Halloween is coming, moms, and if you have daughters, I’ll bet you just can’t wait!
The spookiest day of the year is a wonderful opportunity to empower your girls by letting them dress up as the strong, smart women they all hope to be some day.
Here are just a few fabulous options:
Has your little Sweetums always dreamed of piloting her own 747? Then she’ll go nuts over this Pilot Cutie Tween Costume!
It comes with a pilot’s cap and a curve-hugging, skin baring dress that’s exactly like what she’ll be wearing if she’s a REAL pilot some day– on Hugh Hefner’s private jet!
Perhaps your Preshus Punkin dreams of one day running her own ranch. If so, you can’t go wrong with this Bratz Cowgirl Child Costume! The midriff top and barely-there skirt guarantee all the cowhands will pay attention to their boss!
Of course, those cowboys will need a place to unwind when their work is done– If ranching isn’t her thing, your daughter might want to consider running her own saloon! This Saloon Girl Teen Costume will give her a feel for the career! And if she has questions about exactly what the job entails, well… I’ll leave that to you to explain!
What little girl doesn’t dream of becoming a Geisha some day? This Geisha Tween Girls Costume will give your eleven-year-old a head start on making her dreams of serving men for a living come true!
Hey, someone’s gotta clean up– and this ‘Maid to Tease’ Teen Costume makes the job seem a lot more fun to an impressionable 13-year-old, don’t you think?
Fighting fires is one of the toughest careers a girl can choose– particularly if she’s planning to wear fishnets and a short skirt while she does it! This Sweetheart Fighter Girls Costume will give her a taste of what she’s in for!
Perhaps talking down a meth head who’s holding an entire family hostage is more your daughter’s thing- In that case, she might opt for this SWAT Officer Tween Costume! Hey, there’s no reason she can’t look SASSY while dodging bullets!
Let your six-year-old Snookums show the mateys who’s in charge with this Pretty Pirate Captain Girls Costume!
And if she still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up, how about letting her dress as her favorite doll? This Monster High Lagoona Blue Girls Costume features a micro mini skirt and super-high platform heels and is sized to fit five year olds.
And if she prefers Bratz dolls, this Bratz Cloe Halloween Costume, available at Toys R Us, will make your little one feel all grown up on Halloween night! A size small fits 4-6 year olds, so that even your preschooler can get hoochified!
Think your daughter’s too innocent for these costumes? Just put her in this demure Pixie Fairy Tween Costume and protect her purity for another year!
And if you only have boys and you’re feeling left out? Two words that will turn your frown upside down:
