Your Take: Your Favorite Halloween Costume!

In

Every Halloween is a new opportunity to become someone (or something!) new. We asked the Growing Bolder community to share their favorite Halloween costume memories. Some folks even shared photos!

“Wondering where I left my broom?” – Janic Doxsee Davis
“I was the Dead Bride and that is my Groom.” – Sandy Rolon Navas

One year my husband and I went as prisoners of love. We got solid color pjs, or scrubs (it’s been awhile) and spray painted stripes. He used a plastic ball and added a chain. Our numbers were 60 and 9. Lost him this year, I sure miss his humor.

“I made this for my grandson in 1993. It has a long tail that swished back and forth behind him as he walked. It was hysterical!” – Betty Ann Jackson Nanstiel

One year I dressed up as Ruth & my 4yo son dressed up as David the shepard boy. I made his costume from fake fur. It was for a church Halloween activity. He’s 41 now so that was a good while ago!
