The Pop-Culture Inspired Costumes You Should Definitely Skip This Halloween

#11: Anne Frank?!?

Slide 11 of 13: <p> recently featured “Anne Frank Costume for Girls,” an outfit that included a beret, brown satchel bag and a blue dress pinned with a destination tag. “We can always learn from the struggles of history!” the website’s copy began, with an eerily gleeful exclamation point. “Now, your child can play the role of a World War II hero with this girls World War II costume.” The Twitterverse noticed the costume and pointed out that a child who hid for years in an attic to avoid systemic genocide before eventually perishing along with most of her family in a death camp might not be the best choice for Halloween look. The costume has since been removed from the website, though the company still offers a “Chinese Gentleman” yellow-face costume, a “Snake Charmer” outfit where you get the double whammy of pretending to be a different race and having a giant fake snake that goes in a NSFW spot and at Mexican stereotype costume, which is already out of stock.</p>
