Suit Up, Ladies: Sexy Halloween Costumes Are Far From Being "Over"

Halloween parties rocked bars and clubs across Phoenix last weekend, and because the official day lands smack in the middle of the week, we're planning on seeing more costumed party-goers out and about tomorrow night through this weekend.

This year's popular costumes have been all over the pop culture map. And when the Arizona Republic's Megan Finnerty claimed "sexy" Halloween was on its way out, we did a double take.

We saw more far-reaching sexy costumes and sexy angles on a zombie than we care to outline. Slate Magazine shot the Republic piece down yesterday as a trend piece with no evidence of an actual trend, and we have to agree. If Finnerty was looking for a real Halloween trend, she could have thrown a rock and hit one in her backyard.

In fact, Phoenix is home to a national company that specializes in -- wait for it -- sexy Halloween costumes. And reports record sales this year.
