I'm just wondering because every year in high school almost all of them dress in a sexy Halloween costume.Don't get me wrong, i like it for obvious reasons yet wonder with the WHY.Is it the only day of the year they can without seeming like "can't say on mylots"?Ladies please respond kindly.

Well, I am a guy, but I know that it is an instinct for human females (or maybe females of all species) to try to attract the attention of a possible mate. Especially in high school, because they're all going through their adolescence at about that time. So, it is at this time that this behavior for girls to make themselves seem very attractive. Not only on Halloween, they do it in little ways all the time, with people inventing new makeup and clothes to make them seem even more provocative. It is just puberty and the reason they do this is a result of their endocrine system making them do this . . . But that doesn't mean all of them do it . . .

Girls dress this way for the simple fact, like you mentioned, that they will not get a label placed on them (or at least they think they won't). They simply have to say "No, I'm not really one, I just dressed up for one for Halloween.". Normally this works I guess because isn't that a big reason for dressing up for Halloween, dressing up as something you're not? As for what drives them to dress up like a questionable person instead of a doctor, maybe there is something psychological going on in the thinking that maybe they are letting their true feelings come out because of the absence of social criticism. But I don't have a degree in this field and can't say this with any backing other than my own personal opinions.

I do not understand why people think it would be okay to dress provocatively during Halloween if it is not okay for them to do so during the rest of the year. If I wanted to dress the way that I do during Halloween every day of the year, nothing is stopping me. I think I am going to be a Kennels worker for Halloween this year, for a local veterinary clinic.
