Fairy Costumes Are For Chumps


She looks like what might happen if the Tin Man and the Scarecrow mated and produced a doll-decapitating serial killer, but appearances can be deceiving: she is a Jumbo Rainbow Craft Robot, and the decapitated baby head is Baby Sally, who is – fear not – very much alive and well and fulfilling her role as Emilia’s shoulder companion (‘so I won’t get scared trick-or-treating.‘ This is a girl who approaches fear in novel and exciting ways.)

Next Halloween I might think twice before I say, you can go as whatever you want, sweetie, but then again, maybe not. The looks on the faces of the candy-dispensing ladies at the seniors’ home were kind of worth it. Maybe a lot worth it.

Maybe next year I’ll make sure there’re extra baby heads on hand.

She is looking completely amazing in the costume. The costume is completely something strange and her makeup is looking something horrifying. It’s great.
