Throwback Halloween – Call for Submissions!

Tags:, ,

Hey, you know what’s fun? Looking at photos of yourself and your friends from past Halloweens – either because your costumes were fantastic, or terrible, or because you were an adorable little tyke.

We at the Gallery would like to see your best/worst/funniest/most adorable/scariest costumes from Halloweens past! If you have one you’d like to submit, please send to us one of the following ways:

Post on our Facebook page

Tweet at Acadia or me or Julie

Post it somewhere and put the link in the comments below.

In the meantime, here are some of our gallery staff from years past – enjoy! (This may be updated as some of the lazier members of the staff still owe me costume photos as of right now.)

We’d love to see whatever you might have to show us – you, your kids, your spouse, your ex, we don’t care – if it’s entertaining, send it to us and we’ll do a follow up post closer to Halloween with our favorites. Yay! #bestholiday #ourfavoriteholiday

BTW – By giving us your picture you are giving us permission to use your submission in a future post

I'm the President of Not Helping Acadia at this site, as well as Editor-in-Chief because none of these monkeys whacking on keyboards can spell. My username has now been explained, you're welcome. If you don't like me I don't care. Become a writer for the site and post your own garbage then, you plebe.

    I’m safe. My brother took all the photo albums and never gave them back. There was one clockwork orange Halloween complete with bowler hats and long johns.

          I’ve never seen this movie (Clockwork Orange). I await the hate.

            Since it’s also a famous novel by Anthony Burgess… Seriously though Kubrick is a genius. Watch anything by Kubrick that doesn’t have Tom Cruise in it.

            Yeah I’m kind of anti Kubrick because of the raping.

    I can’t believe I gave that to you. I had literally just woken up. What was I thinking?

      You were thinking, “Look at this tremendous photo of me from my youth! I can’t wait to share it!” 😉

    Your throwback pics are great and yes it is nice to look back at things like this. Halloween is only recently starting to be celebrated where I live so eventually I will have some throwbacks of my own.

    I’m still not sure what I’m going to do for halloween. Since DC comics have been huge this year, maybe wonder woman?!

    Look at all these awesome costumes! I haven’t dressed up in years, but when I was younger I had a lightning bug costume that would light up! I thought it was so cool!

    I think we are going to have some fun costumes for this Halloween and we are already so excited for the day to come. These are some fun costumes, the ones that are amazing are Cheetah and the Beetlejuice!

    I haven’t been to a Halloween party ever. I definitely need to go to try to just experience how it feels like.
