The “It” Factor

“I found these while going through old photo albums this weekend. Halloween 1979, I was a canvas for my older sister’s creativity. And clearly, I was thrilled about it. And yes, clowns freak me out 37 years later!”

Cavity Squad - Friends

Cavity Squad

“My childhood best friend’s family was very crafty and creative. We were always playing dress up. The dental-themed Halloween project was a major nightly endeavor that spanned weeks and involved many layers of paper mâché and tons of straws. We were a big hit in our neighborhood!  I’m the nerd wearing a floss box.”

“Every year my mom’s bowling league celebrates Halloween. If my mom looks a little scary in this it’s because this photo is one of several my dad insisted she pose for before leaving. Mom is not amused. I think she’s had just about enough.”

“This is my Googoo (grandmother) in 1980 debuting the spider costume she made. Everyone in our family has gotten to wear this in at some point in our lives (either by choice or a very strong recommendation from the designer).”

Upstaging The Cowgirl

“Early on in my relationship with my better half, my boyfriend took my little sister out trick-or-treating.  As this is the before photo, it doesn’t give away that she came home tantrum-angry because everyone ooh-ed and aah-ed over his costume all evening and didn’t say a word to the cowgirl.”

Smashing Pumpkins - Babies

Smashing Pumpkins

“We were taking some shots in the pumpkin patch and trying to get the baby to stop crying. His sister was sitting behind him and decided she wanted to play with a small pumpkin. She was about a foot behind his head but it ended up looking like she was the cause of his discomfort!”
