The Big Wicked Online Pageant

Beckeye was nice enough to ask me to join this, even though I haven't blogged in a really long time. Thanks, Beck, for remembering me.

The Big Wicked Online Pageant Rules: Scan a photo from your Halloween past. (Ideally, the photos should be from your childhood but we'll take what you've got.) Post it to your blog on Friday, October 29. Once you post your photo, email me the URL to that specific post. I'll post a link to every participant's blog by Saturday afternoon. I've also added a new wrinkle this year. Although the main goal of this pageant is to have some fun and get to know other bloggers, every pageant has to have a winner, right? At least that's what all the stage moms I know say. So, once you've seen all the participants' photos, come back and vote for your favorite. You can either cast your vote in the comments section or send it via email. Please don't be a monster and vote for yourself.

I don't have any pictures from when I was a kid, but here are some from late teen and early 20's. I used the same outfit a few times. My high school sweetheart and I had a couple of killer costume parties. This first pic is he and I and another friend. I was the devil, he was the nun.

I used to make this punch in a plastic witch's cauldron with sherbet and grain alcohol and dry ice. The dry ice wouldn't hurt you, but the grain alcohol might. Seriously, it was cool as hell because it smoked and bubbled. (btw, that was one of my best friends behind me - girl had BALLS dressing as a belly dancer while pregnant!)

This one the tail is between MY legs.

This one between someone else's. Good times!

Just for giggles, I'm also putting up a picture of my high school sweetie's best costume EVER!
