Hooker, or ninja? I can't tell.

Ninja?  Really?
Who the hell can do sneaky ninja stuff in those shoes?

I'm guessing this costume is on sale for a reason. What kind of ninja wears something like that? Clearly, I'm missing something. Clearly, the idea for Halloween is no longer to dress up so that you look like a recognizable character or wear a clever disguise. Now, apparently, the idea is to find a street corner and make a few extra bucks. (Unless, of course, you're a guy, and then you pretty much get to wear whatever you want.)

Apparently, the trend is pervasive, according to an article (subscription required) in the Fashion section of the New York Times.

"The trend is so pervasive it has been written about by college students in campus newspapers, and Carlos Mencia, the comedian, jokes that Halloween should now be called Dress-Like-a-Whore Day." (Emphasis mine.)

Fellas, I'm sure this is a trend that benefits you, and I've certainly worn short skirts on Halloween myself from time to time. But when we get to the point where women feel like they need killer abs to dress up like a ninja, it just seems less fun somehow.

Then again, it's only $28.99 for that costume. It'll pay for itself in no time.

This outfit would be perfect for a fashion suicide bomber. Just wear it over a pastel sweat suit with sheep skin slippers, stow the $1.99 nunchucks in a leopard print fanny pack and don a vinyl Australian outback hat with on side turned up.

No self-respecting ninja would be caught dead in that travesty. The platinum blonde hair would give her away anyway, but even if it didn't, neon yellow is not exactly conducive to hiding in shadows.

And then there are the gleaming white legs! Bunch of crap.

is she included with the costume? someone had to ask.

Oh my god, a hooker ninja?? That's like my number one fantasy.

She can stalk me any time.

Seriously, Indian Stallion. You're just walking down the street, minding your own business, when suddenly—a blur from the shadows! Knocked off balance, reeling into a dark alley, and before you know what's what, Hooker Ninja is sexing you up!

You should ask the Ninja about that (askaninja@gmail.com).

LOL @ Josh - they do that all the time, to get women to slap the crap out of their husbands in the street. They're secretly filming it, and it will end up on YouTube.

i wanna see some pasty 400lb tatted biker in that. now that's a halloween costume that'll scare the kiddies.

The real gender inequity here is that it is trivial to tuck in a pace maker at the time of a boob job, allowing the hooker-ninja an easy route to control her heart rate for ultimate stealthiness, without developing sophisticated mind-over-body powers. Although, I admit the need to develop mid-over-cellulite skills is heightened.

Oh man, now I want there to be a movie about hooker ninjas. Or a whole series... there just has to be a movie called Hooker Ninja II. With its own drinking game, of course.

this is reason number 14 I don't really like halloween. girls not only have to be creative, but sextastic. it's just too much pressure for little ole me.

Josh, that would make for a great porn movie. Like a ninja who goes around stalking men and forcing them to have sex with her. After which she bites their heads off. We will call it lethal hooker ninja mantis.

That's odd. I'd bet James Kew is just the actor you'd be able to get for a project like LHNM

check out the www link above to make sense of this

i just had to see

the K is far too close to the L on my keyboard.

Silky: He looks a little old. He could be like the hooker ninja's mentor.

I wouldn't mind playing a part as well. They don't call me Indian Stallion for nothing alright. (K fine I make them call me that)

Any backers?

Christopher Walken as the grizzled detective that finally "cracks the case".

Finally, after years of pondering, I can start on my screenplay. I was always lacking that perfect idea. I am worried though, did Troma ever make a ninja whore movie? If anybody has, it would be them.

In the meantime, they're casting for American soldiers to drink in a bar here in Thailand. The pay is about 15 dollars a day. Any takers?

If there is a Hooker Ninja II, it really has to have ": The Reckoning" after it. Just makes it sound more bad-ass. You could put ": The Reckoning" after pretty much any movie title and make it sound awesome. "Herbie the Love Bug II: The Reckoning". See?

Oh, and thanks for your comment on my blog. I snagged some Phenomenauts songs from iTunes, and am glad I did. Really looking forward to that show now.

Ghost Dog, you're right. "The Reckoning" is a must.

Indian Stallion, with a name like that, how is it possible that you're NOT already being stalked by ninja hookers?

Jeremy, we're already working on the casting -- start writing!

OK, Lisa and I checked out the costume web site. Now, why were you browsing that site? And which costume did you pick? Maybe I don't want to know.

R.D., I think the real question here is why were YOU browsing that site after already having had a preview? I was looking for a ninja costume. I opted instead to stick a ninja star in the back of my head and wear a button I got from jury duty that says, "JUROR."

I was looking for a nice comfy Cat Woman costume, of maybe something in the dominatrix style, but I opted instead to dress up (or down) as an aging former hippie/musician/software developer.
