Halloween Memories

Two children trapped in the back of a station wagon on their way to church on Halloween night.

This was my Halloween memory, year after year. I felt cheated that I didn’t get to go Trick or Treating with the other kids. After this year, a lot of young people are going to be having similar memories of not getting to get dressed up or pester neighbors for candy. It will be interesting to read blog posts years from now after children have developed some perspective on current events. Will they have happy memories of an evening with their families, or will they go all out making sure their own kids and pets have a spectacular, spooky celebrations?

I obviously went the second route.

(This evil bitey monster was Geordie. He was willing to model pretty much anything for me. Not sot he Tobester…)

Whether reliving your own Halloween memories or spending an evening at the opera, this black cape with red satin lining is sure to make a dramatic statement. Sized to fit size S-M. Add a dash of the unconventional to your wardrobe today!

Available from my shop.


  1. I actually have a white velvet, satin lined cape. 🙂 Halloween for me was a great time, I lived in the country on a road that was pretty much all relatives so we got the big candy bars. Now, I live in the woods and no one comes to my house. Bear eats all the candy cuz I can’t eat chocolate.

  2. What a great photo of Geordie! The only thing I like about Halloween are dog costumes and real little kid costumes which are pretty much the same thing at a meta level, no? I grew up with normal suburban trick or treat traditions except we couldn’t spend on costumes so I wss often a ghost (bed sheet), an old man (father’s clothes and hat) or some other lame attempt. But I got candy and did plenty of “tricks” which nowadays would be called misdemeanors.

  3. Geordie is so cute! Makes me giggle! (He looks like he was a relative of my Cooper. 😉 )
    Sorry to see your sad face in the drawing. 😦
    I think people will be creative and have a fun, just different, Halloween this year!
    Growing up we got to go trick-or-treating every year. It was a blast. 🙂
    As adults, we’ve always helped with a HUGE community Halloween party, or celebrated with friends, OR just stayed home and handed out candy. All of those have been fun to me. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂
