Fancy Dress…The Ordinary Moments

Fancy Dress…The Ordinary Moments

If you knock on our front door late afternoon you will often be greeted by a little fairy hiding behind me. But it’s never your typical fairy!

You see my little Holly likes to be individual, mix it up a bit and I love it. She is also the typical second child and until recently she didn’t have any of her own fancy dress costumes, they were all Alice’s, even though Alice let her wear them.

But no matter what Holly wears, she always says she is a fairy and she will have a pair of fairy wings on. A few weeks ago it was Halloween and I wrote about the girls first time trick or treating, where Holly decided at the last minute she didn’t want to wear the pumpkin dress. She wanted to be a fairy!

Thankfully after some quick thinking I found some bat wings I had in the back of my wardrobe and they are just like fairy wings. Teamed with a tutu, she was a bat fairy!

This week it was Children In Need and Holly’s preschool was doing fancy dress for the day. I asked Holly what she wanted to be and of course I knew the answer, a fairy. But with Holly that could mean anything with a pair of wings.

The morning came around and we go to the dressing up bag, out come of the fairy wings (of course). Not just any fairy wings, the pink ones that are about three years old and have seen better days. And even though I’ve brought new fairy wings, she insists on still wearing these ones.

Alice and I are sat waiting to see what she is going to decide to wear with them, whilst giggling at our little Holly and her crazy ways.

I give you my…Rainbow Dash, fairy, princess!

I love her little imagination, that to her it doesn’t matter that the Rainbow Dash costume comes with it’s own blue wings and headband. She wanted the old pink wings, the glitter princess crown and a wand and so that is what she wore and I think she looks adorable.

She certainly won the hearts of her teachers when she arrived at preschool!

I hope that as she gets older she keeps her imagination, her individual style and never changes…
