What's With the Sexy, Midriff-Baring Halloween Costumes for Little Girls?

Yesterday my coworkers were talking about how women love to wear slutty costumes on Halloween. The editors over at Shefinds even did a whole post devoted to sexy Halloween costumes. I’m not a big Halloween person myself, so I don’t really understand why it’s cool to dress like a hoochie on that one day. But to each her own, I guess.

My problem is when the trend starts trickling down to little girls, which apparently it has. Rubies sells tons of Halloween costumes, most of which are perfectly harmless. But they also sell these:

I know Halloween is supposed to be fun and light-hearted, but really, I think it’s inappropriate to send little girls out in costumes like these. Shorts skirts, exposed midriffs, makeup-covered faces–Halloween or no Halloween is this a message we want to send our girls? It’s fun to dress up like skanks?

No thanks. My 2-year-old will be amply covered on Halloween in this cupcake costume from Pottery Barn Kids. And if you don’t want your daughter walking around thinking it’s cool to dress like J-Woww from Jersey Shore, I’d advise you to do the same.
