The people of TakeBackHalloween.org offer costume ideas featuring historic women, goddesses and queens without any need for sewing or showing your belly button or boobs.
Just the fun of dressing up with a good serving of female pride on the side! A great alternative to being another sexy nurse/kitty/witch/hamburger because that’s nót what dressing up is about.

They offer the costume idea plus information on the person it depicts. With pictures. Some of these women I’ve never heard of. And I woulda shoulda! Because there are many more strong, intelligent, stubborn, smart, powerful and weird women than old skool wikipedia has led mankind to believe for centuries.
Check out their website and consider sponsoring them in their Kickstarter as they run this operation and site without adverts or endorsements.
