How it's done:



My mother and two half-sisters (and a mysterious clown-faced little girl), Halloween on the Island where I grew up, 1970's. I have no idea what they're all supposed to be, but these pictures haunt me nonetheless, as do all the pictures my mother has saved from those long ago, far away times. Although, when you're out on the Island, they don't always feel so far away...

As for me, I'm not even sure I'll be going anywhere this year. Halloween has never been one of my favorite holidays. I can never think of a good costume, there's just too much pressure! And this year, being separated from my cache of amazing thrift stores has limited my options even further. Aaand I have work the next day. But I hear tell of a party somewhere including a T.Rex cover band, and if this be so, then clearly I have no choice but to attend!

i am in love with these photos... they seem timeless. i had no idea if they were current or old until you said 1970's.
