Trick-or-treating was the highlight of fall. When you're a kid, there is nothing more important than your trick-or-treating plans. You have to pick the right neighborhood, you have to figure out which houses are giving out full size candy bars, and of course you need to have the best costume.
There is no point to going trick-or-treating if you don't put the effort in. Sure, some of the older kids would just throw a cape on and pretend like it was enough, but when we were young we took it seriously.
We didn't have a lot of control over the costumes because we were young and had no money, but our parents did their best and helped us realize our dreams. No matter what we wanted to be, they would find a way. How many of these 90s costumes look familiar to you?
