If you ever done a simple Google search on “Halloween costumes”, I’m sure you noticed all the female costumes explicit styles.
I mean come on, what is this!
Looking at the pictures from my last post the differences are just that more apparent.
Withes at the turn of the 20 century.
And don’t even get me started on the gender aspect of this issue….
“ops, I forgot my pants…”
These guys says it all…
To be fair, not all costumes out there are this “sexyfied”. And actually I found some ones I approve of.
1950s hard working women
Ok, but apart from the “cheap multi manufactured look” I could totally dress as a 17th century witch.
But I would rather make my own costume. Here are some suggestions.
Anne Boleyn – Alive and powerful or dead and scary.
Elisabeth I (Annes daugther) – perfect for any read-head 16th century enthusiast
Queen Kristina (of Sweden) – wear your fancy 17th century gown or cross dress in men’s riding outfits Kristina style.
Marie Antoinette – Any fancy 18th century gown (francaise/anglaise/chemise) will work. Or you can go for the dead queen look.
Jean of arc – if you’r more into medieval costumes.
Elizabeth Báthory – If you want to go real dark, dress as one of the original inspirations for Bram Stokers Dracula.
She is on my list for possible Halloween costumes every year. maybe next year…
