Halloweek--Our Little Red Riding Hood

Chloe wanted to be "a made up princess" for Halloween.  I wanted to not pay for a costume for Halloween.  When I found this "Red Riding Hood Princess" costume at a consignment store where I happened to have store credit, we both won. 

Jeff's Grandma Carol says you need some red in every picture.  Agreed.

Total cost of the costume: $2.00 (for the basket)


"Run like the wolf is chasing you!"  She's so good at taking direction.

I think even if she were wearing a potato sack, she would look like a princess to me.

"My what a pretty princess you have!"

She is very beautiful. I love that she looks genuinely panicked in the photo of her running from the wolf. Thespian, indeed!

Patti said...

The picture of Chloe in the big trees looks like a still from The Lord of the Rings. Fabulous costume! Beautiful girl!

She looks beautiful - really, really beautiful! And I LOVE your photography, Melissa - so unique and interesting to look at. You're my hero.

Adorable. Am now jealous. Want this costume for myself. (Have secretly always wanted a red cape but didn't want to be all Ren Fair. You know? So I just settled for a red coat.)
