Favorite Halloween Costumes

When I was young, my favorite costume was a black cat costume my mother made for me, complete with tail and hat with ears and with whiskers drawn on with an eyeliner pencil.

When my children were young, I created a few special costumes. One year, I made this Beetle Juice costume for my son. He was a pirate one year and a ghost another year. I made a clown costume for my daughter (with an adult sized one to match for me) and another year she wore this wonderful hand-me-down from a friend, a big bird costume made out of yellow fun fur. These are a few of the memorable Halloween costumes I recall.

Just adorable! It reminds me of the time I made a crow costume for my boyfriend & I was a scarecrow.
