Halloween Costumes Long Past and Present

Today we’re looking back, way back, about 40 years into the past. I recently found these Halloween photos of my sister and me from the 70s. Don’t you just love the old plastic masks and the stiff nylon costumes? I remember trying desperately to breathe in those things.

We’ve figured out that we have a bunny and a witch in the first photo. In the second it’s obviously Frankenstein, but we’re arguing about the gorilla or ape costume. Even my hubby who is a cartoon expert from that era can’t remember the character. I thought it might possible by Magilla Gorilla, but he doesn’t think so. Any ideas, anyone??

And to show that I haven’t varied my taste much over the years, decades later I am still a witch..
