The earliest ones I can remember come from 82 or 83. First costume I wore was a bat cape, and black pants and top. The cape designed to look like bat wings even though it was fabric. As soon as i got outside, I remember running around, jumping in the air, and thinking I would be able to glide.

Next year, my parents bought a full body costume-you know, the ones you could buy in the grocery store with the cheap plastic mask that had the flimsy rubber band. my costume was a skeleton. i thought it was pretty cool.

i remember the first time i had a real mask. no more of the cheap plastic that would get full of hot air, spit, and snot (if it was cold outside that night). my crappy mask had lights on the top. i didnt know what it was suppose to be so i said i was a gremlin. looking back, i was nowhere close. i was just excited to have a mask with lights.

i guess the important part, costume or not, was the candy. i would save the big bars till the end of the candy line and eat the crappy candy first. you had to be careful not to eat all the good stuff so soon. rationing was the key.

      I was an adorable strawberry in preschool. I think me and my siblings have all been either a vegetable or fruit for Halloween.

      The only costume I never got to wear was my tinkerbell costume. I was struck down with Scarlett Fever and missed halloween, Talk about one pissed seven year old :x

JOE, Spiderman, The Flash, Scorpion from Mortal Kobat (that was my favorite), the wolfman, a Goblin weilding a huge fucking Axe, Alex from A clockwork Orange (before it was obsessed by every damn 14 yearold), and some others I cant think of at the moment.

              I visited my cousins in California when I was 7 an it was around Halloween. They had a party and my mom bought me the Max Headroom costume.

              The earliest costume I remember having was when I was about 5 and me and my cousin dress at the WWF team DEMOLITION!!

                The earliest costume I remember was when I was three, I was a boring ol' clown. After that I was a girly-girl for a few years and was an angel, a fairy, a princess, etc.

                  I was the cutest wittle devil anyone had ever seen (literally). Thank god the 80s were almost over when I started trick-or-treating.

                      The only store bought castume I can ever remember waring was when I was four I was Earny from Seasme Street. Other then that I was a lepard, a farie, a clown, a nurse, Mortisha from the Adams family. a ghost baseball player from the Field of Dreams, a scarecrow, a fifties sock-hop girl, Wilda from Wheres Waldo, a hippie that's all I can remember. Every one of those was homemade except for Earnie and the Hippie.

                            A black cat. I was it for a few years. I hated pink, and did not want to be anything scary. So a black cat. Funny thing is I do not like cats.

                                my first halloween i went as a bunch of grapes....thanks mom.....green sweat suite with purple balloons stappled all over them, kids thought it a scream to pop them. also been peter pan, patch and lucky from 101 dalmations, classic black cat, an accident victim, a tiger tamer that was the coolest one my face was completley painted in orange and black tiger stripes, a mardi gras princess, and i think that was it, my last few halloweens have been costumeless do to plans falling through *shrug* though watching RHPS and the original poltergiest and omen series for the past few years hasn't been a bad tradition.

                                  I remember going as a clown, a punkrocker, and batman (though I think I called myself batgirl) in the 80s. Can't remember the rest. In the early 90s, during the time of the troll doll fad, me and my friend went as a married troll couple. I found the mask a while back and put it on - my dog got so freaked out.

                                    I was minnie mouse in the 80s, I was really little. It was one of those ones w/ the plastic dress, and it had a picture of minnie dressed in 80s clothes on it. It was around the time the disney special "totally minnie" came out. 1988 I think....
