Those of you who know me will know the upcoming “festivities” for October are really not my favourite, in fact I think it’s save to say I loathe it!
And I loathe it for a number of reasons, some of which will not make me popular, so apologies if I offend your personally choices, but I won’t apologise for my opinion!
Trick or treating is a hideous pass time and it makes me furious! I don’t want your child knocking on my door and demanding sweets and threatening to trash my garden if I don’t give them! I don’t care if they’re cute little costumes and you are there to protect them! And if you’re old enough to come on your own don’t bother knocking on the door, because you won’t like the answer!
I’m sick of the blood and gore and horror! At any other time of the year you would scream blue murder at your precious little darling being exposed to a certificate 18 horror movie or inappropriate content on the TV – but it’s ok to dress them as a zombie or a vampire to demand sweets with menaces!
But mostly – and this is why I started the post in the first place is the issue of women’s costumes! I mean look!
Why the soldier in the first place, but mostly why the hot pants and fish nets?
And this is the norm! I mean seriously – this?
This is supposed to be a disney costume!!! Again why is this anything to do with your usual idea of halloween and why do you have to make Snow White into a pole dancer? This is the much loved character from a children’s film – do you want your little princess to be dressed like this?
I can’t even bring myself to show you the nurses outfits, as an ex nurse they make my blood pressure dangerously high!
Why does every woman’s costume have to have a mini skirt, or fish nets, or a corset and cleavage. Why does every woman going to a fancy dress party have to sexy? Why can’t her costume be clever, or witty. Why can’t she walk into the party and make everyone laugh rather than do their best Leslie Phillips impression and think “ding dong”
Girls if you are going to dress up for this hideous excuse for extortion, try a bit harder with your dressing up don’t dumb down to the “sexy” version !
