I’m brainstorming on a few ideas for Halloween, but I don’t think I can come up with anything that can top last year’s Slutty Abraham Lincoln. The costume started out because someone was criticizing how women’s Halloween costumes are always kind of unnecessarily sexualized, and we were coming up with the least-sexy “slutty____” costume ideas. I saw, “Slutty Abraham Lincoln” and I was like… I HAVE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

I used to do some amateur drag king stuff back in the day, and I usually have some costume type stuff around all the time…and just *happened* to have an 1800s style tailcoat. I made the costume from bits and pieces and also did my own makeup.

There may also be a video of me drunkenly karaoke-ing “Civil War” by Guns N Roses in this costume. Shhh.

* i also made my partner’s Macho Man Randy Savage costume
