Culturally Insensitive Costumes

Be mindful that dressing up like someone from another culture is racially insensitive. Avoid dressing up like an Arab, Native American, Eskimo, Hispanic, geisha, etc. While you might think it’s cute or funny, others might really be offended.

Sexy Version of Anything

This one is mainly for those that get to dress up at work. Keep in mind that you’re still at work and dressing up as a sexy police offer, a sexy firefighter, etc., might get you in trouble with human resources. Don’t get fired over Halloween.


Do not alter your face to portray someone from another race. This is generally used to portray African Americans and it’s highly racially insensitive.

Homeless Person

It’s really not funny to dress up as a homeless person. Homelessness is a serious issue in the United States and shouldn’t be laughed at.

Body Shaming Costumes

Avoid wearing costumes that allude to body shaming. Any costume that means wearing a fat suit really isn’t acceptable.

In closing, just use common sense with your costumes when dressing up this year. We hope you have a wonderfully fun and safe Halloween in 2018!
