Dirty Bird

“That was 3 year old me at a school Halloween party in the gym. And as far as I know, that was supposed to be Big Bird. And I’m still traumatized.”

Our Little Pumpkin

“My 3 year old was very unhappy about his first preschool field trip even though it was to a fun pumpkin patch. He scowled at everyone and everything the entire time and was even madder after I coerced him to getting behind this pumpkin cut-out to take this picture… if looks could kill, I would have been dead immediately after taking this photo!”

Little Red Riding Nope

“Our youngest daughter, (Little Red Riding Hood), was none-too-pleased about taking a Halloween portrait. Hence the frown of all frowns.”

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.”
