Portrait of the Writer as a Young Fan

I’m sure my last post implied that I’m an epic Anne fan. But just in case there was any doubt:

Katie dressed as Anne

Behold, 6th grade me swanning about in a Gibson Girl up-do! Was it a special occasion? Not at all! I was just bored on a Saturday and wishing I’d been born as a certain Canadian redhead.

(The hairdo was courtesy of my mother, a former beautician and infinitely patient parent.)

  1. In 5th grade I went trick-or-treating as Melanie from Gone With the Wind. Two peas, girl. Two peas.
    Also, how lovely are you?!?! You may be the only person on the planet who wasn’t crazy awkward in 6th grade.

  2. @ Shannyb: did you have a hoop skirt? Also: there’s a reason I’m posting my 6th grade dress-up pictures as opposed to my seventh grade school photo (blue eye shadow. Button-up silk shirt. Enough said.)

    @ Ginger: ironic, isn’t it, that I’ve wanted (natural) red hair my whole life? And, barring that, would settle for red-headed children?
