Let me bring you back to 2008: Aidan decided that he wanted to be Pikachu from Pokemon (the equivalent to Dungeons and Dragons to me). I found the costume online for $50 and assured him that we would have a great time making our own get-up. As you can tell, it turned out exactly like the store-bought costume. And Eileen — the diva who wore princess gowns and ballerina tutus 24/7 for six straight years — insisted on using a “vintage” nappy monkey costume that we had in the dress up box to be Queen Kong. Fortunately, we trick or treated with a large group, so no one knew that those were my kids!
Here are some other spooky memories from Halloweens of yesteryear. (Click on photo for full view. There’s some strange cropping going on!)
What was your most embarrassing costume when you were a kid?
