Teen Costumes= Scary

I get it, it’s Halloween (which I love dearly), you’re supposed to dress up and get crazy and be someone other than yourself for at least a day. Understandable. It’s been a magical day since it’s inception as Samhain. However! I just took my 2 year old to look at costumes and I saw…a sexy cop outfit for about a five year old? What five year old wants to be that (if yours does I apologize and I hope you talk them out of it)? As an adult yeah sure, everything for Halloween can be slutty- slutty cat, slutty teacher, slutty cheeseburger:

Why?…cheeseburger does not equal sexy. EVEN SLUTTY CAREBEARS! The humanity of it all!

But hey you’re an adult…dress like you want. For teens however, their choices of costumes can be quite slim if they don’t want to be overly sexy (well lets face it for adults too).

Some of the best selling teen costumes are the sexified versions of the Disney princesses, anything Alice in Wonderland related sexified, and what I think is the worst idea ever, the sexy ninja turtle:

@Kat Hamblin  This should be us next year. Should do the whole crew. Love it! Tmt  girl style:

This is a ninja turtle:

Just sayin…

So here some still awesome ideas for costumes even if you want actual clothes on for Halloween.

Adventure Time!

Wayne and Garth…still a classic costume for a duo:

No I’m the only who parties!

Rock, Paper, Scissors. Clever.

One thought on “Teen Costumes= Scary

  1. kind o f love the shark week one lol. I agree that the costumes are too skimpy and inappropriate and it can be hard to find something if you are not willing to be 1/2 naked. It sends a bad message to pre-teen and teenage girls especially.
