If you could be anything in this world, what would it be? If you ask me now, my answers might fall somewhere along the lines of being happy, all-knowing, fulfilled, a good friend, financially stable, and better at answering text messages. If you asked me the same question when I was a spunky 6-year-old, I wouldn’t hesitate. The answer was simple: I wanted to be the Pink Power Ranger.

She was a force to be reckoned with—she was strong, she was athletic, and she was far from the distressed damsel I had been spoonfed up until that point. So when I had an opportunity to embody her and all that she stood for at my school’s first grade Halloween party, I was enthralled. And thus began my love for finding the perfect Halloween costume that would allow me to live out my wildest “I can be anyone (or anything) I want to be” dreams. Over 20 years have passed since I debuted as the Pink Power Ranger, but my love for the sentiment remains.
