Halloween Countdown 2017: Costume Capers Part 1!

I asked a few of my friends if they wouldn’t mind submitting photos and descriptions of costumes they wear presently, or costumes from their childhood for me to use on this blog. My friend Lynn graciously sent this along almost immediately:

Lynn D

Her description is as follows:

Me – Mid 60s Spring Show in Elementary School.   The height of the space race, but man had not yet walked on the moon.  Back when mom’s made costumes for shows like these.
I even remember the first verse of the song we sang:
Beep, beep. Here comes a satellite.
Beep, beep. And now it’s out of sight.
Beep, beep. Around the Earth it goes.
Beep, beep. And that’s how science grows.
Isn’t it adorable? I think the best part is the little wiggly antenna on top!!  Thank you, Lynn!

The WeirdCrest Halloween Countdown Begins.

Ah, yes. The more serious department stores are juuuuust now starting to put up orange and black planograms as the back-to-school stuff goes on clearance and the last of the neon summer crap is kicked out the door. The pop-up Halloween stores are hiring. The craft stores are loaded with witch and bat activity kits, and candle stores reek of pumpkin spice. It is the beginning of September, which, if you’re a Halloween nut like me, means the Halloween season has begun! Rejoice, my friends, the long wait is OVER!!!
