Halloween Costumes Over the Years

I love Halloween. It is my favorite holiday. It reminds of me my childhood and a lot of happy memories. 

Plus I love all things creepy, spooky, witchy and fun so Halloween and I fit perfectly together.

Lately I've been thinking about Halloweens past and costumes I've had over the years.

I have a few favorite Halloween costumes and a few that were memorable because they were bad.

I can remember one of my first costumes- Wonder Woman. It was one of those awful plastic/vinyl costumes with the cheap plastic masks. You know those horrible costumes that ripped and fell apart before you were done trick or treating. If you were a kid trick or treating in the late 70s early 80s you know what I'm talking about. They were ugly, hot and scary.

Today's costumes are much better and sexier. A lot sexier. Have you seen the wide variety of sexy adult costumes available?

Pure Costumes has Wonder Woman costumes. This one is very nice. Of course not for a child. 

It is the The Justice League Wonder Woman Adult Costume and includes headband, cape, leotard, belt, lasso, bracelets and boot tops. 

I remember after that Wonder Woman debacle (and me crying because it fell apart) my mother made my costumes for the next several years.

For like three years in a row I was a ghost. The costume kind of looked like this Classic Ghost costume for kids. She made it from a sheet and pillowcase. I loved it.

I can remember using some of my mom's old clothes and buying a cheap felt witch hat and being a witch for several years too.

The effect was nothing compared to the costumes available today. 

Like this . I would have loved something sexy like this. 

By the time I was a teen commercially available costumes had become a little better. One year I was pirate wench. It was a little sexy. I would have preferred something more like this wench  which is brand new for 2012.

My senior year my mom made a belly dancer costume for me. Similar to this one though mine was red and gold.

In college I could not find the vampire costume I wanted so I designed it and had a woman sew it for me.

Halloween costumes have come along way over the past couple decades.
