Normally the lamp shade ending up on ones heads usually happens at the end of the evening. Hmmm maybe this IS the end of the evening? A 1950’s Costume Party.

I will leave you with an image of my brother and I at Halloween in the 80’s. What is hilarious about these costumes, is that I just had a conversation with my mom on Thanksgiving about how she felt that she did a really great job on our costumes each year. That was until I found this image and I asked my mom if this was the year she gave up 😉 lol!

Question Time: What are you being for Halloween this year? Going with a vintage look or something far removed from the vintage world?

Happy Halloween Week!
