The Halloween Costume Dilemma & Why I Don’t Want To Just Be “Sexy” Or “Nerdy”

Harley Quinn, Star Wars top Google’s most-searched Halloween costumes.

According to Google’s Frightgeist forecast, the demented DC Comics antiheroine is the most-searched Halloween costume in the U.S. this year — no doubt buoyed by Margot Robbie’s impending portrayal of the character in Suicide Squad.

The Hills alum, 29, took to Instagram on Thursday, Oct. 22, to reveal what she and her friends are dressing up as, and this year, it’s all about that forest life. “So excited to be a bunch of ‘Party Animals’ this Halloween!!” she wrote, captioning a photo of herself and three of her glammed-up friends (taken by Stephanie Todaro). Harley’s on-again, off-again beau the Joker and their shared nemesis Batman also cracked the top 10 (at No. 9 and No. 5, respectively), and other pop culture franchises are well-represented: Star Wars ranks second, and Minions ranks eighth. Front and center, Conrad, who just celebrated her first wedding anniversary with husband William Tell, channels her inner Bambi, rocking handmade antlers (of course!) with fur-topped sandals and an ivory maxi dress. The Frightgeist widget also breaks down search data by location, thus revealing that residents of Alpena, Mich., are into Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones while residents of Juneau, Alaska, prefer Chucky from Child’s Play.

Unless she wants to go as a ghost completely enveloped in a formless sheet, most American Halloween costumes would have her dressed up as a prostitute. First, though I do not consider myself a feminist, I do have to agree that the lack of super hero costumes and action figures for girls is ridiculous. Culture is over sexualized enough without us putting our elementary and middle school daughters in outfits that make them look like a Hollywood version of a cheap hooker in Times Square.

Cancel the television subscription, turn off culture, and make sure your kids, particularly your daughters, understand that having their butts hanging out of the backsides of their clothes is not acceptable.
