(Not So) Wordless Wednesday - Post 229: 1960 Hallowe'en Costumes

 I am posting photographs from my family collections for (Not So) Wordless Wednesday (you know me, I can't go wordless!).

Here is a photograph from the Marion (Seaver) (Braithwaite) Hemphill family collection handed down from my Aunt Marion in 2000 after her passing. 

This is a Hallowe'en costume picture from about 1960 in San Diego.  The three kids are Randy, Scott (in the Lion costume, holding his head) and Stan.  Our mother made the costume (or bought it ... I'm not sure).  Why don't Randy and Stan have a costume?  Well, we've outgrown the deal (I was 17!) - we just went trick or treating for the candy on the way down to and back from to the Hallowe'en carnival at Brooklyn School.  Scotty was really into it, though, and was a great lure for the candy contributors to open the door.

Check out the flattops!  Butch Wax worked!  Stan had a ducktail in back, but I could never get my hair to do it.  

I think that this is the only Hallowe'en picture that I have in my digital photo collection.  It took awhile to find it!
