|Me as a witch in 1984.|
|Me as She-Ra in 1986. One of my absolute favorite costumes ever.|
Sometimes I'd make costumes completely on my own, with no intervention from my mother:
|This is what happens when you leave a not-quite-8-year-old to her own devices. In case you couldn't guess, I was a Martian in 1990.|
And sometimes, your Catholic school decides that the only way students are allowed to wear costumes for Halloween is if they dress up as saints:
|Here I am as Kateri Tekakwitha in 1993. |
I designed this costume based on illustrations from a biography of her, and my mom sewed it.
|That's my good friend Jency as Harry Potter on the left. |
And that is definitely not an alcoholic beverage in my hand 1 month before my 21st birthday.
I kind of cheated in 2007. I didn't actually MAKE my costume so much as cobble it together from things I found in Halloween stores and things I already owned. The skirt and boots were already in my wardrobe. I bought the wig, pitchfork red fishnets and t-shirt.
|You can't see it in this picture, but my t-shirt says "I feel a sin coming on." Classy, I know. ;-)|
Doctor Who fans will probably guess that my costume is Amelia Pond. My husband already dresses like The Doctor most of the time, so his costume mostly involved updating his sonic screwdriver to the 11th Doctor's, since until this week he only had the 10th Doctor's. We'll be attending a Halloween party this weekend, so expect pictures before Sunday's over. :-)
Are you going to any Halloween parties? What are you going as?
