Dorothy -- aka my funny mama

My mom dressed as Dorothy last year and I’ve been saving this priceless photo since. She spent days working on this costume, including painting and glittering ruby red slippers. The stuffed Toto — which is white because our family dog is white — came from her collection of stuffed animals. Don’t ask.
A couple of things:
1. Obviously my mom is a pretty good sport, and;
2. The tendency to go overboard with any opportunity to dress to a theme is apparently genetic.

Happy Halloween!

  1. OK, this is really weird. I was JUST thinking this morning about asking you to help me with a costume for our Tour de Tempe in the fall. Dorthy! Weird, right? I’ve got a funny idea that involves that for Ryan and me. I’ll have to tell you about it….

  2. Priceless! If I spent all that time and effort on a costume that ended up looking that great, you know I’d be wearing it for the next several Halloweens!

  3. I think it’s fabulous and she looks great! Those genes must be spreading about as witnessed by my costumes photo I posted today.
