Happy Halloween, y'all! Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holidays if for no other reason than costumes. I love them, and have been known (as a full grown adult) to wear then even on non-Halloween occasions.  Here are some favorites, in chronological order.

Ballerina. 1984.

Fairy butterfly princess. 1986ish.

Rosie the Riveter. 2004/American Party.

Ghostbusters. 2004. We won second in an on campus costume contest!

Disco fever. 2008/Bay To Breakers.

Penguin. 2009/Birthday party.

Charlie Chaplin. 2009.

Golden Girls. 2010.

And with my deep-sea fisherman/Gordon's Fishstick Man. 2010.

Some favorites not pictured: MC Hammer, Troll doll, Janis Joplin, and a Velociraptor.  

No plans for a costume this year, though I really wanted to be Tina Turner. Ms. Turner really got me through some tough hiking days this summer, so I thought I'd honer her in costume... maybe next year.  Crazy that last year we were in Ecuador for Halloween. 

Have fun out there and get creative. And to our buddies on the East Coast, we hope you're safe and sound.
