Take Back Halloween’s Costume Ideas


While I think it’s changing, for many years I approached Halloween with a chip on my shoulder due to the masses of scantily clad women in unimaginative costumes. (Yikes, I sound like my grandma!) At any rate, I love the suggestions for costumes based on historical figures from Take Back Halloween. It includes ideas and tips for dressing up ranging from Ada Hart Lovelace, an early computer pioneer, to Chalchiuhtlicue, an Aztec river goddess.
