Throwback Thursday - Halloween Costumes with Plastic Masks

Do you remember Halloween costumes with plastic masks?   I vividly remember going to the local Woolworth to shop for Halloween costumes.  They came in a box, with costume and mask.  The costumes were fun but the masks were hot and hard to breathe out of (two tiny air holes at the nose).   I recall eventually using the little half masks instead.  Much easier!
What did you like to dress as for Halloween?   As a little girl some of my favorite costumes were witch, princess, and angel.  My Mom loved to sew and made some cute costumes for me from patterns, too.  They were always my favorites!

I would love to hear your Halloween costume memories in the comments, below.

I totally remember those masks. Now, they kind of creep me out. My mom always made us costumes too. My favorite was a Minnie Mouse costume with the Red dress and white polka dots.

I totally remember those! My brother had a HeMan one that I remember well :-). Great memories. I don't think I ever wore one but I definitely remember them!
