Hi all, my first post here. I wasn't sure if I should ask this to my friends/roommates so am trying online.

I am a senior in college and have always been over-weight. Over the last year I have been slowly getting in shape and I'm sort of at a good weight now. And, I want to have a little bit of fun for my last year.

For this Halloween, I want to finally be able to wear something that can be considered "attractive" or "sexy" to women, but not too flashy. Usually i'm Mario or something funny like that. I was a pirate last year (an over-weight one), but this year I want to be either a policeman or fireman. Which one do you guys think would be better ? I want to have fun/have a good time with my friends in the bars and parties we will hit up, but I also want to look good.

Question for women: Based purely on aesthetics, which of the two is better ? Is there anything else you might recommend

- I'm 5'11", and ...almost lean.

A short sleeved policeman uniform would allow you to show off more skin than the fireman one probably would. Caveman or Roman/Egyptian themed costumes probably would too.

Either one but haven't been done to death every year?

Years ago a guy came to a Halloween costume party as an Asian Prince, 1001 Nights type. It didn't hurt that he was tall, dark and handsome at all but something about that costume and his regal bearing in it and the women drooled like idiots, myself included. It probably wouldn't work though if you are fair skinned. I also like lumberjack, Men (manly men) in Tights if you have good legs or find a vintage tux that's well fitted and top hat and go as an old school aristocrat.

Maybe the younger crowd is different but I tend to like a sharp dressed man (even in costume) and just the faintest whiff of sexy adding to the fun of discovery rather than overtly sexy which smacks to me of trying to hard. Just my old fart views.

Congratulations on your fitness success.

Most gals I know love a man in uniform.... I happen to be especially fond of Firemenm because many of the men in my life are now or once were firemen. They are not always in turnout gear, so the usual day uniform would work.
Another thought that might interest you...
How about going as James Bond? Or maybe Bella Lugosi as Dracula or maybe Donald Trump or OHHHHH I KNOW THE prefect costume! Go as James Dean!!!! The girls will be droolin all over you!
Best of luck!!!! I'll be pullin for ya!

How about Obama as the headless horsemen? I had a black friend that dressed up as KKK. It was politically incorrect but oh so funny.

We had a party one year and one of the guys was a caveman. His costume looked great and he was showing off his bod.

I'd prefer the fireman over the policeman, but the fireman's uniform and gear would not leave any part of your newly-sculpted bod unrevealed. For that reason, I chose policeman.

Congrats on your remodeled self!
