One year when I was four or five, my sister dressed me up as Cinderella for Halloween. I had no idea anything was wrong until my dad came home and he started yelling at my sister. Apparently guys aren’t supposed to dress up like girls.

One year I was a giant baby. Why? A 13-year-old giant baby?

When I was in the seventh grade I dressed up as the Japanese hot pockets guy from the commercials. I made a fake mustache out of paper and carried around a box of hot pockets…but my costume was pretty spot on.

Probably a hula girl because by the end of the night all the straws fell off and only the flower belt was left.

When I was little I loved Jar-jar Binks and so I dressed up as him for Halloween when I was seven. It wasn’t until I was older that I realized how racist the character was. I basically dressed up as close to black face as possible without actually doing it.
