|And my son goes, "yeah, candy!"|
|And don't get me started on the girl costumes. I don't consider myself a prude but I was shocked by how "sexy" some of the costumes designed for children were.|
Some of my more religiously conservative readers may take offense at the goddess costumes or some of the choices of heroines, but I think we can all agree that the idea of the site is awesome. The site features instructions on how to buy already made things to put together some awesome costumes for women. You don't have to be crafty to have a cool costume although some of their suggestions are not cheap.
It's kind of like this project. A photographer did not want her daughter to buy into the Disney princess mythology. She did a series of pictures dressing and posing her daughter as famous women.
|My favorite of the series.|
|This one is also awfully cute and much cooler than a Disney princess.|
I'm planning on using Take Back Halloween next year. Maybe James and I can find a cool man and woman pair to dress as.
