Heidi with a bare midriff and naughty Alice-in-Wonderland wearing thigh-high stockings? It used to be that the razor blades in apples were the greatest threat to the innocent fun of Halloween. Now, it appears that racy costumes have taken over.
A Patch site in Santa Cruz, Calif. perused a local party store and found that the children’s costume section had been shoved to the back in favor of R-rated fare throughout, in plain view. A reporter for U-T TV in San Diego wondered about the message sent by racy adult costumes in her report.
It could just be how California does things. But Patch columnist Heather Geyer posed a similar question a year ago in Milwaukee.
So have Halloween costumes gone completely from scary to skanky? Or is this just one time a year when tweens, teens and grownups can push a few boundaries in the name of fun and full-size Snickers bars?
