Dates Of Visit: October 28, 2018
Location: Salem, MA
Halloween always seems to creep up on me (no pun intended). There are always so many fun, cool and interesting costumes each year that I visit Salem for Halloween. These photos were taken the weekend before Halloween (also known as “Halloweekend”). Since Halloween was on a weekday this year, Halloweekend is even busier in Salem than Halloween.
There were costumes of all kinds from scary to fun and everything in between.
Jason and Michael double teamed the Scream guy!
Looks like the tables have been turned, Jason and Michael.
Is there another Halloween sequel in the works? Halloween 86: Michael Meyers Jr!
But where’s the Tin Man?
This lady had some cool face paint. We both thought it was funny that, although smiling is the normal inclination when you are about to get your photo taken, she couldn’t smile because it might mess up her makeup.
If you forgot to put on your makeup, there were face painters there to help you ouy.
I love the creativity of the costumes people wore.
Scooby and friends are always a popular costume
Theses costumes are inconceivable!
Meanwhile, down at Fraggle Rock…
I hadn’t realized that Halloween was so popular with the WWE! (Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Ric “Nature Boy” Flair from left to right for those of you who are not fans)
These ladies were already ready for Christmas!
When I take photos, especially of pups and smaller people, I often kneel or bend down lower so I can shoot them from eye level or include the entire figure I am photographing. I have also noticed that when I do this some people, especially children, will copy me and get low as well! It always makes me smile.
Sometimes things can get out of hand during Halloweekend.
As much as I love all of the costumes during “Halloweekend” the kids costumes are always the best. It’s great seeing them enjoy the Halloween festivities.
The best photos during Halloween in Salem are often the shots you get at night. Many people wear costumes or have props and accessories that light up and look very cool during the evening hours.

Dogs enjoy Halloweekend also!
Mr. Man is a 10 year old Greyhound.
I found Waldo. Well, actually, his name is Wally, a 5 year old Shiba Inu.
Blitz, Juno and Daisy (from left to right) were all dressed up in the Harry Potter gear!
