You guys, THE REAL JEM from THE ORIGINAL Jem and the Holograms cartoon from the 80s gave my daughter and I a shout out for our Halloween costumes on her Instagram account!! Her name is Samantha Newark and she’s a really big deal in the cosplay world and makes special appearances at Comic Con’s all over the world.
All that work and all the hours spent trying to pull off our daughter/mother costumes was worth it! It ended up being an awesome Halloween and even though every year I say, “maybe I won’t dress up next year,” chances are I probably will. It’s so worth it to see the looks on my kids faces 🙂
Oh, and we carved pumpkins just in the nick of time! A few hours before trick or treaters arrived.
BOOM. Halloween 2017 is in the books. Time to start brain storming for next year! Fingers crossed my kids won’t be too cool to do another family costume.
