Rainbow Brite Costume

Halloween costume

Sometimes you love a character so much you just HAVE to be her for Halloween. That was the situation for the girl who wore this Halloween costume in 1986. She already played with Rainbow Brite dolls, slept on Rainbow Brite sheets, and watched the Rainbow Brite cartoon series. Her mother mentioned this Rainbow Brite affection to a client at her beauty parlor and the woman volunteered to make this one of a kind Rainbow Brite Halloween costume. Accessorized with a star drawn on her cheek with eyeliner, the girl felt thrilled to wear the costume on Halloween and later had a formal portrait taken in the costume.
