Shadow Shot Sunday - Dressing for the occasion

Clockwise from left: Julie (6), Stephen (12), Patti (ageless), Christina (7), Bobby (4) and Nicole (3)
Shadow Shot Sunday 2 returns a mere two days after the dress up/down day of Halloween. And even we grownups dress for the occasion...here is a print taken on October 1987, a family party at our apartment then in our neighboring small town of Derby CT. I know all the players in this pose, especially the witch, whom you know as Patti. Who is not really a witch, that is... Since we were not parents at the time, many a relative, then children, complied with amazing costumes - the scene including non-spooky shadows to complete the day...

My grandson was a superman this year and I must say that quite a number of them came to my door this Halloween. The cutest one was a toddler in a bumble bee costume though.
