Last year it was all so clear: I was a Zombie Cheerleader for Halloween. It said, “sporty, yet cannibalistic.”
This year I’m puzzled. Sure, I could go the Super Woman route or do the more traditional wicked witch, but I was always a witch when I was heavy because it allowed me to wear a slimming black cloak. Why is it that women’s Halloween costumes come in two choices: Slutty or witch costume?
