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.
