The folks at PETA have built whole campaigns around sexy individuals dressed as animals and protesting the wearing of fur, as this photo from Denver Westword shows.
Of course, the costumes don’t have to be skimpy to make a point. Just about any animal costume accompanied by an anti-fur sign would do the trick.
6. Sexy Vagina
If you’d rather riff on the “sexy” and often sexist Halloween culture, check out the satirical costume line that occasional Daily Show correspondent Kristen Schaal introduced to Jon Stewart. Her big showpiece was a costume that is next logical progression in objectification: a sexy vagina.
Better yet, the same vagina costume can be used to advocate for women’s health and reproductive rights. In fact, you can go on eBay to bid for the actual costume featured on the show.
7. Oil Spill
It’s Halloween tradition to drench yourself in fake blood, but a real activist family will coat themselves in fake oil instead. Ghosts and goblins won’t scare people as much as the threat of another oil spill might.
