A photo tribute to the art of Halloween.

Sunday, October 18, 2009



I LOVE Halloween, dress-up and all things spooky. So, needless to say, I can't wait until October 31st this year... and every year. I am still currently debating over a couple of different costumes, but will be sure to post photos (as I hope-hope-hope you do, as well!) after the holiday. This will be my first Vegas Halloween and I can't wait to see how this city celebrates. Until then, I've posted some of my favorite Halloween pictures of family, friends and moi.

Oh, that picture up top? It's circa 1981 0r '82, was entirely my sister's idea (thanks, Monica) and says a whole lot about us still. It's definitely one of my all-time favorites. If I had access to a scanner right now, I'd share a lot more oldie-but-goodies of the two Bailey sisters, but we'll have to save that post for another day.
































This last picture of my sister and her family may just be the very best Halloween picture... ever. Don't you agree?

Oh, and maybe you noticed, but my gorgeous friend Katie has been my Halloween partner in crime for going on ten years now. It makes me really sad we won't be dressing up, drinking, eating too much candy and celebrating together this year. I hope Jenner knows he has a tough act to follow as my Halloween sidekick.

Now, do tell... What are you going to be this Halloween?

  4. You have had so many great Halloween costumes! Very impressive. I still have no idea what I'm going to be, but I know there will be hundreds of different parties here, so I better find something.

  5. hahaha! these are so cute. i love you as minnie mouse.

    i don't think we're gonna dress up this year because our only plans are to get coffee on 2nd street and walk around to look at all the cute little kids. if i need to dress up, i'll be audrey hepburn since my hair is brown now. :)

    but as soon as we have a good excuse to dress up and enough money to make our costumes, we're going to be margot and richie tenenbaum.

  11. Oh man! I haven't even thought about halloween yet this year! I'm in grad school to be a therapist, so last year I put on a bunch of striped, quirky clothes and made a name tag that said "Dr. Seuss, PhD." I'm probably most proud of that even though most people saw me and went, "Wah-Wah!"
