And you know what that means...
The Brown Girls: Melinda and Cindy
Circa: 1980 and 1978
OMG, right?!? Those Strawberry Shortcake costumes are scary! Y'all remember those plastic mask? They would break if just put them on wrong! Goodness. Eek!
Now, have you ever seen two cuter angels? I think NOT! And we totally were and are angels so that makes the costume even that much more fun! But the best part of these costumes is that they were made by my mom and grandmother. They're pretty darn talented! Thanks Mom and Mid!
And for your continued viewing pleasure:
The Guercio Kids: Jody, Jeremy and Katy
Circa: 1983 and 1986(ish)
Mom always let us pick our costumes. Naturally Jeremy's stature and size made him a great candidate for Superman, my cuteness made me the perfect tiger cub (or was it that LSU thing) and Jody was a zombie. (Please note that zombies can't stand upright. Clearly.)
A few years went by and Jeremy's con-man cuteness lead him to choose Pirate, me, well... I was a good witch. And Jody outgrew Halloween, or maybe he was just "the boy next door".
Happy Halloween from the Merry Mommas!
