Six Kick Ass Women to be This Halloween

10:11 AM

So you want to be able to stand out from the cliched cats and mouse customs that you'll be seeing a lot of this year, and try something different. You don't want to be some docile animal, or super frilly cheerleader this year. Instead you want to become a woman who kicks ass this year. Well lucky for you, I have the perfect list of women -new and old-you can be this Halloween! All of these women -whether super heroes, lawyers, or super sleuths, are take charge women who hold the room whenever they come in. Take a look for yourself and see how you can portray these characters this Halloween.


Before I even go further, if you're not black, or do not have a similar skin tone to Michonne - DO NOT DARKEN OR LIGHTEN YOUR SKIN TO PORTRAY THIS CHARACTER! Black face is highly offensive and will get you a lot more trouble than you're asking for for a simple Halloween costume. If your dress, accessories, and  other aspects of your costume are right, there is no need for face paint. Thank you. PSA is over. Michonne is the zombie slaying, sword wielding hero in the walking dead, and it's super easy to dress as this Heroine.  Get a purple tank top, brown combat boots, gray jeans, and a bandana. You can probably buy a wig to get her hair, and add a sword if you want, but most people will get the idea.

Lara Croft

Lara Croft
Am I the only woman who wanted to be long haired adventurer? Tomb Raider was my favorite game on the Playstation, and I always wished I could leap, jump, and explore like this heroine. The graphics and wardrobe of the character have definitely changed over time, giving you more options to be her this Halloween. For the old school look: Green cargo pants, a tan tank top, combat boots, and of course Lara's signature braid.

Daenarys Targareon

Who wouldn't want to be Daenarys Targareyn, Mother of Dragons, first of her name? Dani has a lot more looks than I originally thought of, so here are two that I think will be really easy to do. The blonde hair is the most identifying feature of Dani, without this, you are nothing! Gold accent jewelry, gladiator sandals, and a flowy white dress will help you achieve this look.  (And if you want to be true to the book, go for purple contacts) Add a stuffed dragon for added effect.
Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope

She may not have her it together when it comes to relationships, but this woman does know how to handle business. Thanks to the new line created by the show from Limited, it's easier than ever to impersonate Ms. Pope this Halloween. But, if you want a more affordable choice (ie. in your closet), but if you don't want to splurge to be Miss Pope, don't worry. Opt for neutral tones and colors in the pale pink. Olivia loves jackets, a good suit, and sometimes a pair of gloves.

Abby (Sleepy Hollow)

If you're a fan of Fox's Sleepy Hollow, then you'll know it's easy to dress as lieutenant Abby Mills. Since she's always running around defeating the horses of the apocalypse, comfort is here go to fashion choice. You can be Abby by wearing blue jeans, a comfy jacket, and boots as seen above. Adding a badge and handcuffs will help bring the look together.

I will update this with more amazing women when the ideas come to me, so check back soon for more costumer ideas!
