The phrase “Less is more” has never been more widely followed than on gay Halloween.
Personally, with costumes, I prefer cool over sexy but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the latter! It’s gotten to the point where it feels like dressing up as a slutty angel/devil is a rite of passage for young gay men. But fear not! We at Gay-Nerds won’t let you walk down that halloween’d path of mediocrity. Here are some ideas for costumes if you want to maintain nerd cred and dress up as a nerdy reference while still showing maximum amounts of skin.

As my drag queen friends used to say “Never underestimate the ingenuity of a slut with a costume and a pair of scissors”. Just add Shirtless to any character and you’ve got yourself a winning combination. If not, there’s always the latex superhero route or the chopped up dollar store costume. Remember, any costume can be slutty if you really try! If you’re proud of your costume, be sure to share it on our Facebook page
