Halloween Costume Or Not?

Is the girl wearing a Halloween costume or are the clothes her normal daily attire. Is she a peasant or a gypsy?

Is that a real cat or a stuffed animal? What is in her right hand? A noisemaker? This is a very intriguing image.

It looks like a small tin toy tambourine in her hand - perhaps this was taken on the day of a fancy dress party or school show; 'Gypsy' fashions were all the rage in the forties - something to do with Balkan WWII refugees. It's strange to remember that as late as the seventies people who didn't have a shutterbug in the family often only had their photo taken once or twice a year outside of formal occasions, and the owner of the camera nearly never!

It's a box of face powder, and yes it's a real cat. I could say by the looks of her socks, it's a costume of some sort. I don't think girls wore that 'print' of bandana. I don't even think it's a vintage photo.

It's a real photo. She looks hot dressed like that and the thing in her hand looks like a cat dish, you know, so she can feed her REAL cat?
