Reflecting on My Favorite Group Halloween Costumes

Growing up as a triplet, Halloween was a very fun holiday. Especially since my parents enjoyed having my brothers and I dress up together. We would always dress as characters from a popular movie or TV show. I remember that I used to hate it so much because I felt like I was being forced, but I have come to appreciate it more now that I am in college and a little bit more grown up. So now that Halloween is just around the corner and I am feeling nostalgic, here are some of my favorite group dress-ups that my brothers and I did together when we were little.

Anakin, Padme, and Obi Wan Kenobi from Star Wars

Initially, I hated this idea so much. Especially since I am not a fan of Star Wars at all. In fact, in my FYP last year, when my professor asked who liked Star Wars, I was the only one who said that they did not like it. But looking back, it was a fun idea, especially since my brothers and I got to carry around lightsabers and fake blasters.

The Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz

This has to be my favorite out of the Halloween costumes we did. The Wizard of Oz was a movie that my brothers and I would watch frequently with my dad when we were growing up. So, it will always hold a special place in my heart. Anyways, one Halloween, I was the Cowardly Lion, while my brothers were the Tin Man and the Scarecrow. All I can say is that the pictures came out adorable and it would be perfect for a #TBT post on Instagram.

Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, and Captain Hook from Peter Pan

Peter Pan was also a movie that I watched frequently growing up. I remember sitting on the couch with my grandparents and watching it on their VCR. So, another year, my dad decided to dress my brothers and me up as Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, and Captain Hook. The pictures that year also came out really cute, so maybe that could be another Instagram post.

Tigger, Pooh, and Eeyore

What is a nostalgic Halloween article without, yet another, Disney themed costume? Dressing up as Eeyore while my brothers were Tigger and Pooh was also a really fun costume. Especially since blue was my favorite color and I was quiet just like Eeyore. So my personality matched the costume, which was a bonus.

 Although I do write from personal experience quite frequently, I don’t like to talk too much about what life was like before I came to St. Lawrence. But with the Halloween theme in mind, I was just feeling really inspired to write about what Halloween was like for me back home. And I hoped that writing about this would inspire people to get in the spirit and start thinking about their costume ideas, as well as reflect on their amazing Halloween memories.
