10 Halloween Costumes My Kids Will Never Wear

OMG 11

Halloween is the new Christmas, it seems -- the decorations come out earlier than ever, children get excited, and parents go more than a little bit crazy. The costume competition can be intense, and somehow the kids’ costume plans never seem to match mine

Which is fine, I guess. You can’t win them all. But there are some costumes I refuse to let my kids wear. Ever.

If you happen to see any of these types of costumes at your door this year -- and I imagine you will -- you can be assured those aren’t my kids in the inflatable slutty Gothic gangster ballerina costumes.

Will they be yours?

I'm fine with all the listed ones except the slutty ones and the religious ones, since we are not religious, I think it would be direspectful

All of those costumes were fine...It's Halloween, let them choose what they want to be.

so what would you be ok with dressing them as? seems like you've knocked off quite a bit of options, nothing skin tight, nothing with weapons, nothing evil, nothing scary...why trick or treat with them at all?

I didn't see anything wrong with any of them. The gothic ballerina is a little odd, but not horrible. The "sexy" pirate was a photo of an adult women, not a child. Big difference.

It's not really the same thing as a Gothic ballerina, but my daughter is going to be a vampire ballerina this year. Her inspiration came from the book Vampirina Ballerina.

I don't see a problem with any of them. The pirate costume was made for an adult.

So basically your kids will not be going out this Halloween....

I agree with the no hands ones... and most of the "air pump ones" come with a battery opperated fan.

Wow ... you are a load of fun ... NOT. My youngest son is going as the Grim Reaper. It's Halloween. Lighten up!
