This is the costume I saw that sparked the idea for this post:
It’s called Addams Family Secret Wishes Wednesday Addams costume.
I don’t know about you, but when I think of Wednesday Addams I think of something more along the lines of this:
A sweet, adorable little Gothic Wednesday Addams costume. Not Wednesday all grown up and sexed out. And really? “Secret wishes?” What’s up with that kind of name for a costume? Eeesh, very borderline pervy!
But wait, that’s not the only one I’ve seen this Halloween. There’s a couple of Alice in Wonderland costumes that are pretty sexy:
2. California Costumes Women’s Alice in Wonderland costume (It says “women’s” in it’s description, but the model is clearly a teen.)
Compared to something like the Disguise Costume Women’s Alice costume (pictured below), the above two Alice costumes sure do strike me as borderline pervy. (Something from a pedophile’s fantasy perhaps? Gives me shivers, because I’m wondering who the heck designs these things?)
Then there’s another fiction heroine who’s got a sexy get up for Halloween this year: Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.
Compare the above to the Wizard of Oz Dorothy costume below:
Exhibit A is a far cry from the wholesome Judy Garland-inspired Dorothy most people associate with the costume presented in Exhibit B, that’s for sure! I have a feeling that first Dorothy would have mighty different adventures on the Yellow Brick Road with the Scarecrow, Lion, and Tinman. Ones Toto might have to hide in his basket from!
But the costumes I’ve found most disturbing so far this Halloween are these two:
But maybe it’s just my age catching up to me. What do you think? Do any of the above strike you as borderline pervy?
