Happy Halloween!

It’s the spookiest day of the year. Beware of ghosts and goblins and other monsters we fear… The witches will be riding and the skeletons will jeer. Happy Halloween to all, it’s time to spread old Hallows cheer!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Today I thought I’d share a couple photographs of my favorite childhood Halloween costumes…



What was your favorite childhood costume?Β 

Happy haunting!

XO Lauren

P.S. I’ll reveal my Halloween costumes from this year tomorrow…

    It would definately have to be my sister and I homemade cat costumes! They were the best!

  • Sarah Heckle

    haha, love these! Growing up, my mom always made my costumes. My favorite was probably my 50s girl poodle skirt — I’ll have to dig out the photos!

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN LAUREN!! I love your childhood costumes! They are so adorable:) My favorite costume from childhood would probably be when I was Madonna. I don’t have any photos though:( But it was my favorite! Thanks for sharing your photos!

  • Cherie LaFlamme

    Happy Halloween Lauren! I love your costumes — I was also a genie one year, but it was so cold here that I had to wear a white turtleneck under my costume! Ugh!

    Speaking of which, it’s super cold here today too! Hence the coat and my cold weather accessories instead of a Halloween costume – http://eyeblinkfashion.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/ring-my-bell-shaped-hat/

    I’m pretty sure I was a princess or fairy every single year. I’ve been a girlie girl for as long as I can remember!

    One year, when I was 4 or5, I was very sick and my mom wasn’t sure I’d be able to go trick-or-treating. We had just moved to a new city, in a new state and she didn’t want me to miss the opportunity to trick-or-treat. She took me to the doctor and he said “”as long as you don’t let her walk she can go trick-or-treating.”” So my mom wracked her brian trying to figure out how to have me go trick-or-treating without having to walk everywhere and without having to carry me since she had a bad back. She nearly gave up. But then the brilliance happened!!! She went to a hardware store and asked if it would be possible to borrow one of their rolling flatbed carts and a crate. The store manager was all too happy to ablige once he found out that it was for a little girl who was too sick to go trick-or-treating. Then she put the crate on the flatbed and covered it with a pillow and a large piece of gray felt. Next she put various shells all around the felt covered crate. Then she called me to the garage (where the flatbed was hiding) and showed it to me. “”What’s this for Mommy?”” I asked. “”It’s so you can go trick-or-treating baby. You are going as The Little Mermaid!!!”” You couldn’t have imagined my excitment. So, for my actual costume, my mom made a mermaid tail out of shimmery green fabric and made it so I’d have a hard time walking unless I absolutely needed to (which was good cuz I was squirmy). Then she found a nude child-size full-body leotard and sewed a purple fabric shell bra to it. Then we dyed my hair red using a demi-permanant dye (it washed out in a few days). And that was it, I was able to go trick-or-treating by becoming Ariel from The Little Mermaid and my sister dressed as Flounder. The best part was we won Second Place in the local costume contest :)

    I had a total of three halloween costumes this year! If I went out tonight I’d have four but I have a huge Biology test tomorrow so unfortunately that is a no go. I like to wear a different Halloween costume every time I go out within the same year.
