Being a natural with a unique cut can seem limiting to your costume options. If you have a speciality cut like a tapered fade with a spunky personality, Grace Jones is for you. Pull out your best thigh high leather boots, larger than life attitude, and be ready to serve nothing but FIERCEness. And bonus, if your male bestie wants to tag along, he can be Dolph Lundgren.

Um...Black Widow? Come on, Iron Man two is even recent. This list wasn't actually very good.
WHAT!!?? Where's Magenta?!
I'm being little dead riding hood: cute brown curly pigtails, but the red cloak is slashed and dirty, empty basket, and fake blood & slashes on face & arms. Blonde curlies could do this to goldilocks-- who didn't quite outrun the bears!
