Happy Halloween!


Me (Princess), My Oldest Bro (Football Player),
My Sis (Daffy), My Baby Bro (Devil) - circa 1977-78


Daffy and Devil started out being costumes for us older kids. When we outgrew them, they were passed down to the younger ones. Each year after Halloween, they were put back into the boxes they came in from the store. My parents then put them away until the next year. We wore those costumes for years!

I'd forgotten about those costumes and their masks. I remember having a ball but sweating my butt off even if it was cold. LOL

Oh I remember those costumes! They used to come in boxes with clear plastic on the lids where you could see the mask...and the simple clothing was folded up behind the mask. We had a few costumes like that in our house (although not in the late 70's...), but I can't remember what characters they were.

Meari,
Thank you for the memories. I had the exact same costume. I will have to find my picture of me, my brother and sister. I remember those days very well and looked forward to getting out our boxes and putting our costumes on.

I had forgotten about those plastic masks. I think I had the princess one myself. Thanks for taking me back to fun times!
