The School Girl

Hippoween Costume Ideas

The School GirlSo as Halloween nears, one of my favorite tasks is upon me….WHAT am I going to be for Halloween?!?!?

Now, I know what you’re thinking…I’m a girl, and girls like to dress up slutty for Halloween…NO, I’m not going to be a sexy mouse, or cat or whatever else you can make sexy…while it IS fun to dress up and put on gobs more make up than you usually do and get into character using the excuse that you were just acting the way you did because that’s how slutty “cheerleaders” act or whatever every day occupation was made slutty; I think is getting old…

Kid RockIt’s now expected that girls will look like hookers on Halloween, so I like to go against the grain on that. In the past few years, I’ve been Kid Rock, Meg White of The White Stripes and Slash from Guns ‘n Roses…so instead of using the excuse that I was out of control because I was a trampy-insert-noun-here, I can just say I was acting like a rock star!! And I didn’t even put that together until now as I’m writing this…

But my other point is that I think girls look hot when they’re not trying to look hot; it’s more natural…I had a friend in high school who was *gorgeous*…what was she for Halloween our senior year?? Big Bird. She totally won my respect as the rest of us tramped around as 70’s hookers and belly dancers.

Now am I passing judgment on girls who hooch it up for Halloween?? Not at all; shake what your Mama gave ya I say…I’m just saying that it’s *cool* if a girl shows that she has enough confidence in herself to look silly and still feel like a hottie…

I still have no idea what I’m dressing up as…I do have the itch to reprise Halloween 2000 as Kid Rock…it was just so fun!! But who knows; maybe I’ll get into the spirit of the show and dress up as a big, fat, nude hippo…I have confidence; but I don’t know if I have *that* much confidence!!

If you need some ideas, watch my report with Laura Lodewyck and be sure to check out one of the Chicago Costume locations.
