Like any other sorority girl, I’ve had Halloween on the mind for close to a month now. Sure, it’s more than a month away, but you’ve gotta stake your dibs early to score a good costume, amiright? Of course, I can’t let the cat out of the bag as to what I’ll be dressing up as this October (just to make sure you skanks don’t copy me), but I can guarantee that if I’m going to be wearing this costume to parties, it’s going to show a
little lot of skin, and I’m guessing most of you have the same idea in mind. If you’re planning to go with the “naughty” look, there are plenty of classic looks that you can always pull off in a pinch: the Playboy bunny, the nurse, the schoolgirl, the maid, and of course, the cat. There have been many sexy kitties since the dawn of Halloween, but Walmart has now extended the genre of naughty cat to include, that’s right, the toddler market.
This holiday season, Walmart is offering something that has apparently been missing from all of our lives – the “naughty leopard” Halloween costume for 3 to 4-year-old girls. Although this outfit doesn’t show all the skin you’d expect to see on a naughty leopard at a frat party, it has all of the other characteristics down pat: black and magenta tones, see-through fabric, fishnets, a corset top, and of course, the ears.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for some PG-13+ Halloween costume action, but this is insanely creepy. My guess is that the same kind of creep who’ll take a gamble on a 17-year-old decided that these girls might as well go ahead and start luring men in early. It seems to me that the only groups this costume will be successful with are a) parents who don’t mind pedophiles hitting on their daughters who can barely walk, or b) trashy rednecks that are under the very mistaken impression that this is “cute.” This costume IS being marketed at Walmart after all. If you’re even considering buying it, I speak for everyone when I beg you to reconsider. Not only will buying this for your precious little pre-schooler NOT help get her “slut” phase out of her system early, but you’re starting her down a dangerous, dangerous path full of child porn and many embarrassing visits to the student health center. Save us all some trouble, and just log onto Pinterest for all your costume needs from now on, okay?
