Throwback Thursday: Halloween through the Years

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 Sunday – 9 years of Halloween, 8 costumes (she chose to repeat her 2008 costume in 2009).

I loved the 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.

Tinkerbell again – at Preschool Halloween Party

Yes, she was Tinkerbell 2 years in a row. No, I didn’t make her repeat the costume.

Minnie Mouse

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.
