It doesn’t matter how far away Halloween is, the award for original costume of the year goes to this girl right here.
A 5-year-old from North Carolina named Ainsley took a simple theme at school, put a total 180-degree spin on it and ended up becoming a hit on social media. The accomplishment she received plaudits for? Wearing a hot dog costume during Princess Week at the Holly Springs School of Dance.

She wasn’tonly shining on social media, though. Ainsley also got to open up her school’s recital. Even at her own school, she was still treated like a celebrity.

And the crazy thing, when you think about it, is the hot dog costume isn’t that far off. Sure, hot dogs have nothing to do with monarchies, OK. But, we can all agree toonething: Hot dogs are way better than princesses anyway.
