Our 8 year old daughter asked for dress up clothes for Christmas this year. Do you have any idea how expensive dress up clothes are for older kids? Holy guacamole! Thankfully, my daughter told me her wish list the day before Halloween. So Halloween and the day after, I was out bargain hunting for costumes marked 50-75% off.
Ta-da! Dress up clothes!
I not only found awesome costumes - everything from Hannah Montana to Renaissance dresses - but also some very cool accessories. Glittery microphones, a child's long blond wig, fairy shoes, princess wands, and fuzzy hats, purses, and boas. Heck, I even found Star Wars Light Sabers for all the kids for $1 each! But we'll save that for another post . . .
My daughter was ecstatic! She's been dressing up and putting on fashion shows ever since. And she's not the only one who's gotten into it.
Our oldest son is too macho to dress up, but I guess being the fashion show announcer and using the microphone is pretty cool. Although, I must admit that he sounds more like a circus announcer than a fashion show announcer. Shh! Don't tell him!
Here are some fabulous pictures and an absolutely hilarious video for you to enjoy . . .

Our son sure looks good in a dress, don't you think? He can sing too - check out the video below!
Our oldest son's new Bionicle even got into the fashion show! See how these incredible wings accent his outfit and coloring?
And now introducing our Super Model, MJ . . .
Very well done, everyone. Take a bow!!!
