It’s that time again!

Well, it’s almost Halloween, and you know what that means: Miss Plumcake’s annual plea for you not to dress like you’re the Ambassador from Skanktasia on Halloween.

This isn’t slut shaming. If you want to dress like a Naughty Seasonal Non-CPA-Certified Tax Preparer, that’s fine by me, just do it on some other random day of the year. I’ve heard the weather’s nice on Arbor Day. Wear your three dollar lurex fishnets and speculum-length mini then. At least that takes courage.

The always-topical Manolo sensibly agrees.

And the women from Emotistyle (featuring Tim Gunn) tell you how to do it right.

    Okay, fine. But just wait ’til you see the Sexy Echidna costume I’m rocking next Ash Wednesday.

    That vid is too fabulous and cute for words. My life is better now for the watching of it. :)

    My costume this year is a T-shirt that says “I don’t Do Costumes”. Since I costume for a living, it’s a costume, right?

    I frigging loved this. I was caught up in Sandy and marathon training (…I cannot believe the NYC marathon will go on, and I *want* to run it) so I didn’t dress up BUT I so wish I’d dragged a friend to be Bill Cosby and gone as Louis C.K….one of the greatest things I’ve ever seen.

    Oh, daisyj, you need to SEND PICTURES!

    Have I ever mentioned my abiding adoration of echidnas?
