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.”

Happy As A Clam

“My Halloween costume in 1992: spaghetti and clam sauce. There’s a big plexiglass fork on the side sticking up. My dad dribbled real clam juice all over me so no one would get too close at the middle school dance.”

Bunny Ears

“As a toddler, my parents dressed me up as a Playboy Bunny for Halloween (Note the fake boobs and cuff links). To put it into perspective, I’m dressing my toddler up as an avocado for Halloween this year. The ‘80s were a weird time, man.”
