My Favorite Costume

I've been slacking in my goal to post Halloween posts everyday 'til Oct. 31. My bad. In my defense, I've been putting in 14 hour work days and had to write two papers. Give me a break. :)

Although the picture below isn't very good (it was taken in '79, I believe) this witch costume has always been my favorite. My mother made it for me (she also made my brother's vampire costume). Weren't those the best costumes? The ones that mom made after much begging and pleading? The costumes we got to see created from a simple bolt of black fabric. I don't have kids and I don't sew, but if I had or did either I'd like to imagine that I'd make their costumes. As it stands, if my hypothetical child asked me to make his/her costume I'd probably hand then a garbage bag and tell them to go as trash. :)

Sad thing is..I've tried the trash bag thing. Doesn't go over very well with all the mainstream costumes out there. Darn Walmart this time of year!!
