Childhood Halloween.

My brother is Admiral Ackbar; a testament to his greatness.

I am, apparently, Q*Bert; a testament to my nerdiness.

I have zero recollection of this event.

I love how the shirts have to say "HEY THIS IS THE CHARACTER THAT I AM DRESSING UP FOR HALLOWEEN IN CASE YOU MISSED IT OR ARE DUMB"

Like hale says, definitely a classic Halloween photo...always with an in-camera flash and living room decor showing. Nice color in this whole thing, btw.

I don't understand how people couldn't understand the concept for this theme day....how hard is it to hole a photo in your photo.

They didn't give you enough nose, though. What's Q-bert without that long proboscis?

There is some people that I don't actually believe has brothers or any family. They defy the laws of nature and just create themselves. That said, I do not believe you have a brother.

I love those old costumes where they put the face on the actual shirt. When you got too hot and tired of wearing the mask, people still knew who you were. Q*Bert is too good.

Big brothers. I do recollect a Halloween as Ernie and Bert. I still have the unibrow.

I like the thought of Admiral Ackbar wearing and Admiral Ackbar t-shirt. Like when Lemmy wears a Motorhead t-shirt.

PS: I love that halloween costumes in the late 70s-late 80s are just a mask and a t-shirt with a picture of what you are supposed to be printed on it.

Blastro says:
Amazing.

I was Chewbacca the year it was like 95 degrees on Halloween. I would've been better off being Q-Bert, but I wasn't really allowed to play video games.

@Mackle thanks for your understanding. I hear from fincannon that you are having some problems yourself. We have briefly relocated to another region. I stepped in to an internet klub to check my e-mail, and wanted to let you know we are most likely heading towards the capital this weekend. In doing so, internet will be readily available.

'Stache looks great.

I love it :D

Also agree that looking at many older photos of childhood brings back very few recollections lol. i guess thats why the photos have so much value to us.. :)
