When growing up and Halloween came around, my sisters and I had to make our costumes, not buy. No way would my mother waste money on costumes to wear only once.
One summer, my friend and I were roaming the neighborhood and came across a yard sale. What caught my eye? A very beautiful blue dress with blue embroidery and yards of matching tulle for the underskirt. The price? Very affordable. I went home and cracked open my piggy bank and returned to the sale where I purchased the dress.
So Halloween comes around and I wore the dress. I truly felt like a princess.
Nowadays, I go as myself because I am married to a superhero. LOL. Yes, it's kinda cheating.
