ashtree 's Thoughts:

I’ve got a bit of a thing for trees. That sounds a little funny I suppose, but my name, Ashlee, means “of the ash tree” so maybe it isn’t purely coincidental that I should have a soft spot for the majestic beauties. “Ash Tree” is actually a nickname of mine (and also my chictopia username!) partly because of my first name and partly because of my height (I’m 5 foot 10).

My costume was inspired by all of the above. I spent several hours carefully gluing leaves all over a homemade tank-top, and constructed a head piece consisting of a blue bird, a nest full of eggs, and a whole mess of leafy branches.

I would love if you vote, comment, favorite, or tweet my photo for the costume contest!

Happy Halloween!
