    When I was younger, I was a clown, fireman, Frankenstein, cheerleader, but never a bum. Though they say I look like one…

    My Mom was no seamstress….
    all three of us were usually “ghosts”…
    wearing old sheets with crudely scissored eye-holes.

    After years of begging, we each got a cheap boxed costume….

    Mine was “clown” ….
    shiny, flimsy rayon with white-printed ruff and buttons, tied in the back.

    Our masks weren’t plastic, but starched and coated buckram.

    Over several years of warm breath and snowy nights, they got soft and ragged around the mouth and nose holes….
    so when my costume was handed down to my sister, she refused to wear the mask.

    When I dredge up memories of 1950’s Halloweens, I can still smell and taste that damp, white-painted buckram.

    Felt and flannel dragons hand sewed by their mother.
    The costumes are still around, now it is hard to imagine the kids being small enough they would fit into them.

    I remember my brother and I going out as Indians… that was back before the PC days.

    Old skirt & blouse of mom’s. Never liked the masks. Couldn’t breathe and they didn’t fit well over my glasses.
