A tiny chili pepperitito, the Salsa Princess, Capiscum Kid, Jalapenitita, Hot-Cha-Cha-Cha, Etc... I give you the one and only Ada Pepper!
I'm sure that when Ada is older, she will come up with more creative costumes: Baby Doc Duvalier? Babyface? Babe Paley? Bebe Neuwirth? Baby Spice? Sadly for her, this year was not the most creative. I did struggle with it and came up with all sorts of ideas... ah, right. Ideas -- not actual costumes. Funny how despite all that brain-racking, all I could come up with was this off-the-rack chili pepper.
It's a good thing Ada is so incredibly cute -- she makes up for all the deficiencies in costume creativity.
