Goth Milk / Got Milk Halloween Costume

Inappropriate Halloween Costume #45

From the 2006 Archives:

Goth Milk? Tee hee. What I like about this Goth Milk Halloween Costume (play on words of Got Milk) is that it displays its easy-to-read message right on its torso. Three cheers also for the “realistic piercings” and the shiny but altogether impractical stomping boots. I really can’t resist tittering at Gothic couture… and bad, bad seeds. As for Halloween acceptability, let us all say in unison, “Goths aren’t scary!” Therefore poking fun at a non-spooky institution renders the satire useless, no matter how clever it is. A pale-faced, heavy-lidded beanpole might implore the reason for his-her-its non-threatening nature. To which I respond, it’s the makeup, fake fangs and overt piercings. I just can’t take the combination of theatrics, reverse-beautification and artificial transmogrification seriously. (But really, I adore Trent Reznor.)

The Goth Milk Halloween Costume is available from All Costumes.
