Halloween Costumes for the Modified – She’s the Man

females costuming as male characters

The modified generation is raising the bar for true equality, so why would all of us modified missies stick with traditionally female costumes?  Some of the coolest characters in our lives are male, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t allowed to play the part.  Just check out all these awesome male characters that are being given a breath of fresh air and a pinch of pizzazz by modified ladies around the world:

Alice in Wonderland

This an awesome story no matter which way you slice it, especially since the punchy protagonist is a chick!  Aside from the devilish Queen of Hearts though, most of the other awesome characters are male.  It’s totally okay though, because some of neatest Alice in Wonderland costumes for women are, believe it or not, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, and the Cheshire Cat.  Just check ’em out.  Seriously hot, cool, and creepy, right?

The Marvel Universe

In the world of Marvel and DC comics, there are plenty of female characters, but unfortunately most of them are secondary characters.  Bat girl, Supergirl, Spidergirl… For all of us pierced and tatted hotties who want to be the star of the show instead of playing sidekick to a rippling superhero, there’s nothing wrong with wearing the same exact thing that your fave male hero wears.  It’s great that there are “female versions” of a lot of hero and villain costumes, but just because we’re ladies doesn’t mean there has to be a skirt.

Tim Burton

Tim Burton has created a world teaming with female stars, and for that we thank him more than morbid words can say, but who can resist wanting to be all of the subjects in his awesome creative masterpieces?  Three male Burton characters that win my vote for female cross-over: Edward Scissorhands, Jack Skellington, and Beetlejuice.  If you’re planning to pull that last one though, remember to get your hair nice and big.  (We wouldn’t want anyone to think that you’re supposed to be Robin Thicke.)
