Lena Dunham Plans To Dress As A Planned Parenthood Doctor For Halloween

"I’m going as something newsy, sexy, and cool."

After 29 years of "failing" at Halloween, Lena Dunham has come up with a pretty great costume.

In Tuesday's Lenny Letter, the "Girls" star recalls All Hallows' Eve past, in which she costumed herself as a "fancy lady," Medusa, a leopard, a mermaid, and even Louis C.K.

Some of these costumes turned out better than others, but this year, Dunham has a very specific and noble costume in mind.

After detailing all her Halloween "failure," Dunham writes, "I want to be accepted and to WIN BIG! And this year, I think I may have finally nailed it. I’m going as something newsy, sexy, and cool: a Planned Parenthood doctor!"

The 29-year-old is a vocal advocate for Planned Parenthood. In October, she showed up at the Planned Parenthood Champion of Choice event in a sweater with an image of the female reproductive system, which she ended up "spontaneously" auctioning off for $4,000 in support of the organization.

Similarly, in a 2014 interview with Vanity Fair, Dunham said she considers the men and women who work at Planned Parenthood centers across the country to be her real-life heroes.
