Heather’s Halloween History

I am crazy for Halloween. I love any excuse to dress up in costume, so Halloween is my perfect holiday. I’ve been framing old photos from Halloweens past (I have a table full of these pictures on display in my house), and I thought it would be fun to share my favorites.

  • 1981 – Ballerina 1 of 15
    1981 - Ballerina
    Coincidentally, also the last time I looked good in tights. Can you even handle my bowl haircut?
  • 1982 – Penguin 2 of 15
    1982 - Penguin
    I wouldn't mind this costume now, it looks very slimming.
  • 1984 – Witch 3 of 15
    1984 - Witch
    It's not very original, but it's pretty cute and GOOD GOD THOSE SHOES! I can't see anything else now.
  • 1985 – Hula Girl 4 of 15
    1985 - Hula Girl
    I had a whole choreographed routine set to "Going to the Hukilau," that I still remember to this day. If you buy me enough drinks, I will show it to you.
  • 1986 – Cheerleader 5 of 15
    1986 - Cheerleader
    I give my mom props for waiting until age seven to put me and my twin brother in matching costumes, although a cheerleader and a football player could not have been further from our personalities.
  • 1987 – Clown 6 of 15
    1987 - Clown
    Obviously this picture was taken seconds before Superman defeated the evil clown.
  • 1995 – Scarlet O’Hara 7 of 15
    1995 - Scarlet O'Hara
    Remember that scene in Gone With The Wind where Zorro rescues Scarlet from the Atlanta Fire? That's my favorite part of the movie.
  • 2001 – Surfer 8 of 15
    2001 - Surfer
    Pro tip: If you wear a wetsuit anywhere but in the water, you will SWEAT YOUR BRAINS OUT. Ask me how I know.
  • 2002 – Nurse 9 of 15
    2002 - Nurse
    At the party I wore this to, a guy came up to me and said, "Are you really a nurse, because I really am a doctor. Do you want me to take your temperature?" Worst pickup line ever. But I still let him buy me a drink, duh.
  • 2003 – Catholic School Girl 10 of 15
    2003 - Catholic School Girl
    Perhaps the most generic couples costume ever.
  • 2004 – Britney Spears 11 of 15
    2004 - Britney Spears
  • 2005 – Gangster 12 of 15
    2005 - Gangster
    I'm wearing a cowboy hat. It's like I didn't even try that year.
  • 2006 – Deal or No Deal Suitcase Girl 13 of 15
    2006 - Deal or No Deal Suitcase Girl
    For some reason, I couldn't talk Mike into shaving his head and going as Howie Mandel.
  • 2008 – The Flintstones 14 of 15
    2008 - The Flintstones
    We threw a Halloween party for our daughter Madeline's first birthday, so obviously we really had to bring it when it came to our costumes.
  • 2010 – Glee 15 of 15
    2010 - Glee
    Annie's Sue Sylvester impression is uncanny.

Our family costume this year is amazing. I can’t wait!
