second generation tiger...

i know, i's a leopard.

but when i was little, i called it a tiger.

my mom made me this costume when a was a little girl...and it was my FAVORITE!!! i don't know how many years in a row i wore it, but my mom eventually had to cut the feet off the bottom so i could still wear it.

so, when this halloween came around, i couldn't pass it up. considering the wear and tear i put it through as a child, and the fact that it's about thirty years old, it held up great! (good work, mom!) i put a new zipper on it (the picture above is pre-fix-up), patched up a little hole, and added some reinforcements at the knees, and it was ready to go.

how's that for keepin' it green?

and, by the cute is that little leopard?


i'd love to hear from you! and thank you for visiting...
