Halloween costumes of the past, and present….
yes the tarantula is REAL (or the molt is real)
Kiba the tarantula makes art everytime she grows!
I’ve been looking through photographs of Halloween costumes. Now that my children are grown I don’t pull out the camera each year, and only if invited to a party do I dress up!
Above is a photograph of part of a new Halloween costume made by my daughter Aynsley. It features the molt of Kiba, her pet tarantula. Whenever Kiba molts, she leaves behind a near perfect copy of herself which my daughter incorporates into her art.
Sherlock Holmes (at age 13) was as close to
a skeptic investigator as I could get!
Any guesses? Steve Irwin
wears long pants in NH!
The big croc is a give away!
This dino/dragon costume was worn by most
children in our neighborhood. My mother in
law made it for Aynsley, and at least 5 other
children wore it for later Halloweens.
Aynsley later on could tell us what
she wanted to be, BATMAN!
Darth is really her father!
Evelyn as “Alice”
another costume that saw multiple Halloweens,
plus even appeared in a play.
Evelyn’s short lived goth phase
Aynsley as a cute kitty
Evelyn and Hayley are some sort
of princesses. Rita is in a costume
of her own devising.
Evelyn decided her sister was going to be
a cowgirl also. Aynsley was too young
to say “no!” yet!
Evelyn convinced Aynsley to dress as a bunny
to go along with the Alice theme.
