Lil' Barnabas


Above is a photo of 11-year-old Steve Mavronis, taken in Halloween of 1970. Steve and his family wisely steered clear of the creepy-in-the-wrong-way Halloween costume created by Ben Cooper, choosing instead to create something more screen-accurate. Here's what he had to say about the costume:
"My late mom Florence and I were big fans from the original black and white Dark Shadows soap opera series until it ended in color. We used to watch it together. There was a Halloween day in elementary school and my mom made me the costume from scratch and did the makeup too. I was a big hit in 5th grade, LOL. Decades before the Twilight movies, Dark Shadows was very popular back in the day."

Very good in a creepy way. Or creepy in a good way?

I often dressed as a vampire for Halloween!

Great costume! I can see why you were a hit with your classmates, Steve!
