Ooh, Target, You Came THIS Close to Totally Nailing Your Marvel & 'Star Wars' Halloween Costumes

Leading up to Halloween, Target has amped up their costume game with some awesome Disney lines. They’ve got the usual princess stuff, of course, but what I’m talking about are their stellar Star Wars and Marvel costumes. Now, they’ve got a weirdly sexified Darth Vader, sure—

As well as these ADORABLE CUDDLY BABY DROIDS.

But the coolest lines are their costumes for kids. They really nailed the inclusivity for girls that we’ve been asking for. There are a bunch of totally badass options for girls, like Rey, a non-bikini’d Leia, and Captain Phasma. (Click to embiggen.)

They even include girls in the group pictures! And we know how rare that is.

Here’s where it falls apart though. Tell me if you see anything off about this:

How about the adult’s version?

Oh, Target. You came so close. But when you have a costume for a black character who rules an African nation, whose entire character is rooted in his heritage, maybe— here’s a crazy thought— USE A BLACK MODEL FOR THAT COSTUME.

Obviously children of any race can dress as whatever they want for Halloween, but why on earth would Target choose to deny their young black customers the chance to see this particular character represented with a black model?

As is, the only black model I can see in any of these is for Falcon. And come on. Nobody wants to be Falcon.
