Throwback Thursday: Halloween 1976-1977


Last Thursday, I decided to revisit some of my earliest Halloween costumes in a heartwarming and hilarious Throwback Thursday post. This week, I want to keep things going with a quick Halloween visit to the years 1976 and 1977...

Halloween, 1976
After two years of trick-or-treating as some sort of witch, my parents finally got with the times. For 1976, I got my first Ben Cooper costume...



Umm, unfortunately... it was some kind of panda. With bright pink lips. And flowers on the shirt. And a picnic tablecloth for pants. Getting closer, but geez, mom...


Halloween, 1977
1977 was finally the year that my parents got their act together. A proper Ben Cooper costume for Halloween! And for boys even!!



Just look at it! A ghost! Spooky! I'm not sure if it's supposed to be Casper, but just look at that evil grin! 

And the only thing that could possibly top that costume would be those incredible jack-o-lanterns on the table behind me. Soooo good! And that weird brown fern. Now THIS is a proper Halloween photo from my past!!


Come back again next Thursday as we move further up the timeline, checking out Halloween 1978 and 1979. Two more classics that are sure to dazzle, amaze and horrify!!
