Behind The Awkwardness: The King

“Every Halloween until they’re old enough to say no, my mother makes a historically accurate Elvis costume for each of my sons. This was my middle son Leo’s first Halloween. My husband works for a Fortune 500 company in Memphis who does a fantastic family day every Halloween. They go all out, including “professional” photography. Since Leo was barely 6 months old and couldn’t sit up very well in the heavy costume, the photographer had my husband hold him and said he would crop him out of the final pic. Thankfully, he did not because this epically awkward photo was the result.”

“This is my best friend on Halloween when she was about ten. She was NOT happy with her mother’s choice of costume for her, and apparently, the make-up job was sub-par as well because it looked, as she wailed with indignance, “It looks like I’m crying blood!”

Me: “Honey, I don’t think she can hold herself up on that pumpkin.”

Husband: “You just take the picture. I promise I’ll make sure she doesn’t fall.”

“My mom said she was dressing us up as “The California Raisins.” As I look back on this photo and share it with friends, I really think she was dressing us up as two turds.”
