Check that off!

Be the Easter Bunny?  Check.  I can now cross off dressing up as a mascot off my list.  (However, I don't think I ever had it on my list!)

My mom was in a pinch and needed someone to dress up for their Easter Egg hunt that their company puts on.  Who does she ask?  Me!!!  Since it's the beginning of our Spring Break, many people I'm sure left on vacation and I was able step in.

What's it like being in a costume?  Claustrophobic to begin with.  Hot.  Sweaty.  The headband kept dropping into my eyes and it was hard to navigate it back up.  The overall worst part (and you would have to know me for this), I couldn't talk!!!  Argh!  An hour and a half of silence!  Makes me wonder how the Disney characters do it day in and day out.  

Nevertheless, the smiles on the kids' faces, the hugs, and grabbings of my legs made it all worthwhile.  It was fun to pass out high fives, give candy, and try to be overly dramatic with my movements.  

After...see how my hair was affected by the head piece?

Sure, there were the kids that screamed as soon as they saw me.  But there were others that kept coming back for more hugs and photo opportunities.  Pricessl

How do people do that all day? (Sounds like a hot mess) How kind of you to step in for your mom.

This is priceless, Cathy. It was an opportunity, and I think you will do it again. Think about it, how many people have ever been the Easter bunny!!!???

Sounds like it was totally worth roasting in the costume!

Happy (early) Easter, Cathy!
