Vanessa Bryant and her daughters are all smiles this Halloween — the first without Kobe and Gianna Bryant — and for good reason too … their costumes are freakin’ amazing.
The Bryant family did a double shot of Halloween fun this year with a photo shoot that featured two sets of matching costumes between Vanessa and her three girls — the themes being ‘Madeline’ (the beloved children’s book series) and a classic choice … ‘Star Wars!’
For the former set, Mamba Bear dressed up as the boarding school teacher, Miss Clavel, while Natalia and her baby sisters, Bianka and Capri, donned the traditional uniform of Madeline and her classmates … y’know, from the house in Paris covered in vines.
Needless to say … they look incredible, almost like they were torn right out of the page. It’s crazy, ’cause this is actually more realistic and faithful to the illustrations than the live action movie from the ’90s.
On that latter shoot, it was less realism … and more adorable than anything. Vanessa was a shorter version of Darth Vader, Natalia was a much taller version of BB8 — and the two little ones were a Storm Trooper and an Ewok, respectively. These outfits were like the family-friendly ones you might find at a Target or something … which played well for the camera.
The get-together seemed like a pretty joyous event, but of course … the shadow of Kobe and Gigi still loom large, which makes the shoot pretty heart-breaking at the same time. Like we mentioned, this marks the first Halloween without them around — and yet, the Bryants carried on with the family tradition of dressing up like champs.
Thankfully, Natalia’s got a great shot of her and Gigi goofing around together this time last year. They were rockin’ ‘Wizard of Oz’-themed costumes — with Natalia as the Scarecrow and Gianna as the Tin Man.
Worth a thousand words, ain’t it?
