Trick or treat 2004:
'Pimp and Ho' kids
Provocative costumes for children spark outrage among some parents

If you attend a Halloween event this year, don't be surprised if you run into a child dressed as a pimp or prostitute, as a California company is selling "Child Pimp & Ho Costumes."

Los Angeles-based Brands On Sale began selling the $40- $60 outfits for children last year, but the company says there wasn't much publicity originally.

Now, the items are a hot topic with word spreading on the Internet.

"I am completely appalled that people would expose children to this disgusting sin by selling or even buying these costumes. It just makes me sick," Heather Church of Haines City, Fla., tells WorldNetDaily. "It makes me sick because it is endorsing this sin as acceptable, and gives exposes innocent children to evil."

Some comments posted among online messageboards include:


"Yikes! I thought that was a joke at first."

"This world is a messed up place. What's next? Four-year-olds dressing like Playboy bunnies?"

"This means little considering how easy it is for kids now days to become desensitized to the vice of society after watching late-night TV."

"Not to be an old square, but that's just not right. Although, come to think of it, I definitely remember trick-or-treating with the Flanigan girls one year when they were dressed up as prostitutes. I was probably 10, which would make them 11 and 12. I can't remember what I was dressed up as that year. Probably a serial killer. I had one of those creepy, clear plastic masks that bank robbers wear. Ah, Halloween. It really is the work of the devil, isn't it?"

"I much prefer the costume featuring the butcher-knife-in-the-head look."

"Kinda gives new meaning to 'trick or treat.'"
In the face of the criticism, Brands On Sale costume creator Johnathon Weeks says "we're not telling everyone to buy them," admitting they're for "unique customers."

"If they want, they can purchase a devil costume, or a ghoul or ghost costume – I don't care," he tells WorldNetDaily. "But it does not promote prostitution or sexual exploitation. It's just a costume for kids to dress up and pretend."

Weeks says real pimps these days don't look like the colorful costumes he's selling.






"If you think about a real pimp, they're not in flamboyant suits. Kids don't even know that the word pimp means – regarding soliciting women for sex. They think being 'pimp' means having big, fancy cars and homes."

The dictionary defines "pimp" as a man who acts as an agent for prostitutes and lives off their earnings, while "ho" is a slang synonym for "whore."

But Weeks says television shows like MTV's "Pimp My Ride" and celebrities like Snoop Dogg have made the terms more mainstream and less offensive.

He points out parents, not children, need to approve of the costume purchases, since they have to submit their credit card information.


Even dogs can be pimped up

"The 'Ho' costume is just there for excitement," says Weeks, claiming it looks more like a 1920s-era flapper.

Though less than 500 of the pimp and ho costumes have been sold, 90 percent of them have been shipped to California, New York and Florida.

He says his company, which sells up to 100,000 costumes annually, looks to provide everyone with a chance to dress up.

"We have Jesus costumes, Moses costumes, and coming soon we'll offer the infant pimp."

mehh, I did it last year at Halloween. However, I was a ho without a pimp. I learned an important lesson, never cross-dress with people that are drinking. I took off my costume after 3 guys hit on me. 60 bucks? I did it with 20.

That's just wrong...

Pimp & Bitch theme parties were around when I was in college 15 years ago, but kids? I think not.

No, and my kids wouldn't want to since they have morals due to the fact that their parents raised them and not the .gov(schools)

OH, it may be important to add I was 19 last year. What happened to Ninja Turtles, Mickey Mouse, and even that God-awful Pokemon?

So when the young girl dressed as a whore comes to my door and states: "Trick or Treat!" would it be wrong for me to ask "How much"?

From my observations at the local mall the last time my wife dragged me there to shop for more unnecessary debris with which to clutter up our house, many parents are already allowing their young girls of no more than 12 or 13 to dress as full blown whores. If my daughter thinks she's EVER going out of the damn house with pants cut right down to the top of her cooter, her ass crack showing with her thong panties two inches above the waistline of her jeans and her tits hanging out, she can goddamn well think again.

What the fuck is wrong with these kids' parents? Too busy with Miffy and Buffy at the country club or trying to close the financing on the new Bimmer to realize your 12 year old is advertising that she can fuck? It's tragic what's going to happen to these girls. And I blame the parents. Plain and Simple.

So then when the parents object to your comment can you then say;

"Get your pimp ass off my stoop and take your nasty ass Ho with ya!"

Are you trying to tell us you don't agree with it?



I think that is an affirmative!

NO...


But, I have seen some "kids" mostly females trick or treating in the past around here that should NOT have dressed the way they did! I am no prude, Heeldog40 will agree, and these kids were dressed INappropriately - BOOBS out, pushed up and in your face - skirts to the fur, bad bad bad !!!

It's disgusting, nothing like sexualizing a child.

Hell, I'M going to dress up as a pimp!
Link Posted: 8/26/2004 7:06:45 PM EST
I wouldnt have any problems with my kid dressing up as a "pimp" but my daughter as a whore, I think not. Why should any one let a little girl dress like that is beyond me.

Then we are angry because so many older pervs prey on little girls. Why in the hell does any one under 18 need to wear even high heels, and makeup I don't see why any one should in the first place.
