Well, I’ve been hearing a lot about these “sexy” costumes, and many of them come from Yandy. Yeah, I put a link there, I understand that many of my readers are Christian, but if you don’t think you should click there, don’t.
There’s an example of Yandy’s work, and that is technically not a sexy Finding Nemo costume, it’s a “Crazy Orange Fish” (it’s one of the more tame looking ones). But yeah, what do you think when you see that? Sexy Nemo. And there is like a sexy Bugs Bunny costume, sexy SpongeBob, and if you can name something, it has been made sexy in a some form.
I think the big problem that most have with sexy costumes is that it hypersexualizes that which shouldn’t be sexualized. Should Halloween be an excuse for women to dress like this?
This is one of those questions that doesn’t have an easy answer. If I support these sexy costumes, then I could easily be accused of liking them for the wrong reasons. If I don’t support these costumes, I risk looking like a prude. There was a time when I did the latter, but all I have to say is that I wouldn’t want to see my daughter in one of these.
Then again, my daughter is not old enough to wear these adult sized costumes. It’s pretty clear that Yandy is getting attention because of the controversy, and there is just something inherently funny in seeing things that shouldn’t be sexy made sexy. I don’t feel that it is somehow corrupted, there just probably is a time and place for them. The issue is I don’t know that time or place.
