It was actually pretty easy to capture pictures of Cheeky in costume, since she's been demanding to wear it every day since Saturday.
She wanted to go as a black cat because "black is very slimming."
The ladies modeling for the camera. What's hidden in this picture is the cookie monster band-aid, which will remain there until her high school graduation if necessary.
There was a "parade" in our neighborhood, which in Brooklyn roughly translates into "lots of people milling about in a confused and annoying manner." Also, it was freezing, and no, I'm not wearing a jacket.
Here's Cheeky and Oodgie on the promenade, with what appears to be a super-nova in the background.
Although Cheeky was certainly the cutest kid at the parade, I have to admit there were some pretty creative costumes. The N train is notoriously slow and unreliable, and I wonder now if it's because the conductor is five.
Some people stop and stare when they see car wrecks. Others, when they see midgets. (trust me, I know a guy) For Cheeky, it's pumpkins.
There was a kids festival at an over-priced private school nearby. This would be the "bag toss" or--the way Cheeky plays it--the "bag shove through the hole." Teach 'em to cheat early, I say.
I think she had a fun day. What do you think?
