Halloween Costume Countdown 8
As Dita Von Teese once said "It`s not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood". She was talking about Star Wars of course, but she could have implied the immense joy to be had channeling the sophisticated pin-up style feminine icon of the first half of the twentieth century. (The history of pin-up girls is long, so this is not an accurate time frame.)Though not always practical at certain times it is undoubtedly pleasurable to pay tribute to the time honored tradition of veneration of the female form and sexuality by styling yourself a pin-up goddess. A Halloween party is the perfect occasion.
