Halloween is fast approaching, and I still haven’t a clue what I’m going to wear. I’m hoping to get inspired whilst searching for inspiration for you guys. Ladies. Whatever. I have a challenge for this year, though: Think outside the box. This is your year to be something clever and creative, something you threw together yourself, possibly in the six minutes before leaving for the party. 
 
Our first theme in the series is classic pop culture icons, showcasing costumes for the ladies. Are there any guys that even read this sucker? Anybody? *echo, echo, echo*
 
Other classic ideas include: a Pan-Am flight attendant, Carmen Miranda, Marilyn in that dress, a go-go girl, somebody off Mad Men, or a flapper.

  2. I don’t see anything wrong with dressing sexy on halloween. It shouldn’t be the only thing u go for tho. This yr i went as… Er well i guess it could best be described as a gryffindor with a lightsaber who saw a scilence… Many times. Hehe. Guess i couldnt decide on a fandom. Anyways, if youre comfortable with ur body i dont see why not show it off a bit. But i dont wanna freeze my butt off when i go trick or treating. Youre never too old for free candy ;)

  3. I was thinking that a great costume for myself would be Mother Nature. Any long dress would do and you could wear birds and flowers in your hair…

  4. I love this blog! So glad I stumbled upon it via Pinterest. I’d love to show you the costumes I made for two young ladies. They wanted to be suited in “A League Of Their Own” uniforms. Check them out on my blog if you’re interested. Also.. it was my first go at making dresses and installing zippers. ha!

  5. These costumes are very creative, I applaud the fact that there’s people out there like me who don’t like the slutty costumes.
    Halloween is not “I can dress like a whore and get away with it” day! It’s sad that girls can have such little self-respect in that matter. :/ I’m a 16 year old girl and I would NEVER wear anything so exposing like the costumes I’m seeing around.

    1. Who cares? Do your own thing and don’t be so judgmental of others. It does not make you a better person if you don’t dress slutty.

        1. Agreed. It definitely DOES make you a better person to not put your goods on display like a street corner hooker. People need to have some class. I would be humiliated to be their mother/sister/friend/daughter.

        2. The better person in any situation is the one who treats others well, which includes unwarranted judgement. It is no ones place to judge a “street corner hooker”, and it is equally no ones place to judge someone they deem to be dressing like one
