Just When I Thought I’d Seen it All

Yep. The thing I’ve never seen before is a blonde gal in a short, clingy, black dress. Blasphemous, right? Kidding! Who do you think I am, a slut-shamer? ;-)

But really. Let me provide some context, because this image is showcasing something horrible, it just hasn’t been brought into focus yet. Allow me:

  • _________________________________________________________________________________
  • Jane Doe DOA Bodybag Adult Costume
  • Item#¬†01012756
  • He will will be dead on arrival when you show up in this drop dead sexy Jane Doe DOA bodybag adult women’s costume. The dress hugs your every curve and the zipper..well, how low does it go? You decide! You can zip it all the way up and close the hood, or zip it down when he goes down.
  • Stretch satin dress with hood and a two way zipper front which can zip all the way up the hood, toe tag Jane Doe neckband, and matching fingerless gloves
  • _________________________________________________________________________________

This is absolutely horrifying (and not in the fun, Halloween-type of way). Here’s one of the websites¬†selling this “costume” if you needed more proof. I don’t really have much else to say. The costume speaks to where we are as a society, as a culture, how we so cavalierly sexually objectify the female body in the most sickening manner. The commercialized response to commonized violence against women… Could the message behind this image be any clearer?

If you come across any other costumes that deserve a spotlight, be sure to send them my way. And thank you to Next Years Girl, for the enlarged photo.
