Show and Tell Friday....a bit of Halloween from the past!

Show and Tell Friday time , thank you to Cindy for being our hostess at,http://romantichome.blogspot.com/ ,.
Be sure and check out her fabulous blog and all those who are Showing and Telling
this week!

I was reliving some of my Halloween past this week. So thought I would show and tell about
something from about 45 years ago.
My first Halloween costume!
This is the one I had when I was about 5 years old.
A fairy princess costume.
It has seen much better days and I couldn't figure out a way to take photos of it looking
more magazine like. It is what it is, old and wrinkled, probably like me, LOL!
Remember these old acetate ones with cardboard accessories.
Probably only cost a few dollars back then.
But we did also make many of our costumes back in the day, it was always a challenge to
come up with something but fun.
Boy have the costumes gotten more elaborate in present day.
My mother has a hard time parting with things, sometimes that is good and sometimes bad, but at least we have some things from our childhood because of it.
(Click on photos to enlarge)

See I even had a crown back then, even if it was cardboard!

Even came with it's own cardboard fairy princess wand, what
every little girl needs!
Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
Will you as an adult be dressing up?

That's so great that you still have a costume from your childhood. My Mum is definitely someone who "cleans out" regualarly so it's rare to have a lot of more "everyday things."

Enjoy your memories!

BTW No dressing up for me this year.

Yes, this poor thing has seen better days. I am sort of afraid to iron it but might try it on an acetate setting. Been in my cedar chest a long time with some other momentos from my past.


I love this! I can't believe you still have it! This costume is so much more original and prettier than the ones I've seen out today. Thank you so much for sharing! -April
