For those of you who don’t know, last October I ran a Halloween City store. It was fun and difficult and every spectrum of emotions. But in the end it was mine and I did pretty well.
That’s not to say that there weren’t some weird things that happened. One of the strangest was the catalog. These were the items available in the company, though not necessarily in every store. As a parent and as someone who tries to think logically I was at a loss of words for some of these items. Sure I grew up with R rated movies becoming cartoons and action figures. But something seems safer with Rambo as a cartoon than a toddler walking around dressed as Pinhead.
Even more disturbing though is the costumes for girls and ladies. I’m all for sexy versions of whatever idea crosses a woman’s head. But can the costumes be changed a bit? I should not see an 8 year old and an 18 year old in the same costume. Same size and same amount of fabric too.
Then there is the just plain bizarre. Who would find an alien inspired flashy costume with sucker fingers to be sexy? I may have just answered my own question.
I included some photos of items I found to be the most inappropriate. Or just head scratching. Let me know if you agree or if you think I have just finally gotten to be too old.
