I do remember one Halloween in particular when I was in high school. The marching band had a Thursday night practice that fell on trick-or-treat night and we decided that there would be a costume contest amongst all the different instrument groups. The flute/piccolo line chose to be Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Being the gangly brunette in the bunch, I got to be Snow White.
I don't remember very many Halloween nights when I actually went trick or treating. I remember the feeling of excitement, the avoidance of certain scary houses, the dumping of the candy on the carpet when I got home to inventory the loot. It was a much anticipated holiday for me.
We didn't buy a Snow White costume that year. My Mom instead took a tank top, some flowy material for sleeves, and the most hideous yellow polyester for the skirt then turned it in to the most wonderful princess dress that you ever did see from found materials. I still wonder why she had that yellow polyester, but it worked. It truly did.
