Ghosts of Halloweens Past

Alex and I regularly dress up for any occasion that may present itself, sometimes we just do it for fun.  For the past 3 years we have dressed as Batman and Robin for Halloween.  We’ve made it a tradition to dress as the crime fighting duo a week before Halloween in Portland because we always spend the designated Halloween party night in Hallowell, Maine with his extended family.

Here are a few pics of the past few years:





And here are our costumes for the party nights:


Joan and Don- Mad Men 2011

The Hulk and Black Widow – The Avengers 2012

Here we are as young trick-or-treaters:


And just for fun, here are a few of our other costumes from the years:

These are the best costumes yet! 😉

Another fun part of Halloween is that Alex’s birthday is always the day before, and I always make him a superhero dessert.

Happy Birthday, Hunny!

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

About Lauren Lear

Virginian to Mainiac, I moved to Maine for a photo internship with Aurora Photos and stayed because I met the man I would marry after winking at him on My photo business, Lola Studios, is where I pursue my love of fantasy photography using makeup and props to create alternate realities for my clients. I started this blog a little over a year ago to share the wedding prep, diy, food, and family experiences that I had. To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
