|I HAVE THE [PLASTIC] POWER!|
You don't see vinyl Halloween costumes anymore. You never really looked all that cool while wearing one, at least not here on the East Coast, because it would be pulled over a couple of layers of clothing, and you'd get all sweaty behind that plastic mask. For the record, though, that cape was in my dress-up rotation for a while.
Anyway, She-Ra was way cooler than most princesses, more badass than Disney offerings, and had a lot more in common with Xena, Warrior Princess and Wonder Woman. Fighting crazy baddies with a sword, being the leader of a rebel alliance AND finding love? Seriously, that's a princess. (Bonus DOC points: she rides on a winged unicorn!)
This costume was pre-diabetes...Halloween with the big D came about 3 years later. In my mind, I am still leading rebellions, waving a sword around, and saving the day. Oh, and I totally want this:

Happy Halloween, everybody! What's your favorite costume from your past?
