Dressing up is the best! If I were Queen of the world, every day would be dress-up day.
  1. Frankenstein (I think?)

    My brother Russ was "a bum" every year. Note the scruff on his face and patches on his pants.
  2. Witch --almost every Halloween kindergarten through 7th grade and multiple times as an adult (one time scaring the bejeezus out of my daughter at her class party – she didn't recognize me).
  3. Raggedy Ann

    At some Christmas play. I was playing the role of "doll."
  4. Aurelia
    8ddc3854 f1f5 4744 8b95 e670d15ce53a
    In this scene, Note boy pulling my hair. Note me expressing my displeasure. I am playing an important dramatic role: Aurelia Read Spencer Rogers (1834 – 1922), founder of Primary, the children's organization and official auxiliary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Rogers was also a women's rights activist and suffragette.. Women's rights activist! Suffragette!
  5. Mary (mother of Jesus)
    For "living nativities."

    My brother and I played cowboys and Indians a lot

    1ddaee1d f392 4909 b40c ed8801a6e672
    One friend was a mime, another was a prisoner, no idea what I was trying to be (new wave weirdo?). You might think I was on drugs but this was at BYU, before i polluted the temple of my body.
  12. Hippie
    Bafee61d 6b5c 4617 8b03 f82d19c131c7
    Photo circa 1989 (the bangs were big). Note dashiki, headband, tambourine, moccasins, and customized jeans from Goodwill (with ridiculous sayings, colorful symbols, and patches!). For never having even tasted alcohol at this point, I sure was a wannabe!

    351eb726 f63f 42fa ac80 ee7fdd701cb1
    Had a superplush velvet hat. Wore it to read Dr. Seuss. The hat is gone, the me is sad. I loved you tall, red-and-white striped hat.
  16. Ms. Marcellus Wallace
    A54adf02 7eb6 4d95 a8e8 46c01d5a0888
    Note the hypodermic needle stuck in my chest, the suspiciously white nose, the black leather pants, the hairstyle. Boom!

    6965ee97 5c75 431f 971c a758203cf471
    My kiddo picked this out for me. I never wore it in public. I don't do slutty costumes. Maybe I should.
