BlogDH Panel: #FlashbackFriday, Halloween 2k14 edition

Last year, Blog rejoiced when Halloween fell on #ThrowbackThursday. This year, we are not so fortunate: Halloween coincides with #FlashbackFriday, a watered down pseudo-version of #TBT, the classic and culturally accepted weekly Instagram holiday. We could not, however, resist getting involved in the most overkill social media-induced nostalgia trip of the year just because of the pesky Gregorian calendar…so, we have curated a BlogPanel of simpler days when Halloween wasn’t about muploading from the Whiskey Republic and out-punning your frenemies. Happy #FlashbackFriday!

To clarify, Tucker Iverson is the one on the left. He’s the robot with the blue nipples gold pipe-cleaner antennae. Tucker proudly notes that he “made it myself. It’s whatever.”


Kenji Endo “missed the memo about the Jabbawockeez costumes (I’m the vending machine…).”10256592_915197295159673_2180432515963868023_n

After Carolyn Rachofsky mastered the Big Cat look…


…she reinvented the Halloween trope altogether. Here she is below, wearing a lion’s mask under her beard. Carolyn adds, “I‘m only posting this because I like humiliating myself.”10384025_10204443604906893_1463036536810551929_n
