October 20-24, 2014

What’s a Halloween costume you wore as a child?

I wore a few. No matter what costume it was though, it always had the plastic face with cutout eyes and mouth, and cheaply made outfits to match (usually some sort of plastic too that tied around my clothes). 🙂

I remember being a fairy princess one year. Though we were poor, this one particular year my mom bought a little extra to go with my costume. I walked around thinking I was really a princess. 🙂 I had a glittery ‘magic wand’ with all kinds of colorful ribbons hanging off it. My mom also bought me pink plastic shoes with a ‘heel’ so I could feel all grown up. I must’ve been all of five or six. Yup, I was living large that particular Halloween; I made out pretty good in the candy department too, if I recall correctly. 🙂

What about you guys?
