Clown Clause

“This picture was taken in December of 1969 in Sherman Oaks, CA . That is me at the age of 6 months. He was this frightening Santa that would visit my grandmother and grandfather’s house every Christmas. To me he looks deranged.'”

“My dad would always dress in this creepy Santa costume. It didn’t take us long to figure out it was him because he always wore his work boots with the costume.”

New Year Cheer

“I’m the second girl from the right in the first row. It was December 1983 and a children’s New Year’s celebration in the USSR. It was common for the children to appear in Halloween-like costumes. Uncle Lenin was also everywhere. Can’t you feel the joy?”
