Some of the best costumes of my short life (not many, Halloween is not my favorite holiday)
*Please note that all of our costumes as children were hand made by my Mama.
Please notice the use of cowboy boots for the black cat costume. I rocked this look. I made black cowboy boots fashionable in the first grade. This costume is a staple– we still have the pieces for this and I have worn them as an adult.
This family photo features Sean as the grim reaper?, cousin Eileen as a lion, cousin Carolyn as a bear, and cousin Kerri as an I don’t know what but all I remember is I was jealous and pissed that she got to have her stomach showing. Her Mama forgot Halloweens in Pennsylvania are cold.
Why wouldn’t a pilgrim an M&M hang out? If I remember the story right, there was some fighting about being a pilgrim… can’t remember if I wanted to be it or not. But this isn’t my best costume. This is Sean’s best. As usual, these numbers were made by Mama and I have to say she out did herself with this M&M costume. It still hangs in a place of honor in our house.
Remember that cute little bear up above? That’s her all grown up on the left as a crazy, dead, witch lady (we threw that one together at the last minute). I am Flo from the Progressive Insurance commercials. This is one of my best adult costumes. This little number cost me about $7 and took 10 minutes.
My costume from this year. I went with the name pun. This one cost me $0 and took me about 30 minutes (it took me a while to figure out how to best wear it).
Hope you enjoyed! Have a safe and happy Halloween!!
