Old-School Costumes

 These came up on my Facebook memories yesterday. (I may have shared these on my blog in previous years):

Though I remember these things well, I cannot recall ever wearing one of these. I guess my mom was good at making me costumes. I was totally into Strawberry Shortcake and The Smurfs, so I wonder why I never went after either of these costumes. I never even chose to be either of these characters for Halloween, which is surprising to me. 

I saw one of these in a thrift store once, of a character I'd never heard of. It was  surprising because I have never seen any before or since then. 

This concept seemed weird  and is hard to imagine today, with characters like SpongeBob.

My daughter loved Strawberry Shortcake.

You know... I don't remember ever wearing one of those masks and I didn't get them for my kids because I was worried they wouldn't be able to see well enough wearing them.
