Cute Halloween Costumes, '80s Style

Today, of course, is Halloween. When I was a kid we never did anything for Halloween. I remember one time when my sister and I went trick-or-treating with friends and I think we all dressed up like Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, or some other '80s teeny boppers. I have a terrible memory, but I don't think we ever dressed up in costumes at our house for Halloween when we were little. If we did, there are no pictures to prove it. I may have attended a school party or two in a costume but nothing specific comes to mind.

On the other hand, my husband has some really cute pictures with his siblings in their Halloween costumes! My mother-in-law is very creative. She always comes up with the cutest decorating ideas, so I think that when her kids were little, Halloween and birthday parties were her time to shine.

Hope you enjoy these early '80s Halloween costumes! (Yes, these were posted with permission!)

I think this one is my favorite. That's my hubby in the middle, looking so happy to be a policeman! His sis is a graduate and his brother is a daddy (how cute is that?).

In this one, my sis-in-law is a baby doll, hubby is a football player, and brother-in-law is a Rubik's Cube. :-)


Hubby and his brother are robots here and their big sis is Pippi Longstocking (yes, that's her real hair, supported by clothes hangers)!



Happy Halloween!

Oh my goodness! How cute are those pictures! The only thing that really dates it is the Rubik's cube. Man, costumes were so sweet and innocent then. Thanks for sharing!

When I was about 5 years old I was determined that I was going to be a motorcycle cop one day just like on CHiPs. So I was pretty darn excited about being a policeman for Halloween. Mom even sewed a light blue line down each side of the pants to make them look more like a police uniform. At another time, Dad arranged a tour of the local police station.

Funny how things changed. I don't think I could cut it as a cop. Especially one that rides a motorcycle.
