Halloween is just a week away and since it doesn't fall on a Friday or Saturday, a lot of costume parties are going on this weekend (including the greatest Halloween party in the Universe at the Machine Shop with Ironsnake). I thought it would be fun to go down memory lane and share some old Halloween photos from when I was a kid.

Back in the day, it was a huge thing to get dressed up for school and have a Halloween party. Up until middle school of course. I can remember having to parade around the school in costume and even in the downtown area of the city. My how times have changed.

If I really think about it I can remember a lot of costumes that I had growing up. Above I was Darth Vader (could hardly breathe with those old and way-too-flat plastic masks), a nerd (of course), hockey player, and ninja, but I have to say my all-time favorite costume was when I was Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi.

What were some of your favorite costumes as a kid growing up? I can only imagine what Chris, Tony, and Maggie's were.
