Happy Halloween!

October 30, 2010


Um, I’m gonna need me a baby owl. Especially one that hunts imaginary prey.

And now, for something to comment about: Three childhood Halloween costumes, in no particular order. I’ll go first:

* Darth Vader (borrowed helmet from brother)
* Jawa (I was supposed to have glowing eyes, but technology hadn’t caught up yet)
* A clown? (Huh, it’s hard for me to come up with three. Drat my terrible memory.)

  4. Beth Said on:

    Tinkerbelle (Mom made it -- a green costume with little bells on it)

    A witch (a bunch of black clothes and fabric, and a store bought hat)

    Smurfette (I used Mom’s blue eye shadow to “paint” my face, it was pathetic)

    Only did it once, curse the Australian lack of interest.
    Curiously though I have a picture of the one costume I did wear, which you can see here

    Raggedy Ann -- It was a cute mask from cheap store, but I can’t breathe in those masks.

    Clown -- The multi-colored wig made my look complete.

    Old lady -- I had powder in my hair and old lady glasses.


  7. Peggy Said on:

    *Gasp* Was I ever a child? I don’t remember.

    Ragedy Ann (homemade-dyed mop for hair)

    Witch (homemade except for the hat--I remember I had been sick & my mom put so much clothing on under the costume, I had a hard time getting up the steps of all the houses)

    Fidel Castro (by accident, I was probably 10 & I just grabbed a jacket, fake beard/mustache thingy & wore a cap …. and so many people said Fidel Castro—I didn’t even know who he was)
