In 1996, I went as Sylvia Plath

by nicolecallihan

I put on pearls and tights and fashioned an old box into an oven which I situated on my head with a coat hanger and some Scotch tape. It was my first year in the city, and I went to the famed NYC village parade. All night people asked me if I was a television set.

In 1983, I sprayed my hair green and went as a punk rocker. Every other year I can remember I was a hobo. How about you? Humor me with your litany of costumes.
