Happy Halloween! As you know, we ModEmployees love a good costume, so we couldn’t resist raising one more Halloween-y hurrah by sharing our most memorable costumes from when we were kids.
Above, on the left, our Writing Development Editor Hannah showed that she was truly wise beyond her years in her “old man” costume.
Then, we have Product Manager Fiona in the dramatic role of The Phantom of the Opera’s Christine DaaÃ©. “When I was in preschool, I told my mom I wanted to be Christine for Halloween,” Fiona says. “She was able to convince me that this prom dress from Goodwill was the perfect Christine dress. Here’s the best part: On Halloween morning, I flew to Washington, DC to spend the holiday with my cousins . . . in this outfit.”
Meanwhile, writer Laura Beth dug up this old gem from 1987, when she and her brother went as Smurfs. “My grandmother, who did therapeutic clowning for years, always did our makeup!” she says.
Finally, we have this clownish photo of our videographer, Jon, who says he doesn’t remember this costume at all and can’t explain why he’s wearing a clown face with an Indiana shirt and jeans.
Also a vision in white was Molly, our Fashion Writing Team Lead. “I was going as Juliet from the epically angsty ’90s Romeo + Juliet, but just look like a Christmas tree topper,” says Molly.
Aren’t they all adorable? Now, you tell us: What was your best Halloween costume as a kid? And, what are you going as today?
