Halloween Ideas

Interested in doing Halloween, yet not as interested in being a skimpy nurse, witch or Brittany-esque school girl?

Take Back Halloween has an interesting suggestion – for women to attire themselves in powerful women throughout the ages: Sumeria, Ancient Greece, to Jane Austen, and women-warriors. If you don’t consider it for Hallowe’en, then keep it in mind for when kids have projects to complete on innovative and historical women.

  1. It’s an interesting thought. I’ve frequently found myself in Hallowe’en costumes that require a fairly long explanation – which is great when at work, or out for coffee with a few friends, but when I’m out at a social event, party, pub, or whatever, I find it a lot more challenging.. What did you do for the past Hallowe’en?

    1. I was trying – a week prior – to learn/research about, and make a Renaissance kirtle. Other than giving myself back pain for sewing for several hours straight and a permanent dimpled callous on my right pointer (I dislike thimbles), I shelved it for the spring. I wore a black skirt & orange blouse instead to work.
