Tossed - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is a picture of my younger sister – she was determined to win the elementary school Halloween Costume Contest that year. My mother came up with the brilliant idea to turn her into a salad for Halloween. Her hands were a fork and a spoon and her feet were also tomatoes to match her head. Of course, that year they decided to forgo the Halloween Costume Contest and she was just plain miserable all night, next to her friends that were dressed as princesses and ballerinas.”

    I am so impressed with the creativity of it all that the awkwardness hardly bothers me. You just don’t see homemade costumes like this much anymore… Well done mom!

    What a shame ! The costume is so neat. Guess it’s a part of life- disappointment. Hope she went on to win the next year.
