Wish Wed ....Costume


'I wish' .... I was six years old and going trick or treating, and my costume would be this cute sassy ladybug!


photo found here
If I could be as cute as this little girl and as happy as she is with a missing front tooth, then count me in ;)

I would wear pretty inexpensive costumes from Party City or ones from around the house, and the one above reminds me of a dance recital outfit I wish I wore!  I am not a huge fan of Halloween, don't really understand the love for candy corn, but I am sure I loved both as a kid.  I do vividly remember sorting through my candy, picking out my favorites, giving Dad my Almond Joy, and sadly throwing out that candies that were partially opened (parents rule!) - man!

**It just popped in my head that I was a flight attendant one year in my early to mid teens and wore my moms uniform top -- hahahah!!!!  What's your worst costume??  I finally found a portion of my costume yesterday, thanks to Tessa and Christie, and hope to get the rest together asap for our Friday and Saturday night shin-dig.

I not sure if it would count as my 'worst' costume, but for THREE years straight in middle school I dressed up as a Hippie with my friends-- yes, we were still trick or treating at that age ;-) I had these jeans that my mom had sewn huge flowers on and added material to make them super flair. I miraculously fit in to them each year, but I grew taller during those years, so they were probably SO high-water! Hah!

I hit publish before I was ready. I think the baby costumes are the cutest!

Cee said...

The lady bug is adorable!

My worst costume was probably during middle school/high school. I would just be a "rock star" and cover myself in glitter.

YOu can totally pull of the ladybug costume in "grown up" sizes!

Carol said...

That's adorable. I wanna be six again!! I had a bumblebee costume that kinda like that ladybug one. I probably didn't look as cute in it, but oh well. :)

GG said...

I saw this little ladybug for babies and considered it for my daughter! It's precious!

Hmm, my worst costume? By far... In third or fourth grade four friends and I went as The Spice Girls. I was Geri/Ginger Spice. Embarassing. =/

MCW said...

My worst costume was a hippie. It was during my awkward middle schools stage...and the pictures still SCARE me.

Kelly said...

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I was a lady bug when i was younger...and a bee once. I think my mom picked those costumes for me!
Super cute. You could make this into an adult costume! :)

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

I can honestly say I don't remember a horrible costume ever in my history of Halloweens. My mother always made me amazing costumes from scratch - she was so great at this and full of imagination!!! I hope one day I can do the same for my children.

I think I've had horrible bridesmaid dresses but never a bad costume ;)

Annie said...

the ladybug is too cute ;)
i don't share a love for candy corn either.
my worst costume was probably a california raisen, my friends and i dressed as them in middle school. we wore giant garbage bags and stuffed them with newspaper. haha!!

Kassie said...

That is seriously adorable! It looks like a dance costume I had as well, which makes it all the better. :)

The Holmes said...

One year I went as a bundle of grapes! That's right, GRAPES! We blew up green balloons and strung them together and then wrapped them around our bodies. We wore brown leotards and tights underneath! It wasn't my favorite as a kid but looking back on it now - the costumes were pretty cute!

Summer @ B is for Brown said...

Tracy-Girl said...

LOVE the ladybug... this is adorable!! :) I think my worst costume was probably the one I am wearing this year because it is sooo boring. I think I am going to be a witch!

Bethany said...

The lady bug is really cute! My worst costume?? I went as Britney Spears in high school...wearing my high school uniform

Allison said...

Yeah, I think the ladybug is super cute! I'm not sure I've ever had a good costume. All of my costumes were pretty stupid! Especially the playboy bunny!

OceanDreams said...

How adorable! I wish I was a little girl again so I could experience being so cute...now I feel like we are only stuck in the sexy category. Bleh!

OceanDreams said...

Oh and as for the worst costume...not sure but I remember dressing up as a farmer of some sort and I was really itchy! Ha ha!

Nat said...

That is so cute! One year I went at Tweety bird- my grandma made the costume is was hysterical!

Heather said...

Cute costume!! I would love to be a kid again on Halloween. I look forward to when we have kids and can take them to get all the candy!

Alicia said...

That ladybug costume is so cute! Exactly what any little girl would want to wear! It has a tutu...what more could you ask for!?!

Heather said...

Too cute!!

Shanny said...

The ladybug costume is adorable!!!!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Aw, that lady bug costume would be too cute! I think my worst halloween costume would had to have been when I was barbie. The costume came with one of those plastic masks with the hard hair (it was the 80's ok!) and it made my face sweat sooo bad!

short southern momma said...
