League of Extraordinary Bloggers - Halloween!

This week's assignment for the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is simply "Halloween". The League is tasked with photographing how their home town celebrates Halloween. Unfortunately I've been incredibly busy every weekend! I haven't really had the opportunity to enjoy low key fall days out and about which makes me sad as I love fall! Anyway, I didn't want to miss out on yet another League assignment so I figured a fun alternative would be to share some old photos of me on Halloweens long past.....

So this is my first Halloween ever and mom saw fit to dress her two sons up in super masculine costumes. The eldest a bumble bee and me a daisy.....thanks Mom! It did set up this photo 31 years later where my niece (big brother's daughter) continued the tradition of bumble bee costumes. She, however, is as cute as can bee!....see what I did there?

Ok, so Mom redeemed herself big time in 1985 with these home made Batman and Superman costumes! I was a Superman fan for as long as I can remember. Super Powers figures were huge and my brother and I had to be our favorite heroes!

A pair of clowns! I guess Mom figured we were a pair of goofballs to begin with...why not dress them up accordingly ;)

My brother and I were on a serious Voltron kick! I'm in blue. I love some of the other store bought costumes my friends have on. The Rambo on the left is pretty epic. Sucks it got cut off!

Late 80s/ early 90s
I can't be sure what year this was to be honest. My best guess would be 89 or 90. My brother has made the obvious transition into a black suited Batman with 1989's Batman having been released. I am a pirate with a pretty sweet stache!

Early 90s
I gotta say this costume was pretty bad ass! I am Frankenstein and my brother was Dracula. I couldn't find a photo of the two us. This will have to do. Grand-mom doesn't seem too thrilled about all of this!

So that's it for me. I couldn't find anymore photos though I'm sure there are loads more buried in the shed.  Be sure to scope out these other posts from around the League!


  1. I wish I had pics of myself at Halloween for sure!

    1. I wish I had more! Ha. Guess I can't complain.

  2. Cool you shared these old school pics. That pirate costume was pretty awesome!

  3. These are some fun old pictures, thanks for sharing!

    By the way, in the 5th pictures, that is the weirdest Dracula costume I have ever seen!
