Halloween costume stress and a GIVEAWAY!
:::::GIVEAWAY AT END OF POST:::::
I grew up in a country where we didn’t celebrate Halloween. There were no decorated houses, no dress-ups and *gasp* no trick or treating. I enjoyed Halloween vicariously through American sitcoms on TV. I could taste the candy…almost. Fast forward thirty odd years and skip a continent and here I am – not in America – but in Australia and who knew, but Aussies celebrate Halloween! Yeah, baybee! The first couple of years were easy – a Miss M was a witch (read: old black t-shirt of mine, with edges cut in zig-zags and a pointy hat), Little Man was a tiger and Baby G wanted to be a bunny – easy! A onesie with a pompom sewn on the bum, some bunny ears (left over from the #2 shop at Easter time) and some face-paint. I can face-paint like a champ, so we were all happy.
This year, Miss M asked if we could look in the shops for costumes. There are 2 options – really hot (temperature-wise) Superhero costumes and really hot (as in sexy) other costumes. What gives? Apparently, from what I see on sale online and at the shops, my little girl can go as a) a sexy pirate (hollywoodheartbreaker.com), b) a sexy cat or c) sexy Alice in Wonderland. Fabulous.
So, here’s my question for you. Are Halloween costumes for kids getting too sexy, or am I a prude?
Here’s the fun part! I will be giving away this adorable baby pea-in-a-pod costume, by AussieBuby.com! They have a range of amazing, beautifully-made costumes on their website, so please check them out.
