Can someone please explain to me what the heck is happening with Halloween costumes for women?
Darn near every costume for a female has been sexified some how. You wanna be a fireman? Ok,  you can be a sexy fireman in a skin-tight dress and fishnet stockings. How about a zombie? you can be a sexy zombie with cleavage a-plenty.
Even costume based on fairy tale characters and kid's cartoon characters have been sexed up.

Why? Why are female costumes like this?? I  guess it all falls into the old marketing ploy of  "sex sells" and boy is that the truth. If it wasn't, then these costumes still would't be around. 
ALSO...
The companies keep making them because parents keep BUYING them!

This blog post was originally supposed to feature funny men's costumes but as I was doing my search for products to feature I came across some costumes for teen-aged girls that ranged from inappropriate to offensive to just down right disturbing. Adult costumes are being made in teen sizes and placed in juniors section of Halloween shops all over the US. Yes, the costumes women wear for their husbands in the privacy of their bedrooms are being sold to TEENS for Halloween.

 And I know some of you are reading this thinking, "No one is making these girls wear these costumes" or "Why don't the parents just make the costumes themselves?"
Well, not everyone has the time, talent, resources, imagination or the know-how to make a Halloween costume. And guess what? The Halloween companies know this and they're taking advantage of it. 
They know of the scantily clad pop-culture icons teens are emulating these days and they also know that society now sees Halloween as that one special day when the average woman gets to dress like a stripper. 
C'mon parents . Break the cycle. 

Your job as a parent is to protect your baby girl-
not dress her up like a piece of meat and throw her into the lion's den.

No. NO. NO!!

by Andy Marlette

If you're currently on the hunt for the perfect Halloween costume for your teen-aged daughter I'm sure you've already come across plenty of provocative trash and you're probably both quite frustrated. 

Here are ten classic Halloween costumes that teen girls love that are available in modest lengths and styles. The first photos on the left were a piece of cake to find.... the modest version on the right - surprise -  not so much.

I highly encourage you to seize the opportunity this season to talk to your daughters about modesty. Remind her of how beautiful she is, tell her how much you love her and that modesty is a virtue that should be practiced even on Halloween.

modest teen witch costume
Cute Witch - $31.36
Pair the longer dress with leggings and boots for super cute delightfully wicked costume.

modest Sally costume
Sally From the Nightmare Before Christmas - $21.99
The first costume isn't all that bad - however, for a girl aiming to look like the actual Sally Doll from the movie, the option on the right is the way to go.

modest Little Red Riding Hood costume
Little Red Riding Hood - $49.99
The costume on the left is another "adult-turned-teen" costume. Sick.
If your daughter wants to be Little Red Rising Hood, the best way to go is to stay out of retail stores and seek out a costume made by a theater costuming company.

modest Holloween costumes
Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz - $26.60
In stores, you might only be able to find a sexy Dorothy costume, but luckily this costume is so common, it's very easy to find the original version online.

modest gypsy Halloween costumes
Gypsy/Fortune Teller - $44.99
The costume on the left is another adult costume placed on a teen. At least they had the decency to add a little bit of modesty with tights and boots but I've seen this costume in person and it is extremely short. The alternative on the right is elegant, just as colorful and very unique! 

UPDATE 2017: This particular costume doesn't seem to be available anymore but this one HERE is close.

modest pirate Halloween costume
Pirate Lass - $36.52 
The costume on the left is... no. Just no.
If your daughter wants to be a pirate, encourage her to dress as a pirate who knows she doesn't need to show her butt to kick butt.

modest fairy Halloween costumes
Pixie/Fairy - $36.65
A fairy costume is one of the few costume that I feel a short skirt is kind of acceptable. That's how fairies are often depicted - in cute little dresses. However, costuming companies have decided to take things a step further by not only making the costumes short, but overly sexy as well.
Fairy costumes are very common, so you should be able to find a non-sexy fairy costume for your daughter both in stores and online.
For added modesty, wear over colorful printed leggings.

nonsexy snow white haloween costume
Snow White - $Varies
I've tried on that same costume on the left... at an ADULT NOVELTY STORE. Need I say more?
You might not be able to find a modest Snow White costume in a retail store but you should be able to find it with ease online with quality ranging from one-time-wear to authentic Disneyland princess.

nonsexy vampire costume
Vampire - $64.99
When I was younger I always wanted to be a vampire for Halloween but the only vampire costumes available was for boys. Now that vampires have become a huge part of pop-culture, vampire costumes for girls are quite common but be forewarned they can be pretty risque.
If you're looking for a glamorous but modest vampire costume avoid using the word "vampire" or you'll get garbage like this:
Try using alternate keywords like Vampiress, gothic Victorian, gothic masquerade

modest Halloween costumes
Tiger - $27.99
The costume on the left was one of the most tame tiger costumes I could find (no pun intended).
The costume on the right are actually pajamas that are growing in popularity as street-wear. These one-pieces are fun, practical, effortless and come in many other animal styles.  This costume also comes in 25 other animals to choose from! Including a unicorns, cats and Pokemon!

  2. Except, gy**y is a racial slur and that costume is pretty racist. :( The rest are great, though-- great job.

    1. I'm super glad you like my post. Where I live, we have many gypsies. They call themselves gypsies, they don't mind being called gypsies. I even play a character called Daniella Noir the Gypsy Queen at a renaissance faire who is modelled after Russian gypsies. I have many followers and no one has ever complained about my usage of the word or my representation of the culture even though I'm black because I play a gypsy to glorify and celebrate them - not to mock or shun. I feel that dressing as a gypsy is a beautiful thing as they are very beautiful and fascinating people and dressing as one makes me feel beautiful - the same as dressing as any other culture. As long as you are respectful and not intending to mock or offend then it's just fine. The costume on the right isn't racist in the least bit. It's modest, not-sexual and colorful - more of a fantasy portrayal of gypsies, or storybook style but not racist at all.
