  • As much as I love Disney, and dressing up at Halloween. I can’t help feeling this article is kinda old fashioned and archaic. It’s perfectly fine for girls to dress up as a pirate if they want. There is no reason whatsoever that they need to put lipstick and eyeshadow on too. They don’t have to be “glamorous”, just because they’re female. And likewise, boys can look “glamourous” if they like, let’s face it, Jack Sparrow wheres enough eyeliner, doesn’t he!

    Let’s have costume ideas for boys and girls, without the girls having to be “glamorous” versions. Do you have “non glamorous” princess costumes for the boys – I doubt it – maybe it’s something you could look into?
