Big Wicked dguzman, sorta

Beth at Cup of Coffey is hosting the Big Wicked Halloween Pageant this year, in which we must post childhood photos of us in costume for Halloweening.

However, my mom keeps our childhood photo albums in her home, sacrosanct and safe from our grubby little paws! What's a kid to do? I wanted to show you that awesome Frankenstein costume circa 1971, or even me in a bunny suit (made by my mom!) circa 1969, but alas--foiled again.

So by way of lameness, here's me "in costume" as a hopelessly nerdy little baby dyke. That's me on the left, with sister Mary (and her creepy doll) on the right:
Check me out, sportin' the red-white-and-blue. Even then I was sooooo American.

You can NEVER go wrong with a baby dyke! You were way too cute a bird, Dguzman!

And your link will be posted on my site in two minutes ...

Well, my costume problems are solved. I'm going as a baby dyke this year.

dguzman said...

Beth--*blush*

Beckeye--there ya go!

Matty Boy said...

I had that shirt, too! It didn't turn me into a dyke, thank Hera, but I do likes the ladies!

Bubs said...

I dig those cool blue flared pants, they go great with that striped shirt. Was this anytime near 1976? I remember a lot of us sporting those combinations in 75-76.

"baby dyke"--I think you need to start work on a prototype of a doll based on yourself in this picture. It's a winner!

Randal Graves said...

Dykes can't be American, haven't you been paying attention you Marxist socialist commie fascist?

GETkristiLOVE said...

Bravo, you even have the baby dyke mullet!

Gifted Typist said...

Baby Dyke. Ha! You should brand that and get Mattel Corp to sell it this Christmas in a store near you

Dale said...

Those flares have flair! Nice photo baby dyke :-)

kirby said...

Be thankful you just had the shirt. My brother got a whole red, white, and blue bedroom in 1976. Try throwing something like that into the rag bin.

You were an adorable baby dyke! And smart too, look at the distance you are maintaining from that creepy doll.

Flannery Alden said...

Love the couch...and what a cutie pie you are!

Happy Halloween!

Flannery and Doc

Nerdy? I don't know . . . you look pretty dang cute to me! I love all that curly hair.

CDP said...

Have Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel picked up your spec script for "Baby Dyke" yet? I look forward to the pilot episode. Seriously, you were an adorable child.

dguzman said...

Matty Boy--you can be on my team anytime.

Bubs--actually, I think this was back in about 1970ish, from the looks of my sister and me. I celebrated the bicentennial in 6th grade, and thus I was probably at least a quarter-inch taller by then...

Randal--you and your gotcha comments!

GKL--how can you tell with all the curls!?

Gifted Typist--"baby dyke" is a classic label, but perhaps you're right--maybe it's just waiting for the right marketer to take it GLOBAL!

Dale--ah yes, the polyester bell bottoms were pretty much all the rage in my closet.

Kirby--ouch.

Barbara B--hee hee. She carried that thing EVERYWHERE.

Flannery--I think that was my grandma's couch--classic, no?

Enc--you're so sweet.

CDP--a doll AND a TV series... hmm.... it. could. work!

Reminds me of the time I had this orange, blue, yellow and white sweater that I HATED, but when my mom put it on me I wore it. Later, my brother wore it and she told me it had come from the boys' department.

It didn't have any effect on my sexuality, though. A lesbian friend has described me as "the straightest woman ever." But it's 'cause I'm boy-crazy, not because I'm a 'phobe or anything.

Katie Schwartz said...

ha. fab.

dguzman said...

Red--thanks for coming by! So you're the straightest person ever, and I'm the 'mo-est.

Katie--hee hee.

Red said...

D - or, you could be the 'mo with the 'most, or just the 'most, or, the 'mo with the 'mostest.

Words. I love 'em.
