Halloween Memories – Aubrie Dionne

The last Halloween party I went to was a few years back at my brother’s farm. He had a bonfire going, and it was freezing, so we all huddled next to it. I dressed as Arwen from Lord of the Rings, and my husband was a cross between Legolas and Aragorn- he just had to wear the blond wig I guess. I don’t want to mortify him by putting his picture up on the blog, so I’ll leave you with mine!
These were store bought costumes, but growing up, my family didn’t have a lot of extra money, so my mom made all of our Halloween costumes from scratch. I didn’t realize how special it was at the time, but now I can appreciate all of her hard work. I grew up with my sister, and we had matching outfits every year. As toddlers we started out dressing up as tigers, and leopards. When I was old enough to choose for myself, I always picked a princess: an Egyptian princess, a fairy princess, a gypsy princess, a ballet princess, etc. My mom would get creative. One year she used old curtains for our gowns. They looked glossy and beautiful, but boy did they itch!

Looking back, I was the luckiest kid on the block!
