What NOT to be for Halloween

What NOT To Be for Halloween

In my sophomore year of college, I went to my first Halloween sorority/fraternity party.

Yes, I was in a sorority in college. Someday I’ll tell you the adorable story about how Even Steven was president of his fraternity, and I was president of my sorority. Oh – I guess I just did. The end.

Anyway – my sophomore year Halloween fraternity party.


Can you guess which person is me?

How was I supposed to know that a Halloween party with a fraternity was an excuse to look super cute?

Mean Girls hadn’t even been filmed yet – Lindsay Lohan was still just a baby. Seriously – how was I supposed to know?

While everyone else had fun at the party, I was the scary outcast. My sorority sisters thought I was a really creepy fraternity guy trying to talk to them.

And the fraternity guys thought I was a townie trying to crash their party.

What were some of your most memorable Halloween costumes?

  1. I worked at the Circuit Clerk’s office back in the 80’s and I had made a Big Bird costume for my nephew. The body part of the costume didn’t fit me, but the head and feet part did and I was lucky enough to find the perfect yellow skirt and sweater set. I walked into work with the Big Bird head and feet on. Standing in the elevator with judges and state’s attorneys was the absolute funniest. All I kept saying was “I tawt I saw a putty tat”.

  2. Oh too funny Anna and you just brought back some Halloween party memories from the past for me too. One year my very good friend decided that we would go as the Pussy Cat Dolls for a party in NYC. One thing lead to another and let’s just say I ended up dating the guy dressed as SpongeBob for a few months. Thanks for sharing and for making take a bit of a walk down memory lane 🙂

  3. Awesome photo all of you looks enjoying for the Halloween…Its a great memories doing this kind of party..

  4. I can’t stop laughing and have tears streaming down my face. It’s just so perfect. Everyone in their cute sorority girl Halloween costumes and … you. Just awesome.

  5. I would have loved to have you as my sorority president. My freshman year, before I’d pledged and had friend that would have shielded me from the shame, I came as a victorian-era vampire, complete with expensive fang caps. This, not at a party, but during a regular school day that also happened to be Halloween. As I walked across the parking lot, I realized I was one of approximately none people who had dressed up. I decided to ditch and go cry my make-up off at home. Unfestive asshole college students.

  6. I was usually the one putting together a costume from whatever I could find in the “junk” kitchen drawer or in the depths of my closet. I am not sure it’s a good thing that I seemed to have quite a bit of clothing that could be used towards a Halloween costume.

  7. HAHA I love it! I was a pot plant in college and got a lot of attention for that one. I just wore a green dress and had a friend paint pot leaves all over me. I had people pretend to “smoke me” all night. It was really annoying.

  8. My roommate in college always dressed up as a dead something. For a couple of years, it was a dead Arab but that was before modern times and it was a lot funnier than it would be today. INterestingly, her kids don’t go as dead anythings!

  9. OMG I really can’t imagine! I went as a cat one year – purple cons, black tshirt and black shorts with a shoelace as the band that I stapled construction paper ears on. It was a white trash cat I guess. Maybe I should have gone with the ghost?!

  10. Oh! My friends mom made me a super cute Tinkerbell outfit! It was epically cute..but them i met the now hubs. He didn’t like it because it was TOO cute and made others look at me… Then i gained 10 lbs and it didn’t fit. So some kid prob found it at a thrift store that year. I don’t even have pics of it 🙁 but it was super cute!

  11. It’s going to be awkward when I make that picture the wallpaper for my phone, which I WILL DO because it’s way funnier than any pictures of my kids.
