Remember when Halloween was a season to be scary, and only kids dressed up in costumes? Yeah, those times are as dead as Dracula. It seems every costume store saves a special section for getups that manage to add a racy twist to even the most everyday item or character.

We narrowed in on a grab bag of mostly science, sci-fi and fantasy-themed costumes that blur all kinds of lines we're not sure we want blurred.

Holy chest exposure, Batman! Please note this costume is labeled "Boy Sidekick," and naturally we have no idea whose sidekick they're talking about. Neither do any trademark attorneys out there.

This one raises the sexiness level of Darth Vader, though we highly doubt such a busy and important leader would don a corset.

Ever seen a physician walk into an exam room dressed like this? One wonders if this doctor scrubbed up before operating.

Yandy.com calls this a Sexy Undecided Voter costume, but we're kind of surprised they didn't just call it Kendra Bone, after you-know-who.

Be prepared to explain this one to those who don't obsess over online memes: a costume version of the infamous dress that divided America.

No way could she pass for Jason Voorhees' mother, so this costume is labeled "Jason's Babe."

This one's dubbed "Ms. Freddy Krueger." Maybe she hangs out with "Jason's Babe."

Yee-haw! This seems like a dangerous amount of skin to expose when out riding the range, but maybe this cowboy would fit right in in "Westworld."

It's a "Sexy Fighting Turtle." Not to be confused in any way with those other teenage turtles you may have heard of.
