since I have been workingon costumes for my little goblins I started to think about what I had been for Halloween as a child. I couldn't remember very many so here is the short list:

a clown
a genie
minnie mouse
something involving fishnets

and my personal favorite -

in kindergarten I was Cyndi Lauper complete with pink hair in a side ponytail on the top of my head and an acid washed denim mini-skirt that was all ruffly. I'm talkin about vintage full-on girlsjustwannahavefun 80's Cyndi Lauper. I attended private school and although we were allowed to forgo our uniforms and wear costumes for halloween I had to say I was a "punk rocker", and yeah, I was 5 years old. How impossibly cool was I? Classic.
