I was just at Wal-Mart and I noticed this.  It’s not just the default pink for girls thing, or the default skirt for girls, or how this costume looks nothing like Spider-Girl’s costume, but that this is an official Marvel product and they have the comic heroine on the front so you can see just how wrong it is.
Like, if your child likes Spider-Girl and wants to dress up as her, wouldn’t they be really disappointed at this costume?  And if they don’t care about looking like Spider-Girl, what’s even the point of having this costume under the Spider-Girl brand with the heroine right on the front to sell it? o_O
Just for reference, here’s the Spider-Man outfit:

WTF!?  It’s not a generic blue prince costume with some web-lines, an eye mask and a tie?  B… but how would you know it was a Spider-MAN otherwise?
Edit: To the people coming from various sites and news sources:
1) As I noted in this post, I’ve checked all of the Wal-Mart children’s costumes and there are no accurate Spider-Girl costumes, so they don’t have an option for girls who want to dress as an accurate Spider-Girl.  The issue isn’t this one costume, it’s about how the default for girls is dresses and often pink, & how they don’t have the option to look like the heroine on the package. 
2) Spider-Girl is an actual hero in the Marvel comic books. She is not the same hero as Spider-Man, and she has a different costume.  I wasn’t saying “Spider-Girl” as short for “genderswapped Spider-Man”, I was referring to the actual superhero from Marvel comic books.
