Halloween in the late 1970s and early 1980s found many young kids my age wearing plastic costumes with hard plastic, matching masks held on by stretchy, rubber bands stapled to the masks on each side.
If you grew up during this time period, I am pretty sure you know exactly what I mean.
For me, this wasn’t the case. My mom handmade my costumes, as she was an expert sewing pro with her sewing machine and patterns.
One year, I was a witch, and she actually repurposed fabric from one of her own party dresses. Another year, she created a costume that turned me into Laura Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie. She crafted a cheerleader costume one year, too.
Although the costume did indeed change each and every year, there was one thing that I counted on and remained the same.
