Costume ideas ...
It’s that time of the year again, when you struggle between looking hot but also being funny and relatable. Halloween falls on a weekend this year, so we’re basically committed for not one but three days this year. But it’s not just about having the best costume, it’s also about signaling that you’ll freely talk about vaginas and UTIs without any shame.
Here’s some cheeky costume ideas for this Halloween…
Ghost but make it a tampon
Take the classic bedsheet ghost costume, but tell people you’re a tampon instead. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, dab some blood on yourself for some spooky period vibes. (spooky to the male gaze)
Janelle Monae from the music video for “Pynk”
Janelle Monae is our queer idol, from coming out in Rolling Stone to releasing the most amazing music video for her song, “Pynk”, wearing the most amazing vagina pants. Recreate this vagina moment with your own take on the vagina or vulva.
From our favorite sex positive Netflix show, Sex Education
We love every character on Sex Education, so it’s so hard to choose. But that means you can dress up as the character you most deeply identify with or make it a group costume with your cheeky friends.
Maybe you’re a Maeve Wiley, edgy and hardened on the outside, but a softie on the inside. You’ve helped start a sex clinic at your high school, and wear all black outfits with a leather or fringe jacket and fishnet tights.
Or maybe you’re a Lily Iglehart, who writes tentacle erotica and cosplays in her spare time. She’s always sporting her iconic space buns and wearing eclectic, colorful get-ups.
If you can’t be him, you can dress up as him: our queen, Eric Effiong. If you are a master at eye make-up and are 100% that bitch, bless each Halloween party with your presence as the greatest character and most supportive friend Netflix has ever seen.
Gwyneth’s “This Smells Like My Vagina” Candle
Nothing screams vagina quite like a vagina candle—the vagina candle.
While Goop may have sold out from their coveted “This Smells Like My Vagina” candle in a couple of hours, you can bring it back for a lifetime of Halloween vitriol. Just be sure to add your own umami.
