We wonder who chose the costumes that year.

“Father and son at museum hosted event at Halloween 1999. I am an owl and he is a toucan bird. I made both costumes. My current museum educator thought that this image and moment in time needed to be officially documented.”

“When I was younger, my family and I would have themed Halloween costumes. This year was obviously Beauty and the Beast. Every year, we would get professional photos done of all of us in our costumes and my mother would later scrapbook them. My aunt’s Lumière costume was a crowd favorite of course and my older sister was forced to be Cogsworth just for the photo. The photo also features myself as Belle, my little sister as Chip, my mother as Mrs. Potts, and obviously my dad as the Beast. It’s a weird picture, but one of my favorites from my childhood.”

“Mom decided to save money on costumes that “you only wear once.” She tied trash bags on my brother and I and stuffed them with newspaper, smeared brown eye shadow on our faces and pasted big signs on our chests that said TRASH.”
