Behind The Awkwardness

Beauty and the Beast

“I believe this was Halloween 1977, and in the era of creating hand made costumes. I know my dad slaughtered many wire coat hangers and reams of tin foil to make my fairy wings and crown. As far as my brother was concerned, my best guess is that he went as some uber creepy Planet of the Apes character.”

The Scarlet Letter

“We had a pilgrim costume in our family, and my mom thought it was hilarious to sew a red letter “A” on it for me to wear on Halloween. She told me it was because my name starts with A, but I’m sure the teachers and school administration thought it was either amazingly funny or completely inappropriate to dress up a 4th grader as Hester Prynne.”

Pumpkin Pi

“These are my 3 sons. The oldest on the left is wearing his robe backwards like a Snuggie, Caden sitting below seems oblivious that a camera is near and decided this was the day he’d style his hair like a 65 year old man from the 60′s. Mason on the left doesn’t seem to mind that the palm branches are caressing his locks. For the last 10 years, I’ve always carved a pumpkin for the boys. My oldest named it “Boo Zoo Elf” when he was 5 and thus we’ve stuck with Boo-Zoo Elf 2, 3, 4,….. Boo-Zoo Elf 10 appears in a few days.”
