Call off the search, we’ve found the fabbest costume site of them all. TakeBackHalloween.org
is a site that is devoted to helping crafty women create amazing costumes that pay homage to some seriously cool gals. From myths and legends to Hollywood to kick-butt role models, they’ve got a bunch of ideas to choose from, all of which make for good launching points for your imagination, too. Bonus? They’ve sourced the pieces for your costume already. So. Easy.
Here are our faves:
Amaterasu, the Japanese sun
Amelia Earhart, the first
woman to fly solo non-stop across the U.S.
Hedy Lamarr, a glamazon and
inventor in her day
Isis, the Egyptian goddess of magic
Josephine Baker, an
international superstar and spy for the French Resistance during WWII
Queen Christina of
Sweden, who was called the Minerva of the North and often wore men’s clothes
because she didn’t like the demure behavior expected of women of her time
