solidarity sisters!

"halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it." cady-mean girls

the month of october and halloween are pretty much my favorite time of year. i like spooky. i like purple and black. i really like dressing up in a costume. and it's extra special when there is an event/holiday associated with costume wearing. but what bugs me to no end are those people that choose to desecrate such a "spiritual" holiday with what i like to call sluttony. sluttony is when women choose to be dressed down, as in underdressed, on a holiday dedicated to dressing up and being overdressed.

if you google "halloween costumes female", the first 3(appropriate for this blog) pictures that pop up are as follows,

kim kardashian as wonder woman:

a pirate costume, not a wench costume:

a "wizard":

all three pictures are clearly showing a love for costumes and imagination and have nothing to do with flaunting body parts(insert heavy sarcasm here). i think that if hermione granger had worn that third costume as her school uniform at hogwarts, there certainly would have been a different theme to the entire harry potter series. it would be more like harry potter and the chamber of dirty secrets.
so i say, solidarity sisters! we need to quash this uninspired and degrading trend! halloween is about creativity and gluttony. be beautiful, be ridiculous, be daring, but leave the unnecessary cleavage at home. make halloween family friendly again.

Every time I read your blog I chuckle! I agree with leaving the cleavage (& pecs) covered!

I hear ya sister! I was at a halloween shop the other day and was discusted by all the slutty costums there. I think funny and creative trumps slutty anyday! I'm finding it harder and harder to find costumes to cover my G's!
