Halloween

Weenie Roast

“Every year on holiday my mum would make me dress up in a fancy dress competition. Here I am in the early 90’s, inside two sleeping bags… dressed as a ‘Hot Dog.’ As you can see I’m a good foot or so higher than the other contestants, making me at least 12 or 13… old enough to feel the utter embarrassment of being dressed as a massive sausage in a bun! It was also swelteringly hot inside.”

Crappy Halloween

“Here is a picture of me and my younger brother on Halloween. My brother got sick and was not allowed to trick or treat. I was able to go and my brother was clearly not happy about it.”

Stardate 1990

“This is a family photo from the 90s. We had coordinated Halloween costumes and my parents decided to get a professional photo taken of it for some reason. I’m in the yellow costume which I hated because I wanted blue or red. And yes, we watched a lot of Star Trek.”

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.”

The Horn

“Look at my mom.  And look at the unicorn horn on her head.”

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

“My mom thought it would be funny to dress her son as ‘Frank-n-swine’ for Halloween. She was right. 1989.”

Our Little Pumpkin

“One of the docs I work with made this. I’m thrilled. My co-workers aren’t as impressed.”

Now Ear This

“In 1994, I told my dad I wanted to be an ear for Halloween. He really came through.”
