Tragic Halloween Costumes (part 3)

Long before the madness known as AMERICAN GIRL became our latest national nightmare, young girls (and some adventurous boys) imagined themselves living in the pioneer world of LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE. Yes, there were kids who actually enjoyed making believe they worked the fields in Walnut Grove, taught in a school for the blind and battled the devil incarnate herself, Nellie Oleson. Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls Wilder was extremely cute, but it didn't hurt your teeth to look at her (like many other sugary child stars of the 1970s). She had a sweet, wholesome and believable cuteness that kept us tuning in on Monday nights, even into the 1980s when Laura had a husband and kids of her own.So why then, did they make a Halloween mask that made her look more like, um...Perez Hilton?Poor "Half Pint".

Okay, but the fight she had in the mud with Nellie on the season premiere of 1979? Totally hot.

Okay, Mrs Aladin - I'll be emailing you shortly. Sounds like a great business opportunity! Why with $8.5 million I could make about 25 kick-ass low-budget films! You sound lovely, maybe we can watch THE SPANISH PRISONER together one day.

Okay, but I totally get to be the ingenue in one of those films. Preferably a gritty drama about an overweight 38-year-old housewife from Phoenix who is all full of booze and pills and bitterness. Make sure she also has a filthy mouth. :)
