Halloween

Baby Toy

“1993, London and I was 2 years old. My parents were friends with a make-up artist and prop maker and thought this would be a great picture.”

All Dolled Up

“This photo was taken on Halloween in 1984. It’s my sister (Raggady Ann), my brother (@jdcallan – a teddy bear?), and myself (Cabbage Patch Doll). My 25 year old mother was clearly unprepared for her life with 3 children!”

Parrot Head

“Either I was really persistent or my mom was done being creative with the costumes but I cut 2 eye holes in the hollowed out top of a piñata and walk around the neighborhood as a Parrot Head. 1972.”

The Count

“This is me as a young child getting my picture taken at a local Toys ‘R Us. Not only am I getting my picture with Dracula but I am wearing Mork and Mindy suspenders and a Father Guido Sarducci shirt.”

Baby Pumpkin

“This is my friend’s husband inside a pumpkin bounce house. Nothing better than a family outing where you see a live breech birth.”

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.”
