~ the ballet costume ~

24 October 2013


last Tuesday, aina’s ballet school distributed the costume for the year-end concert, Giselle. the costume is pink with gold decorations here and there… it was soooo pretty! aina was ecstatic when she saw the costume, it made her feel like the older ballet girls, “OMG, the tutu is like the Swan Lake tutu, mommy! it’s not the floppy kind!”

she hugged the costume all the way home from the class. and as soon as we got home, she immediately put it on and started to dance and twirl around her room…


And then, as i saw her twirling and dancing in that pink ballet costume, i slowly started to remember our conversation 4 years ago

aina ballerina

i drew this illustration of aina when she was barely 2 years old, based on her saying of wanting to be a ballerina when she grew up. at that time, she had to wait one and a half years to get into a ballet school, because she was too young.

four years after, this is her… close enough, no?


seeing this makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside…

Aina udah besar ya. Waktu lihat fotonya tadi, langsung inget ilustrasi yang pernah dibikin sama mbak, eh ada juga di sini. Warmths my heart, too :)
