#BlackGirlTips [Halloween Edition]: Costumes For Black Girls

      It’s that time of year again: candy, trick-or-treating, haunted houses and cultural appropriation run rampid during the month of October. Why? HALLOWEEN! This year, while searching for a costume, I was instantly turned off by the multitude of appropriating white women in costumes that just wouldn’t work for me or in costumes that I found just plain stupid.

I knew I wasn’t the ONLY one having this problem so I decided to form a list for all my sisters out there struggling to find a halloween costume that just….works. After seeing the Bruce Jenner/Caitlyn Jenner Transformation costume in a local halloween store, I realized that this halloween would be an interesting one for sure. Without further ado, here is a compilation that I hope appeases the demands and needs of Black girls everywhere!
