Lolita as a Halloween Costume?

Ok, maybe I'm overreacting, but among all the crappy goth clothes and trashy lingerie labeled as 'lolita' I've never seen anything quite this bad.

Perhaps I'm just being overly dramatic. Maybe there are tons of 'lolita' costumes just as bad out there. But this is the first one I've seen, and quite frankly, when I saw it my blood boiled.

And just as bad, but not quite as relevant, is this:

Is this a new thing, or have I just not noticed it before? And does it aggravate you as much as it does me, or do I just need to chill the heck out?

Edit: OK. Now that I had some time to calm down, I think I did kinda overreact. ^^;; I mean, sure they're horrendous, but they are just costumes. Note to self: Do not post while angry.
