New Year Cheer

“I’m the second girl from the right in the first row. It was December 1983 and a children’s New Year’s celebration in the USSR. It was common for the children to appear in Halloween-like costumes. Uncle Lenin was also everywhere. Can’t you feel the joy?”

Hello Dolly

“My mom gave my dad a Dolly Parton cake for his birthday in 1984. He was not amused for some reason, even though I know he loves Dolly and apparently he didn’t wear shirts in the 80s.”

Pole Position

“This is me (on the pole), my impressed sister, and my disappointed mother circa 1984. My dancing career never took off but I guess there’s still time.”

Deck The Halley’s

“This is not a picture of terrified 6-yr-old me being held hostage by Santa Claus and his not-so-little helper, but actually a real holiday photo shoot at a toy store during Christmas season in 1985. In case you’re wondering what Santa’s helper was wearing, it was a Halley’s Comet-inspired costume because Halley’s Comet was all the rage in 1985.”

Her Hairness

“This is my senior high school picture. It was 1990 but I still lived in the 80’s!”
