The tale of “Boo” and his Halloween costume is making the viral rounds of the internet. Long story short: boy wants to dress up as Daphne from Scooby Doo. His mom helps him with his costume. They go to school; other moms chastise her for allowing her son to cross-dress. Mom blogs about the experience. My take: it’s just a costume; don’t have a cow! Experimentation with costumes helps children to explore their identities and frame their world. As a costume designer, this costume fracas is a non-issue, but it’s sad that not everyone understands costume as a form of expression. What do you think?
