10 Rocking Hallowen Costume Ideas for Black Women

Halloween is almost here. I originally planned to attend one of Kid Fury's Trilloween parties  (either in DC or NYC) butttttttt the way my bank account works, you see, is... (if you do not know this cultural reference, you need to make friends with the Google). Long story short, I can't afford to travel out of town to party for a weekend (after doing it last weekend). So, now I will be spending my Halloween in Boston and luckily I have a party to attend. Now my task is to find a kickass costume. 

Last year, I was super creative and went as Captain Save-a-Hoe. I got a lot of compliments on my original (and budget-friendly) costume. 



This year I want to be creative, fun, and a little sexy. And, I really want to be all of those things while portraying a strong, black female character. Here are some of the ideas I came up with: 


Storm from the X-men



Carmen Jones (as portrayed by Dorothy Dandridge)



Josephine Baker in her famous Banana Dance costume 


Catwoman (as portrayed by Eartha Kitt)





















Janet Jackson in her Pleasure Principle video



Vixen of Justice League


Beyonce from Feeling Myself video


North West as Kanye West


Bumblebee from Teen Titans



Uhura from Stark Trek
