s time to put the slutty slutty slut Halloween French Maid costume away. Or else you run the risk of being labeled a slutty slutty slutty slut mom by all the other moms during the morning school run.
I’ve said it roughly a gazillion times before and I will say it again here, I think moms should wear whatever the hell they want, at all times. No one should tell anyone how they can or cannot dress, especially on a fancy dress holiday like Halloween (Unless we are talking about costumes that include cultural appropriation, because that is laaaame).Â SocietyÂ ether wants to label us MILFs or Madonnas, you know, the sort of demure conservative One Million Moms mom who no longer uses her lady garden for anything even remotely sexual, but Â uses it to store kid-friendly items like amoxicillian, Go-gurts, an extra diaper and some CaillouÂ DVD’s like a worn out meat purse (Or diaper bag).
If it were up to the rest of the world, us old moms with our old lady vaginas would act our age, and wear something totally unassociated with sex, sexuality, sexiness, or sexy fun times. Here are 10 examples of totally conservative costumes that you moms can wear so no one tells you that you are dressing inappropriately.
You probably have a nice, clean white sheet in your linen closet because you’re so good at doing laundry, plus, you don’t need your bed sheets for anything else like having sex on them because everyone knows moms don’t have sex. Why not put this white sheet to good use and go as a ghost for Halloween? It’s totally shapeless, conservative, and if you are a good wife and mother, probably smells Downy fresh.
This costume is perfect for Halloween and for the day after when you need to burn any slutty moms who dressed as sexy cats the night before. Bonus: this will also be super hot when you are serving people Thanksgiving dinner.
But not a sexy maid, a maid who actually does what maids do, like cleans up after people and scrubs toilets. Add a mop and you are ready to party on Halloween! Or, skip those boring parties and bar crawls and just stay home and scrub your sinks!
Breaking Bad CharacterÂ
Just because you are an old mom doesn’t mean you don’t like cool stuff like younger people enjoy like awesome television shows. Why not go as a character from Breaking Bad, but not as Skyler because no one likes her and also, she is a slut.
Nana The Old LadyÂ
This mask would be cute paired with a jogging suit or a nice pair of slacks. No one can accuse you of trying to be a MILF in this baby!
Why not be totally daring this Halloween and go as something you have never done before? Like someone who serves people food and then cleans up their dirty dishes when they are done eating this food! Your dreams can come true this Halloween!
The Dowager CountessÂ
This costume is ideal for moms because let’s face it, this is you in about ten years. It’s like you are giving your loved ones a peak into the future!
I love Ina so so much and she always makes the best food! Everyone loves Ina. And if you are anything like me, you probably have a denim shirt or six in your closet all ready, and I KNOW you have a mixing bowl so you are pretty much good to go. How easy is that?
Â A Mom In A Halloween Themed SweaterÂ
Face it, you are probably just too old to wear a costume anyway so just get one of these adorable little themed sweaters and add one of those whacky headbands with bobbing pumpkins on springs on it. Plus, you can get one of those hilarious ghost pins that makes noise and blinks.
Missy Elliott In Her Video For The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)
This is a perfect Halloween costume for moms because moms always have trash bags and it’s very conservative. Plus, the kids will love it because it shows you are down with what’s cool.
