Adorbs! DD will be almost 6 months at Halloween and she will be an owl.

Our DD (9) wants to go out as Uncle Jesse from Full House, this year. She’s always been a fan of M-K and A, and has recently watched every season of Full House on DVD for like, the 4th time, lol. She also recently got her hair lopped off (and sent it away to the Canadian version of Locks of Love–makes Mama so proud!), so she thinks the semi-mullet will be super awesome to do…

Now we have to find her a cheap leather coat at a thrift shop.

I think we’re going to dress DD up as a pumpkin.  It’s her first Halloween!

@Ninteenthchance:  It’s funny you should say that, because she has outdone the whole princess thing in years past… age 3 was Cinderella, age 4 was Sleeping Beauty, age 5 was Snow White, age 6 we re-used Snow White, age 7 she was a fairy (still girly!), and age 8 she was Alice in Wonderland… I think it’s the haircut that has changed things, lol.

@Ninteenthchance:  Oh, that she is! I don’t know if it has anything to do with maturing, as well, but she’s become a lot more interested in how she looks, lately. She’s taken an interest in jewellery, she’s wearing headbands and fixing her hair constantly, etc… is quite funny, actually. I love how her personality is developing.

I love little ones in costumes! My son is 8 months old and will be the Pillsbury Dough Boy.

@Ninteenthchance:  Only commenting on the costume choice for your girl because I’ve had some really difficult conversations with first nations folk about how they feel about ‘native american’ being a costume. I’m sure your kid would look super-cute no matter what.

I wore some pretty questionable outfits as a kid (gypsy and geisha). I’m pretty embarassed by it now and that my Mum thought it was okay.

This will probably cue up some flack here — but it’s something probably worth thinking on anyways.

@canadablue:  Yep. I couldn’t think of a kind way to bring up cultural appropriation…

@canadablue:  SO glad you said this. I really wanted to, but I didn’t want to be yelled at for being “overly sensitive”. Thanks for being braver than me. Sorry OP, but the costume kind of screams cultural appropriation. I would stick to the cat costume.

@kittyface:  Me either…

My son likes to be scary. He refuses to be cute for halloween, and I love that! lol this year he’s going to be a zombie. I always do his make up so we are gonna go all out this year. here’s his photo from last year.

He was a “psycho” lol
