8 October, 2015

Fierce female dress-up inspo for Halloween!

This a list for girls who are just tired of seeing the same old “sexy [school girl/animal/nurse/etc.]” costume every Halloween. Let’s face it, it’s 2015 and you can be sexy without having to literally say you’re sexy. With that being said, here are some kick ass costume ideas for this Halloween.

Alternative Halloween Costumes - Cleopatra


Ok, so this is definitely a classic, but for good reason. Powerful, female pharaoh. Nicknamed Serpent of the Nile. Unrivaled beauty. Complicated love triangle with the Roman Empire’s most powerful men, Caesar and Marcus Antonius. Played by Elizabeth Taylor. The list goes on; Cleopatra is THE badass queen. Plus, this costume can be super fun: a wig, funky make-up, lots of gold bangles.

Alternative Halloween Costumes - Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

The famous Mexican artist with a dark, complicated and intriguing personal life, plus an infamous unibrow. Don’t lie, you’ve wanted to know what you’d look like with one ever since you started tweezing when you were 13. This costume pays homage to one of the most famous artists of the 20th century, while also giving you the excuse to pull out all of your funky, colourful floral patterns and wear them at once.

Alternative Halloween Costumes - Coco:Anna

Coco Chanel or Anna Wintour

Classic chic or contemporary cool, you pick. Both of these iconic women dominate the fashion industry of their times. Choose between pearls or a fierce pair of sunglasses, a little black dress or patterned suit, 1930s curls or a manicured bob, and make the streets your catwalk… #girlboss.

Alternative Halloween Costumes - Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot

Members of the Russian feminist punk rock band have loud style and even louder mouths. Their guerrilla performances-slash-protests have seem them thrown into the international spotlight since 2012. These chicks are so badass they’re not even afraid to stand-up against Vladimir Putin.

Alternative Halloween Costumes - Khaleesi

Daenerys Targaryen

Ok, yeah, we’re still mad about the end of the last season of Game of Thrones, but that doesn’t take away from how much we all still love and wish to be Daenerys Targaryen a.k.a. Khaleesi. She’s the Mother of Dragons and the last hope for Westeros! You can even try to convince a special someone to be your Khal Drogo, because we still have not forgotten about him.
