Nothing spooky here, move along

October 27th, 2011

This year, I let the girls pick out their costumes. The result was pink and glittery and blond and purple and cheaply made.  But they love it so I’m not complaining too much. Tessa picked out her butterfly costume because she is currently obsessed with butterflies that land all over a bush in our yard.  Sabrina said for months that she wanted to be Rapunzel and never wavered. It had to have the wig. I had mixed feelings about my beautiful Guatemalan daughter wanting a long, blonde wig. But I decided to not a make a big deal out of it.

Just as well I didn’t over react.  She ended up not wanting to wear it because it itched and the wind kept blowing it in her face so she removed it right after photos. (Photos by Crystal.) She did think it was hilarious that everyone at the party did a double take and said they didn’t recognize her.

Tessa was mad that we weren’t going to the playground (the party was at a picnic pavilion in the park) but I knew the costumes wouldn’t survive hard play. She protested loudly and often. But at least she looked cute while doing it.

    Oh they are SOOOO cute!!!! Hannah is also Rapunzel and had to have a blonde wig – I thought it was cute and people do take a double look when they are used to the gorgeous black hair 🙂 Unfortunately that wig hair is atrocious and tangles up like crazy (no pun intended!). I ended up fixing the wig hair into a long braid – much more manageable and we added some flowers to the braid to look “authentic Rapunzel”…lol. MUCH easier to wear!

    SO SO CUTE!!!
    ps. You must be having some warm weather there!

    My daughter was Hannah Montana a couple of years ago and had the long blonde wig as well. I had to laugh each time I saw her in it. She looked so different! A couple of neighbors had to ask who she was!
    Very cute pictures!

  4. Laura Says:

    Blonde wig? At least you get the idea of what she’ll look like, should she decide to go blonde in the future 🙂 Your girls are too cute.

  5. jane Says:

    We have the da#$ wig, too. It sheds all over the house and she looks like a mini Beyonce in it!
    Of course she lost interest in that $12 investment about 2 hours after we got home with it. I braided it and hung it on the rack with the 8 princess dresses that we had.to.have.or.I.will.not.continue.to.breathe.Mama.
    I’m for allowing free choice in costumes, too. Which is why my girly girl was a dinosaur one year. And will be Jasmine this year.

  6. Heather Says:

    They both look awesome!!! Yeah, wigs are overrated. Our daughter loves to try them on, but they can’t stand to leave it on because of how itchy it is.

  7. Shannon Says:

    Your girls were adorable! Emily wants one of those Rapunzel wigs too, but like you I hestitate to buy it for her. I’m sure I’ll cave eventually! LOL

  8. Dana Says:

    Tessa is an adorable butterfly and Sabrina a beautiful Rapunzel. I totally get your concern about Sabrina and the blonde hair. Serena has recently been telling me she wants yellow hair because it’s prettier. Ugh, worry worry worry me.
    Serena was pretty set on Rapunzel for a couple months (I really was hoping to gently change her mind because of the wig for all the reasons you mention along with tangling, itching and most likely not wearing it at all) and then it just happened on it’s own. She saw a Jasmin costume and that was it. I dread the day she wants to change from these sweet costumes to those slutty ones they are making for tweens. That will be a problem. Right now Halloween is such a fun time for us all when they are young. Your girls are really so beautiful! Love to see updates on them!

    In the past, you’d see musicians wearing ridiculously high collars and oversized clothing.
    They could be going out shopping or hanging
    out with their friends. Too bad it is watching them go
    down as some of the worst fashion designers in history.

    They usually get bewildered by the endless choice of cute and pretty tiny dresses.
    So if you want to look totally hot and classy Kim Kardashian sunglasses are perfect for you.
    It was a superb dress and pure Galliano – bias-cut, nostalgic and wonderful – a tribute to him.

    A sequined short shift dress up would be good for the gatherings this Yuletide.
    Fourteen year old girls everywhere will face fierce competition from “wannabe mannies,” who
    once preferred mowing lawns to watching the neighbor’s three-year-old twins.
    In short celebrities have a great impact on the lifestyle of human beings.
    If you go simple with the dress, you can go a little crazier on
    the boots but if you have a dress with a lot going on
    in the pattern, try selecting a plainer designed boot.
    Sometimes it could be the symptom of a basic health problem.
    Although they are very unforgiving if worn on a less
    than a perfect body, Bandage dresses enjoy a steady following among celebrities.
    Designer sarees are highly adorable and meet perfection every time.

    With an electric cigarette, even if you smoke the whole day around your baby, there is no fear that he won’t
    be able to breathe. The e-liquid contains the great flavor of the
    cigarettes. Where this privilege is challenged is when the harmful effects produced by smoking cigarettes exceed damaging the individual and transform in to a public health issue.

  32. Natural Brain Enhancers Says:

    Antioxidants breakdown free radicals annd hence protect brain tissues.
    One more rationality why B6 is important is because iit leads to the creation of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serrotonin and norepinephrine in your brain.
    A deficiency of these vitamins can appear to be depression, anxiety, chronic
    fatigue, anger, loss oof sex drive, and more.
