If your family is like mine, you pull together Halloween costumes from items around your home. This is a more cost-effective way to celebrate the holiday and an easy way to avoid the sexualized and muscle-bound costumes sold to girls and boys.
I'd love for folks to upload images of creative homemade costumes they have made for their children to give parents ideas on how we can have a great holiday without buying into the sexualization and gender stereotypes being sold to our kids in the stores.
My daughter and son had a blast trick-or-treating as the Headless Horseman and A Nice Good Witch. Both kids made their costumes by themselves from items we had a home.
Now it is your turn to share a photo and costume idea!

Sexy and childhood don't go hand in hand - our children deserve a Halloween holiday free of sexualization! When consumers speak directly to retailers about concerns it allows retailers to adjust their merchandise accordingly. All it takes is one retailer to decide to be the one to stop selling these sexualized costumes for the rest to follow suit - let's urge Target to lead the charge!
