Hi everyone! Just reminiscing now! When I was a little girl I loved to pretend that I was a grown up. My grandmother had a trunk of old clothes in her attic. I used to love to go through the clothes and dress up in them. I would pretend that I was a movie star sometimes. How did you like to dress up for pretend as a child?

hi sender while other girls dressed up like models or what have yhou I took an old white shirt, made a doctors coat out of it, and used my doctor dad's old stethoscope to listen to my sick dolls and sick dog and sick cat. I would bandage, and operate and pretend I was a doctor and have such fun.I even stuck a bunch of onion leaves into my tin doll and my mom had to dug them out because they were beginning to smell something fierce. the doll had a head of tin And a stuffed body. I told my mom that that was medicine. she laughed til she almost c ried.

I was always a little tomboy. I didn;t like wearing dresses much at all, and still don't. The only kind of dressing up I liked to do was on Halloween when Mom would make us costumes.

Halloween is the best time to play pretend!

My mom had these skirts that she wore in the fifty. The skirts that came down to the middle of their legs. When I put the skirt on it would reach my ankles.I use to love trying them on with the short sweaters they wore with the skirt. In fact I sometimes wore them when I played a gypsy for halloween adding jewelry and makeup for the whole affect to work.

It looks like a lot of us had fun playing dress up. It was such fun to pretend to be something else.

We, my sister and I love to act like models. We have lots of old clothes in the house. My sister and I could spend hours in the attic and make a fashion show. We pretend we're in a runway. It was fun until mom came and told us to clean up the mess.

Hi princzy. You know we should have gotten together as children. We could have made our own movies for our families. Thanks for sharing!
