Vintage Halloween Link-Up on Friday!

Halloween, 1993

I’m the one in the fabulous vintage dress, leopard hat and real fur stole – all of which I bought at a yard sale. PROOF I was thrifting WAY before it was cool. My costume is “movie star”. My elementary school BFF is Tiger Lily, my little sister is Alice in Wonderland and my brother is the fire fighter and also dying of embarrassment I just posted this picture of him on the internet.

I bet you have a picture just like this in a photo album somewhere too.

Amy from BabyBabyLemon and I are hosting a linky on Friday for all your vintage Halloween cuteness – costumes, pumpkin carving, hayrides, whatevs. Call your mom tomorrow and see if she’ll scan in some photos you KNOW she’s got in that album on the bottom shelf. (Confidential to my mom: Can you see if there are any more Halloween costume pics in those albums on the bottom shelf? Love you!) Bonus points for the first person in a cardboard box-turned robot costume.

See you Friday!

p.s. If you want to participate but don’t have a blog, I’d be happy to post your photo here. Just email it to

    Hmm, I got box to telephone, box to stop light and box to box of wipes. No robots, sorry.

  2. You look exactly the same. Also, when you took that picture, I was in college. Now I feel old.

    Sweet jeebus. I recognized you right away (you were so precious! And you really do look like an old movie star) … but I swear the kid in front is Evan. Strong genes much?

    It was weird to scroll through my google reader this morning and see my face! It was totally fun though!

    This is great! I love seeing that old photo. I will look for more today, just as you requested. Not sure I have any of me though. Your Grandmother made the best costumes in our neighborhood.

    Ahhahahahaha! Just you wait to see what I pull out of the old family album. My standard “parents didn’t buy costumes and waited until the last minute to figure something out for me” duds. Of course I also have a picture of me from middle school when I bought my own darn costume and had my mom whore up my face because I was Isis. :P
