My daughter has a full imagination and creativity to boot. One year, she wanted to be a rain cloud. Of course, there was no french-maid mockup of a cumulonimbus so we made the whole thing ourselves. She *STILL* talks about that costume. Her store-bought pirate costume from the following year (also a french-maid mockup...hmm) has been forgotten, all but the rather impressively sturdy hat.
This year, she wants to be a witch. After perusing the offerings of all of the local stores and shivering in disgust, I convinced her to be Hermione Granger. We can make that at home, it'll be warm, and it won't make her look like a baby hooker.
My daughter and every other child in this world deserves better than what is currently offered.

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!
