Your worst Halloween costume when you were a kid

  • My worst one was a baby. It was a last minute costume, I was 12 and it was terrible. I was Pipi Longstocking one year and I loved it. My mom even put wire in my pigtails so they stuck out.

  • the ONE year i had a costume for halloween as a kid (before i finally got to dress up as a junior in HIGH SCHOOL at our rain festivals. HAHA!) i was about 10 years old, and we got to hand out candy to the other kids (with little notes with a frog that said, "GOD IS WISER"..... yeh.) my sister decided to help me dress up. i was a clown. wore my dads clothes, and shoes.... used my mom's makeup. it was bad. but it was a good memory... because my sister and i never were allowed to!
