Memory Day: Old Snapshots


This image was taken on Halloween in 1990. In this year, I was some sort of hybrid wizard / warrior. I was not necessarily trying to be a battle mage -- I probably just couldn't decide which costume to commit to. We were never allowed to buy costumes (since it's economically inefficient to spend money just for 1/365th of a year) so all of our ideas had to come from pieces around the house.

The hat / helm is construction paper, and the pendant is from my mom's jewelry box. The wooden sword with bagtie holster was made by the next-door neighbour of my grandparents, and had a long life until my ADHD friend, Tony, smashed it against a tree. On my left arm is a shield made out of a wicker paper plate holder. It was sure to deflect many attacks, both magical and physical.

Battle mages also wear Kanga ROOS.
