Halloween Costume Tip #5: Let your costume help you make a statement. You want others to recognize your costume and, more importantly, know that it is a reflection of who you are and your values. Let the costume be fun while considering what it says about you.
Let your costume help you make a statement. Halloween is a great time to make a statement about who you are and what matters to you. Rosie the Riveter is a symbol of strength, courage, and empowerment. That’s a fabulous message to share with friends, co-workers, family, and even strangers who see you in your “We Can Do It!” costume. It’s also a great conversation starter.
Halloween Costume Tip #6: Be sure to consider others who will see you. Tips 5 and 6 work together. Tip 5 has you thinking about who you are and how you want to present yourself. Tip 6 reminds you to consider others. Will you only wear your costume to a party with other adults? Consider how your costume might work with your group of friends or your children. Find something that can be appropriate for different ages.
Not everyone will know who Rosie the Riveter is. This year we added our polkadot name patch…your Rosie ID. Discuss Rosie with friends; you might even consider Rosie appropriate for a group costume. After all, Rosie and her colleagues all dressed similarly. You can do the same thing. You and a friend, or several friends, might all go as Rosie the Riveters. Or how about you and your daughter? We have a number of precious mother/daughter photos. We even have a great photo of a mother and son. It’s never too early to show respect for strong women.
Halloween Costume Tip #7: Get a cost-effective costume. Avoid costumes made of cheap materials that just end up being thrown away or stashed forever in the back of your closet. Some cheap Halloween outfits pull apart at the seams before the night is over. How about a costume with elements you can incorporate into your wardrobe after Halloween is over?
This year, you can BE A ROSIE without emptying your piggy bank. Plus, you get high-quality gear such as the soft cotton bandana, the collar pin, the red and white polkadot socks (BE A ROSIE DELUXE) that you can wear any time. If you get the DIY kit, you get a poster you can frame. Plus, you can dress in your own jeans and blue work shirt from your closet and accessorize with our Rosie gear.
