Up to what age do you let your daughter wear a costume with pants?

My parents let us wear pants on Purim even past Bas Mitzva age. I think I wouldn't let my daughters wear pants past the age of 3. Tznius rules apply on Purim as well. (Then again, they only want to dress up as Queen Esthers and kallahs anyway, so I don't have a problem).

I think it's accepted in Lub. until age three.

I actually saw a 14 year old girl from a fancy Lub. family in a rented "pants" outfit but I don't think it's the norm.

this question is sort of the opposite. what about men wearing skirts? I have seen it before. and I know that the man that was wearing a skirt asked a rav and said that it was ok for a man to wear a skirt on purim.
so in that regard, why couldnt a girl wear parnts on purim as well?

I know a story where a girl dressed in pants went with her brother to visit his rebbe. She got a kiss from the rebbe too Exclamation
It is easier to tell that the person in a skirt is a guy than the person is pants is a girl.
(Who do those drag queens think they are kidding?)
Guess girls are better at deception..

Oh yeah? I know a married woman who got dressed up as a chassidishe bochur, and when a bunch of bochurim came into her house to dance and sing, she took their hands got into a circle with them and danced around. Confused

thats not true. I mean, if you look at girl's feature's and guys feature's, well, at least to me, they are VERY different. even when my sister dressed up as a rav, nobody thought that she was a guy. and a guy can always put on a mask with the skirt, so then you would have no idea that it was a guy. I know someone who did that and nobody was the wiser Very Happy

Because while (I guess theoretically Confused ) one could dismiss the issur of wearing clothes of the opposite gender, there is still a tznius problem with girls wearing pants, which I would be surprised to find a heter for.

Actually, in this day and age, I probably wouldn't be so surprised.

I dressed up as a chassidishe boy once while in High School. I borrowed a hard hat and a beketche too (thus I wasn't walking around in pants alone)
I went delivering Meshloach Monas with my oldest brother, and a few of his friends asked me how Israel was thinking I was my brother who was at the time about the same hight that I was.

Yes, she's very petite, thin and put on the thick black plastic framed glasses, she also had payos, not sure how she did that! Nobody gave her a second look! Believe me I was there, I saw!

say whaaa? real ones? to smoke? health concerns aside (v'nishmartem m'od l'nafshoseichem), in the US of A it is illegal to give or sell tobacco, cigarettes or tobacco products to a person under 18 years of age. dinoh d'malchusoh dinoh.
