So I was thinking about Halloween the other day - you know, plotting my costume. It occurred to me that the costumes I like BEST are generally considered BOY costumes. Take for example my Storm Trooper costume. It is an awesome costume which I totally rock. But when I wore it for a costume contest, the judges could not get over the fact that I was a GIRL! Where is it written that Storm Troopers are all boys? We have women in armed services and that is technically what a Storm Trooper is, right?
I think this applies to SuperHeroes as well. Why does Captain America HAVE to be a boy? Although I think Chris Evans TOTALLY ROCKS as Cap'n, I can see myself in the roll bringing a certain girlish charm along with my FIERCENESS. Don't you think?
Don't I look real mean? So then I got to thinking about dressing as the other Avengers. I KNOW I could absolutely pull off the Black Widow thing. I am BEAUTIFUL in all my PUGNESS, fast like she is. . . and determined like she is. . . and clever as she is. PLUS I look really FINE in Black Leather.
Look how poised I am - how confident. Now THAT'S how a woman should be. But this is copping out on my original position of why should SuperHeroes generally be BOYS. So I puzzled and Puzzled and PUZZLED over which boy SuperHero to dress as.
I was getting no where - nothing SANG to me.
So I asked my Mommy which Avenger or SuperHero she thought I should be for Halloween. She looked at me. . . looked at Molly. . .looked at me. . . How about this?
