“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 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.”

Spirit Halloween

“This is a picture of my kids at my house for a Halloween photo shoot. It’s my favourite holiday and I dressed my kids up for the 7 days leading up to Halloween! My little boy (age 1), wanted no part of his costumes, while my little girl (age 4), was a real poser!”

Set For Life

“Nothing makes a pubescent girl feel cooler than a ‘properly set table’ Halloween costume. Let’s just say the costume did not fare well on the school bus.”

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.”
