It’s October. Pumpkin season. Candy season.
It’s time to break out the Caramel Apple pops, candy corn, and pumpkin galore! Pull out those spiderwebs and drape them EVERYWHERE…bust out a ghost or two, and start watching some scary movies (this will be a post coming up later!).
October is also “Come-Up-With-The-Greatest-Halloween-Costume-Ever” season, and I was trying to think of what I would be this upcoming Halloween (I think a phone call home asking for a certain costume sitting at the bottom of a plastic box at Papa’s shop might be in order).
So of course, I started thinking about different things I’ve been over the years for Halloween, and I’ve created a list of what I remember:
- Pumpkin (Maybe? Not sure about this one. Maybe my mommy will comment and correct me)
- Alice (from Alice in Wonderland. My brother was the 2 of Spades card that year).
- Belle (from Beauty and the Beast. My brother was the beast and I have memories of my mom and my aunt debating about possibly putting temporary dye in my blonde hair…and deciding against it…so I was a blonde Belle)
- Karen Brewer (from the Babysitter’s Little Sister Series. I thought it was a great costume idea. Other people didn’t understand)
- Peter Pan
- An Elf (not Buddy)
- Renaissance Princess
- Renaissance Peasant
- Pirate Wench
- St. Pauli’s Girl
Out of the 23 Halloweens I have been alive, I can remember 21 of my costumes…I’d say that’s not bad.
What have you been for Halloween?
