  • How does one dress as a Mormon exactly? I mean you can dress up like a nun & everyone would know you mean "catholic"..but you know, I know some mormons & they wear clothes just like everybody else I know. I know those missionary guys that come to your door wear blue suites & name tags but...yeah..mormon women wear..what exactly...that makes them look "Mormon"?

  • I also don't know how you would 'dress mormon' but its halloween so really who cares?? It's a costume.. people dress up as strange and crazy stuff all over the place, what would be so 'wrong' about being a mormon?? Nobody's going to know she's an atheist if she's out trick or treating with kids.. and if she goes to a party where people know her then they would probably get the joke.. right?? Doesn't seem like a problem to me..

  • I agree with lisa89j... how exactly do you dress up as a Mormon? Also, I would say it depends on the intent behind the atheist friend wearing the costume. If the idea was to make-fun of Mormons, I would have an issue with it. If it was just for the sake of people trying to figure out your costume, I'd say that's fine.

  • DRess as a MORMON? This is the dumbest question ever!!!
    Try again.
    I suspect you want to discuss religious prejudice and politically correct issues etc. but this is not the best way to do it. What do you think a Mormon looks like????? LOL. How silly.

  • Dressed as a Mormon for Halloween? YES, it is insulting. I never knew Mormons looked a certain way. I know many Mormons and none of them look different from anyone else walking around the city.

    I wonder if it would be insulting to dress as a moron who asks stupid questions?
