TBT to Halloween Inside NKPR

Posted on

 

When witches go riding and black cats are seen…the moon laughs and whispers, “ti’s near Halloween!

It’s that spooky time of year again…when witches casually walk down the hallway, ghosts nonchalantly fly by on streetcars, and chocolate is available in the masses. Inside NKPR, our favourite part of Halloween isn’t always the trendy new costumes…instead it’s often the hilarity of looking back at past Halloween costumes.

Whether it was the last-minute thrown-together-with-your-mother’s-jewelry kind, or a seriously thought-out I-had-this-planned-since-last-year kind of costume, we can’t get enough laughs out of our old costumes. In honour of the big day tomorrow, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite TBT Halloween costumes…
