The Force Awakens (Awkwardly)

“Have you ever had that horrible recurring dream where you are trick-or-treating but forgot to wear pants? In honor of the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I present this classic photo of me and my brother on Halloween, 1978. The joy of this photo is in the details. My brother’s little hand sticking out the top to try to hold the box up… My lack of pants (though I *am* wearing tights, I swear)… Couldn’t he have had a little less cardboard and given some to me? Also note that we needed to (incorrectly) label ourselves since no one knew what we were supposed to be — I wonder why. Sigh.”

Two Of A Kind

“One year my sister and I wanted to be the Teletubbies for Halloween, so our mother decided to make the costumes herself. But she couldn’t find any yellow footy pajamas so we were stuck being the same one. I’m the one on the left. As you can tell I was thrilled.”

The Great Halloween Tantrum

“I wanted a harem girl costume I saw at Sears but my parents refused to basically get me a slutty costume at 7 years old (which I was totally sure I could pull off, btw) so as a ‘compromise’ my mom bought me this t shirt and hat and I had a full-on tantrum on the front lawn that was so loud neighbors came out of their homes to check out the caterwauling child.”
