Vintage Halloween Photo SPOOKtacular
As far as I can tell (my childhood memories are spotty at best), I've always loved Halloween. The October celebration of ghosts and goblins and high-fructose corn syrup touched something deep inside my evil little heart, as you can see in the photo above, where I proudly display both a cornucopia of seasonal items and my finest Gecko Hawaii shirt. In the spirit of the season, I have taken the liberty of scanning and collecting some old photos of these early Halloweens to share with you. It's like peeking into your trick-or-treat bag at the end of the night...let's see what we've got!
book and cassette audiobook forms, and much more. I even left in the bottom section of the Polaroid, with a handwritten message from the Ghost of Halloweens Past.
For whatever reason, my most chronicled costume is my scarecrow outfit. Here it is in its embryonic stage:
Carve-O-Lantern book, a skull candle holder, random cornstalks and fake spiderwebs, and my sister dressed as Ariel from The Little Mermaid, complete with red tinsel hair and tasteful faux-torso sweater.
And that's my stroll down Memory Lane, right where the sidewalk meets All Hallow's Drive. Thanks for joining me, and of course...
Joey Marsilio would love to share vintage Polaroids of his debut novel, Henry Garrison: St. Dante's Savior, but they don't actually exist. You can still buy a copy, though.
