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
