the ghosts of Halloween past
Not to be outdone by the (cute as a button) Big Finn, this small Canuck has decided to post her own bunny costume picture, plus a couple more images of me in my young and carefree years. Not that young, mind you. It was the early 80's and I was in my early 20's. Could life have been any better?
This first one was in my second year at the ol' alma mater. I lived at the student residence so when we weren't studying, we were partying. Can you believe it? Mausi was a party animal. My mother sewed those pink bunny ears for me when I had a part in a 6th grade musical and I kept them all those years knowing they'd come in handy some day.
Me (yes, I also had a white fluffy tail) and my partners in crime - Muffy the candy-striper and Buffalo Jill.
This one was taken a couple of years later when I was sharing an apartment with a couple of girlfriends. The 6ft tall Minnie Mouse didn't live with us, thank goodness. I'm the dead looking one on the right. As I recall, we took the bus downtown wearing those get ups. Those were the days.
And last but not least, me as a wrinkly pumpkin in the mid-80's. I think one was supposed to wear an inner tube inside of this costume, but really, would YOU walk around with an inner tube around your middle? Not sure who carved that sad looking specimen next to me.
We'll be carving much happier looking pumpkins this afternoon in celebration of Halloween tomorrow. Who knows, I may even dress up.
