Help Your Daughter Create a Non-Sexualized
Fun or Scary Halloween Costume !
Challenge your daughter to come up with creative & fun costumes, or these scary costumes as an alternative to sexualized costumes at Halloween.
Here's how to make the colorful hot air balloon costume on the right.
It's amazing what girls can accomplish when they stand up and publicly reject attempts to sexualize them or make them focus on beauty and looks -- like Texas cheerleaders who refused to wear skimpy uniforms, or the teenage girls in Texas who chose not to wear makeup to school.
And the 14 year old girl protested impossible beauty standards at Seventeen Magazine and started a successful online petition that convinced Seventeen magazine to stop airbrushing its models.
Way to go ! Just say NO to sexualized Halloween costumes for girls !
Shop in the Boys or Men's Section to Find Halloween Costumes for Your Daughter
It's the Only Place You'll Find Costumes That Actually Have Pants !
You know, you never see a police officer who goes out and fights crime without any pants on.
But pretty much every single police officer or cop costume for teen girls and women is a "sexy cop" outfit, with an extremely short skirt or dress (usually paired with stripper high heels or fishnet stockings) that looks like you're headed straight for the Playboy Mansion.
So, it's best to shop in the boys section or the men's section to find a great Halloween costume for your daughter (hey, and for yourself too, you should be a good role model for your daughter !) You'll find a terrific selection of costumes that actually come with pants, as shown in the photos on the left -- like Captain America (yes, a girl can be Captain America!), a pirate captain, and the classic police officer (with pants !)
