My Favorite Costumes Growing Up

Halloween costumes were never bought in my house. My mother, who is fantastically creative and resourceful, always designed the costumes of my dreams when I was a kid.

Some selected favorites include: a unicorn, a rabbit, a cat, Scarlett O'Hara and Little Red Riding Hood. It also helps that she's a makeup artist and phenomenal seamstress as well!

I am a woman of duplicity, and it's evident in my childhood. As you can see, one year I just had to be Snow White ("with a dress just like the one from the movie, Mom!!").

But the very next year, I wanted to see what it felt like to play the a villain, so I chose the witch. But if you look carefully, you'll notice I was still a prim and proper witch with white tights and black patent leather Mary Jane's.

Good girl, bad girl. I love them both. They each have their unique merits and talents, and to confine myself to one archetype would be impossible.
