Why This Couple Wears Vagina Costumes Around New York City

May 24, 2016

It’s not just to be provocative

Attention anyone already brainstorming politically charged Halloween costumes: A Brooklyn couple is selling giant vagina costumes for charity, according to Page Six—and they’ve taken to modeling the eye-catching outfits all over New York City.

The couple, who is part of the group Conceived in Brooklyn, says they’re using the costumes to raise awareness about reproductive health. $10 from the sale of each vagina costume will support the charity “50 Cents. Period,” which donates sanitary napkins to women and girls in India.

You can have your very own wearable vagina costume for $150. (If you’re ordering for Halloween, be sure to place your order by July 1—the costumes are all made by hand.)
