Halloween really is not what it used to be. It starts in September or that’s when stores start putting out items adorned with pumpkins, ghosts and black cats. It has also apparently become a time to flaunt your little girl’s sexuality should she go out trick or treating in certain costumes.
It almost makes me feel nostalgic for Disney Princesses. (Almost; more on these later.)
2. HalloweenCostumes.com’s “Devilina” get-up is very similar to “Devil Diva” but with a ballerina twist.
3. Wal-Mart also offered the “Naughty Leopard” costume (it’s been removed from shelves after an uproar). The only giveaway that this costume was based on an animal is a headband with large black ears and a few leopard spots on parts of a purple dress.
4. Party City’s ”Precious Leopard” costume continues with the lace-up bodice theme but with hot pink ribbons and far more obvious leopard spots.
5. The off-the-shoulder sleeves of Target’s fluorescent pink “Peg the Pirate“ costume should lead many a parent to insist that their daughter cover up with a sweater on October 31.
