People love to get creative when it comes to Halloween costumes, and the current year’s newsmakers always help inspire costume ideas. But what about when those newsmakers are controversial? For example, there’s reportedly been a great demand for Casey Anthony costumes, and you can find retailers selling outfit accessories online, though most big-box retailers are steering clear of the polarizing figure.
Charlie Sheen has authorized his likeness to be sold at a major costume store chain. But is it appropriate to dress up as the mentally unstable actor?
And what about those that fall into the “is it too soon” category, such as Steve Jobs? It’s reported that Steve Jobs zombie costumes are going to be a big hit this Halloween.
Expect to see a bunch of people dressed up as Occupy Wall Street protesters, mocking the grassroots movement.
And that’s just the costume ideas for adults. Our Momania blogger has a good discussion posted about whether it’s acceptable to allow your child or teen to dress up as a murderer or other violent character from a movie. (The image above is a Michael Myers costume for kids.)
