Everytime I see a little kid wearing a plastic costumee or an uncomfortable plastic mask, I get a little giddy. I guess part of it is because it was a much simpler time where people didn’t spend boatloads of money. A plastic costume from the local department store was like gold and would make you feel super special!
I think why I love this time is the imperfection. I love that the photos were blurry, off center and posed. We are so about getting the “perfect” photo these days with our digital camera. I love that these are awkward. You know Mom or Dad only took a couple of photos that night and didn’t process the photos till after Christmas!
Here’s some super cutes ones I found that I think you’ll like too!
Were you a kid of 70’s or 80’s and totally can relate to these photos? I was! I can’t remember too many of my costumes of yesteryear, but I do remember being a ballerina wearing a green sequined tutu in first grade. In 5th grade, I remember being a mouse and wearing a grey sweatsuit with a plastic mouse snout. What were you for Halloween when you were a kid?
Until next time Swellions!
