Are Halloween costumes for kids too sexy?
Halloween is just around the corner. If you are a parent of a tween or teen-age girl, you may have noticed the disturbing trend in Halloween costumes now on the market. ‘Sexy’, rather than ‘scary’ or ‘cute’ has become the look in Halloween attire for females.
How the times have changed. When I as a tween there were two types of costumes: Cute or scary. Sexy was not among the choices.
What happen to modest Halloween costumes?
Tween – Teen Halloween Costume Hall of Shame
Since when does a provocative Goldi-locks costume fit the category of spooky, or even cute? Would you allow your nine-old daughter to leave the house dressed like this for Halloween?
I know that the model in this photo certainly isn’t nine, but the site spirithalloween.com has this costume along with other overly provocative costumes listed for tweens.
These clothes are way too suggestive for someone between the ages of 8 and 12.
Anniecostumes has an entire line of sexy teen costumes titled ‘Sexy Teen.’
Yandy says on their website “Teen Halloween costumes from Yandy.com offer the right amount of coverage, but are still cute and sexy.”
This “Jr Rag Doll costume” from Yandy doesn’t cover much.
8-year-old models are featured on websites wearing child-sized versions of skimpy costumes that used to be reserved for adults.
Is that a tattoo on that child’s arm?
Even Little Bo Peep comes with a corset, short skirt and lacy petticoat.
buycostumes.com is selling something called a “Child’s Chamber Maid Costume.” . The costume includes a panne dress with sheer sleeves and a separate apron and choker.
Alice in Wonderland seems pretty innocent to me, but halloweencostumeideas.com has an Alice in Wonderland costume that does not deliver an innocent message. The costume features a blue and white cotton mid-thigh length dress. The front features a corset that laces up with a blue ribbon. The child model in the photo is wearing a white lace petticoat under the short dress and white knee high stockings.
Noah Cyrus’ Halloween costume controversy
Noah Cyrus, younger sister of super star Miley Cryus caused quite the stir last year when she attended Jamie Lee Curtis’ Halloween party dressed as a———–. I don’t know what she was suppose to be. However, the costume was inappropriate for a nine year old. Don’t you agree?

It’s obvious that these costumes are selling. The costume companies know this that is why each year costumes for females become more provocative.
At what point do we put our food down and just say, no, this is not appropriate for children?
What’s your opinion? Do you agree with me that these costumes are inappropriate for children?
Parents please don’t miss out on the opportunity to explain to your daughter why dressing “sexy” for Halloween is inappropriate.
