Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your Halloweekend festivities! Halloween is the one night (or weekend) that everyone can dress up in whatever or be whoever they want. My favorite is looking at all of the creative costumes everyone wears, along with parents posting pictures of their kids and dogs in their outfits.
The one thing I’m not really on the same bandwagon with is sexy costumes. For me, I’ve never been really interested in them. Sure it would be cool to dress up and feel really confident and sexy for one night, but if I really wanted to, I could dress up in a sexy outfit whenever I want to.
I actually always find myself dressing up as strong female characters. For instance, this year I picked dressing up as Rey from Star Wars. She is the new badass Jedi in town who defeated the evil guy in the first movie (yeah I know she is not a redhead, but I’m making her be one for a night). A couple of years before, I picked Merida from Brave – one of the princesses who refuses to be treated like a typical girl in her time and who wants to have the same rights as a man. The last costume before that I was Ginny Weasley, another strong female character that helps defeat the bad guys in the amazing Harry Potter series.
For me, when I dress up as these characters, I feel like the most confident woman I could be. It’s like their badassery mentality is transferred to me when I put on their outfits. They are three characters that inspire me to become a better woman and help me understand that I can achieve anything as long as I work at it and fight for it.
So I could dress up in a sexy costume, but I’d rather do this.
Love – Worldly Redhead
