Sexualizing Girls' Halloween Costumes

We Hold The Power As Consumers

When I wrote "Little Girls Should Not Look Like Hookers for Halloween" last year, there was a flurry of comments about sexualizing girls via Halloween costumes.  Not one commenter said "Hey I'd buy those fishnets and that corset for my 10 year old." So if no one is buying them then why are sexy tween girl costumes still on store shelves?!

Just look at what we - consumers - can buy...

Alice in Wonderland

But doesn't Alice look like this?...

Frankenstein's Bride

But doesn't she look like this?...

A doctor

But don't doctors look like this?...

Who are marketers marketing to - with thigh-high costumes for tween girls?  Parents, we own what we buy...and what we allow our girls to buy into...

I've said it before and I'll say it again...Little Girls Should Not Look Like Hookers For Halloween!
