We’ve seen some fantastic things during Frosting Fortnight: Laura’s vintage creations, Jennifer’s lace corset, outfits made of chocolate & cake, dresses made of vegetables. All wonderful things made by adults. Sometimes inspiration comes from other sources though.
Every day Stella Ehrhart dresses up as a different person, most of whom she learned about in the book 100 Most Important Women of the 20th Century. She’s been Billie Holiday, Aung San Suu Kyi, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Grace Kelly, her best friend Virginia Holtzclaw, Queen Elizabeth, Georgia O’Keefe, & Jan Brady just to name a few.
She’s been dressing up like this for over a year, since the second day of the second grade. Stella is eight years old. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska, where her teachers & fellow students are all supportive of her outfits, both the obvious costumes & the subtle ones.
When I heard about Stella I was blown away. I hope you’re inspired by this amazing person too.
