How dang precious are you?? Great pictures. I kinda wish you had more.

Darla

Too cute! You don't see so many homemade costumes these days. Clever Mom you have.

Darla

My Melange

Aw, Corey. Too cute! I really like the lil' Indian girl costume. You look too cute!

Travelingmama

How cute! Does France have a holiday like Halloween where the kids get dressed up?

delphine

Marvelous pictures of a time before every Halloween girl became a Disney princess.

Shannon

You're brother is clever spelling his last name backwards.

I think it's sexy to wear a long sleeve t-shirt underneath a bikini top ;)

You looked like Groucho Marx's ghost.

Shannon

I was just thinking....if you lived on a farm, the houses must've been far apart. How did you get from house to house and how many were you able to hit?

jzr

Such wonderful costumes and an adorable girl!!

tut-tut

Ooh, the first costume I made for L was a ladybug. As a matter of fact, that is the symbol she and her godmother share. Her gm said it seemed just yesterday she had on that costume, and it's fourteen . . .

Chantal

These photos are simply wonderful! So lovely to see you as a kid in all your Halloween Regalia. Thanks for sharing :-) Boo!

Ariane

I love the Halloween photos! Cute costumes! I bet you got some strange looks as a mermaid along the highway... LOL That would have been a fun photo to see.

Miz Booshay

I love your wonderful photos!

Your little hand is dying to itch some more in that picture :o)

I can remember being Raggedy Ann. My mother dyed a mop red for the wig.

Bless her heart!

pusa

you look lovely in all of those costumes! have a happy halloween =)

Paula

Oh my gosh, these are WONDERFUL.

Corey, your best post ever !!

BOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

susan

I love these vintage images, especially since they're YOURS! Please retrieve the e-card I concocted for the bloggers I admire and know here: http://www.banjobunny.com/viewcard.php?reqid=4728892d598a9

Happy Halloween to you too!

Jill

What wonderful photos those are! I was once a bathing beauty, too, around age 4, and I had a shirt and long pants under my swimsuit (it was cold that evening!).

martina

What wonderful photo memories you have of your mom's creativity and your childhood.

kim

I love those photos so much.

And I love Halloween. Even as a 48 year old -- I just think it's such fun. Over here in England I find that people don't really make a fuss over Halloween... although each year we get a few trick or treaters. Which reminds me, I need to go buy some candy just in case...)

Anyhoo... one of these years I want to have a big ol' Halloween party.
Kim

Sheba

Now we know the genetic link to your creative genius. I do want to see ALL the costumes!!!

Cherie

Soooo cute!!! Homemade costumes are the bomb...there is life and spirit to them. I l laughed out loud at the ghost story..kids are so funny. My sister (younger) and I went as clowns one year with store-bought costumes that had been handed down to us. The one I wore (because I was taller & slimmer) had no hat..the one my sister had did have a hat. I kicked up such a fuss about not having a hat that my mom put the one to my sister's costume on my head and my sister wore an old rain bonnet!!! Sometimes age has it's perks!! :)

Ulla

I would throw a fit too, why not girl ghosts among the cowboys!!! You are a treasure - then and now! Happy Happy Halloween dear one!

Felicia

Oh, I love your outfits! Happy Halloween :)

cruststation

I love this post, great costumes! You were adorable!! (obviously you haven't changed)...Happy Halloween.

rochambeau

You look so cute and wonderful.
Just like now.
Thinking of you!!

eb

too cute!!!!!!!!!!

I remember some itchy costumes too

probably my favorite costume

was when I dressed like a beatnik...

permed hair!?!, gray sweatshirt, plaid pants,

tennis shoes, a beret...

the time my sister and I were orientals...

that was nice - silk pjs...

come on over and see my sister and I

as the little witches...

we are wearing some nice shoes

xox - eb.

Di Overton

My, how you've changed since 1962.

A Novelist

Happy Halloween! :)

eb

love these costumes...

one of my favorites as a kid

was when I dressed like a beatnik:

permed hair with beret,

gray sweatshirt,

plaid pants and tennis shoes...

and then when my sis and I were orientals...

oh those silk pjs... nice

come over and see us as the little witches

our shoes are pretty cool...

xox - eb.

eb

repeating myself -

thought a ghost grabbed my comment!

xox - eb.

Brother Mathew

Mom was creative for sure. But as years passed home made costumes where the only solution in disguising brother Marty; as store puchased masks were much too small for his large head. Clever indeed!

Kas

I love your little bangs & sweet face in the first 2 photos ~ You are so adorable!

Carolyn

Great stuff Corey, happy Halloween to you. By the way Vanessa tells us that you gave her some tips on getting her blog to load faster? I wondered if you could tell me how to do this when you get a minute. Thanks.
Carolyn

Eivlys

AnnieElf

Cool eyebrows. Pitching a fit suits you. LOL

scarlett

I love the costumes. I have none of my childhood costumes.

Have a good ghoul party!

Pinkie Denise

Oh, Corey you are so cute! Love the sweet little Indian. My mom made us be the Three, Little Indians too. Rene', Shawn, and I when we were little. I still remember those itchy gunnie sack! Yikes! You have a happy Halloween, miss you Denise

Sandy

How cute! I have ZERO pics of me in my costumes & mom used to make mine too.

Julie Ann

Trick or treat cutie ?

Orama

Wow, great old photos Corey.
The love and care Mom put into those homemade, one of a kind outfits, for you and I was a reflexion of how much she loved us. Funny, how after Mathew was born we started getting the cheap 5 & dime costumes.

Kit

Such gorgeous pics to have and I was looking forward to your whole history of costumes up to the present day!

We didn't have the tradition of Halloween - had to wait for Bonfire Night on the 5th of November and then the dressed up one was the guy to go on top of the fire, so we didn't wear masks just in case!

Karen Cole

I want more pictures!!!!

I was scrambling to find some old ones of my own, but couldn't. I had a few from the 70's but I wouldn't want anyone to see those!!!

Happy Halloween

Connie...Altered Route

Great memories, eh!! Wish my folks would have taken pictures...
Connie

Jungle Dream Pagoda

Supercalifragilistically adorable!!!!
Happy H-Day !!!

Blondie

So great! I love it. Perhaps I will post a picture of me when I was little, dressed as a peanut vender or tube of toothpaste.

Ursula Shaw

Great photos! Happy Halloween

PEA

Happy Halloween to you too:-) Awwww I so loved the pictures of you in your Halloween costumes as a little girl, so adorable! I remember people using burlap bags to make costumes...itchy just thinking of it! lol xo

Shin

The pictures are adorable. I wish I could see your mermaid outfit too

julieholvik

So like your mother, so much detail to each costume. You were a doll. Happy Hollow

Donna O.

Woo-hoo!! Check out the "gams" on that little Indian Maiden!
Happy Hallowe'en Corey!!

Sheila

The photos are so cute..!
I can imagine how itchy that sack was..!

Great images! I'm going as Lizard Girl tonight. She was an underrated super hero. You might not have heard about her.
Happy Halloween. E

How adorable!!! Love these pics and this post.

beachy

Treasured photos of a precious girl (lady)! Happy Halloween!

somepinkflowers

my mom made those cloth masks
for us, too,
where you cut the holes in fabric.

:-)

i wish kids
had that kind these days
rather than those plastic ones...

hard to take good snapshots
and they look so charming...

vivianneroni

happy halloween! I love the pictures of you !!! your mother is very creative! I always made my kids costumes too. sort of miss that!
have a great night!

susanna

Awwww! Those are terrific homemade costumes and what wonderful photos of you, Corey. So cute! Happy Halloween from the States! :)

M erisi's Vienna

*giggle*
I hope you had a fun Halloween Eve!
I used to also make the costumes for my kids.
One year I did the ghost version. Very close to your mother's, only that I wisely used a separate piece of fabric for the head. No rope around the neck, but they looked you know like those brothers from the Clan. ooooooooooooooohoooooo :-(

Leslie M

How precious! Thanks for sharing these pictures. My youngest son is named Corey.

Great name.

maddie

You are so very precious!

cute as a button!

or a little ghoul!

jen

OH priceless pics Corey. Aren't we the lucky ones to have been born at that time? It really was just the best. Thanks for sharing!

elsa

cute corey. i think it is wonderful that you have access to these photos. really wonderful!

happy halloween!!!!

MaryC

Oh those are precious! I love that you have little masks on in the first two photos. My mom made all of our costumes too and I loved seeing what we would come up with each year. It's such a fun tradition!

queen of the carnivale

Oh my gosh- I could eat you up! Too cute!!! Your mother certainly knew how to put a costume together...

Happy Halloween my Dearie!

Hasmin

Corey, I love the fact that you have photos to capture your childhood, especially during Hallows Eve. Mommy Amaro is sooo cool with her creative costumes! Do I see a "hula girl" in the first pic? :-) The indian costume is soooo adorable...sorry it itched like crazy, but you looked so darn cute (what's the saying? it's better to look good, than to feel good..LOL) The ghost is hauntingly funny!

bejeweled

What super cute photos of little you!! Just priceless!

naturegirl

((((((((HAPPY HALLOWEEN)))))
I just flew in on a witches broom!
I am having a blast visiting all the

Sweet photos and memories!!

Love the darling costumed toddler pictures (especially that you had to have a mask on as part of those costumes as well).

I am older than my brother and we 'had' to dress up the same for a number of years as well. I think we were clowns for three or four years in a row. (Unisex costume! As I got too tall for mine, he inherited it, and mom just made a larger one for me... I so hated that costume by the time I was able to talk her out of it!)

Elaine L.

Priceless pictures!

The first costume, I remember, was me dressed as a gypsy. I was in first grade and had long hair. I must have looked pretty glamorous, because I remember a boy in my class, named Lee, who gave me a kiss.

Actually, I do remember seeing gypsies and thought they were beautiful with their brightly colored skirts, and all the bracelets. This was in Los Angeles, CA around 1957.

I'm never disappointed with what you share. I love that your mom made the costumes. The good old days, huh?
What do you mean you didn't have your camera with you as the ladybug and when you were stranded on the side of the freeway? I mean, "REALLY" Corey! tee hee

Kitem

So many comments already, Yesss the costumes are beautiful. Same smile now and then.

Paul-ene
