Ghost of Halloween Past

1982 was the year. I was 6 years old. Cute, blonde hair, blue eyes, sweet as can be... It was Halloween. I was so excited to be a sunflower that year. My costume was gonna be da bomb.com. Back then we lived out in the boondocks, so we usually went trick or treating at the mall. It was safe, indoors, and always, always busy. I had my jack-o-lantern bucket and was pumped.
It wasn't until I was in the center of the mall that I realized....

I had a freakin' tutu on my head!!

I was mortified and positive everyone was staring at me. I think I spent more time in the mall bathroom than trick or treating that nite...

One year, I dressed up as an eggplant. Or should I say, someone dressed me up as an eggplant. I promise it was more embarrassing than your sunflower!

I think you look cute.:)

MommyJ said...

Wait... are you wearing a leotard?

Camille said...

Hahaha!! That is so funny. Ah the things our parents did to us when we were young. I think you looked cute though!

I bet that was the most original
costume in the mall. What a great idea. I may use that idea on my youngest daughter. Not sure if she would look as cute as you did.

Oh man Tori, that picture is one of the funniest pictures I've seen in some time. I mean, cute funny, of course.

Forget the tutu. I'm more interested in the black face.

I was under the impression that once you go black...

or maybe the head tutu.

But too cute either way.

Oh, the way some parents torture their kids with costumes. Yours is one of the funniest.

At least you can tell your kids not to complain about their costumes because, 'when I was a kid I...'
