The Little Vampire Costume Too Hot for the Bus

Just another mom on Halloween

Halloween can be a scary time for some kids.  The sights and sounds of the holiday are intentionally spooky and for some, it’s just too much.  But it isn’t always frightening ghosts and wicked witches that freak out the kids.  In the case of a girl in Utah, it was a larger-than-life image of a little vampire that proved to be too much.

According to the girl’s father, the little vampire in question was a costume ad spotted on the back of a Utah Transit Authority bus.  Featuring a woman in a cleavage-baring dress wearing a provocative expression on her face, the ad was placed by the Blue Boutique, a local lingerie store. Dad says the image shocked his daughter and resulted in a rather awkward conversation in which he had to explain why this particular vampire looked so different from the other vampires she had seen.

The ads, which appear on 15 other buses in the Salt Lake area drew complaints from others as well.  And despite the fact that they comply with the UTA’s advertising policy, the decision was made to cover her up.  A black vinyl patch was strategically placed over the woman’s chest and, presumably, made everyone happy.

The article doesn’t say how old the little girl was, but I sympathize with the dad having to explain something even I don’t understand.  Why do so many otherwise modest women use Halloween as an excuse to dress like prostitutes?  And while we are on the subject, why do so many guys like to dress like women on Halloween?
