For some reason there seems to be this transition as a girl grows older where they go from dressing up fun for Halloween to dressing up slutty. Once a girl reaches a certain age it's no longer about actually looking like a favorite character or animal, it's all about getting a shorter skirt, a barely there shirt, and rabbit ears. Movies such as Mean Girls and Legally Blonde show this stereotypes quite perfectly. In my opinion, this is a ridiculous transition. As the idea goes though, "it gives girls permission to dress as provocative as desired and they can't get into trouble for it!", well I begged a differ.
Although it's only September here at Walt Disney World, Halloween is already in full swing with the Magic Kingdom theme park putting on Mickey's-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Just last Tuesday I went dressed as Lilo from Lilo and Stitch (see picture). It was such a fun night, with lots of great rare character meet-and-greets, and trick or treating! The biggest thing I noticed though, was how amazing so many people's costumes were, and they were still fully covered! Now you can question my statement as clearly my stomach is fully showing, but I dressed up just as Lilo is dressed from the movie.
So what am I getting at? You don't have to go slutty for Halloween, just dress up as the character or animal you want to be. Let's get back to our childhood roots of why Halloween is so fun: you get to be who ever you want to be! So instead of challenging each other of who can wear the least amount of clothing, let's challenge each other with who can have the most creative costume!
One month away!
What are you going for Halloween this year?
