10 Best Halloween Costumes
Dressing ip is probably the best aspect of Halloween – well dressing up while munching on candy and watching a horror movie. You gotta have priorities, after all. When I was a kid, it was all about the sparkles and feathers of dressing up – getting to paint my face with cool colours and parts of my Mom’s makeup stash, and wear wigs and then more sparkles. Of course, as the years went on the costumes of fancy became less creative and more … sexy.
Can I get a “Ugh yeah!” for that? Why is it that all the costumes for girls and women are sexified? Who the heck even came up with things like a Sexy Bert and Ernie? Or sexy condiments? Costumes are supposed to be more of an expression of your inner nightmares and desires, not so much a tool to be a generic sexified crayon. Or at leats, for me, a costume requires more thought then just slapping on a mini skirt and calling it a different day than any other day …
So in light of all that crazy let’s-make-female-costumes-as-objectiifying-as-possible – I am counting down some great ideas for costumes that don’t require a safe search on FB…
(10) Grayscale, or black-and-white film stars
Who wouldn’t want to be a silent film star in the colour of your friends? Put on a pair of low-heeled flapper shoes and a fringe dress and you’re well on your way! Don’t forget the pearls!
(9) The Corpse Bride
Because the movie is sweet, Emily is awesome and what a gorgeous costume is this!?
(8) Demon Eyed White Haired Ghouly
Because just once, you really want to scare the crap out of your neighbours.
Because I have a great love for everything Hitchcock. And you should too.
(6) Rosie the Riveter
Because yeah. You knew there would be more of this to come 🙂
Because, really, who hasn’t felt a little bit like this on a Monday morning?
(4) Comic Girl
Another reason we love Halloween: Making makeup even more fun! Seriously. Who doesn’t want to paint their faces like this?
(3) Female Han Solo or Female Data – depending on which Sci Fi genre you follow …
I’m a Han Solo girl myself, but live and let live, I say.
(2) Steampunk Heroine
Because what’s the most fun you can have with your time between conventions? Oh yeah, you know it.
and my favourite for this year:
(1) Sugar Skull
For me, this year is all about the artistry and the colours of the sugar skulls so popular in Mexico. I can’t get over the beauty of the designs, so that’s what I am up to this year. What kind of costume do you plan on wearing this year?
