Why do I get the feeling that our friends at YA Highway are trolling for embarrassing pictures? This week's question:


Source: Family Bites
Ingrid: Well, I really liked the woodland fairy outfit I wore to my friend's Halloween party last year!

But my best costume ever would probably be the one I had when I was six years old. My parents turned me into a "real" robot with silver tubing for my arms and legs, and big silver boxes to cover my head and body. I wore a pair of those fake glasses with lights that glowed when I pushed a button. The only problem was, the tubing kept my arms pulled out away from my body, like I was draped over a hanger. That got tiring really fast...

Stephanie: One year I was Rogue from X-Men. That was my favorite. One of these days I'm going to redo it.

Sarah: Strawberry Shortcake. I smelled awesome.

Kristan: Goodness, I can't even remember the last time I dressed up... Maybe freshman year of college? I went as a ninja, because I had black pants, a black shirt, and a second black shirt to wrap around my face for the ninja mask.

To be honest, I've always been kind of lazy about costumes. Even as a kid. My Pocahontas costume was a beige t-shirt with torn fringes. I repurposed a "Queen of Hearts" costume to be about 5 different things -- including the "Firebird" pictured here. And one year I wrapped a flowered cloth around my waist (with jeans on underneath) and said I was "Hawaiian." So, you know, this really isn't the best question for me to be answering...

I much prefer seeing great costumes on Halloween, as I man the candy bowl at the door!


Join in the fun by leaving your answer in the comments here, at YA Highway, on your own blog, or on Twitter (and be sure to use the hashtag #roadtripwednesday!).

I love Halloween costumes- they're so much fun! When I was little, my grandma would make them for me. My favorite was probably a pirate, though I loved my Kim Possible costume (complete with red wig) too, lol.
