I actually didn't wear a costume my first Halloween, and feel like I suffered a little inside because of it. Yes, I was barely 2 weeks old for my first Halloween, but I'm surprised my small self was able to move on past that. I can promise even if one of my children is a tiny baby on Halloween I will dress them up! (At least in a "My First Halloween" onesie. It's possible right?)
This first Halloween I actually dressed up as a ballerina. I guess at only a year old my parents couldn't quite tell I wasn't really ballerina material.
Most of my costumes that I remember growing up were of Disney Princesses. I think I cam close to being everyone. Let's see I was Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Belle, Jasmine, Ariel, and even Tinkerbelle. I guess I missed out on being Cinderella though.
Skipping a few years ahead to Junior year of college. I didn't have any type of costume, and I pulled this together about 2 hours before we left.
I was really proud of my costume Senior year of college. It think its still probably one of my favorites of my more recent costumes.
My first year of grad school was another last minute costumes. I borrowed a pair of horns and a picture, wore a red tank top and black skirt. Voila! I was a devil!
My second year of grad school I went back to my childhood roots, and once again was a Disney princess.
Last year I tried my best to get a little clever.
I hope you've all enjoyed this flashback through my Halloween's past. And if you're looking for more costume inspiration, or just costumes in general, head of to Kelly's Korner to check more out!
