questionable costumes for kids

this is taken from: http://www.thestranger.com/current/special.html



Nancy Reagan
It's never too early to get your daughter into her first little black dress! This elegant approximation of former First Lady Nancy Reagan's moving moment alone with her husband's casket is as touching as it is scary. With just a flag, a casket, a simple black dress, and Grandma's old wig, any little girl can be America's Widow®!

Total cost: Between $25 and $25,000 (depending on the cost of the casket).
Total time: Under an hour.



The Littlest Prisoner at Abu Ghraib
Your child will be the hit of the neighborhood costume parade in this recreation of the Abu Ghraib prisoner-abuse scandal's most indelible image. As an added bonus this easy-to-make costume will remind everyone on your child's trick-or-treat route of our national shame! Simply roll a cone from a sheet of 24"x38" black cardstock, making sure to cut out a hole for the face. Drape with two yards of black felt, and add leftover wires from your last lamp-rewiring project. VoilĄ! So easy, so quick, and so terrifying!

Total cost: Under $20.
Total time: Under two hours.


Lyndie England
Transform Daddy's little girl into America's NEW favorite bad girl, Private First Class Lyndie England. For the costume, simply add an invisible-dog leash from a novelty shop to a pair of camouflage pants and a khaki-colored shirt from your local Army/Navy surplus store. (Candy cigarette optional.)

Total cost: Under $30.
Total time: Under an hour.

a few years ago some place in NJ was selling costumes that looked just like prison uniforms. They had to stop because the police said that people may be shot by accident for fleeing from prison.

The prisoner looks more like a Klan member or a giant suppository

Jenna Bush's Liver

Dive inside President Bush's rowdiest daughter with this ingenious re-creation of Jenna Bush's liver. Use old newspapers to stuff a Hefty bag to create the liver, then affix two or three paper-stuffed white bin liners for "diseased" spots. Rifle through the help's recycling bin for an empty Bud can and bottoms up!

Those are hilarious. I thought the thread would just be about how some of the "regular" children's costumes are unsuitable. Some of the cotumes I saw for little girls were just scandalous; they should have more to an outift than that.

I thought I'd see that costume with the priest and the kid hanging on to his crotch with his mouth.

In order to vote for Kerry, you have to touch her in her naughty place.

Funny costumes, though.
