5 DIY Sexy Halloween Costumes

Halloween isn’t just for kids. Grown-ups love it too! There are so many after-hour parties and clubs hosting Halloween festivities, I encourage you to step out and make a night of it! Or if you’re bound to stay home, there’s no reason why you can’t use these ideas to spice it up in the bedroom. *wink*

Sexy Schoolgirl

Have a miniskirt? Better yet, a plaid one? Dig that sucker out and pair with your highest heels and a simple white button-down shirt. Slip your sexiest lace bra under it and leave the shirt buttons open to reveal just enough! Don’t forget to put your hair in pigtails, braids, or a high ponytail. That should get some stares!

Sexy Cop
Slick black pants, your hubby’s dress shirt pinned and tucked in so it conforms to your body. Add mirrored sunglasses. You might have to visit the dollar store or costume store for a police officer’s hat and badge, but these will be worthy investments. Psst—take command later. That lover has been a baaaaad boy.

Naughty Maid
Black miniskirt and form-fitting black top. If you have a pair of black thigh-highs or garter belt and stockings, this works best, but black pantyhose will work too. Dig out your highest black heels. Add a choker made of a strip of black or white fabric. Even a piece of elastic tied in a bow around your throat will work. (don’t make it too tight, of course.) A white apron is ideal. If you don’t have one, cut up a white pillowcase and use hot glue to create it. Grab a feather duster, and you’re out the door!

Fallen Angel
White nightgown, lingerie, or even a slip. Create Victoria’s Secret runway model hair with hot curlers (you want guys to run their fingers through it). Create a pair of wings from cardboard and lots of glitter. Create wing straps with elastic or string. Add some gold bangle bracelets. Repurpose a wire clothes hanger as a halo, bending the wire to the shape of your head, then up into the halo portion. Cover halo with fabric or tissue paper and dip in glitter. Of course you want high heels. I personally think vampy red stilettos would be HOT.

Hot Nurse
If you have a white minidress, this is the perfect start to your costume. If not, a long white tunic or a long white top works well. The more leg, the better! Grab a stethoscope from your child’s toy kit. Don’t have one? You can pick one up at a med supply store for under $10. White stockings and garters are necessities! And don’t forget the nurse’s cap. Make your own following these instructions:

Now that you have the idea in place, I expect pictures, people! *grin*

Thanks for reading. Now enjoy a hot scene from UNBROKEN, my latest cowboy ménage from Samhain!

It’ll take more than rope to tie down the man they love.

Country Fever, Book 3

When Christian comes out of the bar to find a bat-wielding country girl beating the hell out of his best friend Tucker’s truck, he does the only thing he can—he flirts with her. Unfortunately, he knows her pain—he’s in love with Tucker too.

Claire plans to nurse her bruised heart alone, but inevitably Tucker draws her back in—along with Christian—and the three of them tumble headlong into delirious passion. Then she and Christian wake to find that Tucker has fled his horse ranch, leaving them to care for the animals and each other.

Still grieving the death of his fiancée, pressured to sign over mining rights to a coal company, Tucker is boots-deep in emotional turmoil. Running only sharpens his longing for what he truly wants—Christian and Claire in his bed, in the barn, and under the stars.

But roping themselves firmly inside the circle of love will take everything they have—bulldogged determination, flying fists and aching hearts. 

Product Warnings
Wrangle one heartsick cowboy, and the man and woman who love him. Throw in weeks of working in close quarters, bales of pent-up lust, and feel the burn of prairie-fire-hot desire. Now just try to walk away with your heart unbranded.

Tucker cocked a brow. “I’d say you’ve been spending too much time with Letty. You’re talking like an old lady.”
The corner of Christian’s mouth quirked up. “That’s true. We’ve been living here like a cozy family. What do you have to say to that?”
It hurts like hell that you were able to survive at all without me.
He couldn’t say it. Jealousy was a hot coal in his gut. “I’m thankful that you took care of things.”
“Things meaning Claire.”
“Yeah, and more. She sure deserves someone better than me.”
“Someone like me,” Christian said in a voice that said he really believed it. He met Tucker’s gaze head-on, the lights in his eyes as challenging as the headlights of a big rig barreling at him without brakes. “If you intend to hurt her again, I’m going to have to kick your ass, Langley.”
He nodded once, hard. Then probed Christian’s stare deeper. “And if I hurt you?”
“You have. I think you know…my feelings for you. In case letting you take me in the ass wasn’t enough of an indication.”

  1. If I dressed up as any of these, hubby wouldn't want to leave the house! ;)

  2. Love the costumes. Unbroken sounds like a scorching hot read! Best wishes Em.

  3. I'm in charge of the Halloween luncheon at my office. Most people dress up and we have a ball. A couple of years ago, my boss good-naturedly requested I tone down the "gross" factor of my costumes because it was getting hard for him to eat in my presence! With your costume suggestions, I could take the party in a whole different direction! :)
