I’m really excited to go to Cologne for the Carnival in a week. It will be my first time in Cologne aswell. Thing is, I still need a costume. You can’t go to the Carnival in COLOGNE without a costume. Now I’ve been looking around and why was I even surprised when I realized there were rather large differences between mens and women’s costumes.
I was thinking about going as Alice (from Alice in Wonderland in the 2010 movie), because, obviously, the costumes were awesome. I would go as any of the characters really, just that Alice takes less work due the fact the only make-up I’d need is maybe some to make me look even paler. The other two are slightly more high-maintenance.
So I googled Alice in Wonderland, Costume to see if I could find anything resembling the dress. I came across a website that promised original film-costumes at a reasonable price.
This is what I found for Alice.
Really? Really? This is what Alice looks like? I don’t think so.
Not only is that the sluttiest Alice I’ve ever seen, but it’s February people! Wearing that, you’ll either end up getting a bad cold or flu or simply having to wear your jacket all the time, hiding the slutty costume.
I remember googling Wonder Woman because I wanted to find a figure, a symbol for strength in women. What did I find? Kim Cardashian and Megan Fox in a skin-tight costume, hiding only what was necessary to be worn in public, having their boobs burst out of the top like giant balloons filled with water.
Of course she’s not as good and strong and respected as superman. I’m guessing she’s just something a lonely comic lover can…get happy…to.
But look at that outfit? Does that look practical to you for flying around and fighting off bad guys? Besides, I doubt a woman can really be that muscular and still have boobs that big without getting implants.
I bet it’s not even easier to get dressed when you’ve got less to put on. You’ve got to check everything’s in the right place first.
Is Carnival – or Halloween or any themed party – an excuse for women to go dressed as a stripper?
I happen to be a woman-in-the-making and I prefer to go fully clothed, especially as these occasions tend to take place in winter or autumn. Nobody ever thought of timing these things for summer or spring; thanks Pagans!
To finish; I here-by present the worst female Musketeer costume Google could come up with. Honestly, I sometimes think about going into costume design just so girls don’t have to freeze when they dress up.
Seriously, who picked that colour combination; and those boots and she is certainly not a real blonde either.
As I keep saying: Impractical!
