    00f9c4c8 6bd4 461d 8906 8b58ebfc6cc8
  2. Halloween 1994: Ballerina
    Apparently I was very infatuated with my mother's childhood dance recital costume.

    E90b09a5 8af3 438d a8b9 5df9d6f89556

    E420665e c7e5 424a a1f8 f7025b94ec8f
    For the record, I am still upset by my mother's yearly failure to buy me nude turtle necks for Halloween (October 31 is practically winter in Syracuse, so layers are necessary). Those patterns totally wrecked my cosplay game, but she always insisted it wasn't a big deal!
  6. Purim 5757: Queen Esther
  7. Halloween 1997: Meg from 'Hercules'
    Little Bro was Herc.
  8. Purim 5758: Queen Esther
  9. Halloween 1998: Rose from 'Titanic'
    My Heart of the Ocean Necklace was actually a Polly Pocket set.
  10. Purim 5759: Queen Esther
  11. Halloween 1999: What I actually was is embarrassing, so we'll just say Biker Girl.
  12. Purim 5760: Queen Esther
  13. Halloween 2000: Jamie Lloyd from 'Halloween 4/5'. I was a weird kid.

    Hehe, get it?
  15. Halloween 2001: Regan from 'The Exorcist'
  16. Purim 5762: Jewish Dancing Queen
    It was ABBA's hit single meets Megillat Esther.
  17. Halloween 2002: Little Red Ridinghood
    6fa079b9 28b6 4a66 a2dc 341787144901
    The 2002 "Into the Woods" Broadway revival Little Red, which I was very specific about.
  18. Purim 5763: Mexican Man
    This was before people realized cultural appropriation was offensive.
  19. Halloween 2004: Elphaba from 'Wicked'
  20. Halloween 2005: Myself. But like, a Halloween version.
  21. Halloween 2006: Duck
    3ba44323 def2 4c77 85ce 438ad07c0458
    As in "the chick and the duck" from 'Friends'.

  24. Purim 5769: Princess Leia
    3477411c 9116 4ebf b82c 6da4c29f71a5
    I wanted to be Princess Leia for several years in a row during childhood, but I always had to settle because there were never any child-size costumes. Now they're everywhere.
  25. Halloween 2009: I bought a pair of pink polka-dotted pajamas at the Salvation Army and put my hair in pigtails. It was for a children's parade in Washington Square Park so it worked.

    3af76ebe 395c 474c a921 188cbf820ab8
  28. Halloween 2011: Annie Hall, but I've always said I can do this again and better.
    4b141827 ef10 4f59 81bf 21510a15be67
  29. Purim 5772: A tiny crown to signify Queen Esther. A few goyim wished me Happy Birthday and I felt bad.
