I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in years but this year the whole cosmetic department at my job decided to dress up so I just went with it. As I child, I loved dressing up for Halloween (actually, I loved playing dress up in general; I was one of those types of kids). I actually remember one Halloween, I can’t remember exactly who I was suppose to be, I wore the pink bobbed wig from my costume for like 2 weeks straight. I’m sure my dad threw it away while I was sleeping and I was pissed to say the least.
I know there are many critics of Halloween that believe the “holiday” is evil spirited or just another day made up by corporate money grubbers but that’s just some perspectives. For me, halloween is an opportunity to channel a part of you that lives deep inside. Or even just to express your appreciation for someone or something and just totally “fan out” this one day of the year. Some of my favorite costumes that I ever dressed up in were Cleopatra and Athena. Continuing on with my “feminist” costume trend, this year (2014) I decided to go with Rosie the Riveter, the symbol of female capability post WWII.
