When my doorbell starts ringing at dusk this Halloween, I’m going to keep a tally of naughty leopards.
Last month, the website Consumerist reported the presence of a “Naughty Leopard” costume in toddler sizes on Walmart shelves. And, no, not naughty in the sense that this leopard that might, at any moment, start writing on your wall with crayons. Naughty in a “dirty French maid” way, with a short skirt, translucent mesh sleeves, and stylish leopard-print trim. Also, the whole thing was purple and black, a leopard color scheme that does not occur in nature.
