Well, Halloween is officially one week from today, y’all, and although I didn’t make the time to create multiple Halloween costumes for the blog like I did last year, I DID manage to shop my own closet over the weekend and turned my college graduation robe into a bad-ass Ruth Bader Ginsburg costume!!
Now, please DO realize that I cannot take FULL credit for this costume idea as Kate McKinnon was my REAL inspiration with her recent satire impersonations of Ruth on SNL’s Weekend Update [if you haven’t seen them – I highly recommend for a hilarious time] making this is a matrix Halloween of sorts . . .
Jenna playing Kate playing Ruth AND is honestly the easiest costume I’ve ever come up with. Maybe even the funnest?! I had so much fun acting out my own versions of a Gins-BURN! Haha. You can check out my Instastories for that little gem of a laugh 😉 I honestly could have danced all day in this getup!
“I try to teach through my opinions, through my speeches, how wrong it is to judge people on the basis of what they look like, color of their skin, whether they’re men or women.” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg
This just seemed like the right time for this costume; a time when a majority of females have been WOKE and greatly dissent with opinion of our current Commander in Diapers. Plus, what better way to pay tribute to our booming FEMINIST movement than to Halloween 2017 like one bad-ass lady?!
