My favorite costume…

My siblings have each asked me to tell them my favorite Halloween costume I've ever had the opportunity to wear.  I think it shocks them to hear that I used to love dressing up for Halloween… I'm so resistant to it now.  I had a late start on Halloween…. I didn't go trick or treating for the first time until I was seven.  I was a witch my first two years: (complete with the smelly green makeup…)

However, my FAVORITE costume I've ever worn is the flapper girl costume the eBay Queen made for me when I was nine.  It was made of gold fabric (although I'm not sure what type…) it was adorned with gold fringe, and I think I carried a black feather boa.  I loved that dress, and thought I was so cool when I wore it.  (See the pink dress on the far right?)   

Since then, I've been a bee keeper (I wore khaki pants, a tan shirt, and gloves, with a fishing hat covered in tulle) to match baby J's bee outfit, and we were also Hershey's kisses another year. 

I don't dress up anymore, but I do love looking at other people's Halloween costumes.  My siblings are always pretty creative in their choices… J is going as a nerd (actually, he's not dressing up, that's just his everyday costume ;) ), A is a peacock this year, C is Mario from Super Mario Brothers, and Q is going as Ben 10…  If I can swipe some pictures from the eBay Queen, I'll post them for all of you to see!  xo
