This Halloween, Your Kid Can Be a World War II Evacuee

Are you conflicted about what Halloween costume to buy your kids? Are you torn between the bumble bee, Frozen’s Elsa and Spiderman costumes? Have no fear, maybe you can dress them in something with a little more history, like a World War II child evacuee.

Sold on Amazon and UK’s eBay sites, the costumes feature a little girl with a smile on her face, her hand on her hip and a luggage tag on her coat. For about $18 you can also have your child trick-or-treat in this “WWII evacuee wartime fancy dress.”

And it’s only a matter of time before they start making the slutty version of this.

Also available for boys so no one feels left out.
