Mighty Girls Hallowe’en


I realize I’ve been neglecting the blog again. Sorry ’bout that.

Here, have some adorable little girls who would not be stopped from being exactly what they wanted to be for Hallowe’en by something as socially-constructed as gender.

Girl dressed as Link from Legend of Zelda - why must a girl be the damsel when she can be the hero?

    Cool/good Toph costume, easily one of my favorite characters from any medium, could have used some more work on the hair though (although it would be kinda hard to get it right, she has kind of impossible hair).

    After that I think the Rainbow Dash and park ranger costumes are my favorite.

    Never heard of ‘Doc McStuffins’…can’t believe thats a character for children.

    I think what I liked best was the wide variety of costume choices demonstrating the viability of gendered, cross-gendered, and non-gendered options.

    @Rowan: There’s a link in the Mighty Girl blog to who “Doc McStuffins” is. I agree it doesn’t sound like for kids but apparently it is.

    Jen of Epbot (and CakeWrecks) occasionally does this kind of thing with girls rocking traditionally male costumes.
