archersangel: (blue fairy)
from takebackhalloween.com's about page:
So what’s this all about, anyway?

First of all, Take Back Halloween isn’t a store. We’re not selling any of this stuff. We’re a resource guide: we come up with the costume designs, explain what you’ll need to pull off the look, and provide links to where you can buy the various components.

Our overall approach is about creating great costumes with stuff that is readily available: either already in your closet, on sale at eBay or some other retailer, or in stock at a costume store. No sewing! See our “how to use this website” page for a quick rundown on how it works.

What we mean by “taking it back”

We love Halloween. We really love Halloween. We think it’s cool that there’s one day a year when people can dress up as anything they want. What we don’t think is cool is that increasingly women are only supposed to dress up as one thing: “Sexy _____” (fill in the blank). Sexy Nurse, Sexy Cowgirl, Sexy whatever.

the have four categories: glamor grrls, goddesses & legends, notable women and queens.

many interesting ideas, but you may have to answer the question of "who are you supposed to be?" a lot.


*i know it's only the middle part of september, but it may take time to get stuff together for these & have time to make them.
