When I was a little girl, I had three idols: She-Ra, Jem, and Rainbow Brite. In three consecutive years, from first grade through third, I agonized and obsessed over the opportunity to be any of the three for Halloween.
Fact: I was She-Ra once. In the first grade, I got my wish, and I was the Princess of Power! Sort of. Remember those vinyl hospital gown-like costumes that had the image printed on the front and tied in the back? And they had those plastic masks with the little holes in the eyes, and that slit at the mouth, that you inevitably got your tongue stuck in?? Well, that was my She-Ra costume…you can see the real thing in the fourth photo of this post from Go Lucky Duck. Perfectly acceptable, and expected, for the day. Awesome even, no?
