Halloween

Leather Weather

“I went to a harvest festival with some friends from school and took a picture with the giant pumpkin I came home with. Little did I know that the scarecrow behind me looked like it was wearing a mask made of human skin.”

Justice League

“My parents took me to a Halloween autograph session with ‘Justice League’ superheroes. Now that I look at it 30 years later I find it quite creepy, particularly Spider-Man.”

To Protect And To Serve

“Halloween 1994, when my parents told us they were a sock and a sock box, and asked us to put on our white pajamas, because we were dryer lint.”

Frank-N-Swine

Smoked

“My mom was always good at making Halloween costumes no matter what I wanted to be. She asked 8 year old me what I wanted to be and I knew some other kids who were going as cigarette boxes so I said ‘a cigarette!” She got to work and made me a Marlboro, lit with ashes at the top. Needless to say, the school banned any cigarette related costumes the next year.”

Chest Press

“This is my bro, dressed  as a ‘chest of drawers’ – theses are actually my mums knickers pinned to his shirt! What can I say, it was the 80’s!”

Sharp Objects

“Florida, Halloween 1980. Me and my dad. My parents took a very liberal approach to the question of whether babies should be allowed to carve their own pumpkins.”
