I chatted with my friend Joy last night via facebook, we talked about what characters will her daughter, Alexis, and Daisy´s son, Justin, portray for this year´s Halloween party in school. Things aren´t final yet but Joy thinks that Alexis will probably be Cleopatra. I suggested that Justin be Julius Caesar, and another friend´s son be Anthony.
Well, that probably will take a lot of pushing on Joy´s part given that Alexis isn´t into girly-pretty things, she prefers masculine characters. That led me us to recall what the kids have worn in the previous Halloweens.
Alexis & Justin as Wilma & Fred
In 2011, Justin and Alexis were in K1. For that year´s Halloween, they portrayed Wilma and Fred characters. Alexis wore a light pink two piece with zigzag hems on the skirt. Justin wore a leopard sleeveless tunic with zigzag hem accompanied with that signature teal scarf. I find the kiddos really cute.
Justin & Alexis as Fireman & Pirate
In 2012 the kids were already a year wiser – could sing, write, count, read, and do Maths – and they already knew what character they´d like to be. Justin became a fireman (he´s probably inspired by his favorite toy, a fire truck), while Alexis opted for a pirate ´cause you know, she perhaps wanted to kick b*lls. I mean look at her, she really portrayed the character. She´s one tough pirate!
Alexis, Justin, and their friends
I intentionally resized the photos small and the faces blurred because I haven´t got the friends´ parents permission to publish their children´s faces here on my site, but at least you can get a glimpse of these kids Halloween party attire.
I don´t know about you but I´m not comfortable with kids wearing scary outfits, I feel like it´s too much for the youngs. Won´t they get nightmares at night? But then … who am I to speak? I don´t even, and have never participated in Halloween affairs since childhood due to religious reasons. That makes me worried, if I don´t let my child participate in such school activity, will she/he be ostracized? I´ll cross the bridge when it comes.
But I think that Justin and Alexis´ Halloween outfits are creative and fun. Let´s see how they´d look next month.
If you too have a cute Halloween photo of your child wearing an outfit that you´d like to share to us, email me.
