SINCERELY 'FRO ME TO YOU

I never really did Halloween as a kid. It was my birthday, so I usually had people bring the candy to me - no need to dress up and go begging for it. So, when I went to college, I used to dress up and do the whole campus Halloween roller-skating party. This was the year I decided to be a roller-skating Goth. I'm not sure what my friend Tina was supposed to be, but she was really shiny.



For more fun memories (and a really embarrassing photo), check out We Are That Family.

Roller-skating goth. That's good. I remember one year I went goth and told everyone I was the tooth fairy's evil twin.

Got a lot of candy, maybe they were scared of me.

Great photo!

I love Halloween! And I always dress up right along with the kids.

Wow, a roller skating goth? Now you're gonna go and give all those little emo kids an idea! Although, those skinny pants they wear are so dang tight, I doubt they could even bend over to get the skates on...that and their crooked hair cuts would impede their vision!

You were alot more creative with your Halloween costume than I ever was. Witch, cheerleader, cat, repeat if necessary!!

The 4th of July and Halloween are tied for my favorite holidays. I love dressing up for Halloween. I don't know if I've ever missed a year dressing up. So fun!
Love the pic! :)

That is just too great! I've honestly never seen a roller skating goth kid. Maybe that's not part of their handbook?!

My best halloween costume ever was as KISS with 3 friends - in full make up and costume. We spent weeks hot gluing rhinestones and painted styrofoam all over our clothes. It was awesome!

Maybe I'll be a rollar-skating goth this year. I always have thought I missed my calling and should have been a little goth or emo kid when I had the chance.

I love your shiny friend. :)
