My Laura Ingalls Costume

At the school where I teach Halloween was Book Character Day.  Everyone was encouraged to wear a costume depicting their favorite book character. We then had a character parade and everyone walked across the stage, told thier character, and shared a little about their book.  I didn’t even need to think about it because I knew that Laura Ingalls Wilder was my favorite character/author! I have loved Laura and the Little House on the Prairie for as long as I can remember!

Here is a photo of Laura.

I have read every one of Laura’s books at LEAST 10 times!  Every year I reread The Long Winter and Little House in the Big Woods.  It was really fun to dress up as Laura for a day! Here are two pictures of me.

The pictures were taken on a cell phone and there was a little bit of a glare but I think you get the idea!

    That is an interesting costume! I like it!
    I was wandering around Laura Ingalls Wilder sites, and sites related to her, and I found this, and I feel I must say that I am lucky to be related to Laura Ingalls Wilder. You see, Almanzo Wilder was a great, great uncle of mine. (I am not sure the exact relation, but my great-grandmother (paternal) adopted her second husband’s last name for herself and for her children, that name being Veich. Originally, though, her married name was Wilder. My great-grandfather, my great-grandmother’s first husband, died when he was only 23 or so from a hunting accident.)
    Anyway, I just love to look at Laura Ingalls Wilder’s history and my family’s history. It interests me so.
    I really like the costume, though.
    I realise, also, that the message previous to mine also says that they are related(what a coincidence! haha!)
