Old Halloween photos of you as a kid
« on: January 18, 2008, 04:26:35 PM »
I thought there was already a thread about this but I looked and couldn't find one.

Since we've all been posting old photos I came across this one of me as a robot. This was when we lived in Miami, Florida either 1976 or '77. The thing that I really liked about this costume was that the panel on the front of the box would open up and I had stapled a bag around the inside so that candy could just be thrown inside. I didn't have to carry around a bag.

Excellent!  Excellent photo and costume.  I like the bit about the slot with the bag stapled to the inside...it gives it extra coolness.
Beautiful moving, shifting colors!

Hmmm. Not sure Craig. I'll have to go look. Was it at the Reserve group? I'll check it out.

I regret not having more childhood pictures of me playing with my monster toys or wearing Halloween costumes.  I know I have a couple somewhere, but nothing spectacular enough to justify the hours of searching it would take to find them.

Here's one from me. It's probably '65 or '66, right out of my Dick Smith Monster Make Up book. My mom sewed the cloak.

You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

Man, Jim...that is a great make-up job!  What a great picture!  That should be an album cover or something.

Here is a picture of me as Dracula...and...an admission ticket  from 1969.
This was a Halloween "Scream in the Dark" haunted house put on in my home town from 1969 to 1974. Campus Life "Scream in the Dark" haunted houses were in other towns too, I believe.
I was Dracula in 1969, 1970, 1972 and Frankenstein monster in 1973.
Best,
Richard

Richard, that is the creepiest, most vicious looking kid vampire I've ever seen. Very nice!

It kind of reminds me of that one ghoul in "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things," the one that steps out from behind the tree and stalks towards Emerson.  The heavy eyeshadow is creepy!
Beautiful moving, shifting colors!

That is 'Max Schreck" cool for sure, Richard!  Creepy enough to give me nightmares!
