    The pics are fantastic but I swear it’s the tag lines that are making me laugh so hard that my belly aches….then there are the comments…it’s too much! Who needs prozac when you’ve got this!?

  2. Jim says:

    Actually it looks more like the dryer was trying to eat him!

  3. kenai says:

    very creative… and resourceful

  4. PTSD says:

    Actually, this is just cool.

  5. Shannon F says:

    Is that an over-sized sardine can he’s wearing?!

  6. Sandy says:

    I also wanted everyone to know that I was a robot NOT a tinman!!! And Peter Pan has a black eye because he was always fighting with the lost boys!!!

    I hate to admit this but I made a martian costume for my son when he was 3 and I though I was really being creative… looking back on it… nah… maybe I should submit it — he was the only kid with a homemade costume — all the others were fairy princesses, and marvel characters…

  8. Sandy says:

    I am saddened that everyone thought that I was a boy!!! But I believe that NO ONE can say that anyone else had the same costume that year!! I looked awesome!!!


    I am going through my old albums now…….. 🙂

  10. Joy says:

    Why does the little boy have a black eye? ???

  11. Snowrider says:

    Well, let’s just pray that there’s no electrical storms in the forcast for Halloween night……

  12. Tim says:

    fan of Ed Woods, are we?

  13. Zach says:

    Honey? Where is the dryer hose?

  14. LuLu says:

    Is the littlest one supposed to be the Jolly Green Giant?

  15. doreen says:

    What is the small fellow supposed to be? He has a Kermit the Frog collar going on, but I’m unsure about the rest of the ensemble.

    “Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!”

  17. charmy_canuck says:

    because mom and dad splurged on the other 2 costumes johnny had to make due with tin foil, dryer ducts, and Turkey pans…

  18. Liz says:

    That little guy looks EXACTLY like my son! I think it’s adorable! (Despite what his brother’s wearing) Is he supposed to be Peter Pan or the Jolly Green Giant? Kermit the frog, after he pissed off the wrong pig? Anyhow, it’s cute.

  19. laurie says:

    Robots, small elves, and ill witches! OH MY!

  20. john in co says:

    Why is his face blue?>

  21. carol says:

    Clever! I love it!

  22. Jaime says:

    That. Is. Awesome!

  23. Tim S says:

    The little voices told me that this is the correct use of tinfoil to prevent being taken over!

  24. Marshall says:

    Since when did the a shiner become a standard part of the munchkin outfit?

  25. G$ says:

    The witch in the corner looks ready to attack.

  26. Track23 says:

    I’ve never seen a truer representation of a heart-on.

  27. darryl says:

    What’s that red blotch?

  28. Morag says:

    This is what dressing up is supposed to be about. Not £100 outfits from the high street, as is reputedly the more popular option amongst middle class parents in the UK.

  29. Becky says:

    And I am unsure why his heart is… not where a heart should be.

  30. AllAboutDave says:

    My God, is that a collander on his head too? It looks like two strands of spaghetti escaped somewhere between here and Mars.

  31. Amber says:

    Cute and creative!

  32. Teetsee says:

    This brings back memories of homemade costumes from my youth. Mom would look around the house to see what she had, then she’d make up a costume to fit the supplies.

  33. ballfour says:

    Marney would be appalled!!! Not only is that caserole dish not regulation, it is being completely mis-used…and neery a serving spoon in sight!

    Clearly a fan of The Honeymooner’s Ralph Kramden, he went as The Man from Space, Jr.
