Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and warm thoughts on my post yesterday. I really truly appreciate it.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to participate in the Spin Cycle with all that’s been going on, and didn’t want to miss it again. This week’s them is “Then and Now”, so since Halloween is just over a week away, I thought I’d look back on past Halloween costumes for Princess Nagger (even though I did it sometime last year, but it’s worth seeing again, especially the “Now” part):
Yes, I did indeed use the exact same costume 3 years in a row…I figured why not since she didn’t seem to mind, and since she’s always been petite so it fit her better each year – well, except the last year…that might have been pushing it just a smidge since it was a size 12-24 months.
For her Fourth Halloween (2006), she dressed up as Raven from Teen Titans. That was the only year I totally forgot to take a picture of her in her costume, but here’s the image from the package (I didn’t do the makeup on Princess Nagger, either):
Last year she originally wanted to go as the Tooth Fairy, but then changed her mind when she discovered her Forest Fairy costume in the guest room from a couple of years back. She decided she wanted to go as that again, since this time the costume fit much better than the first time around.
This year her final decision is to dress up as Soren from Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. The costume arrived Wednesday, and she was excited when she got home from school to try it on and pretend to be an owl. Later that evening, I was giggling when noticed she had fallen fast asleep on the couch with the costume still on. Of course I had to take a picture. I was surprised she didn’t stir even though the paparazzi flash happened 12 times.
I’ll take a picture of her all dressed up and not asleep sometime next week. But I thought this was a perfect representation of the “Now”.
Enjoy your weekend!
