The Most Impractical Sexy Halloween Costumes Ever

List RulesVote up the costumes that are the biggest headscratchers and make you wonder, "Who ever thought of this?".

The tradition of the "sexy" Halloween costume has become a holiday cliché, but no one ever stops to consider the full dimension of absurdity that these costumes encompass.

Others, like "sexy firefighter" or "sexy executioner" may require deeper reflection before the true roots of their ridiculousness can be unearthed and contemplated.

(If she doesn't contract some horrible disease first – aren't doctors supposed to wear rubber gloves and masks for this type of thing?)
