It’s a resource guide directing you to all kinds of women from across the globe and throughout history who would make fantastic and unique Halloween costumes that will cause a stir.  They tell you about the woman and then give you quick and easy ways to collect the pieces you need for the costume.

Searching the site is simple, too, because all of their costumes are divided up into four fantastic categories.

Notable Women: This section is dedicated to women who made an impact on the world – for better or (as in the case of female ax murderer Lizzie Borden) for worse.  Imagine rocking it out as Joan of Arc or scientific visionary Ada Lovelace.

Queens: Almost every gal has thought about being queen for the day, so why not do it on Halloween by being a real-life queen? Make a statement with dressing up as African queen Nzinga; Jezebel, Queen of Israel; or the famous Queen Victoria.
