Halloween costumes you have tried...???

Monday, October 07, 2019

Hubby wore his fireman clothes -coat, boots, hat, etc. So I was a Dalmatian.
His costume was way easier than mine. I don't think I have a photo of that. darn.

For a scout meeting/party, in HS I did "blackface" when no one said it was not PC. I was quite tall and wore one of my Dad's suits and his big felt hat. We had a mom and pop grocery store out in a country area. I waited for my ride in front of our store (which was attached to our house). I heard later that customers were afraid to come in!~ Oh no!

    My son dictates our costumes each year now, considering he refused to wear anything like a costume for the first 10 or so years of his life, we go along. I've been Princess Peach from Mario (very itchy) while they were Mario and Luigi; Commander Leia (star wars), they were Han Solo and Chewbacca; Black Widow (very clingy showing every bump and bulge, and also itchy), they were Thor and Capt America. This year, I'm Velma Dinkley, DH will be Fred Jones, and the boy will be Scooby Doo!

    Throughout my childhood I had various costumes, but usually a colonial girl with a handmade colonial costume from my mom. As a young adult, I was death - skull face painting with a handmade shroud.

    Remember using a sheet to be a ghost and wearing my grandpa's overalls with straw sticking out another year. Can't remember dressing up other than as a kid.

    For a ladies bowling league we always dressed up.
    My favorite was Dolly Parton with a friend’s bra (stuffed with bath towels) and a gorgeous blond wig.
    A wide belt, short skirt and cowboy boots! Somewhere there is a picture for sure.

    When I was growing up, we couldn't afford costumes, just gimme the candy, lol! However, as an adult school librarian, I dressed up as a fairy godmother (with a white evening gown, long gloves, and a homemade wand) once, for a storytelling day. At school, I wore "deely-bobbers" on my head and was a "Book Bug" during some book fair days. My favorite was a cat, though! I put on cat ears headband, pinned on a black cat tail, wore black leotard and leggings, painted "cats eyes" and "whiskers" on my face with eyeliner! I wore it to take my dear god daughter trick or treating, which I enjoyed so much. She was a ballerina and "my" little girl, then. Good memories! emoticon

    My favorite costume was being a Japanese ghost. I wore a beautiful kimono that was normally my bathrobe; my lavender eyeshadow was my face paint; And a friend loaned me a geisha wig. Chris, I would’ve loved to see your Dalmation costume!

    I was a mime once for Halloween. Since I am shy, I liked not having to talk. I am not dramatic so the miming part of the costume was a challenge.

    My favorite was being an upside down man. I wore a flannel shirt as pants with gloves on my hands. Mom's wig head was attached to the collar of the shirt, and we cut holes in the pants pockets so I could see. My arms sure got tired from being held up with shoes on my hands.

    I always love the same costumes as an adult - Morticia, a witch, or a pirate. As a child I was princesses and ballerinas and things like that.
