Naughty or Nice Costume Ideas


Halloween costume ideas are abundant. Deciding what you're going to wear can be terribly challenging -- and time-consuming. If you're crafty and determined to create your own "naughty or nice" costume, the challenge can be all the more demanding. Store-bought costumes can also be accessorized to make them more personal. Whether purchasing a costume or handcrafting one, you're certain to take greater delight in celebrating Halloween by being prepared -- well in advance.

Naughty vs. Nice

  • Naughty or nice outfits can be very simple and yet quite playful. Interestingly, nearly every character imaginable can be converted to one of a naughty nature, as "naughty" seems to mostly imply something of a promiscuous or sexy spirit -- not at all dangerous or scary. Oftentimes, when contemplating naughty costumes, sexy concepts prevail. Naughty costumes work much of their magic with women -- but they are certainly well suited for many mischievous-minded men as well.

Accessorize Accordingly

  • With just a few tweaks to almost any costume, the element of naughty is easily added. Naughty literally implies alluring. Dressing up as a nurse and adding fishnet stockings, perhaps a garter, a low-cut blouse and ample cleavage instantly takes a seemingly nice character and turns her naughty. A lumberjack can become suggestive as well, simply by wearing very tight clothing and exposing bare skin. The same can be true for a doctor, a police officer, a firefighter or a waitress -- even an angel!

Nice Preference

  • Depending upon your definition of nice, there are many costumes that never conjure up any dark or naughty notions. You could be a farmer, a robot, a flower or a box of cereal. Costumes are truly that varied and plentiful. There are endless possibilities when considering a nice costume. Animals are always thought of as nice and cute. You could be a puppy, a kitten or a lamb. Little Bo-Peep has long been a nice costume, but it really could go either way, as could an innocent schoolgirl costume.

One Way or the Other

  • Some costumes instantly inspire naughty ideas -- such as a Playboy bunny, an exotic dancer or a vampire. Nice costumes, like Tinker Bell, a cowgirl or a southern belle are very evidently characters of good behavior -- but they are easily manipulated into being something very far from innocent.

Being Both

  • If you're feeling indecisive about which way you want to go -- being naughty or nice -- you could be a bit of both. A costume that's become commonplace at Halloween is one in which you're half devil, half angel -- split directly down the middle. This particular costume can be found at nearly every online costume site and in many costume stores -- from toddler sizes to adults -- and it epitomizes the concept of a naughty or nice costume.
