Happy Halloween!

November 1, 2007 Sarah Coggins

If you’ve come from SITS Girls Blogtober, welcome to a “throwback” post as well as a Throwback Thursday Halloween photo from my childhood circa 1985.

Thought I would share a few fun photos from our Halloween decor. To answer last night’s question, water noodles, pvc piping and zip ties plus a few creative costumes make great Halloween mannequins. My husband crafted 3 for our home – pumpkin man, Jason and ninja boy. We had every reaction from the kids and parents – nothing to pure fear. Ninja boy was set up by our door as though he was trick-or-treating. One little girl turned to him to show him what candy she got. 😀

Today’s 2ps challenge:
Share a Halloween memory you have as a child.

The first memories that came to mind when I saw today’s blog challenge were costume related:

Halloween 1985: bride costumeThe white dress and veil in the photo on the right have stuck in my mind as probably my favorite childhood costume. I remember the cotton material with little eyelets and how fancy I thought it was.

My second recollection is of the plastic costumes my sister & I had in later years. Remember the ones that were a vinylish material – almost like coveralls except they tied in the back behind your neck? And each had a plastic face mask with an elastic band. I can still smell that distinctive odor they had.

    You know, I never was a Halloween bride - I think I missed out.
