I started creating costumes when I participated in a costume contest at work. As a Silent Hill 2 fan, I looked up nurse costumes. While looking at store-bought costume options, I was pretty unhappy with the almost universal "Slutty" or "Sexy" theme across female costumes. I have nothing against sexy things existing, but what bothered me was the lack of variety and NON-slutty options for women. After finishing my nurse costume, I started making entirely new costumes to challenge what being a female during Halloween could look like. I wanted to stray so far from the skimpy sexy silhouette that the next costume choices went beyond gender or species entirely. I went Zerg!
