Gabby Cirenza wanted to be a referee for Halloween. The outfit she liked had a micro-mini black skirt and a form-fitting black and white-striped spandex top held together with black laces running up the flesh-exposing sides. She looked admiringly at the thigh-high black go-go boots that could be bought as an accessory. And she thought the little bunny on the chest was cute.
"Absolutely not," said her mother, Cheryl. "That is so not happening."
Gabby is 11.
And the Playboy Racy Referee costume was only the latest that her mother had vetoed one pre-Halloween-crazed afternoon at Party City in Baileys Crossroads as too skimpy, too revealing, too suggestive .
Bawdy Halloween costumes, however, have become the season's hottest sellers in recent years. Not just for women, but for girls, too. And parents such as Cirenza don't like it.
Gabby eyed the Sexy Super Girl but decided against it. A friend at her Catholic school had worn that costume for a Halloween parade and pulled the already short miniskirt way up to cover her tummy. "That didn't look very good." But Gabby did like the Aqua Fairy, a vampy get-up with a black ripped-up skirt, black fishnet tights and blue bustier that comes in medium, large and preteen. A medium fits a child of 8.
How about the Funky Punk Pirate Pre-Teen, with an off-the-shoulder blouse and bare midriff?
Gabby pointed to the Fairy-Licious Purrrfect Kitty Pre-Teen, which, according to the package, includes a "pink and black dress with lace front bodice and sassy jagged skirt with tail. . . . Wings require some assembly."
Cheryl Cirenza shook her head in exasperated disbelief. "This is all so inappropriate. It's really disturbing."

Halloween = National Dress Like a Whore Day.
or you could look at it the OTHER way. lots of churches do a hallelujah night/ trunk or treat.
safe place for the kids to have fun, get candy and evangelise. invite your children’s schoolmates/ neighborhood kids.
Or sit out on your porch and pass out tracts, or bible verses attached to candy.
the best way to evangelise is to go where God is needed most. God didn’t give the great commission saying, “hang out in church and hope the sinners come to you” he said “go into all the world preaching the gospel.”
The sad part is the sorry ass parenting that would allow a child to dress like that will probably result in her growing up to be a slut.
i was thinking about the old devil’s night tradition in detroit.. arson!
unfortunately, the city would probably subsidize it to get rid of some of the blight, taking all the fun from it.
I dont know about you; but I am tired of seeing boobs hanging out; stomachs showing and butt cracks in public.
. . .
Okay, okay . . . Point taken. I’ll try to dress more modestly.
I wonder if after shaking her head she kept her children in public schools.
The Cirenzas are friends of mine. They are devout Catholics and their kids all attend Catholic schools. Cheryl is a fulltime mom and does a great job. Their girls all dress very modestly.
But not all Catholic school parents are as conservative. I know a few there in Alexandria who would never dream of sending their kids to public schools, but their daughters are sluts.
Because of the Samhain roots of Halloween, I am not a bit surprised at the revealing nature of costumes for Halloween. It is not a good 'helliday' to keep.
Oh he’s a fan, I’m not saying he isn’t...but I heard he’s a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
Then you better stay away from Christmas trees too.
50 years ago everyone made their own costumes. Mothers, Fathers and children would be creative and use their imagination to create some pretty fantastic costumes. Now you just pick something up at the store.
Looks like the Almighty is pulling for the New England Patriots this year. That's the only explaination I can think of...
In the Big Inning God created...
Actually, I don't celebrate Christmas with Christmas trees either.
He said suggestive costumes for girls burst onto the scene about three years ago and the phenomenon is so big that he's had to create a separate fashion show. The costumes have since moved to the plus-size market for adult women and now come in teen and preteen versions. Even little girl costumes show more leg and tummy than they used to. "They're just good sellers," Thaler said.
This guy Thaler is a CRAPITALIST. and he is a scumbag to boot. If they all wanted to go around with crotchless panties and a a shirt that said "Jihad" on it, you would make it for them, you creep, if it was a "good seller"? Mein Kampf sold well, too, you piece of sh!t. But then again, it goes back to the majority of parents, who have failed their kids time and time again in the past and present, and will claim ignorance as to why they never amounted to anything in the future.
I have a 10-year-old daughter (she used to be friends with Gabby Cirenza, and got a big kick out of this story) and I am grateful that she is not interested in slutwear, even for Halloween. She and her friend are going as "The Blues Sisters," with black suits and ties, hats, and sunglasses. I don't think I will see any junior hoes in my neighborhood either.
And in the Seventh Month of the season (October), the Yankee bats rested...
I’m amazed the Compost actually used the term “Halloween” instead of the more PC “Harvest Day.”
Reformed Baptist here. We’ll be celebrating 490 years of Reformation theology tomorrow night!
