|My Halloween costume in 1955|
My relatives loved a party and I found these great photographs of a costume parties held in 1958 and 1959.
My Grandmother Gochenour was the only clown I was not afraid of!

I remember that red wall paper.

Rube and Dot Becker.
Chubb and Rube were my grandmother's siblings.

|I wonder what was in the bag?|
|A neighbor made me this pilgrim costume for Halloween 1969.|
Seniors were able to wear costumes to school.
|In the early 1990s my husband and I wore these costumes to a party.|
I was wearing a pillow as if I were pregnant. My hubby had taken
Mime classes and this was his costume. That's the Phillies Phanatic in his arms.
|Our son's earliest costume was Peter Pan which I made. |
He is posed with our first Shiba Inu, Kili.
|My quilt group friend Jan was inspired by my Edgar Allan Poe quilt|
to make a costume with a purple curtain and a raven!
