If you’re not into DIY costumes, it can be hard to find good ones to fit. The packaged ones in those pop-up Halloween shops are usually “one size fits all,” where “all” is smaller than a size 6. Even when they have “plus size” options, they’re rarely larger than a 12.
When I was in the third grade, our school hosted a Famous Pioneer Day. I’m guessing on the name; I actually don’t remember the name of that costume-themed day, but nonetheless it was a day to recognize the early American (white) pioneers. I was extremely motivated in dressing up because of the costume contest. I’m not sure what convinced her (either my begging or crying or a combination of both), but my mom actually went to a novelty costume store and rented out a costume that looked like it came out of 1700s-era America. The costume was a literal adaptation of what you would see on those American Girl book series. Read More Pioneers, Playing Dress-Up, And Katy Perry
