Sunday Smile: halloween retrospective

The Child Years: I always wanted a kitty, but had to be happy being one instead.

The Party Years: My ode to Tank Girl. I had the most fun making this costume!
note: ripped off my head due to extreme drunken face

The Adult Years: Last time I dressed up for Halloween. Inspired by Sin City & Kill Bill.


Wish I had more photos taken of my history of Halloween costumes! I haven't "celebrated" Halloween since my early 30s. I still partake in miniature chocolate bars from time to time, but not just on October 31st, it's more of a year-round interest.

In my 20s and even in my early 30s, I liked to get dressed up to go to parties or out to bars and be silly. Now, though, I like quiet. I turn off all the lights & put up a note saying No Candy Here (or something like that). I've become the scrooge of Halloween.

If I still had the spirit, though, I'd either wear a vintage nurse's uniform, be a 1960s airline stewardess or be a catwoman. The only regret I have is that I never dressed up as Batgirl when I was little.


I'm going to rent out some movies and bake some cookies tonight, whilst trying to ignore the doorbell.
Happy Halloween!

  1. Oh I love the photos! Happy Halloween!

    I wish I could find photos of all my childhood costumes too! My mom used to sew me up some elaborate ones! Once I was The Queen of Hearts, and I am sure I remember being a scarecrow, complete with straw stuffing, at least once.

    Have a great night, Enjoy your cookies! :) We're going to watch some movies here and snack on mini candybars :)

  4. My parents aren't big on Halloween either, and every year they turn off most of the lights at their house to deter trick-or-treaters, but it never works! So they usually keep a very small stash of candy for persistent kids.
