A slenderly Absurd But Sincere List of Feminist Halloween Costumes.
I’ll never understand why people make amusing of cosplayers for being nerds but then go every out to dress up at Halloween. The costumes are great! They’re a chance to look like somebody else for a small while and to celebrate the fictional character (and IRL heroes) you love. Whether you prehend that opportunity at every meeting or just once a year, I put together this list of actual costume ideas.
This Empire character is simple: a leopard-print coat and a leopard-print hat will make you this ferocious and fashionable woman set to take reign of her personal record label. Gest5
2. Tina Belcher and Family
Bob’s Burgers is the endowment that keeps on giving. I like this Tina/Louise cosplay I saw at Geek Girl Con that enclosed the chalkboard burger especials signed. Plus, if you dressing up as Tina, you can just stand in the area of the party groaning from anxiousness.
3. Abby Wambach and Megan Rapinoe
Lace-up your shoe and put on a gold medal to be a member of the US Women’s National Soccer group. Maybe bring confetti so people can chance a little victory parade for you
4. Agent Carter
Red fedora. Blue trenchcoat. White blouse. Nailed it.
5. Annalise Keating
Pair a tailor-made coat with a sleeveless attire with a little handheld chalkboard that reads, “How to get gone with MURDER.”
6. Inside Out & Emotions
Nothing beatniks going to an occasion dressed as Sadness!
7. Imperator Furiosa
There are going to be so galore Furiosas this Halloween that they could form their personal clone army and take down Immortan Joe. Make sure that both your costume and position is full of grit.
8. All of the Orphan Black Clones
Speaking of clon armies, how great would it be to have a dozen friends dressed up as all incarnation of Tatiana Maslany in Orphan Black?
9. Mad Men Without Don trader
My impossible dream is to get a supercut of Mad Men that redact out all the men. At least on Halloween, we could cosplay that the show was actually just about Joan, Betty, Peggy, and Dawn?
As long as I’m fantasizing, how about a version of The Walking Dead where Michonne’s in charge instead of Rick Grimes? Bonus factor with this costume if you run into zombies on an occasion.
11. Sand Snakes
Resist Colon overlords, advocate for women’s equivalence, stab few people. All in a day’s work for this crowd of sisters from Game of Thrones.
12. Jurassic World
Get a friend to dressing up as a T-Rex. Then you can just wearing high heels and run gone from them for hours! Or, go the subverter route and put the dinosaur in heels.
13. Bessie Coleman
The first African-American woman pilot is highlighting in Kate Schatz’s new book Rad American Women A-Z. In component to this star aviator, Rad American Women features an amazing list of real-life women you can dressing up as for Halloween.
14. Patti Smith
Other picks from Kate Schatz. I just want to see an entire bunch of small kidsweared black skinny ties and singing “Because of the Night.”
15. Isadora Duncan
One final brilliant content from Kate Schatz. Do you have a kid who loves to dress up as a ballerina? Give them a bedsheet and cue up a few modern dance videos on YouTube for intuition.
16. The Supremes
The book Notorious RBG features the plentitude of people dressing up in honor of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. justness Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan are maybe less fashionably fancy (no frilly collar) but merit to memorialize, too.
17. The Supremes
With microphones, not a beetle. You’ll have to be capable to hold a note with this costume, but it could efficient spontaneous Halloween 2020 karaoke!
18. Boss Witch Hermione
Imagine a badass Devil Wearing Prada-way Cheap Feminist Hermione taking names, conclusion overlords, and refusing to do anyone’s work for them.
19. An existent Witch
I love this automotive vehicle article about witches who don’t have component hats. There are galore pop culture witches to select from, plus real-life women who were frustrate for being female.
20. Dana Scully and Stella Gibson
The X-Files’ FBI agent just The Fall’s hard-nosed investigator, and it’s so much like looking into a mirror that they determine to dump the subpar dudes around them and start their personal crime-solving agency. I’m already writing the million-dollar fanfiction in my head, so y’all should jump on this.
21. Frank and Claire Underwood
Licitly the scariest people on this list.
22. Frank and Claire from a traveller
Less scary. Unless you’re a British army recreant threatening to onslaught Claire, in which case she will knife you.
