Last night was was contemplating a Halloween costume for a party I was supposed to attend. My wife suggested and went as a “homeless person” complete with a cardboard sign reading “will work for candy”.
At first blush it seemed wrong to make light of homelessness by using it as a costume. Don’t misunderstand me here, I’ve never had this impression that it might be inappropriate before — not about any costume as a matter of fact. I’m not asserting some moral superiority here but for some reason it struck me last night . I ended up going as a mailman only because the plaid shirt didn’t fit, otherwise I would have worn the “homeless” costume.
I’m curious what you think. Are there costumes that are inappropriate to wear for Halloween? Not so much because they are demonic or evilish and offend those with religious sensibilities. I mean like a couple wearing a Nazi uniform with Ann Frank in handcuffs or something like that.
Is anything off limits when it comes to costume choices for Halloween?
