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...
I think we can all agree that the 90s were a pretty awesome time. Between the TV shows, the movies, and all the epic music, there was no shortage when it came to quality products. Even if we can't agree on the best of the media world, there is something that all of us can agree on: 90s pajamas are the best thing to have ever existed. There has never been a time in your life that you were more comfy or cozy, which was great because you probably spent a lot of time in those PJs, right? Whether you
Listen, getting married in the 80s was kind of wild. Not only did you have to deal with the big hair, mullets, and mustaches, but the fashion was a whole other bag of worms. There was no way to predict how insane the dresses were going to look, but it was always safe to assume they would be pretty wild. Puffy sleeves, shiny fabric, and a lot of ruffles seemed to be the norm at the time. Let's not forget that return to the Victorian era that saw women trying to dress like an old-time princess. But, we brave the
Remember when you were growing up and you'd go hang out in the living room for hours and hours, never leaving your spot on the couch? Well, honestly I can't pretend much has changed, other than the fact that the couch has fewer flowers on it than ever before. Most people stick to a single color now, but back in the day there was apparently nothing more desirable than a good floral pattern. Big flowers, small flowers, pinks ones, or blue, every combination was waiting for you. We've all seen a lot of bad couches in our days, but when
I think we can all agree that we all have a bit of an obsession with our past. There's something special about the time that we grew up that makes us want to hold onto it harder and harder as we get older. Sure, maybe we are just trying to put off the inevitable, or maybe we are just finally capable of getting all the stuff we wish we could have gotten as kids. There's also the fact that now that we are now living on our own, we get to pick the decor and if we want it all
