BACK IN THE DAY

Once upon a time, many years ago (actually it was 36 years ago - 1977!) your faithful scribe and his lovely SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) used to costume themselves for Halloween parties too.  (See yesterday's post)

This was our getup for a party at the BRD's house that Halloween.  Both costumes were made by the dark-haired lass in the photo.



That was probably our dressiest of Halloweens.  A few years later SWMBO only used her make-up skills with which to frighten the little trick-or-treaters who dared to ring our bell.


That alluring smile hid a darker side of the wretch.


As for me, I have to use the techniques of the computer to make myself fearsome.

Be careful you two, the idea is to scare other people! If you get any scarier, you'll finish up hiding from each other.

So who was first? You, or Charles Manson?

Charlie has a few years on me.

Gee, we do that most of the time even without makeup or costumes.

Bruce, the could have used you in the Harry Potter movies. SWMBO look great.

Your oldie but goodie shot is a classic.

You've made an excellent argument for keeping my doors locked on Halloween. Take care and don't get tricked too badly.

Love SWMBO's dress in that first picture - I'd wear it for real :)

She has a knack.

Our neighbor, Del, took the picture.

We're going to hide out and avoid the kiddies this year.

Yes, I think my gypsy looks quite fetching. I just told her about your comment and she said she wore it to one other party but that was it.
