the ghosts of halloween past

Here are my costumes from the past few years. Some are a little embarrassing, some I'm very proud of. The most interesting thing is that I didn't really care much for Halloween in high school, and it wasn't until college that I started going all out in making costumes. There is something so freeing about going out in costume, you can release whatever you're feeling and feel very little self consciousness (but that will be elaborated on in my post-Halloween 2009 run down).
2005-Stoplight
2006-This was the year that I was Lara Croft Tomb Raider (complete with Nerf gun that resided in a homemade cardboard holster on my leg) and a fairy but unfortunately there are no pictures of those. (I went to a different event every night that whole week before Halloween) Also, I was a 1940's pin-up girl with my roommate who looks exactly like Kate Beckinsale in Pearl Harbor in this picture.
2007-Pikachu- this is the ONLY picture I have of that costume and that makes me so sad because I really had the whole Pikachu thing nailed on this one!
2008- Degas ballerina and my favorite Halloween costume of all time because I got to make a tutu.
