Trick or Treat by Brandon Ragnar Johnson
Okay, so I love BUST magazine and was excited to see they had a top ten list of feminist costume ideas to combat the “I’m a sexy apple” inundation. But other than the topical Pussy Riot idea, I found it kinda tired. Rosie the Riveter won’t be a new idea for women who read BUST and a “piece of…
I read their list, too…& came away with similar feelings of ‘meh’. This is so much better.
Holy crap! Those are Halloween costumes. Well done Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick.
Year before last.
This year is looking like it’s going to be far more kid-friendly, but will still involve copious amounts of face and body paint.
I should send you two a pair of sugar skulls.
Have just ordered this.
Acquisition/assembly of NinjaSpyBoy’s Halloween costume has begun.
I’ve changed my mind.
THIS is the one I want.
I kind of want this.
Queen of the Nile Dress & Headpiece from The Pyramid Collection.
I’m hardly a trend-setter or style-maker, but I do get asked for shopping recommendations now & then.
So I thought I’d compile a short list of my favorites. Enjoy!
Organic Bouquet Eco-friendly company. Their flowers are grown without the use of harmful chemicals & last a lot longer. They promote environmental, social & economic sustainability.
King Arthur Flour Employee-owned & a source for amazing baking products & supplies, as well some of the best recipes on the ‘Net.
Think Geek Some of the coolest, geekiest products around. From arc reactors to Zelda, they carry shirts, games, toys, office & kitchen supplies…& they get a lot of my money.
Sweet & Sara Vegan marshmallows! All hand-made & amazing. So good, life-long carnivores love them.
Vegan Essentials Don’t let the name scare you off! While all the products are vegan, it’s also a good source for cruelty-free beauty supplies, clothing & more. And as a vegetarian, I can get hard-to-find things like veg-friendly (meaning, no gelatin) glucosamine.
Historical/Steampunk Emporium Victorian & steampunk-inspired clothes, from individual pieces to full outfits.
Daddy-O’s Really fun, retro-styled clothes for both women & men. Casual & formal. Shoes & other accessories, too!
Hips and Curves As a gal with what you might call an ‘ample bosom’, finding under-things that not only fit well but also lift & separate can be a challenge. Until I found this place. The standard for larger-sized bras tends towards the ‘that’s so ugly…’ ‘how ugly is it?’ side, so it’s nice to find some that not only work, but also prevent ‘I can’t believe he/she saw me in this!’ moments.
If you are a pixie, then this gorgeous 1940s Wonder Woman costume could be yours.
I, alas, have to pass. I don’t think I’ve had a 28” bust since the second grade…
