I have not seen Disneyâ€™s new TinkerBell movie.Â But, I have seen Peter Pan, andÂ I am not a fan of TinkerBell.Â Â I always thought she hadÂ a bad attitude (not to mention the skimpy costume).Â So, I was a little perturbed when my sweet girlÂ decided (months ago!)Â that she wanted to be TinkerBell this yearâ€¦Â
I tried – unsuccessfully – to steer her toward severalÂ other possibilitiesâ€¦specifically costumes that we already had on hand.Â I really thought I was getting somewhere with the whole Sleeping Beauty idea (her current favorite movie).Â But, no.Â Her littleÂ mind was made up!
Once I finally realized that Hannahâ€™s only knowledge of TinkerBell came from the very beginning of anyÂ Disney movie, when TinkerBell flits in and lights up the castle/logo, I began to warm up to the idea.Â What little girl doesnâ€™t like sparkles and fairies?!Â I know that her costume choiceÂ in no way reflectsÂ a desire to emulate Tinkâ€™s bad attitude.Â Â So, I gave in (and modified the costume a bit to keep it modestâ€¦and warm).Â And, even I have to admit, she makes a pretty cute TinkerBell:
