This is the time before a party when I should be scrubbing toilets or something, so when I heard Suzanne & Amy were hosting a Vintage Halloween Blog Hop, I jumped at the opportunity to spend too much time digging through old photo albums.
Growing up, our Halloween costumes were usually pieced together from dance costumes & random accessories. Mom didn't sew- she was known for stapling our girl scout badges on (which is genius by the way). My sister and I played dress-up a lot, so my memories of Halloween costumes are all mixed up with dance recitals & dress-up.
But one of my favorite Halloween memories (which I unfortunately don't have a picture of) is from a church youth group costume contest. I think I was in 5th or 6th grade. A friend & I made our own Mickey & Minnie costumes and won a free large pizza... which we then ate entirely by ourselves. We were very proud- which is the opposite of how I would feel now if I ate 4 slices of pizza in one sitting.
Anyway, here are the pics I found.
|I'm pretty sure I wore these ears later as Minnie.|
|I have no idea what I was supposed to be. Some kind of angel/fairy/princess? But my sister, the bumble bee, is adorable.|
This is fun. Go visit Suzanne & Amy, read everybody's cool Halloween memories, and link up your own!
