The best thing about post-Halloween Twitter this year is the wealth of Ghostbusters costumes. And the best thing about these costumes: they’re being worn by girls! Girls, specifically, who are having the times of their lives idolizing hilarious, complex, professional women who are good at their jobs and once escaped from a hell vortex full of poltergeists and demons. Girls who get to be part of a global fandom. Girls who look seriously very cool, and I’m a little afraid of them.
If anybody’s childhood was “ruined” by Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, they must have stayed home.
Here are some of the chillest modern women I’ve ever seen. I’m so happy they had the perfect Halloween.
