Day 1: Little Red Riding Hood


Day 1: Little Red Riding Hood


Today is the first day of a personal challenge where I plan to dress to a different theme everyday for a whole year. Today is also my 26th birthday, a day that should signify my journey WELL into adulthood and maturity…the problem, I’ve never really quite grown up. That is why I thought it appropriate to start with one of my favourite childhood fairy-tales: Little Red Riding Hood. With a twist. In my adaptation, Little Red is a little less sweet, wearing the wolf’s head post-mortem as a sign of her victory.

    I was alerted to your challenge by the website earlier this evening – and how glad I am of this. I’ve spent the night going backwards through the different posts of your costumes. You’re wonderfully creative, fantastically geeky, and I’m sure your year brought a smile to many a person (including dozens of grins from me). I hope you loved the experience as much as I’ve loved reading about it.
