HALLOWEEN THROUGH THE YEARS

I’ve been so excited about this post for the entirety of October, when I thought of the idea I branded myself a genius and that is how I will remain for the rest of my life. Basically, I’ve gone through loads of old photo albums and compiled a selection of my favourite Halloweeny/Autumnal photographs of myself. I love looking through baby photos, inluding everyone elses, so I thought this would be an amazing idea for Halloween and Christmas. It’s fun to be nosy and see how cute everyone was as a baby sometimes!

I kind of struggled to find a lot of baby Halloween photos – I assume my parents didn’t dress me up until I was old enough to decide what I wanted to be on my own. I absolutely will not be a parent like that, my child will be a pumpkin from year 1 and something equally as cute every year. I’ve always had a thing for dressing up though, and I’m honestly not even sure that this first photo is actually from Halloween. I wore this Swan Lake dress to death, literally everyday for about 6 months, so there’s a good chance that this photo of myself and my childhood best friend, Sophie, is actually from summer. I couldn’t leave it out though, I was so extra with the full headband and floaty sleeve things. It’s painful to look at now, all I’m thinking is “why did I do this?!”…

Next up is a more Autumnal than Halloween one, although that outfit is a bit too co-ordinated…These woods are behind my house and feature in a lot of photos, I go there for most of my shoots and it seems like it’s been that way since I was a baby. I do always get jealous of people who have nice white houses they can use as their backgrounds because I find shooting in those woods gets a bit tiring and the backdrop just isn’t what I want, but I take what I can get. It makes me laugh that red is my favourite colour now, and I think that’s the only colour my mum dressed me in when I was younger. She said I really suited red as a baby, but does that really justify the full red ensemble, complete with red wellies?

These two Halloween ones go hand in hand, as they’re from the same night. I vaguely remember it, I don’t have a lot of memories of Halloween as I don’t think it’s something we’ve really celebrated a lot. Especially since me and my siblings are older now, we haven’t done trick or treating in a long time. These photos make me really happy though, the group one is of myself, my mum and some friends and neighbours – we all went trick or treating in a group. The one of me and my mum makes me laugh – I’m stuffing a cupcake in my mouth and my mum has a pumpkin that I painted on her cheek. I’m not sure what she was supposed to be (maybe nothing) but I remember I was definitely a vampire, it was my favourite thing to dress up as. Note the eerily pale face and horrific eyebrows.

I had to go digging for this last photo, but it was absolutely so worth it because now I have it in my possession forever. I remember this Halloween so well, my mum and I both went as Daphne from Scooby Doo and I was annoyed because she got a red wig and she told me I was too young for one. I honestly wish I was doing something for Halloween this year so I could go as Daphne again – Scooby Doo was my favourite show when I was younger and I still have a lot of love for the movies, I watch them when I need some cheering up. The whole matching outfits thing was pretty tragic in itself but I’m still a tad salty about the fact that she upstaged me completely and had a much better outfit than me. White tights, Lauren? Really?
