The evolution of Halloween costumes for girls…

this is really important

This is why I get upset about the sexy costumes at Halloween.  Not because you don’t have the right to be sexy—you absolutely, absolutely do.  But because while you might be able to find costume #3 in a tween size in each of these rows, I can guarantee that in almost all cases, you will not find costume #2 in a teen or adult size.

Babies/toddlers get to be cute.  Kids/tweens get to be fun and spooky and still have modesty, if they want it.  Teens who aren’t on the small end are already getting the sexy, even if they really just want fun, spooky, and a skirt that goes below mid-thigh.  And adults?  LOL nope it’s sexy or nothing.

Everyone who is of an age to want sexy should be allowed to have sexy.  But “not sexy” should always be on the table as well, because sometimes you just want to be warm and cozy and filling a pillowcase with strangercandy.

Very relevant to this blog.

respexual asked: I saw the girl pirate one you just posted and felt a little sick. These are children, dammit. Why can't we let them have imaginations and dress up as junior pirates WITHOUT MAKING THEM SEXY PIRATE LITE I can taste my own bile. What are we doing...


Yep, I find some of the costumes for children really creepy.

Another thing I keep noticing is that the poses for the boys costumes are often related to the character, whereas the girls poses are more like an adult model. 




These two costume comparisons are good examples of this as well.

In a lot of reviews for girls costumes, the parents said the dress/skirt in the costume they bought their child was too short, so they chose to pair it with leggings. Clearly that’s a sign that the costumes should be made longer!
