From wild and wacky ensembles at American Apparel to a host of grab-and-go costume shops to a variety of top-notch vintage stops, there's no shortage of All Hallow's Eve outfitters in this town. Those opting for naughty over nice typically flock to legendary lingerie retailer Frederick's of Hollywood, the master of barely-dressed to impress disguises.

Lest you be spotted in the same get-up twice (Halloween party-hopping is hard, no?), the sexy suitings supplier has rolled out another range of two-for-one reversible corsets, in addition to the rest of their signature skin-baring styles. Rather than the typical racy what-to-wear roundup, we thought we'd have a little festive fun and take a look at a few of Freddy's silliest and sexiest outfits, from 1997 to now.
