Obsessive Halloween Nostalgia: Breathing and Seeing Optional


Actually, I'm not really that nostalgic for these plastic masks.  They were pretty creepy, even one as innocent as Apple Dumplin'.

You know what?  This costume isn't that disturbing.  If you want to see disturbing, click here.
Or read about how much Strawberry Shortcake's baby sister has evolved through the years here.

I prefer this Apple Dumplin'.
And this Strawberry Shortcake, for that matter.

And this Lime Chiffon and Raspberry Tart...


By the way, Melissa at Julia's Bookbag hit the nail on the head with this post.  Bless her, this is one of the first of her blog posts I read after we "met" on Pinterest.  LOVE. IT.

Oh - and I want this.

    1. Tee hee! I told you I would! There was a picture of me with my grandma's neighbor girl in her Strawberry Shortcake picture, but it was pretty whited out and I was afraid it wouldn't scan well. :o)

  2. ha ha ha!!! love the title of today's post! I'm trying to wrack my brain -- I cannot for the life of me recall if I had some kind of Strawberry Shortcake Halloween costume -- I did have a Casper costume with that kind of mask and some kind of pajamey outfit.

    OMG. That tarty Apple Dumplin adult costume! Oh the horror. WHY must they tartify Strawberry Shortcake stuff, the sweetest little toys back in the day? *shakes head and sighs*

    1. Isn't the adult costume gross? But the new design of the dolls and cartoon leaves me shaking my head, too. When I surprised the girls with an old Strawberry Shortcake on Valentines Day, they couldn't stop exclaiming how cute she was! They prefer the old toys, too.

    1. Isn't it crazy? All of it - Halloween being so near, that awful adult costume, '80s plastic costumes? Hehehe. Thanks! I have a picture of the porch set as wallpaper on my phone. It looks otherworldly.
