Halloween Flashback

My brother always got the best Halloween costumes when we were kids. Three years older than me (and probably a lot more demanding), he had home-made costumes galore, while I had hand-me-downs and thrown-together getups. He was a clown, a lobster (a lobster), a hobo-clown, a mobster, and Superman. I was a leftover clown (wearing his too-big costume), a stereotypical witch, and – well, I’m not sure what else, because clearly my costumes were not worth documenting in our family albums.

I want to see photos of your childhood Halloween costumes. E-mail scans to stephanief @ wornjournal.com and I’ll post them on the WORN blog in the days leading up to Halloween.

More fun than throwing up in your pillowcase of half-eaten Mars bars? I think so.


This is just unfair. Unbelievable. Unlobsterable.

He should have had his own style blog.

Please note the clever use of eyeliner (on both of us).

Now that’s what I call a structured piece of tailoring.

My dad thinks I look like a real witch in this. Hmm…

Smiling hurts when you’re swimming in your costume.

Remember: Send as many photos as you’d like, and even a caption if you feel inclined – but no spam, please! – to stephanief @ wornjournal.com, and I’ll post them here for the world to see.

  1. Next time you see me I’ll be donning blue eyebrows and pale pink lipstick that extends further than my lips. Your brother is just that inspiring, Steph.

    Also the plush toy reminds me of nothing but ballcocks. Joke getting old?

  2. This is a really cute and hilarious blog post! I love the “unlobsterable” photo. I want to wear that for Halloween. Your bro looks like such a mobster with the eyeliner goatee.

    Trick-or-treat!
