Halloween happens to be my favorite time of the year, and one which I tend to draw out as long as possible. One issue that I have with the best holiday ever, however, is the shall we say….incredibly crappy costumes made available for women. Now, I admit that this is not exactly a problem that affects me since I have not purchased a store bought costume for a good many years now. I just wish that ladies had better options for when we do not have time to put something custom together. Looking at the Halloween Costume websites every year is something that fires my inspiration to beat the new costumes with a quality stick of my own creation that rips their ridiculous, shoddy, yet somehow expensive choices into bitty little pieces. Teeeeny tiny pieces of party hooker-ware. Spirit is the one store that is at least trying to put out stuff that is not basically street lingerie versions of popular characters. They also have the best Guardians of the Galaxy Gamora option that I have seen so far, so I still have an amount of respect for them. Winding down to the end of my rant now. If these sellers would just stop listing lingerie as full on costumes, that would be awesome. We are even charged more than men for a slutted up costume of the same character. Why would we pay more for that bullcrap?
A visual example of why I am annoyed:
|Really? This is Bumblebee? Really? And $79.99? No.
