When I was born Rainbow Brite was all the rage (now you can guess my age!) My dad thought I looked like her, orange hair and all, and he lovingly nicknamed me “Rainbow Brite.” To this day he still calls me Rainbow Brite in that affectionate father voice – when he walked me down the aisle at my wedding he said “My Rainbow Brite is all grown up!”
My mom quickly adopted my dad’s nickname for me and decided that for my first true Trick Or Treating adventure she would make me a Rainbow Brite costume. She did an impeccable job! Although I may not look too happy in the picture I can assure you that I LOVED that costume and everything Rainbow Brite – from my sheets, to my wallpaper and especially my prized doll. I believe my mom was able to squeeze me into my ‘perfect costume’ for two years!
For another le•top costume idea try sweet ‘Sophie the poodle’. Keira models the soft pink faux fur coverall with a hood and barking sound.
