Halloween is approaching fast, lesbos, and that means it’s time for you to make the final preparations for your costume. If you play it right, this year’s Halloween party could be the best night of your life. Unlike, say, Christmas with its tiny mugs of eggnog and New Year’s Eve with its tiny champagne flutes, Halloween’s perfect mix of free-flowing booze, unlimited sugar, and role-playing women create an environment that is rife with makeout possibilities. But not just any old vampire, witch, or firefighter costume is going to send the right message. You need to be specific. (If a girl doesn’t know a red-and-white William McKinley High School Cheerios uniform isn’t just a cheerleader costume, you don’t need to go home with her anyway.)
Below, find 15 lesbian-themed costume ideas that could change your life — or at least All Hallowe’s Eve.
1. Xena (Warrior Princess!)
What you need: Form-fitting body armor, sword, chakram.
2. Dark Willow (Witch!)
What you need: A cloak of the damned (black blazer/trousers), black wig, visible veins (black eye-liner ought to do the trick).
3. Madame Vastra (Time-traveling Silurian super-sleuth!)
What you need: Victorian era-dress/cloak, katana, lizard-ish mask (or handmade face cast).
