Judgmental Halloween

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)
  • Gavel
  • 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?

    I should have been Alberto Gonzales for Halloween. That would have been fun. But alas, that shipped has sailed and Eric Holder wouldn’t get the same reaction (though, from my mustache perspective, an easier person to be for Halloween).

    I know this has nothing to do with politics, but, I plan on going out as an emo chick. In response to what you said… I agree, a “sexy” judges costume… Hell to the No!
