I think there's a line between sexy and inappropriate. I don't want to see your areola, nipples, booty cheeks, or booty crack. If there's cleavage and your booty cheeks are at least covered, even if it's in paint, that's fine. Just, not at my kid's party. If it's an all adult party (not at work), go for it!

I must admit, when I went to the specialty shop for my son's costume, I saw quite a few outfits I wanted to buy... for the bedroom. Hoping one of them will be in my Christmas stocking...

The other girl that was with us is a Tom boy and couldn't find a costume she was interested in. What adults do at parties is their business but there isn't enough options for adults and kids that don't want to be part of the slutty attired group. I'm wondering what message this sends to my girls as well. One of them came as a semi slutty version of a cheetah last year. What was her mother thinking?

I think the female costume in the picture is supposed to be Columbia, not Magenta.

Agree.... wonder if we shop in the same Chicago Halloween costume stores. I took my 11 y.o. daughter to a store to get a costume last week. We started in the kid section and I was surprised with how sexualized the costumes had become. Costumes were either too babyish (e.g. cookie monster) for her or too sexy (e.g. sexy teenage pop star).

To top it off, she is tall for her age so in a size 14. I couldn't find a size 14 in the kids' section. When I asked the clerk for her size, she told me they don't carry many size 14's because the girls can wear the adult small.

So we went to the adult section and, guess what, everything was sluttified (is that a word?). She was thinking about being Alice in wonderland, Queen of Hearts, or a hockey player. We found all these costumes in the adult section, but they were all sluttified... LOL.... Sleazy hockey player with tight, short, low cut hockey jersey (which read "Puck You") with go-go boots cracked me up.

Anyhow, I guess now is as good time as any to learn how to sew a costume.

(May not be friendly for work, if you work someplace where a woman in a giant vagina costume is frowned upon.)

When I see chicks as a sexy cat or bumble bee I think of a Ron Burgundy
