But I think this might be a little too, um, sexy for a 9 year-old.
There were a lot of other great costume ideas at the party store. I made a ton of suggestions. All of them were shot down. Including this Athena costume which I thought we could easily turn into an Artemis costume:
But Zoe wanted no part of it. She's convinced no one will know who she is supposed to be if she wears it and I think she despises the idea of wearing a dress. Sigh.
Somehow Zoe was ultimately taken in by a set of bumble bee wings and so that is her costume, bumble bee. It is kind of disappointing in a way that doesn't make sense. I mean, it is her costume so she should be happy with it and that should be enough for me, right? Yeah, right.
I'm still thinking of ordering the Athena costume, just in case she changes her mind. Sigh.
