Today we thought we’d concentrate on ladies fancy dress costumes.
Our remark about the lack of female werewolf outfits yesterday returns to a point we were making last year: There is not always a level playing field when it comes to costumes. One example is that there seem to be more superhero outfits available than there are superheroines, so it can be a bit tricky when it comes to a superhero/villains theme event. Others would also observe that, of the female superhero outfits that are available, some tend to be in the skimpy crop-top style which doesn’t suit everyone’s requirements. The same sort of thing happens with Halloween outfits: Whilst we know that there’s a school of thought that says ‘Girls don’t do gruesome’, it is, of course, their right to do so if they wish, but they then find that in many cases all the Market has to offer is female (and sexy!) versions of male icons of horror such as Jason and Chucky. We know the female is supposedly more deadly than the male, so where are the outfits from ‘Resident Evil’, ‘Alien’ or the Selene (of Underworld) combat suits?
Suffice it to say, here at Props n Frocks, once we’re aware of a problem, we do our best to deal with it. Stay tuned for further developments!
