A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

....er, last night, under a full moon, in a small nw Minnesota town....
a princess-obsessed four-year old was transformed into the lovely, smart, and brave Princess Leia.
She wore a store-bought turtleneck and thrift-store found silver belt, and a corduroy gown and cotton braids her mother made for her. To show how she could triumph over evil, she carried Darth Vader's head as a treat bucket. She met a handsome chicken while on her journey, and the two were soon interupted by a giggling one-year old bumblebee. The three explored the local galaxy, gathering treasure and treats and joy at every house they visited.The brave, smart, lovely princess prevailed once again.

(Her costume pales in comparison to these, but it's exactly what she wanted, and it turned out even better than I'd hoped. Hope your Halloween was intergalactically wonderful!)
