I Am The Devil

Or at least, I was the Devil, back around 1983 at the age of 10.


Yes, that’s your truly again, this time ready to trick-or-treat my neighborhood disguised as Mr. Mephistopheles himself.

I don’t remember much about this costume other than I’m pretty sure the mask and rubber hands came from a garage sale. Over those red tights it would appear I’m wearing my red soccer shorts. And while many people mistakenly believe that the Devil wears Prada, in reality, he wears a red long-sleeved Izod under a homemade cape.

He also rocks a pretty sweet BMX bike, if I do say so myself.

    Lookin’ back I wish I had spent more time with you and both my boys. Had you and Linda down more often but life was busy for us all and we didn’t know what we were missin’ You guys are doing a good job with Mason and Morgan. I hope life slows a little bit for ya soon. I gotta think up somethin’ special for Mason and Morgan to do when they come down. I think they would both enjoy diggin’ a big Ol’ HOLE in the Ground with the front end Loader. Later I found out Morgan had been slighted by not gettin’ to run the tractor. That Won’t happen AGAIN !! Hugs Uncle Ken and Aunt Barb

  2. Flack, I’m thinking you should just send in this awesome photo to Marvel Comics…I’m sensing a Ghost Rider and Mr. Mephistopheles team-up! :)
