The Second Worst Costume Ever?

OK, so most little girls were princesses and angels. It's not the worst costume, after all.  Paging through the photo album in twenty years shouldn't be too traumatizing.
she originally wanted to be an Orca. After the Free Willy Movie, you know.
I hestitated, picturing what a killer whale costume might look like. But it was Halloween, so what the heck, right?
"Enjoy it while you can," I said, "because I promise - this will be the first and last time in your life you'll ever want people to point you out as a whale."
But there were no Free Willy costumes to be had.
So we went with a penguin.
"Look, it's Happy Feet!" people said, which I guess is a movie. And perhaps this is the last time she'll want to be known for her feet.
