Very cute. I remember those hard plastic masks (and, interestingly, the smell of them)! Aw, makes me nostalgic...

Melinda said...

Love the costumes!

Jenni said...

Rachael--I remember that smell too.

Jean-- I remember being a ghost most of the time using old sheets, and Mom sewing a couple of costumes.

Melinda-- The costumes are fun and nostalgic.

I was always dressed up as a "hobo" as it was called back then...

Oh Mom...why ya gotta make me homeless!?!? LOL

One year...they did buy me the Wonder Woman outfit, I tried to fly off the roof. Oops.

Jennifer said...

Fabulous costume! I remember being a black cat, a gumball machine (complete with lots of little balloons), and a ghost. Happy Halloween!

The best costume, in my opinion, was the one made from the green lawn and leaf trash bag, a pair of tights, a tee shirt and an elf hat. You were about 11 years old and it was your own creation. Good memories have been stirred.
Thanks,
Mom

Jennifer- Wow a gumball machine. That's fancy!

Jean- Now that I think of it, I was a hobo once. Probably a hobo ghost...

Mom- I think it was a black garbage bag and I was a punk rocker.

I have to tell you...that mask is pretty creepy!! It would give me nightmares! (I'm pretty scared of masks in general though).
Love how you brought out the old pictures! :-)

That picture could be of Rechelle and me. I was always the princess and she was/is the witch. How funny is it that the cape has the picture of the witch on it?
