Ellie's Halloween Costume: Audrey Hepburn!

Hey everybody!

Deciding what we were going to be for Halloween this year was difficult. We all had our own ideas of what we wanted to be, yet with three independent minds, getting the other two on your side was no small task.

At first, Ellie wanted to dress us all up in different Star Wars garb, which was pretty cool. However, as time went on and Halloween drew nearer, we had fancier ideas. Ultimately, we went as icons of the past, present, and future. I deemed it was not too soon to portray the king of pop, MJ as the present icon. Meredith donned a blonde wig and rocker accessories and transformed into Hannah Montana, America's future icon.

But the piece de resistance was Ellie.

Ellie decided that she could portray the icon of the past by becoming Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn! Ahhhh, I just love that girl! When other girls around the globe are dressing up as fairies, princesses, ballerinas (and there is nothing wrong with these - Ellie's been them in the past), my little sweetie got super-fancified, with the help of Mere and the actress was born.

We had to, of course, shoot our own little Breakfast at Tiffany's shot for the blog. Enjoy!

I hope you had a fun and safe Halloween!

Talk to you soon,
Dale
