A chronological account of all Halloween costumes I can remember wearing.
  1. Little Red Riding Hood
    Fff88e02 5b4b 4979 aeab 791c22405da2
    1982 - That's me and my bro.
  2. Snow White
    4afc3b24 0eb6 4b62 82eb b8e82e7ab217
    1984 - Apparently no amount of makeup was enough to satisfy me.
  3. Fairy Princess
    1985 - My mom's idea, but I was a very girly little girl. So...
  4. Devil
    1987 - This was totally my idea. I wore black tights and a leotard with horns, a pitchfork, and a pointy tail. Wish I had a picture. Wore it for a church Halloween carnival. I didn't get the irony.
  5. Genie
    1988 - I was so stoked about this one. I wanted to be sexy and the costume had a mid drift (the epitome of sexiness in my mind). I was certain I'd impress everyone with my 8 year old body...until it became the coldest night in Dallas Halloween history and I had to wear thermals under my cute costume. I'm still bitter, frankly.
  6. Bunnicula
    1989 - This was adorable! I loved the Bunnicula books. So I was a vampire rabbit. I wore a parsnip around my neck to represent a carrot Bunnicula had drained. Wish I had a pic.
  7. Hippie
    1991 - With Sammie Hooper for Ryan Brockington's Halloween Party (6th grade). The first of MANY hippie Halloweens, as you'll see. (It was kind of my go-to).
  8. Hippie
    0689d173 4954 4150 93bf 87d7a5ece6bd
    1992 - Jennie Prather's Halloween Party (7th grade). I remember this was the night I first attempted to headbang and woke up the next day with the worst neck pain of my life. (PS: I'm somewhere in this pic looking very awkward and horrible, as one does at this age).
  9. Vampire
    1994 - I had a pic before the fire. :( I got all dolled up and wore my mom's prom dress from 1970 and then poured fake blood down my mouth and neck. ( I was obsessed with Anne Rice at the time).
  10. Pulp Fiction Uma Thurman/Mia Wallace
    1995 - Again, I used to have a picture before the fire. It was pretty rad.
  11. Cheerleader
    1999 - Ok. This was a lame attempt to impress my boyfriend at the time. Too bad I wore it to the daycare I worked at for their children's Halloween party. I was not an appropriate 19 year old.
  12. Hermione Granger
    2003 - Another picture that perished in the fire. This was harder to do at the time than it would be now. There was no Hot Topic yet. I had to scour the web and pay a pretty penny to put together an authentic Hogwarts uniform. It was a nerd's dream come true.
  13. Hippie
    D5c48884 96cc 4df9 bb37 5488e66c60c0
    2004 - For working on Halloween at the movie theater in Denton.
  14. Hippie
    3c3ac207 64fa 4128 bd50 1cd15231e27e
    2006 - For costume day working at Delta Airlines.
  15. Gypsy
    726c964e 8a09 42d2 b5f9 65870d4b743f
    2007 - First Halloween living in Austin. I rented this from Lucy in Disguise and then bought it off of them because I loved it so much.
  16. 1960's Panam Stewardess
    34ef749e 1686 4376 8ffa 8ff467181829
    2009 - I've been obsessed with the 60's since I can remember and love flying. This was perfect for me. I loved wearing it.
  17. Sookie Stackhouse (Merlotte's uniform).
    20d154a0 a354 4e6b afc1 043678657551
    2010 - Guess what I was obsessed with that year. (Don't ask me to explain my husband's costume. I have no idea).
  18. Mike Nesmith's Groupie
    E2d4684c b837 4b66 9d67 a0b9de0a5acc
    2011 - My favorite costume ever! I actually got my husband to dress as Mike Nesmith from The Monkees. I handmade his double-breasted shirt with the help of my mom and ordered my costume to match. I got to be 60's-y and my husband looked like a Monkee!!! My favorite show as a child. I'm still a big fan. This was so much fun. I've never been able to get him to match before or since, but he ended up loving this.
  19. 1980's Cliche Girl
    4bf688d9 dd33 4438 9713 15e7b5dfeca5
    2012 - Didn't every girl in the 80's wear an "I 💜 the 80's" shirt at all times?
  20. 1960's Era Star Trek Girl
    72f65068 5632 4ffc 9f0b fde46979cea6
    2014 - Another excuse to wear 60's clothes. Tried to get my husband to be 60's Spock, but he decided to be a storm trooper at the last minute. Traitor.
  21. Supergirl
    94883c0c 3852 4c96 94f0 bb25491431e3
    2015 - This was so much fun.
