Wayback Wednesday: Trick or Treat, Part 2

As promised last week, here’s another Halloween photo from the shoebox of olden-days pictures. Eileen is pretty much single-handedly responsible for the cute in this picture, since Brian & I are both well hidden by our Super Friends masks. Good thing she’s rocking out the huge sugar-rush smile, or this wouldn’t be a notable photo at all, well, other than for the fact that we’re wearing the only store-bought costumes I ever remember us having.  I don’t know whether Wonder Woman and Batman were just not in Mom’s costume-making repertoire, or if we were really, really insistent that we be the Super Friends versions of the characters, but either way, this was an anomaly – we were pretty strictly homemade costume kids.

Fun bit of tangentially related trivia: A few years after this picture was taken, Brian and I convinced Eileen that her first grade teacher was the real Wonder Woman. (She was pretty and had long brown hair like Lynda Carter did on tv, so it didn’t seem like that much of a stretch.) Eileen will probably deny that she actually believed us, but she did. She totally, totally did.

    Okay, what I want to know is what is my costume? I can’t make out what I’m supposed to be.

      I think you’re a bunny of some sort – or at least, that’s what it looks like on your shirt. Your ears are kinda jacked up, though.

        It does say fluffy the bunny (thanks for interpreting). However that is one creepy looking bunny.

    As I recall, “fluffy bunny’s” ears were abruptly attached to the white knit hat as it was one of those frigid Halloween’s. Note two layers of long sleeves on the “wonder friends”‘. And, you’re right — Eileen looked cute there even if her ears had been sideways!!
