(This isn't nearly as impressive as any of the other costumes posted here, but I figured I'd share it anyway!)

For Halloween this year, I wanted to parody the way that things for girls/women are always just the things for boys/men but in pink and "sexier." I decided to take the epitome of manliness and transform him into a feminist icon. Behold: Feminist Rambo!


I sewed a bandolier and headband out of pink camouflage fabric. But wait, what are those bullets in the bandolier?


They're OB tampons!


To accessorize my costume, I bought a toy M16 and painted it Pepto-Bismol pink, adding a black female icon to the stock. This is therefore not a great costume to wear in public (unless you want to be shot by a cop), but it was a big hit at the grad student parties I went to.

Here's a picture of all the components of the costume:


And here are a few more action shots:



Thanks for looking -- hope you found it amusing!

I did find it very amusing! I get really tired of exactly what you're talking about - the sexy, pink version of whatever guys are going as. Or just the skimpy version of anything, really. This was clever and I love the tampon bullets. Awesome job!
