Discussion Thread: Non-Appropriative Halloween Costumes

As I've been obliged to write for many Halloweens now: Other people's identities are not your costume.

This continues to be a difficult concept for many people to grasp!

Here, however, is a thread to share ideas for non-appropriative costumes. Yay!

What are costumes you have worn yourself, are planning to wear, have seen other people wearing, etc. that don't borrow someone else's identity?

The last time I attended a Halloween party, I went as Grumpy Cat! A hat with cat ears (procured from Etsy), some face make-up to recreate her markings, and a white t-shirt onto which I'd spray-painted NO. Easy and fun.
