New Column: Keep Halloween spooky. Not sexy.

My latest So Here’s The Thing column is up and running at the Washington Times Communities! I’m talking about skanktastic kids Halloween costumes.

Sure, the girl’s section had the requisite witches, princesses, and superheroes but there were also “flirty” costumes which were just tweened-down versions of the “sexy” genre so popular among women who are old enough to make informed choices. I don’t know about you, but putting a ten-year-old in a “flirty” cop’s outfit doesn’t make me want to smile with pride that this child aspires to be a law enforcement office. It makes me cringe that her parents are sending out of the house dressed like the entertainment for a bachelor party.

    Thank you for this! Like Kelly, I wonder who is buying this stuff. Let’s hope this trend is nearing its end.

    I was in Target, Walmart, Halloween stores and websites looking for something for 9 yr old daughter who is the size of a 13 year old and what I could find that fit her was slutty skanky costumes more appropriate for an exotic dancer than a tween/teen. I need to learn how to sew and then offer my sewing services to all mom’s of girls who need age appropriate halloween costumes. I think I could get rich…and don’t get me started on the clothing available to my not even 10 yr old who is way bigger than some 5th graders we know.
    THank you for you great writing as always!!
