Throwback Thursday: Raggedy Ann Halloween

Throwback Thursday: Raggedy Ann Halloween

 

 

 

When I was a kiddo my mom made most of my costumes. She was very good at it and most of the time very creative. However, I wasn't happy. I always complained because I wanted a store bought one.  All my friends had the Woolworth's cheap plastic costumes, with even cheaper masks with that one piece of elastic that didn't even survive a walk down the street! Oh, and you couldn't breath when you were wearing it!

 

Anyhoo, when I was 4, I was Raggedy Ann. The photo to the right was taken at my grandmother's house. Gotta love the red yarn wig, the red stockings and the black maryjanes! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fast forward to the more recent past. I am once again Raggedy Ann with my 3 1/2 year old princess granddaughter. Hands down, one of my favorite Halloweens! Notice I have makeup this go around and the red and white striped socks like the REAL Raggedy Ann in the first photo. Once again, I've got the red yarn wig!

 

Happy Halloween!
