Halloween Customes Past on Flashback Thursday

One of my favorite holidays growing up was Halloween; there was always a lot of excitement building up to that great unveiling of the Halloween costume.  I can remember hating to have keep trying on the costume, over and over again I would have stop playing and "come try this on."  But once all was done the transformation was well worth it.  As much as I was annoyed by this process they are some of my fondest flashback moments.

I carried on this time honored tradition with my children also; every year (until they became too big) we had a Halloween theme.  Often we would include my nieces and nephew to make the them even more fun.  So with this great holiday rapidly approaching I will be sharing some of my favorites (both mine and the kids) over the next few Flashback posts.  Funny how time flies... a nostalgia...

This is a terrific collection--what memories, indeed! I want to thank you for including my vintage costume pattern!

It's amazing how those cheaply-made commercial costumes have survived--and how much I groove on seeing them! Growing up, I remember scorning them and feeling sorry for the kids who had to wear them, instead of (like you!) having a mom to sew for them, or a big brother or sister to help them contrive one of their own. Loved your photo, too! I'll be sharing the blog!

I remember for Halloween I was a ghost, and yup, it was just a white bedsheet!
