Sexy -- And Possibly Offensive -- Costumes To Avoid This Halloween

'Girl Code' castmembers team up with Look Different for advice on picking the least offensive Halloween costume.

It's that time of year again. You're ready to throw on your best makeshift costume (or your best overpriced, store-bought costume) and hit the streets in another attempt to relive your childhood. But before you get too excited, we've got some advice for you when considering an outfit. Avoiding two major offenses is as easy as following guidelines from MTV2's "Girl Code" cast and MTV's Look Different.

Don't dress like a stereotype.

+ If you feel like it'll be offensive, then it probably will be, so you might as well scrap it.

+ Don't do Blackface. Ever. No good can come of this.

Bottom line: If you need some other options, try dressing like a porcupine, a snail, a table ... a sexy table? Or, how about a cup of soup, since it's gender-less?

Don't make your costume too sexy.

+ Don't go outside without your clothing and call it a Halloween costume just because other girls are doing it.

+ Don't do it to impress a guy, because if he's impressed, that's not the kind of guy you want.

Bottom line: Try something different, like being a female dressed up as Brad Pitt.
