For my Throwback Thursday post, I am going to reflect on my daughter’s Halloween costumes over the years. We’ll start with a Throwback all the way to mid-October. Overall, there are 13 years of Halloween, 13 costumes (she repeated her 2008 costume in 2009, but had two costumes in 2015).
Last year my daughter was an archer. Finding an appropriate costume was a bit tricky since she sized up into the women’s costumes.
In 2016 my daughter was Captain Phasma from Star Wars – The Force Awakens.
She had two costumes in 2015. Her initial costume was a Minecraft Enderman which she wore to Greenfield Village and her school party. However, the head was more cumbersome than she expected. She found it difficult to see since the head shifted easily. With a rainy trick or treat forecast, we decided to convert to a black cat. I had bought reflective stickers for her all black Enderman costume that worked perfectly as a grey tail and chest patch.
My daughter loved the American Girl Molly since they look alike. In Kindergarten, she saved to buy the doll for herself over the summer. The next fall she decided to replicate the costume that Molly wore in the stories.
I loved my daughter’s take on her Rapunzel costume. It evolved throughout the month of October. She started by wearing the hair braid, but then decided it was too heavy. Then, since she has brown hair, decided she was Rapunzel from the end of the movie once her hair is cut. Finally, she added the mask that she made at Michaels. So, she decided there was a deleted-scene from the end of Tangled where Rapunzel attends a masquerade ball.
She had wanted to be Darby in 2008, but I talked her out of it saying no one would recognize her. However, she didn’t give up on the idea and 2 years later was Darby.
Yes, she was Tinkerbell 2 years in a row. No, I didn’t make her repeat the costume.
At almost 10 months old, she loved her first Halloween. She got to go to the library party and trick or treat Downtown. She was able to walk (with a little help) to do her trick or treating.
