Shhh! My Costume Is a Secret

Girls have it so easy -- literally -- when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. We can take any animal or occupation, add some fishnet stockings and a push-up bra, put the word slutty in front it, and voila! – there’s a costume. Slutty kitty, slutty mouse, slutty nurse, slutty cop. In fact this year Target is selling a Naughty Librarian costume (for $59.99!), which includes a short skirt screen-printed with the spines of books (um, never seen that on a librarian), eyeglasses, a sleeveless low-cut cardigan, a mini cape (huh?), and a name tag that reads Naughty Librarian, since most people won’t get it. Pearl necklace not included (but crass jokes about said necklace are encouraged). Meanwhile most men will be dressed like drunk doctors, drunk lawyers, and drunk pilots. Oh, wait, they are just coming as themselves.

Whatever you decide to wear, you can show off your fabulousness at the twentieth annual Halloween Sundowner at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens (3251 S. Miami Ave., Miami). The always popular fundraising event presented by La Lega Dei Viscayani will feature live entertainment, free-flowing spirits, and costume contests. Tickets cost $150, and proceeds benefit the restoration and preservation of Vizcaya. Call 305-856-4886, or visit
