Tricks and Treats Circa '74


This fetching butterfly ensemble, designed and modeled by third grade me, explains why I do not make Bob's Halloween costumes.

  1. That is awesome.. I dont quite remember '74 but was indeed alive for it and about 2 years old. And no doubt being dressed in a costume completely against my will by my well meaning parents.

  2. Well at least you were prepared lest it rain...

    I lived in the sticks and never did trick or treat so escaped the whole halloween/costume thing, in any case I'd have been far too shy to take part!

  3. Darn! I wish I had a picture of the UHAUL box that somehow morphed into a Rubik's Cube costume circa 1980. . . .

  4. "Tricks and Treats" ... love it.

    I've made my own costume this year. I've made a Jedi costume. I would like to think it'd get the Bob seal of approval...

  9. On the contrary, I think this is quite creative. But is that red vinyl? How very 70s. :)
