Purim: When I Was Queen
Although I believe these images require no explanation, I still feel compelled to mention:
Here's me, costumed as Queen Esther for a Purim festival at the synagogue of my childhood. Please note: these are not pictures of my First Holy Communion.
These pictures were taken only two years apart. Please note: Queen Esther eventually matures into being regal instead of a campy vamp.
My mother made the royal wear and gear. Please note: Same blue sheet, different ornamentation and accessories. I'm wearing peep-toe shoes at age 10.
There you have it, nearly the whole megillah! (Follow the previous link for an audio file of Megillat Ester).
