Naughty + Super-Scary Halloween Costumes For Kids Are Showing Up On Store Shelves — Are These Too Much? [PICTURES]
It’s pretty much old hat now…Halloween has become less about the “scare” factor and more about the “sexy” factor. And Wal-mart’s recent choices are kind of both.
First, the costume for toddler girls called the “Naughty Leopard”. Admittedly, there’s nothing age-inappropriate about the costume itself, but Wal-mart caught flack for the name. They stopped selling it shortly after the “story” broke.
Now, the boys are under attack…with a costumer called “Demented Doctor” that’s aimed at boys as young as seven. The blood-spattered lab coat…the crazy red mask…the enormous syringe…
What do you think? Are people overreacting? It IS Halloween after all…it’s supposed to be scary. But…for a 7 year old? Thoughts?
