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?
Nothing is better than a bit poncho with the character you want to be printed right on it
It was always great (and a little creepy) when our parents participated
Two of the most relevant things of the 90s: OJ Simpson and 101 Dalmations
Plastic masks and very puffy Power Rangers
But at least they had the proper accessories
Raccoon Mario is arguably the best Mario
It's a good thing it says what it is right on it because I don't know that you could identify it otherwise...
The costumes just keep getting better...
Clown costumes didn't have the same spooky quality that they do now...
I don't think the Ninja Turtle's shells have pictures of themselves on it, but I guess whatever works!
Everyone had to have their pumpkin buckets with them
It's really the only time of the year where it is perfectly normal to see a Ninja Turtle, princess and Frankenstein all in the same picture
Because it was October a lot of us had to wear sweaters under our costumes
Or sometimes we had to wear full snow suits under our garbage bags with a picture drawn on it and hope for the best...
Growing up we didn't necessarily get a lot of privacy. Sure, we had our bedrooms, but it always felt like anyone could just walk in. The only truly private place was the bathroom. The bathroom was a pretty important room for a 90s girl, and yes I know that's a weird sentence, but it's true. That's where you learn all about makeup, it's where you get to try out all the coolest hairstyles, and it's where you get to lock the door and ignore your sibling's annoying insults for a little while. These products were the ones that sustained us
Graduating seniors celebrate by getting all dressed up and dancing the night away with their peers for the last time.It's a night to remember, which is why dozens of photos are taken at prom. But I'm sure there are some celebrities who wish their prom photos were never leaked online. If you thought your prom photos were awkward, you've seen nothing yet...1. Barack Obama TimeThese four look like they had a grand time at their senior prom. They're draped in leaves and flowers, which means one thing - this photo was taken at a high school in
It seems as though in every family there is someone who is obsessed with horses. I don't think that this is necessarily specific to the 80s or 90s, but it did seem to gain a little bit of mainstream attention. When I say obsessed, I don't mean the people who would ask for a pony once and then give up, I mean people like my sister who asked for a pony every year until she was old enough to make a presentation as to why she should have a horse. This is a real thing that happened... And it actually
When the internet started being used by kids all around the country, there was one site that we all needed to visit. Neopets was the most important website on the internet if you were between the ages of 10-13. It was every middle school kids most important obsession, other than their beanie babies, but somehow these virtual pets felt more real than our tangible toys. You would pick a creature, name it, feed it, play with it, and take it on adventures every single day. You would spin a wheel, helping you collect neopoints, and you could use those points
