As we celebrate this spookiest of holidays, we’ve asked some of our Diamond Certified Expert Contributors to join in the fun by sharing their favorite Halloween costumes from their childhood.


Eric Isenberg of E.G.I Custom Painting: “A ‘Star Wars’ character. Almost every year during my childhood, I was Darth Vader, C-3PO or some other character from those movies.”




Glen Mitchell, broker at Keller Williams Realty: “A jack-in-the-box. It was basically a big cardboard box—I would sit inside on the porch, and when trick-or-treaters came to the door, I’d jump out and scare them.”




Patty Frazzetta of Storage Master Self Storage: “A pirate girl.”






Ryan Diaz of Bay Valley Contractors, Inc.: “A Power Ranger. That was a big show when I was growing up.”





Tom Rhoads of Roof-Life Construction: “G.I. Joe.”






Charles Irwin of Irwin Construction: “The Greatest American Hero.”





Nancy Stanton of Abbey Carpet & Floor: “Tweety Bird.”





David Osborn of Osborn Spray Service: “When I was in fifth grade, my mother dressed me up in a bunch of tin cans and said I was a ‘cannibal.’”





Shawn Park of T & J Painting: “Wolverine.”






Debbie Allen of Marin Convalescent & Rehabilitation Hospital: “It seems kind of weird now that I think about it, but a clown. I was a clown three different years growing up.”
