Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone had a sugar-filled, ghoulish good time today! We had desk trick or treating at my job, so I bought some Paydays for the occasion, and have nommed several today.

I haven't really celebrated Halloween in a couple years (I lie. I went to a party last year. I dressed up as Princess Fiona and won Cutest Costume!).

Was going to paint my skin green, but it wasn't working for me.
The other day, I was at Target with my mom, and we were perusing costumes, and it made me think of the costumes I had growing up. When I was a kid, my mom made my costumes, and spoiled me. She put so much detail into them, and I wish I had pics floating around online to show you, but you'll just have to take my word for it. I've been several Disney Characters: Cinderella, Snow White, Tinkerbell, Princess Jasmine, Pocahontas, the Clopin from Hunchback of Notre Dame.

In high school, my costumes started to get a little less Disney, a little more traditional. I was a cat one year, Titania from A Midsummer Night's Dream another year (And was robbed to another Titania for Best Costume! [Theatre Kids]).
Ever After was big that year, so that's what my sister was from, I think.
When I got to college, I went on a limb and was more Ghoulish. Observe.

Mary, Winifred and Sarah Sanderson of Hocus Pocus~2006
Fairy and Goddess~2008
My favorite, which I can't seem to find a picture of, was when I was working at Horseshoe Casino back in 2010, and I dressed up as a Twilight Fan. I wore a raglan T-Shirt that said "Vampire Baseball League," straightened my hair, put two multi-colored streaks in my hair, wore my contacts, had my sister put bite marks on my neck and my new nickname from the dealers was "Twilight Barbie." I got great tips that night, though.

Thanks for taking this walk down memory lane with me. This was fun! Hope you have a safe, fun Halloween!

What are your favorite costumes from years past?
