  3. Halloween wasn't big in NZ when I was a kid, trick or treating is only really gaining popularity now, but I once went to a Halloween bday party as a red devil and my face was painted all red except for black circles around my eyes. Pretty tame, but still my fav since I was 9!!

  16. i'm sure i had some favorites as a kid. my mom made me a clown costume that i still have and my girls have worn. but i honestly have to say that my recent pirate costume is my favorite. i was going for the elizabeth swann (POTC) look and i convinced my mom to make a long wine-colored velvet vest for me. i ordered a custom muslin pirate-shirt from ebay. added brown pants and tall black boots, a leather shoulder sash with a place to stash my (official disney POTC) pirate sword. haha ... yep, i refuse to grow up and halloween is the one holiday i can really act like a kid and get away with it! ;)

  38. My favorite costume was a sorceress when I was 15 in 10th grade. I wore my mom's 10th HS reunion dress from the '70s, which was a black empire waisted floor length dress with a deep neckline, long slim sleeves, and black & gold roman key metallic trim along the neck, wrists, & hem. I put a slit up one side of the dress and wore plain black pumps with shiny pantyhose. My makeup was smokey & dramatic & my permed hair (it was the late '80s) was pulled all to one side of my head in a cascade of shoulder length curls. I loved that costume so much and my only regrets are that I never got pictures of me in it and the boy I had a crush on didn't see me in it.

  128. My mom used to make a lot of our costumes. One year, when I was 7 or 8, I was a present. I wore purple sweats and my mom covered a cardboard box with silver wrapping paper. She made holes for my head and arms, added a big purple ribbon, and made a matching bow for me to wear. I couldn't really get in and out of it, and couldn't fit in my desk, so I had to sit in a chair in the back of the classroom all day. It was memorable, to say the least!
