Don't be tricked into buying these costumes!

I was reading this article from Newsweek that talks about Halloween costumes, and the changes over the past few years with the industry designs becoming more edgy and inappropriate for children. It's easy to get distracted by the fun of Halloween, and we might not pay as much attention to the message such costumes is sending. I totally agree with the writer's perspective, and I can't believe how much worse they have gotten. When I was a kid, we crafted our own costumes at home and used our imagination and we loved being unique from everyone. We never cared about looking cute, sometimes we looked pretty funky--but it was all for fun and we probably saved mom and dad a lot of money. The article featured in Newsweek is a must read especially if you haven't bought your kids outfits yet. Check it out and post your comment too.

  3. I totally agree that things are getting out of hand with the girls costumes. I blogged earlier about my daughter's Pirate costume. I made her one because what the market has to offer was just plain sleazy. What are these moms thinking?!
