What Kind of an Idiot Thinks This is Okay?

Posted by on October 15, 2009

Ahhh…it’s that time of year again. Time for witches and ghosts and goblins and of course, the trashy, slutty costumes for little girls that make my blood boil. But…I’ve railed about those plenty in the past. Everyone who gets mail probably already knows of a certain national party store chain that carries an assortment of inappropriate costumes for elementary aged girls which, given how I feel about corporate America sexualizing children, kinda makes me want to hurl.

Before I go any further, though, let me ask if you, as a parent, make a habit of letting your 5-7 year olds (or even 8-10 year olds) watch movies like Nightmare on Elm Street or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre or Friday the 13th or Saw or Hostel? I’m sincerely hoping the answer is no and I’m just going to assume that the vast majority of you are responsible parents who would never do something so reprehensible  <— A must read!

So, that said, you probably wouldn’t be able to explain to me WHY THE EVER LOVING HELL why the aforementioned national party store chain is selling Freddy Krueger (of Nightmare on Elm Street) and Jason (Friday the 13th) costumes for FIVE to SEVEN year old kids and Leatherface (of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) masks for children?

Can you tell me? Because I sure as hell can’t figure it out. In any case? It’s messed up.

5-7 years old???

5-7 years old??? Even 8-10 yrs old is effed up.

Fits Most Kids???

Fits Most CHILDREN???

Nice.

Nice

And riddle me this…even if you haven’t let your kids see these movies but you DO buy them the costume, out of some kind of twisted nostalgia, I assume, WHAT do you tell them their costume is, exactly? Do you say “Oh, Leatherface is this guy in a movie that dismembers and kills tons of people with a chainsaw. Oh, and his mask? It’s made from the skin of his victims!”?

I mean seriously, I’d LOVE to know.

And yes, it’s very likely that I AM judging you for that. I admit it.

But I’m judging the store that sells this crap for little kids even more more harshly—what the hell are they thinking?

    Ok, I’m your huckleberry. I have an 18 yr old and 13 yr old sons. Five years ago, my 18 yo wanted to see a scary movie. We went to see SAW at the theatre. We covered our eyes, screamed, and laughed more than once. No drama, no nightmares, and I never once caught him sharpening knife blades to dissect his classmates.
    The following year, he asked to see SAW2. Again, with more laughter just by being together and enjoying ourselves, we had a great time.

    At 11, my younger son wanted to join us. We rented all the previous SAW movies, and watched one each nite and on opening night we saw the new SAW release in the theatres….A family tradition has ensued.

    Tonight? We start watching SAW1 again at home, and we will follow up with SAW2-5 throughout the two weeks. We have since been joined on our Fright Nights by assorted family and friends raning in ages 10- 60. We have eight other people joining us in our living room with popcorn and chips this year’s Fright Fest.

    My kids know the effects are just that. They know nobdoy was actually killed during the filming, in the same way they were taught that no dog really died when Old Yellar bit the bullet when they were kids.
    Halloween and spooky things are just a seasonal treat. It does no more harm than does listening to music lyrics (remember playing Sgt. Peppers LP backwards? Paul still isn’t dead, ya know.

    I am a responsible parent with wonderful, well adjusted children. I am a huge fan of family time, be it monopoly games that last for days (!!!!!) or scary movies they choose. Actaully, I find their participation is is greatly enhanced when they get to make some of the choices.
    And no, I don’t expect either of them to want to grow up to be Jeffrey Dahmer. Or worse. Lizzie Borden took an axe to her mother. Probably because her mom didn’t explain to her that when you chop people up in the movies, it’s all smoke and mirrors. When you do it at home? There’s noone left to do your laundry.

    • IzzyMom says:

      That’s great, huckleberry. Really. I have no problem with older kids watching horror movies. I did. However, you MAY need to re-read the post because I’m talking about costumes from movies that are most DEFINITELY NOT for, as they suggest, 5 to 7 year olds—unless of course, you took them to see those movies when they were ages five to seven, in which case, I’d definitely question your parental abilities.

      • mysuestories says:

        Acyually? You DID question my parenting abilities in the taking a 10 yr oold to see SAW…… Heck, The Wizard of Oz had the crazy flying monkeys….Willie Wonka’s Magical Mystery tour with disappearing children…..Remember the old Road Runner cartoons? Again, wacthing WITH a child, so they understand it is ONLY IMAGINATION and all bells and whistles is the key. My son was 7 when he wanted to be the ghost from SCREAM. He hadn’t seen the movie yet, but it was all the rage at his school that year. I bought him the costume (with the blood pump down the face attachment)—and he was happy to be one of 2000 SCREAM ghosts that year.

        • IzzyMom says:

          Ah yeah…guess I did. In any case, we’ll have to agree to disagree because there’s no explanation that will convince me that Saw or any other movie I’ve mentioned is okay for any kid under 14 years old. As for the costumes, which were the intended focal point of this post, why dress your small child as a violent, gruesome movie character they neither know nor are old enough to even remotely comprehend? (That was rhetorical…no reply necessary) But just for shits and giggles…did you read the post I linked to from thelastpsychiatrist.com? If that doesn’t disturb you then we are definitely never going to see eye to eye.

          • IsiMom says:

            I am definitely in the IzzyMom camp on this one. The type of horror that are represented in SAW movies and Friday 13, and Hallowe’en movies are far and away more “realistic,” sadistic, bloody, and dismemberment-oriented than anything we saw as kids growing up. I would NOT put Road Runner cartoons and SAW in the same category of violence. The emphasis on young girls getting killed is particularly disturbing for SO many reasons. Come on, if you let your young children 10 and under watch things like this, you’re helping build their tolerance for violence and torture, which is the opposite of healthy child-rearing! When an older child watches something like this, it’s not much better, but at least they understand abstractions like “acting” and “special effects” better than their younger brothers and sisters, and are less likely to have nightmares. Honestly, I would rather my kids watch some smooching and some bare boobies in a foreign movie than the violence and sadism in your average mainstream U.S. thriller or action movie,

    • IzzyMom says:

      I’m talking about very small children and costumes from movies NO 5-7 year old should ever see. Would you really let your 5-7 year old kids watch The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Or Friday the 13th? Really?

  • Aprylsantics says:

    I went to a big horror convention recently (for my job) and there were some vendors there with pretty graphic, violent, and sexually explicit images for sale. First, I don’t know why in the hell anyone would buy the stuff—and then hang it over a couch. Second, there were people there with very small children. Those are the people who will buy these costumes. I totally met them.

    • IzzyMom says:

      Did you follow the link in the post? Sounds like the same AWESOME parents. But seriously, I read that a couple years ago and found it pretty disturbing, as any normal person would.

  • Mom101 says:

    My preschool doesn’t allow any costumes because “what’s fun to one child is absolutely terrifying to another.” At first I eye rolled. But then I thought, yeah, they have a point. She’s afraid of the inflatable shrek at our neighbor’s house.

    I have read that it’s good to let kids be vampires and monsters and that getting those desires addressed in an institutionalized way can be healthy. But I think there’s a line, and I’d imagine a kindergartener in Freddie Kruger pretty much crosses it.

    • IzzyMom says:

      My kids’ schools and preschools have always had a ‘no weapons, blood or gore’ rule, which, of course, I totally support. But I made the mistake of bringing my kids, when they were smaller, to a costume shop. I’d totally forgotten how much scary, gory stuff they have on display. Let’s just say it was a HUGE mistake and I paid for it for weeks with N, even though we were only in there for, literally, about ten seconds.

  • I don’t watch those kinds of movies, just because I simply don’t like them. I don’t let my kids watch them, and find it apalling that someone would dress their YOUNG CHILD in a costume resembling a character from a horror movie. Crazy.

    My daughter, 2yo, wanted to be a puppy for Halloween. I traipsed through 5 different stores yesterday and finally gave up. I was very disheartened to see that even WALMART was selling a “parasitic twin” outfit for KIDS. Disgusting.

    The lack of imaginative outfits alone make me want to learn how to sew. Everything was licensed character or a goddamned princess.

  • Well written! Don’t you just want to walk up to their PR department or their creative consultants and ask, “What are you thinking?”

    Last year, being from Kansas originally, I dressed my daughter up like Dorothy. She’d watched the non-scary parts from The Wizard of Oz (no flying monkeys scenes for her!), and she loved the ruby slippers I’d purchased for her from the Target clearance rack.

    My sister heard about the costume and said, “I’m sending you something for you.”

    In the mail, I received a “sexy Dorothy” costume. My daughter was so excited that we dressed alike. But at least the sexy costume was for the adult!!!!

  • patois says:

    11 and wanting to watch such a movie or knowing about such a movie is one thing. (At 11, my son got to watch “Saving Private Ryan.”) But at 5? 7? 9?

    I saw Terminator 2 at a midnight show its opening weekend. I will never forget the terrified 3-year-old boy who watched the whole damn thing with his father. I often wonder whatever happened to him.

    I went to see Zombieland over the weekend (not my choice AT ALL, but it turned out to be, well, great) and there was a family sitting in front of us with an infant and 3 other kids whose ages I guessed as 4, 7 and 9. I assumed the 4yo at least would be pretty terrified, but the reality turned out to be even worse. I’m guessing that all of those kids have seen stuff like that on a regular basis, because there wasn’t even a whimper. I’m so sad for those kids.

  • Kim says:

    I had the same reaction a few years ago when one of my 3rd grade students said her favorite tv show was CSI. Um, seriously? First off, what time is this child going to bed? and second, that show isn’t only excruciatingly graphic, it’s full of really scary and twisted ways people hurt and/or get off with each other. And I knew her parents!
    But one of the saddest things I ever saw was a 3-4 yo being dragged through Universal Studios haunted house, with her parents screaming at her, it isn’t real! Only it was real costumed people, in scary costumes, trying to scare her, and she was developmentally unable to know that it was all pretend… idiots is the right word.

    • IsiMom says:

      I am so with you …. makes you wonder why there aren’t parenting licenses the way we have driver’s and pilot’s licenses!!

  • The Other Elle says:

    I was firm in my disapproval of the Scream costume for my six-year-old son a few years back. He wanted it desperately — a bunch of the other boys in his class were talking about getting it — and I kept saying, “No, it’s not appropriate.”

    Imagine my surprise when his jaw dropped and he said, innocently, “Don’t you like expressionist art, Mom? We learned about it in school. Gaby is coming to the class party as that girl Pinky in the white dress with the pink sash, and Vincent is coming as Blue Boy but he says he is going to wear blue jeans and a blue shirt, not that stupid blue suit…”

    Um, seems I never got the note about dressing up as famous paintings and didn’t know they were going to be characters from Munch, Lawrence, and Gainsborough, etc. (They had the option of drawing themselves in a costume and then creating one to wear that matched their drawings, too. Clever teacher, I thought!)

    On the other hand, I bet I was one of the few mothers in town who bought the Scream costume because my son liked Edvard Munch! (He is 10 now and still hasn’t seen any of those movies.)

  • FireMom says:

    I *desperately* wanted to see all kinds of scary movies when I was ten-ish. My evil mother wouldn’t let me. So I watched one at a friend’s sleepover.

    Nightmares. For weeks.

    Evil mother was right. I told her years later.

    I am now the evil mother who will not allow my children to watch certain things now and as they get older. Do I think it ruined my life? Watching that one movie? No. Could I have done without it? Yes.

    I’m having enough issue with Batman/etc. The most recent Batman movie was not child friendly. At all. Yet it was marketed with all kinds of toys for children, shirts and even in children’s meals at fast food restaurants. (I don’t recall which one as we don’t do fast food. Once again, I’m now the evil mother.) I broke and bought a Batman-logo shirt because I think it’s funny when my not-quite-two year old and not-quite four year old argue over who and who is not Batman (and they were on clearance at Walmart). They haven’t seen the movie. They won’t for quite some time.

    I’m rambling. I just came to say, “I agree.”

  • Stephanie says:

    I have to agree. Costumes like that are nuts for young kids. I can’t imagine letting my 4 year old son wear something like that.

    On the other hand, he is going as Bumblebee from Transformers, and he’s never seen that movie or the cartoons. I don’t think he even knows about the transforming part. He just loves a toy one he has that doesn’t transform and thinks he’s dressing up as that.

    Not the same thing at all, since at least Transformers were originally aimed at kids when they were just cartoons.

      I’m with you there… Transformers are SO benign compared to that other stuff. I mean Hostel is torture-porn, plain and simple. The others aren’t much better. You can’t even begin to compare them to a movie about robots. My son has never seen the movie OR the cartoons but he has Transformers and plays with them because they’re TOYS…not chainsaw murderers. And Bumblebee is actually kind of sweet..for a robot :)

    • IzzyMom says:

      I don’t see how you could let kids watch that sort of thing and NOT see some kind of damage to their burgeoning little minds. Children are simply not capable of parsing and putting into context such brutal and sadistic imagery. They are not that sophisticated. The result? Children who have no sense of what kind of behavior is normal. How could they after they’ve watched a dozen people murdered in every conceivable way?

  • verybadcat says:

    I read everything you linked. My parents allowed me to watch these movies at seven or so. Which meant that my sister, who is six years younger than me, watched them with me when she was a toddler. Also to note- my father will NOT be in the room when these movies are on, because *he* can’t handle them. Nightmares and the whole nine yards.

    We never killed anyone, or even had issues with violence outside the normal range of two girls growing up in a too small house together.

    No, we’re not sociopaths, but hmm, let’s see, we both suffer from moderate to debilitating anxiety disorders, and we both have a serious tendency towards mistrust and a view that the world is a cruel and dangerous place. Of course, some of that has to do with our genetics and the other factors of our childhood…

    Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street are probably not the reasons I’m on the Ativan, but I can almost guarantee you they *are* the reasons I sleep with a loaded .357 in my nightstand drawer.

    *disclaimer: yes, i am capable of handling a weapon. yes, it is registered. yes, i picked it out myself because i wield it comfortably and confidently, yes, i get a little target practice in there to keep it that way, yes, it has a safety, and no, i do not live with any childrens. i live alone.

    • Izzy Mom says:

      Some people have gotten the idea, from this post, that my concern is that children who watch such movies or dress up as the characters will grow up to be axe murderers and serial killers.

      To the contrary, that is the last thing on my mind. My primary concern is for the emotional and psychological implications of showing such brutal and sadistic imagery to young children who are absolutely NOT equipped to deal with what they are seeing.

      The subconscious mind is like a tape recorder. It doesn’t judge. it simply records EVERYTHING we see and hear and feel and there it lives, in the recesses of our subconscious mind, for the rest of our lives.

      Children are so perfect and innocent. To pollute that perfection with such vile garbage is akin to child abuse, in my opinion and many experts have drawn similar conclusions.

      As for your gun, I say good for you. I’m not anti-gun. I’m anti-criminals-with-guns. Since we can’t seem to keep guns away from criminals, I fully support one’s right to defend themselves against any and all threats.

      • verybadcat says:

        I can make that connection, though, from exposure to violent media to sociopathic tendencies. We learn from a very young age that the world is either basically safe or unsafe, and that colors our development. There isn’t a direct correlation, but I think it’s part of the risk of exposing kids to violence. As you say, the subconscious collects it all, and it rattles around in there forever. :)

    Considering that my five-year-old finds the gingerbread man torture scene in Shrek seriously disturbing, (and rightly so) I have no plans to show him any adult horror movies until he is at least 13.

    (And I did watch super-violent, R-rated action and horror movies when I was his age, at my father’s house. And I did not turn out particularly warped. But the movies gave me nightmares. Why would I want to give my kid nightmares?)

    I’ve made my kid’s costumes more years than not to avoid the horror movie / licensed character trap. My kid wants to be a plain old ghost this year (his choice, not mine). I’m a little relieved. (The year he wanted to be a pilot I had to make him tiny aviator goggles. THAT was a challenge!)

    Tangentially, I’m so sick of the little girls’ slutty costumes trend that I refuse to buy even remotely slutty costumes for myself, despite the fact that I am quite old enough to wear them! But because it’s nearly impossible to buy non-slutty costumes, I generally just make my own.

      Actually, YES.

      I ask, they tell me and that’s what they wear. I don’t think anyone said their kids aren’t free to choose.

But I’m guessing you’re probably one of those douches that would take a 5 year old to see Hostel…

      In any case, leaving inflammatory comments with no REAL contact information is the mark of a real coward. At least have the courage to own your words. Are you REALLY that scared of us?

    I’m a 49 year old mom and it kind of disgusts me that not only is the gore getting more intense, but the female costumes, for BOTH children and adults, is having so much more emphasis on sexiness. What happened to the carefree fun of Halloween? The TV shows are filled with murder related plots, and it seems like there’s usually a scene that takes place in a strip club, or has filthy language or nudity in so many of the prime time shows. It’s getting harder and harder to preserve children’s innocence for long.

  • Diana says:

    Honestly, there was a time when I would have agreed with you and I still can’t PERSONALLY imagine taking a young child to see a scary movie, or letting them watch one at home, BUT… I know kids who have seen this stuff and are perfectly reasonable, responsible, well-adjusted kids so… who am I to judge? Does it feel right for MY kids? No. But obviously it’s worked for others so… more power to them, I guess. Maybe I’m just getting old and having a hard time giving a fuck these days, I don’t know.

    As an aside I let my seven year old go on a haunted hay ride this year. It was an event with her older sibling’s football team — bonfire, haunted hay ride, etc for the end of season — and she learned who a lot of these people are there. (Both my husband and I were also along.) There was a Jason, two Leatherfaces with chainsaws, a headless horseman, the jeepers creepers guy, some evil clowns, a mad scientist, witches, and so on and so forth. One of the older kids would invariably name the character and the movie it was from (the hay ride was more comical than scary and she shook hands, fist bumped, and felt masks throughout). So while she’s more of a princess type, she’d know who many of these are now… even though she’s never seen the movies.

  • Diana says:

    Oh and you know what, while I say I can’t imagine allowing my kids to watch scary movies at home, I guess I should also admit however, that my 10 year old (at the time) also went to a haunted house with my husband and a friend last year. One of the best in the area that is supposedly VERY scary. I was apprehensive, but she loved it and never had any nightmares or other issues. *shrug*
