Last year she was a bee:
So what about this year? Her current favorite characters are Dora and Abby Cadabby. I find costumes for each, but they have problems. The Dora one - let's be honest it's a pink shirt and orange shorts, with a wig. But we live in New England and it tends to be freezing on Halloween, and I really don't think she will wear the wig or the back pack.
And the Abby Caddabby one - but again, this is New England where it's cold on October 31st. I guess I could get a size bigger than she needs and put a white long sleeved shirt and leggings underneath it... but that will just look stupid.
And I am back to square one with no ideas. I like the ones at Old Navy because they seem to geared towards those of us that live north of the equator... http://www4.assets-gap.com/Asset_Archive/ONWeb/Assets/Product/858/858497/quick/on858497-00qlv01.jpg sorry, Blogger won't let me upload the picture for some reason.. It's times like these that I wish I let her watch more TV to have more options for Halloween... she doesn't even know what a princess is- though I made her watch the royal wedding, natch. Not that Kate is technically a princess, but insignificant details bore me
And then I need to find a costume for myself since we are going to a party this year. I know that most women just use Halloween as an excuse to be supper slutty, but that's not really how I roll (though I was Britney pre-K-fed my junior year in college complete with my sidekicks Xtina and Eminem - this is one of the rare times I wish digital cameras had been popular when I was in college!), and no one really wants to see a slutty 30 year old suburban mom. That's lame. I need a non-lame, non-slutty, easy to assemble costume. A little help?
