Hey, fellas. I know your dilemma. You want to pay homage to your favorite geek stuff with your Halloween costume, but you want to be sexy, too. I see you there gazing at the wall of masks on the comic shop, searching for that perfect costume that’s geeky and plays up your assets, all the while wondering, “Can I be sexy and still be a geek?”
Yes, gentlemen. Yes, you can.
It’s hard. We know. But it’s OK. Pink Raygun is here to help.
In the spirit of Equal Opportunity Nekkid Nudity, here are some suggestions for sexing up your Halloween costume and joining the ladies for a night of shivering (also appropriate for conventions!):
- That’s Jordan Knight under there. I had this pin-up on my wall in 8th grade.
An easy costume to pull off that oozes sex. All you need is a mustache, red cap, and overalls. No shirt. Shirts aren’t sexy.
Sexy Scream Killer Dude or Sexy Guy Fawkes/V/Misc Revolutionary
You know there will be hundreds of these masks out there on Halloween night. Set yourself apart from the legions of unimaginative Halloweeners with your sexy! Leave your hoodie open or take it off for some killer (or revolutionary!) sex appeal.
Sexy Captain Kirk
Any one can put on a mustard jersey shirt, pepper their speech with inappropriate pauses, and say they’re Captain Kirk. Be daring! Ditch the shirt, toss a dishtowel around your shoulders, and go sexy with your Kirk!
Sexy Sam Winchester in a Very Sexy Towel
Like our previous costume, any guy can put on snug jeans and a flannel shirt and call himself a Winchester. But, to be truly sexy and geeky, wear a towel. Mist yourself with water throughout the night to create that ultra-sexy “just stepped out of the shower” look.
- Delete, delete, delete, DELETE!
This versatile costume can be customized any number of ways. You can go with silver boxer trunks, as shown here. You can wear silver bike shorts or full length silver leggings. You can go with a chest that’s waxed, hairy, or somewhere in between. The Sexy Cyberman costume is limitless.
Of course, sometimes your costume choice naturally dictates that you be sexy and there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it. Nothing. NOTHING! You have no choice other than to be sexy.
Conan, Shirtless Thor, or Black Dynamite
He only wears a wee pair of scaly briefs.
- I has a sad.
He also only wears briefs.
You think I’m joking, but I’m not. John is aware and, while he doesn’t support it, he understands. Kinda. OK, John doesn’t understand and it makes him uncomfortable.
If you want to get creative and a little subversive, like some of the ladies, here are some other suggestions:
Sexy Jabba the Hutt
Sexy Baron Harkonnen
Rest assured, guys. You can maintain your geek and flaunt your sexy this Halloween. You don’t have to choose one or the other, nor should you have to. So, let your pecs feel the freedom of the cool night air and let your sexy geek flag fly!
