An old friend and her husband attended my Halloween dinner in costume. 

She's 7 months pregnant and decided to use her belly to her best advantage. It made the perfect base for a certain famous beagle we all love.

Hubby was Charlie Brown.

Vintage picture of a kid in a Creature From The Black Lagoon costume. 


Many more photographs to be seen on Swapatorium's Halloween flickr set.

(via Frankenstein's Fun House)

SPEAKING of vintage Halloween pictures, I added a few from my childhood at the very bottom of the About page. Yes, that's me with the balloons in her hair. And the woman in the other picture with balloons on her head is my mother.

AND many of you have heard the story about me spray painting the tombstone on the wall for my Grade 4 Halloween party. Well now you can see a picture of that too (the link is in my bio on the About page).

Goblin King Costume

Jareth the Goblin King Costume
I think this might be the coolest kid's costume I've ever seen. I know I would have loved to dress up as Jareth, King of the Goblins when I was 4 years old.

The fact that it's the photographer's little girl (and not a little boy) makes it even better. There is hope for the younger generation.

I'd still dress up as him, but the idea of putting on leggings makes me a bit twitchy.
