“Ghosts can do lots of cool stuff”. Hee Hee. This short about a babysitter forced to give out raisins for Halloween, and a ghost that just won’t leave, is funny, creepy, and kinda sweet. It’s written and directed by Michael Goldberg. Happy Halloween, everyone!
This site has mini-biographies of women along with suggestions of where to buy costume items if, like me, you stink at making stuff (or if, like me, you put off making stuff until the last minute and then you don’t have time). There’s also do-it-yourself tips for the craftier people among us (Hi, Mom, thanks for making my Regency dress this year!). The list of women profiled is lengthy and diverse. The categories are Glamour Grrls, Notable Women, Queens, and Goddesses and Legends. Some of these women are well-known and some are not – all are fascinating!
Here’s a partial list of costume ideas from the site:
Ada Lovelace (scientist)
Jane Austen (author)
Anna May Wong (actress)
Chalchiuhtlicue (Aztec Goddess)
Madame C.J. Walker (entrepreneur)
Grace O’Malley (pirate queen)
This site is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about women in history, whether you like playing dress up or not. Be sure to check out the blog in addition to the costume ideas. It’s funny and informative and entertaining and creative. Have fun!
