A Sign of Our Times: Goldilocks Tween Costume

October 4, 2012 16 comments

I recently came across a post on some ‘mom site’ complaining about slutty teen/tween Halloween costumes. While such complaints are heard every year, one particular costume mentioned in that post caught my attention.

In case you don’t believe me, just google “goldilocks tween costume” and you can see that many retailers are selling this item in teen sizes for about 35-50$ a piece. While some of you might see this as yet more evidence that we are going to hell, I prefer to see this as proof of the invisible hand of the marketplace.

What do you think? Comments?
