    10 Worst Halloween Costumes - Mania.com

    Wow....when you think about it, the idea for a costume with a face and shirt was pretty lame back in those days. But what did we know back when we were five, six, or seven...we wore these. It's laughable now thinking about it. Some memories should be kept locked forever. This is one of them.

    I used to feel sorry for kids that had to wear those plastic bags with the terrible masks. My mom made us really good costumes.

    Sad to say...in the Rural Mid-west...that's all you had.
    You went up to the local "Big Wheel" or local Dime store and you picked your plastic mask, vinyl cape/costume and that was it.

    We only went trick-or-treating a couple of times, and then we stayed home.
