Halloween has become an increasingly adult holiday, and you can see it reflected in the costumes marketed to children.
If you look around the shops and many of the girls Halloween costumes are sexualized. Of course, this is a trend everywhere in clothes of the girls, but it is even more evident at Halloween, when the skirts are getting shorter and shorter, necklines get lower exposing deep cleavages, and suddenly girls wants to be nurse or french maid.
Change in Girls Halloween Costumes Dress with Age :
While men often cover themselves entirely in Grim Reaper and Skeleton costumes, women hallowen costumes are designed to expose there legs by having short to ultra short skirts. These skirts leave little to hide.
The tops goes smaller with age , expose a great deal of their full grown breasts. When did this start happening, and what are the reasons it continues on today?
“In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total slut and no other girls can say anything else about it.”
For children, Halloween is a time to dress up as something ‘scary’, as a character they love or perhaps in the uniform of a profession they aspire to: a doctor, a fire fighter, a builder.
But once adolescence hits, the goalposts change – for girls, anyway.
