Boo!

The last Halloween party I attended was in 1984, and finding a suitable costume was something of a challenge. For some reason I could never figure out, the man in my life (the magician I mentioned here) was hellbent on going to the party dressed as a priest. He'd made up his mind about that months before and wouldn't even consider any other costume.

I wanted to coordinate my costume with his, but I didn't want to go as a nun, the obvious choice. After thinking about it for a few days, I could only come up with one idea that might work. He agreed to it, we enlisted the aid of a friend, and all that was left to do was improvise our costumes.

We were a little concerned that our choice might offend someone at the church-sponsored party, but it turned out that they all had a good sense of humor. In fact, we won first prize.

Now, tell me what you think we were. (Hint: We were disorderly in this photo.)


And have a happy Halloween!

  3. Welcome, Holly. If there was a prize, you'd win it.

    Sunflower, it would have been too hard to dance in a nun costume.

    Patsy, son, sun, PUN.

  6. Congrats! Great idea and great costumes. I love it when people come up original costumes....had a friend who wears devil's horns and a blue dress (Devil with the blue dress on) and one who wears top and bottom white sweats, with trash taped and pinned all over her (white trash).

  8. I'm amazed I didn't have to cheat and look at the comments to guess what you represented. For me, the ghost was the tipoff. I was wondering what the heck you were supposed to be!
