DRESS-UP COSTUME IDEAS: AFRICAN EDITION (or ‘if I were to dress up for Halloween, here’s what I’d consider):

This year, we’ve already seen all sorts of offensive Halloween costumes advertised, most notably Ebola hazmat suits. It seems this annual occasion cannot occur without people selling or creating distasteful and offensive costumes.

If you therefore want to avoid engaging in horribly racist and dehumanizing stereotypes and rather channel more contemporary and personalized facets of African cultures, well, without further ado, I present to you a list of (some of) my top ten costume ideas for any dress-up occasion.

Here they are listed in order:

  1. Blackberry Babes
  2. Touki Bouki
  3. Les Sapeurs Congolais
  4. Fela and the Kalakuta Queens
  5. Leleti Khumal and the students of Sarafina
  6. Mafikizolo channeling Sophiatown fashions
  7. Cameroon’s infamously stylish first lady Chantal Biya
  8. The patriotic green-haired Nigerian footballer Taribo West
  9. Samuel Fosso, La Femme Américaine Libérée des Années 70”
  10. Afronauts

Honorary mentions: Inspector Tahar and his assistant, Koffi Olomide.

N.B. NO BLACK/BROWN-FACE IS REQUIRED FOR ANY OF THESE ‘COSTUMES’. If people don’t ‘get it’, well, educate them - it’d make for a great conversation starter too, right?

"I always thought that by the time I put out a third album, I would want to come back to natural hair and natural makeup," she told me. "I thought, I will shock the world again and just be more toned down. I thought that would be more shocking than to keep on doing exactly what they had already seen."

But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?

- Mark Twain

This is honestly my favorite quote. It’s changed how I look at life and religion.
