Politics and current events always make for creative Halloween costumes. In 2004, I remember seeing a Florida with hanging chads. I’m sure there will be plenty of folks representing the recession or health care reform.
That said, if I was going to be a political figure, I’d be Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
- Black judge’s robe* (can be substituted with a graduation or choir robe)
- White high-neck blouse and skirt/pants below the robe (or a red/blue power suit)
- Copy of the US Constitution
- Wavy dark hair
- Bonus: for those of you who think you’re wise Latinas, a “wise” tshirt below the robe and a baby doll cut in half (see: King Solomon)
Unless you find a tiny robe, this costume doesn’t satisfy the theme for most adult women’s costumes. Oh well.
*While doing research for this, I found a “sexy” judge’s robe. Um. Really?
