If I dress my 17mo in this, what costume would I call it? Or, other ideas welcome.

As per my usual, I am brainstorming last minute for costumes. So, rifling through drawers, I came across a pink leotard with attached tutu, and a plaid lumberjack shirt...I have an image of her wearing these together - what does that make her? A grunge princess? A 90's fashionista? (Or is that current fashion??)

Or....what? I am certainly not into putting the tutu on her and calling her a ballerina...I want something funny or interesting , but easy to wear (you know, since she's 17 m.o.!) And the point will be mainly to amuse the adults, of course.

All kinds of other random objects/toys/and clothing are available too.

Ideas? Thoughts?? I can't get this image of her in the tutu & plaid shirt (Perhaps with the addition of her brown winter boots???) out of my head.

I like the idea of a grunge princess

Tutu doesn't say princess to me......I know you didn't want "ballerina" but what about "grunge ballerina"?

The lumberjack from the Monty Python song?

Ha! I thought of the Monty Python lumberjack too. ANd it was the first thing DH said when I told him the outfit.

As for Ace Ventura, could be hilarious, but being totally unfamiliar with Ace Ventura myself, can't do.

I think I'll go with grunge princess - I think that term describes a certain style of dress (think plaid shirt, ripped denim, with ultra-feminine accessories like heels, hot pink lace bra, long blond hair, even pearls), not actually "princess". Not a princess who is grungy, but a grunge-dresser who is princess-y, if that makes sense.

Any other thoughts welcome!
