Dont shoot me , i did not name the story the writer did.
If you read the story and check out the links he posted it will show you some
what he said are inappropriate costumes.

i have seen some inappropraite costumes, but the ones listed i dont see anything wrong with.. i dont think someone who is pedophile is going to care

hm ok maybe this one, i would not let a young girl wear.

anyway, i dont think someone who is a pedophile is going to care all that much if girl or boy is wearing a costume

Oh hell no! How old is the girl in that picture? That looks way too mature for someone that age

ugh looking at all of those pictures, those girls are way too made up! These companies just want to make money, and don't care who they exploit. It's very sad. I'm not a prude, but i wouldn't be letting my young child walk out in a short skirt and fishnets!

Jeesh! Did they have enough makeup on? I wouldn't wear that much during a show!!

I don't think any of those costumes are appropriate for young girls - no 8-year-old needs to be baring her midriff, IMO. Whatever happened to dressing up as a ghost or ET?

But I had to laugh at the first couple of sentences of that article - talk about sensationalist fear-mongering! Though I dunno...that might just be the writer's style.

lol makeup? gee i did not even notice they had make up on. until i saw both of your comments.

And no, a eight old does not get to wear make up..

But anyway, do you think that would attact a pedophile?

That outfits suitable for an older teenager as in 18-19, but not a younger one IMO.

Theres too many kids growing up to be adults before they should be these days

And yes, i do think dressing up like that would attract them "more"

The sad part is I've seen young girls dress like that when it's not Halloween

I think alot of kids are trying to grow up quicker now days and the parents are letting them. If I had a little girl, she wouldn't be allowed to wear those things (Halloween or NOT).



I thank god everyday I have two boys...... who are going as Jason

Not MY granddaughters! Thank goodness, they have a sensible mother. The girls dress as clowns, Dalmatians or kitties, for Halloween.

Sorry but I have to disagree. Those costumes are too "adult" for young girls.

On this morning's local news they were telling parents to print out a list of local perverts, which have the addresses included, and to not go there trick or treating. The newscaster had the list in her hand.

If you're in the U.S. that information can be found here http://www.fbi.gov/hq/cid/cac/registry.htm .

Today's Washington Post has an article on the trend toward "sleazy" Halloween costumes for preteens: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...95.html?sub=AR

Quote:
Joe Thaler, head of TransWorld Exhibits Inc., runs the annual Halloween Expo for big-box retailers. He said suggestive costumes for girls burst onto the scene about three years ago and the phenomenon is so big that he's had to create a separate fashion show. The costumes have since moved to the plus-size market for adult women and now come in teen and preteen versions. Even little girl costumes show more leg and tummy than they used to. "They're just good sellers," Thaler said.

Eh, I don't really see anything wrong with those costumes themselves except that they are incredibly boring and uninteresting.

Well, the Devil Grrrl is kind of offensive on a few levels, not in the least for taste. I was a Devil for Halloween when I was 9 and I looked especially cute and actually a little "hot," but I was not nearly showing that much skin. I put the outfit together from some regular red clothes I had gotten; it wasn't a pre-packaged costume.

Maybe this is more of a problem in other areas, but I don't see this being a problem in the Mid-west. Why? Because it's cold! I was a Belly Dancer/Arabian Girl (something like that) for Halloween when I was 10. The outfit had a short top with pants. I wore the short top to the school Halloween parade, but when I went out that night I wore a long sleeved bodysuit under it! I would have freezed early on if I hadn't.

Unless you are a really bad parent, you aren't going to let your daughter go Trick-or-Treating dressed in something that bares a lot of skin at 50°F or 55°F.

IMO, the original writer is probably right - dressing like that CAN pander to a pedophile's fantasy, which I do find vile and disgusting. Time to use the old saying, "If you don't want moths, turn off the light". Commonsense still works, even in this high-tech day and age

Those articles and costumes make me glad that my daughter wants to be the sandworm from Beetlejuice for Halloween.
