Halloween Stories

Another Flashback Friday at HeartSongs and this week we are sharing Halloween stories. I really don't have any exciting stories of this holiday.

I am realizing my life is quite boring since I fould Flashback Friday. Oh well, I'm never bored so it's ok.

I seem to enjoy Halloween so much more as an adult. As a kid it was just ok. I was always the chubby kid though so going around one night a year and asking for candy never felt right. Now, as a BBW I have absolutely no qualms about it. Especially since I have 3 demons to cart around.

I have hated clowns for as long as I can remember. The stupid things have never made me happy, or laugh, or giggle. I have always found them quite creepy. Creepy Clowns. The clown doll on Poltergeist and the clown in IT have proved that they are just wrong. Clowns are bad and eveoooool.

When I was about 5 years old my mom thought it would be cute to dress in matching costumes. She chose the clown costume. The picture shows both of us smiling and I could have been happy. The pure clown hatred didn't show up until I was in my teens.

I was Pippy Longstockings one year. I had a wires stuck in my braids to make them stick out. I asked my mom for a horse just for that one day, but it had to be a white horse so I could paint the black polk-a-dots on him. I never got the horse.

After that I really didn't dress up for Halloween until I left my SW and moved back home and started the job I'm at now. The company decorates the office and we are "allowed" to dress up on the 31st. Since I started I have been the One-Eyed One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater (that costume was fun to put together but a pain to keep the horn and wings on during the day), I have been a devil (a couple of the guys really loved it), I was a spider queen, a gypsy, and the best costume of all was when I was pregnant with Harley. The kids and I had just watched the Little Vampire and there is a farm in the movie with some cows. The vampires feed off the cows so they are not killing the humans, because you know, they are good and decent vampires that just want to live normal, happy lives with their families.

I got this brillant idea in my head to be a vampiric cow that Halloween. While getting costumes for the kids I had seen a cow costume and thought with some makeup it would be hilarious. I got the cow costume, it was a generic cow look, white with black spots and the cow's udder was positioned right over my stomach. Once the whole costume was put together, with the outfit and the makeup, it was perfect. My pregnant belly made the udder stick out much further than it normally would have. I painted my face black, around my eyes white and I had fangs in with "blood" dripping from my mouth. I got so many laughs and had so much fun that day. Ethan and Emma were totally embarrassed by me, which is always a plus! hehe

This year is bringing a regular vampire. I'm just really not in the mood to think up something new, I'm not in the mood for Halloween at all. Hopefully by Monday I will be.

Love the vampire cow....that must have been hilarious!

It's weird about clowns. They can be cool, but they can be really really creepy, too.

And by the way, your life is NOT boring! LOL

Love the vampire cow!! I'm with you on the clowns...I've been freaked out by clowns all my life, my mom said as a child I'd scream if a clown would come close to me! I hate them, even now. Very creepy creatures! ;)

Hope you have a Spooktacular Halloween!
