(KPLR) – Have Halloween costumes gone too far?   Here's JB with the way it ought to be.

This the season for ghosts, goblins and a wide range of costumes.  Some of the latest get-ups coming under fire come from one of the most innocent places of all, Sesame Street.

It seems one of the hot costumes right now is a sexy big bird outfit.  Does this go too far?

Well here's the deal.

Halloween is no longer just about kids.  In fact it's a billion dollar industry for adults looking to blow off steam on one night of the year.

So there's nothing wrong with adult costumes for adults.  What bothers me is when some of those adult type costumes work their way into the kid’s shelves.

So if adults want to go crazy on Halloween that's great.  Just keep the crazy costumes off the kids.

I'm JB and that's The Way It Oughta Be.
