Halloween is a holiday dear to this theater geek’s heart. I adore planning, assembling, and wearing costumes. Here’s some photos of my costumes from the last several years.
I needed to incorporate my crutch into my costume, so I decided to be Tiny Tim from A Christmas Carol. God bless us, everyone!
Laura Palmer from Twin Peaks. “She’s dead, wrapped in plastic…”
The killer bunny from Monty Python & The Holy Grail (Kurt went as the dead knight).
Disco Queen (Kurt is Mouth from The Goonies)
Alice in Chains
I was a roller derby girl (foreshadowing!) and Kurt was a baby.
Chun-Li from Streetfighter
I wish I had digital photos of some of my favorite childhood costumes. Each fall, my mom would bring us kids to the fabric store, where we’d page through the patterns and pick out what we wanted to be for Halloween. She would sew amazing costumes for us that were always a hit at school. Some of my costumes included a rabbit, Care Bear (complete with big furry head!), and pioneer (during my Laura Ingalls Wilder phase.) I can definitely trace my love of costumes and dressing up to those early days, waking up so excited to put on my outfit for school and trick-or-treating.
Have a happy Halloween, everyone!
