Costumes and Lesbians
I’m helping my friend AM with her daughter’s Halloween costume. She wants to be The Flash, but she’s only 2 and still wants to be a princess at the same time. So, thanks to some Pinterest searching, we found some inspiration that made her happy.
We came up with a plan and went out together this weekend to get materials for it. We grabbed a shirt to butcher, elastic, rhinestones, ribbon, and a boat load of glittered tulle. While we’re walking around, a gentleman who appeared to be in his late 60’s walks past and starts talking to the 2-year-old. He asks her what she’s going to be for Halloween, then asks “are you being a good girl for your mommies?”
Yep, he totally thought we were a couple. Both of us started to open our mouths, but then decided it really wasn’t worth the trouble of correcting it. Maybe if he had been a jerk about it I would have corrected it before laying into him, but since he seemed so accepting of the idea that we might actually be a couple I didn’t want to ruin the moment. We got a good laugh out of it though.
Probably didn’t help we were sort of dressed the same. Score one for slob clothes!
I showed her how to make a tutu (fun fact: never actually done it before, but if you Google something enough you can sound like an expert), gave her a few other tips, and left her to her own devices. I’ve seen a few work-in-progress pictures, and so far it’s looking pretty good! I’ll be excited to see the finished product.
Are you making any costumes this year? What has been your favorite from a past year?
