Costume Ideas #10: Punk... eh. Ish. Ballerina

Most little girls go through a phase where they want to be a ballerina. This was always especially evident at Halloween, when you would always have at least one girl in a puffy pink tutu and a slicked back bun.

But, over time, that fades, and girls become teenagers or 20-somethings who want to wear something sexy and fun.

Unless, of course, you don't want to be yet another slutty Snow White. In which case, have I got a dress for you ...

Maybe it's just me, but this dress, paired with some Doc Martins, would probably work as a punk ballerina dress.

As a dress itself - independent of the costume aspect - I really don't like it. I hate the proportions. In theory, the skirt works, but it manages to be too puffy coming out of the t-shirt. And also, it's attached to a t-shirt. A t-shirt. The sleeves are too long, the waist is too low, and it's a t-shirt. A weird, misshapen t-shirt.

Oh, and it comes in Fleshy Pink. And you know how I feel about Fleshy Pink.

  1. I walked around with my hair slicked back in a bun all the time. Also, if I were going as a punk ballerina, i'd still want some cleavage.
