Sexy Sesame Street Costumes Debut

By Wyatt Earp | October 4, 2010

Yeah, you read that correctly. “Sexy” Sesame Street costumes. I guess Katy Perry’s cleavage-filled appearance on the children’s show – which was never aired – got some enterprising young marketing executives thinking.

I don’t know exactly what they were thinking, but they were thinking. Personally, I think the costumes are creepy, and if some chick thinks this is going to turn a man on, she needs to rethink what kind of man she wants to land. Unless, of course, she wants to land a child molester.

And that’s coming from me – a true former poonhound.

With each passing year, it seems the notion of Halloween being a children’s holiday gets farther and farther from the reality of the matter. To that end, costume manufacturer Disguise, a unit of Jakks Pacific, has designed a number of costumes for adults that take familiar children’s characters and make them a little…um…sassier.

Sesame Street’s Big Bird, Elmo, and Cookie Monster, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—even popular Hasbro board games such as Scrabble, Candyland and Monopoly—have been interpreted by Disguise in a way that not only captures the essence of those iconic brands, but also fulfills a woman’s desire to wear a very attractive costume.

The Ninja Turtle? Hot. The Cookie Monster? Not.

    Please pardon me while I vomit.

    Why the HECK would someone want to sluttify Sesame Street? Are they working their way towards sluttifying children’s clothing even more?

    Is sluttifying even a word?

    When I’m out trick or treating in my “Tickle My Tits Elmo” costume, I’ll be sure to skip your house.

    “Tickle My Tits Elmo?”

    This is a very beautiful rock I live under. The scenery is great. It’s quiet.

    Did you know a friend of mine called the first “Tickle Me Elmo” doll “Baby’s first vibrator.” When I picked that thing up and tickled it, I understood why she said that. It’s creepy. Then again, so is Elmo. Creepy and annoying.

    Kim- This is how we end up with mini skirts and tube tops for little girls in department stores. I can’t tell you how many 5 year olds in bikinis I saw at the neighborhood pool this summer. The 5 year olds aren’t buying them, their parents are. It’s ludicrous.

    What? No……that’s just……another in a long line of ‘sexy epic fail’ costumes like ‘sexy sanitation worker’ or ‘sexy SWAT officer’….

    I knew this girl a few years back who wanted to go out as the Penguin from the Batman comics…..didn’t work out too well since she couldn’t find a monocole at short notice, but she did make a very alluring ‘magicians assistant’ which is what most everybody thought she was at first glance…..

    So what will Prolateriat Broadcasting System do next? An Adult Mr. Rogers Neighborhood?

    You could have “X Rated the Owl” in leather and spikes.

    Mr. McFeely in a thong.

    The new Mr. Rogers in a silk bathrobe, looking like Hugh Hefner.

    I pray that Fred Rogers took all the rights with him when he died.

    Because you don’t touch Mr. Rogers.

    And I really miss the guy.

    This is precisely why I just want to cut two eye-holes in a white bed sheet and throw it over my seven year old daughter’s head.

    I mean, those Peanuts kids had the right idea.

    Kim – It’s not . . . yet. Grab the patent on it right quick!

    Mrs. Crankipants – Yeah, no reason to skeeve out the kids.

    Kim – Kids love Elmo, but yeah he’s a little creepy. Especially since the voice is provided by a 6′ tall black man.

    Mrs. Crankipants – My daughter can wear a bikini. When she’s 50.

    Bob – It’s completely and utterly insane.

    RT – There are plenty of sexy costumes you can get. Why use Sesame Street?

    Fenway – Note to partiers: It helps to look like the character you’re going as. If you’re a size 2, The Penguin is not the best choice.

    Ferrell – Mr. Greenjeans becomes Mr. No-jeans.

    GroovyVic – “I got a rock.”

    Erik is going with Jango Fett this year, and Kyle picked his first scary costume. A maniacal hockey goalie, complete with bloody hockey mack and hockey stick/axe. I’d rather him go with Star Wars again, but the mask for the Cad Bane costume was too hard to see out of, so I let him pick this.

    Katy Perry cleaveage filled costume?

    This is cleaveage filled.

    If college girls want to dress like skanks on Halloween just go as Victoria’s Secret Angels or Playboy bunnies. No reason to defile a children’s character.

    Rick – Bodacious!

    Ingineer66 – Exactly. There are plenty of busty cop uniforms for everyone!

    The Oscar costume doubles as a Paris Hilton costume.

    Shoot, I wanted to be Little Red Riding Hood originally and Mr. Dragon was going to be the Big Bad Wolf for our costume party and I finally gave up because I couldn’t find a costume that wasn’t skanky or downright criminal. If I had worn any of those things on the street, I’d have been picked up for prostitution.

    Dr. Evil – Because they are both trash?

    DL474 – If you have pics of you in the skanky/criminal one, feel free to forward them to me. :)

    LOL…noooo, I went with a gothic, vampirish ball gown, a black and red velvet/silk number.
