#Qwearhalloween Contest: Vote on Top 5! (2015)

We had so many submissions to our halloween costume contest and it was REALLY hard to narrow it down. (Like, really hard.) But eventually in life, one must make decisions.

Using a complex algorithm, I've managed to narrow down our judges' choices. Time for the public to decide on our winner! The winner receives special recognition and some goodies from Equal Period.

*Note from costume wearer, Molly, on cultural appropriation vs. cultural expression: “I was born in India but adopted as a baby. I’ve been getting more in touch with my culture and for a Queer Bollywood themed Halloween party to celebrate our culture, I decided to pay honor to the great Ganesh, remover of obstacles. I spent 5 days making the costume with by friend using plaster of paris and love. Hindu gods are sometimes thrown festivals to celebrate them so no I don’t think it’s cultural appropriative given I made it.”
