In the last few posts I’ve shared my concern with the sexy Halloween costume trend. Halloween is coming up quickly, so if you don’t already have a costume here are some fun ideas. Some are empowering and others are just fun, but non require squeezing yourself into tiny strips of fabric!
Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls has a great list of empowering costumes on it’s site. Want to dress like a Supreme Court justice? They’ve got you covered. BuzzFeed has a great list of children’s book characters that make fun costumes.
Here are some other ideas:
Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. All you need is a bow and arrows and a braid, the rest of your outfit is secondary.
Hermione Granger. You can go with an old graduation robe if you don’t have the perfect Hogwarts robe, or a white button down, school uniform type skirt and cardigan will work. The key is to have the frizzy/wavy hair and a wand.
Waldo or Wanda from Where’s Waldo. Red striped shirt- check. Red beanie – check. Leftover 3D glasses with the lenses punched out- check. This may be the easiest costume ever, but everyone will know exactly who you are!
What are some other suggestions for fun Halloween costumes?
