All Hallow’s Eve is just around the corner! Halloween is a terrific opportunity to explore the gender spectrum through clothing and accessories. But BEWARE!!! The veil between the mortal world and the spirit realm will be as thin as the excuses people give for not using your pronouns.
Still scrambling to finalize a most excellent enby ensemble that people won’t be able to misgender? Never fear, boo! These sexy costumes are perfect for every GNC ghoul and gob-them!
There’s nothing spookier than a good, old fashioned ghost! Channel how dead you feel inside every time someone calls you “Sir” at the coffee shop by donning a simple, non descript bed sheet. No one will be able to see your clenched fists when they first ask if you’re “supposed to be Charlie Brown?”
Me-ow! You’ll be “feline” fine dressed as every witch’s favorite sidekick. Don’t stop at kitty ears and whiskers—try a frisky enby name like Binx, Grimalkin, or Pyewacket to drop a few breadcrumbs. Plus, people are SUPER careful about correctly gendering pets, so maybe they’ll get your pronouns right for once.
Everyone will want a “peek at you” when you’re dressed as PIKACHU! Whether you go as an amorphous, yellow blob or an amorphous, pink blob, you’ll catch ‘em all looking at you wondering your pronouns! Side note, isn’t it crazy how your 22 year-old incel cousin Nathan can pronounce “Vaporeon” but can’t stop using your dead name at family cookouts?
‘Tis the season for pumpkin EVERYTHING and orange is definitely your color! Thanks to years of practicing forced smiles while being referred to as “darling” or “sweetheart” at work, this costume is an easy, last minute choice to have people asking your pronouns. You’ll be glowing from the inside out when everyone at the party puts their pronouns on their nametags! Pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes, so binders are optional. Wear what makes you feel jolly!
Vampires are the original gender benders of the horror lexicon. Are they a man? A woman? A bat? Who cares, just BITE ME! If you start to feel a chill down your spine, don the ultimate agender outerwear–a cape. And remember, everyone looks great in eyeliner!
Don’t spend another October creeped out by gender norms. Halloween only comes once a year, so treat yo’ self to a costume that will make you feel totally fly!
