I actually don't seem to have many photos of me in Halloween costumes. I can't even remember most of my costumes. I do remember when I was in 4th grade going as a "go-go girl", with the miniskirt, boots, and glitter ball earrings. I carried a pillowcase that year and had to come back and dump it out at one time because it was too full to carry. I also remember running around the neighborhood without parentals since back then it was a safe thing to do. Pretty much every house was decorated and giving out candy. I'm sure adults in each house were watching out for us youngsters.
In high school for many years I dressed up and went trick or treating for UNICEF which was a big deal in those days. For many years I also used to borrow my moms costumes because she came up with some awesome stuff (Mom, next year we have to post those photos!). I wish I had photos of me and my three girlfriends as The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This was back before they were popular and I had to bring out one of my comics to show my girls what the heck I was talking about when I said I wanted us to be The Turtles (the costumes were lost on the crowd and we became known as the four green girls that night).
I hope you've enjoyed my month of Halloween posts. I started it last year thinking I wouldn't be able to fill a full month, but, thankfully, the Halloween fun stuff just keeps coming. May you have a wonderful day today even if you end up going to the movies to escape the holiday.
And if you just really need a Halloween fix today, tune in to Slacker Radio where they are streaming Halloween Radio. Not only will you get typical Halloween songs (I loved hearing the theme from Disney's Haunted Mansion this morning), but you'll get songs like The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash or Vampire Blues by Neil Young (The Time Warp just came on!). Just be aware that some of the songs may not be safe for work (or little ones). You don't want to have to try to explain what having "a monster in your pants" means. To listen go here.
