I am dressing as the little prince, from the book, The Little Prince. My family and I made this costume, we went to joans and got nice green fabric and a pattern that matched the little princes clothing the best, we then cut out the patterns, pinning them and what not and sewed them together. I chose to be this character for Halloween because i have always loved him. When i was around nine my grandpa read it to me and ever since i’ve loved the book. It has so much meaning and lessons its so touching. I truly feel the little prince is my spirit character, haha.
I feel most of us are him in some way or another. For me, we both really love someone but feel we are taken for granted…then we feel hurt and decide to take space, running away from the problem, only to come back because through the exprience we learn again why we love that one person. The over all lesson i feel the book gives is that it is okay to grow up, and grow out of things… but you shouldn’t ever forget what it was like to be a child. “Growing up isnt the problem, forgetting is.”
