the actual easiest Halloween costume: Rosie the Riveter

I'm sure you've seen your fair share of Rosie the Riveters this Halloween, and I just want to be clear that I (and I alone) started this trend last year.

And then this year, because I am actually the laziest human you will ever meet, I pulled the red bandanas out of the closet, and of course we had new chambray shirts for fall 2016 because what are we, farmers? (it probably makes more sense for a farmer to have a chambray shirt than it does a toddler, tbh)

And just like that, out of sheer laziness and a smattering of nasty woman pride, a tradition was born. Any guess as to how long she'll let me keep this up?

Here's a how-to: buy a red bandana (mine are from Target). Buy a chambray shirt (from literally anywhere.) Find the largest image of Rosie the Riveter you can (this will do) print it, cut it, and tape it to a popsicle stick. 

Bonus to this costume: in the off-season, Rue's room gets a feminist robot:
