Halloween stuff 001 - Copy

I started to think how neat it would be to put together a post of all the pictures of Eamon’s Halloween costumes though his life. I madly dug through every suitcase and picture file to find these. I’m missing a few but if I do find them, they can be added. This is my “Halloween memories of my kid” post and welcome to it.

This was in Miss Tara’s three year old’s day care class. Eamon’s the sullen looking spider on the left.


The next year, the Transformer Optimus Prime. He just called him Primus.

Eamon and Josh trick 'r treating

The next year, it was The other flavor Transformer, Bumblebee. He went trick or treating with Josh.

Eamon as a mummy

This next year is the year of the homemade mummy costume. We love to pose in front of our neighbor’s fence.


Trick or treating with our pal Graham and his little sister Ava. Recognize her costume?

Pottery barn kids money needed to be spread out a little more before I let it go.

No, you can't come Butthead

The next year, he wanted to be a ghost. He was telling Butthead he couldn’t come trick or treating with us.

Butthead had his grand adventure in Easton a year before.

Meme 's ghostie

Every year, on our way to trick or treat, we stop at our neighbor Meme’s house. Every year, I take a picture  of this event.

Graveyard ham

Having misplaced my camera, I had broken down and bought a new one that very day. Because I needed this shot.

Dias de la Meurta costume from 2012. He looked super cool. I did my face up too. The weekend of Frankenstorm.

How fun to see them all again in one place. I’m missing the one when he was 6 months dressed as a pumpkin and up on the Halloween dinner table. Traditionally we have tomato soup, grilled cheese, and chips. Until that became a bad thing. Trouble at the table part one.

And this year, back to the bought costume with a cool Ninja with blue accents and daggers.

Eamon will have come up with a super cool name, list of powers, and back-story by the end of the week.

Stay tuned for Mark and my costumes next.

  1. Great to see all those – I’m feeling like I want to dig out all my kids’ dress-up photos now too and put them in one place! I’m not able to buy costumes for my two this year, so we’re improvising. For my son, we’re making a zombie costume; we’re going to put cuts and slashes in an old white tea shirt and with red paint put some splashes and a couple of bloodied dragging hand prints, same with some old trousers, plus splashes of red paint on a bandage which we’ll wrap around his wrist or something. My daughter is making her own, some kind of catwoman get up with black leggins and things, she’s 14 and far more creative than me, so I’m sure it’ll be good! Happy Halloween Shalagh!

  2. I have a suspicion that your daughter may have gotten her creatively honestly from her mama. Zombies are a fabulous go to for a boy. If he can stomach holding some real brains, he’s got my vote. I have to admit, I am slightly excited to begin again with a girl! Thanks Vanessa!
