Have Halloween costumes for kids gone too far?

My wife and I took my kids costume shopping over the weekend and the costumes for kids have gotten pretty intense. After not finding the right Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume at the store we decided we would look online for just the right costume for my 5 year old.

That is when I stumbled on the demented doctor costume on the wal mart website.It features a blood-spattered lab coat, and a blood-red mask with a crazed expression. Oh, and in the photo, they also show the kid holding a huge needle.

It's hard to imagine any kid wearing it to school, or out trick or treating and not getting some crazy looks.


But so far the costume is still on sale at Walmart and online, for $20.
