There is something freeing about Halloween. After all, you
get to dress up as anything or anyone you want and run around asking for candy.
Well…until you get a good look at the costumes available. Unless you’re DIYing
your own, costumes for girls are getting kinda limited. You can be a female
character or you can be sexy—bonus points for being both. But if you just want
to channel a classic hero like, say, Superman for the night sans short skirt
and serious cleavage? Forget about it.
Well, we’re throwing costume shop rules out the window this
year. Here are seven characters we’d gladly dress up as this year.
Um, it’s October. As in brrr. As in Mom would be chasing
after you holding a coat if you wore this. Besides, with matching
jumpsuits, this one makes for a great group costume—complete with ghost, of
Or with your new hipster glasses, “Hipster Harry Potter,” as
we like to call him. Nobody said ya had to stick with Hermione.
Looking for some old-school adventure? Travel the world—er,
neighborhood for a night as good ol’ Indy. Don’t forget your bull whip!
Mario and Luigi
The costume available here is called “Heroic Maria.” Ladies,
let’s just be Mario complete with faux ‘stache and a Luigi sidekick, OK?
In fact, grab the whole gang (and a lot of tin foil to
recreate the armor) and go as The Avengers. Ya don’t have to go all “Sassy Thor” with it.
Hm, we’re noticing a superhero trend here… If the Wonder
Woman barely-there bit isn’t quite your style, why not grab a black jumpsuit
and DIY it up, Gotham style?
The Mad Hatter
This one is just begging for a vintage store. Hello,
tailored jacket, tweed pants and adorable top hat, goodbye perplexing mini skirt.
Who are you dressing
up as this year? Share your ideas in the comments!
