Spelunking: Halloween Past Haunts
As we make our final preparations for Halloween tomorrow, it’s always fun to remember some of our favorite past costumes.
Many of us who were teens in the ’90s remember the troubles Donna Martin had in her mermaid costume on “Beverly Hills 90210,” but Katy Wilson lived it. She was once the Little Mermaid for Halloween. She suffered the same problem with the costume’s tail making it hard to walk, but because Katy did not grow up in Beverly Hills, she had another obstacle- ice on the sidewalk! She slipped on every block she visited while trick-or-treating.

Stephen Sinclair would have been sure to come to Katy’s rescue if he actually had super powers. After he was Superman for Halloween when he was preschool age, he spent many days “transforming” into his favorite costume. He did this to provide whatever help was needed, including bringing his grandmother a glass of “freshly squeezed orange juice.”
Some of our favorite costumes are from when we were past trick-or-treating age. There was Jon and Kate (plus eight), the SNL Bears Super Fans, Snooki and JWow, the Operation Game, and even Vanilla Ice.
Who will we be this year? Knowing the creativity involved with our past costumes, you know it will be good…
