Once upon a time I had a baby.
Her name was Ruth and she had wild and wonderful untamed golden locks.
So I decided that she must be Goldilocks for Halloween and I set off to make her a costume.
But I wasn’t sure what Goldilocks should look like…
And this was the best costume I could come up with:
And although I loved her in the dress and pinafore I made
(and how could I not…just look at those knees poking out between her dress and socks…)
I wasn’t sure if she looked like Goldilocks from either the front
or the back:
But in the end I decided that successfully replicated costume or not I’d still think she looked adorable and she’d still end up with a sack full of candy…
And we’d all live happily ever after.
Ok that wasn’t really the end…well, kind of, but not really…
I know this costume isn’t super crazy, fancy, or over the top but I like it. Plus it’s either this or the costume my husband came up with for her which is a Mr. T costume. And while that costume is HILARIOUS…I’m laughing just thinking about it…I want to dress her up in something that will show off all her chubby little girl goodness. (And I don’t want to her my husband say “I pity the fool” a million times on Halloween.)
Ruth really is going to be Goldilocks and wear this costume. And I’ll make her a trick-or-treat bag with 3 bears on it to match. Other than that I don’t really know how to make her any more Golidlocky.
