Take Back Halloween is "a costume guide for women with imagination."
It has some creative ideas about alternatives to the overused "Sexy _____" theme.
(Sexy Fire hydrant! Sexy Lamp! Sexy Coffee Mug!)
No, seriously, better ideas than even those.
We think there’s a serious lack of opportunities in life to dress up in strange clothes and pretend to be somebody else. Unless you’re in show business, Halloween is pretty much it. Why waste it?
Take Back Halloween is sponsored by the Real History Project, which doesn’t have a snappy motto but is considering “No, Men Did Not Invent Everything.”
Miss C has donned various costumes through the years:
a skunk that sprayed you if you came too close
a wallaby princess
a burlap ghost (not recommended)
This year she has been alternating between two possibilities:
Dorothy Gale, and Mary Ingalls, post scarlet fever.
(Laura is deemed less interesting because she didn't go blind.)
And now she wants to know if we can get a guide dog and call him Toto.
Perhaps we'll go back to the burlap ghost next year.
