Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast - Behind The Awkwardness

“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.”

Middle Child

Middle Child - Behind The Awkwardness

“I am the angry girl in the van. My younger brother and mother are the two happy people posing. I also have an older brother who is not pictured but I was constantly teased about how no one likes the middle child and how my younger brother is “the baby” and “the favorite.” This picture pretty much sums up how I felt about being the middle child.”

The Scarlet Letter

The Scarlet Letter - Behind The Awkwardness

“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

Pumpkin Pi - Behind The Awkwardness

“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.”

Scarecrows

Scarecrows - Babies

“I was barely a month old and my parents my parents decided my first ‘outing’ should be a trip to the local mall. Not only were those mall scarecrows scarier than anything I’ve ever seen in a horror movie, I was doomed to live a life as a NY jets fan.”
