Disney princesses and sexy bunnies aren't the only costume choices for women. We can be so many things in this world - astronauts, politicians and world leaders - why not dress up as someone who we aspire to be like this Halloween?
One photographer and mother had the same idea. She didn't want her young daughter to be pigeon-holed into thinking that the only inspirational women out there are Jasmine and Kim Kardashian, so she dressed her as more traditional, established women like Susan B. Anthony and Jane Goodall.
While it might not be as fun, these costumes are certainly original after seeing countless Barbies and Devils trick-or-treating each year. Why not actually inspire other females with your Halloween ensemble, rather than perpetuate the "it's okay to dress like a sloot because it's a holiday" mentality?
Take a look at how this mom outfitted her child for some examples. You probably already have most of these items in your closet, it's just about knowing how to put the look together.
Want to really make a splash at your Halloween party? Do the unexpected and dress like an empowered, strong woman like you are.
