ALOHA and HAU’OLI HALLOWEEN!! This year, I decided to go as Moana for two reasons. The first is that my nephew wanted to be Tomatoa this year, so I definitely had to be Moana. The second — I don’t think that I’ve mentioned it, but I am one-quarter Hawaiian. My grandfather was Hawaiian, and I felt connected to the character. I’ve always loved Lilo and Stitch, but when Disney came out with Moana, I absolutely fell in love with the movie. That Polynesian Princess instantly became my favorite. I made both mine and my nephew’s costumes this year (You’ll see them on Instagram: @sickreativity.) I enjoyed every second of making these costumes – a definite labor of love but oh soooooo worth it!
