Imagine my shock when I found this photograph from 1986. There I was: a scantily-clad belly dancer. I'm not sure what my sister is. Any guesses?
In 2009, something drove me to put on a plastic bag and fill it with balloons. I called myself a "bag of jelly beans."
My mom claimed she made up the idea. Sure...Oh wait, dammit no! I found this revealing photograph from 1985. The hat really made this costume.
My senior year of high school I found a short, sequined dress in my sister's closet. I decided to go as a lady of the night (someone who exchanges certain favors for money). I think I really fit the part and could have made a pretty penny out on the streets, if I don't say so myself.
Later, as I got to the end of the box of photos, I learned I had merely stolen my sister's Winter Formal look from four years earlier. She classed the dress up with some black pantyhose and earrings.
After looking at all of the pictures, I now know my only options this year are clown or bunny. Happy Halloween!
