A Fabby Halloween: A Stepford Wife

I know it's a demeaning classic, but have you ever read The Stepford Wives? The book is pretty good and a very quick read. I read it after I saw the remake movie version with Nicole Kidman, then I rented the '75 original. I don't know why I was so fascinated. Probably the same reason I love femme bots. The only time I would encourage dressing up like a blond robot is Halloween. So don't take it too seriously, it is kind of fun to dress up like Barbie. The nice thing about being a Stepford is that it isn't a slutty costume. Remember, the men of Stepford didn't want their wives flaunting their goods all over town, just in their own sick private worlds.

This is a good "Thrift Store" costume. You're guaranteed to be able to find something that'd work for this at a good thrift shop. I put together my kickass gypsy outfit from mine, and I'm reworking it into "Pirate Wench" this year.
