Pam did a fun post recently about her past Halloween costumes. I don't have as many as she did, but I did have fun going through the archives and finding a few. This one was from the early days!
My friend Nancy found the pictures when going through things from her mom. She was my first friend and close to 70 years later, we still are!
Of course, it wasn't my first Halloween photo. My mom had an interesting sense of humor. I inherited that!
She made my costumes when I was a kid. I don't have photos of a lot of them, but I remember they were always fun.
Time passes. My friend Jerry and I dressed as a bag full of jelly beans and the great pumpkin for Halloween back for a college party in 1972!
Flash forward many moons. When you hang out with theatre people, you have to up your costuming game! Come as a favorite film/theatre person found me as Harpo Marx. I've rarely been quiet that long!
This photo is from a presentation to children on dental health during my time working in a dental clinic. I later wore the same garb for Halloween. Yes, that's my real hair. (And it's getting to look like that again if I don't get it cut soon!)
Then there was the flapper. This might be from a mystery party but I liked that costume. I could never wear it now!
You can't work for public television and not get into the product! I enjoyed Kermit -- for a while. But that head was heavy!
And the last time I dressed for Halloween, it was as Maleficent.
That was then. These days it's just a good thing to be able to pull together passing out the candy on Halloween night!
And there's nothing wrong with that -- or borrowed bat wings -- either!
