What was your most memorable Halloween costume, I’d love to hear about it. I think I’d have to say that I have three…the first, my Cinderella costume. Costumes weren’t anything like they are today so you’ll need to try to picture this costume. It was plastic. It had a mask and a plastic wrap-around, tie at the back “dress”. You can’t even really call it a dress, it was kind of like today’s hospital gowns only not nearly as comfortable…lol…imagine something that is not as comfortable as a hospital gown. Did you ever wear one of these costumes, it would have been in the late 70’s?
Next one, one I made myself and I must say I did an amazing job. I was so proud of myself. I made a camera out of boxes. I painted them all black and I had a flash on top that I covered with tin foil. It had two arm holes out the sides. I was so excited to take it to school and show all my friends. I got on the bus and managed to damage it within the first 5 minutes of the ride. Didn’t ruin it but I had worked so hard on it and to have it damaged that quickly was hugely disappointing.
Lastly, certainly not one of my best pieces of work but I still remember it (maybe it’s because of the other memories that go along with the costume). It was at the age where we went out just for the fun it. We were really too old to be going out but it was certainly the cool thing to do. I went out as a mime with my friend Kristi. We both dressed in black and white, the opposite of each other. If I wore a white shirt, she wore a black shirt. I wore black pants, she wore white pants, etc… You get the picture. Really bad and if a kid came to my door dressed like that now they wouldn’t be getting any candy unless they could pull off a spectacular trick!
