Thanks to last week's deliciously creepy "Pretty Little Liars" Halloween special, we were treated to plenty of eye candy in the form of our favorite Rosewood residents done up in crazy costumes. (We'll belt, "...Baby One More Time" any day to hefty Hanna as Britney Spears!) But, when we stopped by the set of the ABC Family hit earlier this summer, we wanted to know what the actors and actresses behind the characters wore for their very first Halloween costume.
In a fun coincidence, both Shay Mitchell and Tyler Blackburn recalled dressing as clowns (albeit straddling very different positions on the cute-to-creepy spectrum), but the most swoonworthy story, unsurprisingly, went to Ian Harding.
"Both of my parents worked really hard when I was a kid, so I didn't really care about costumes," he explained. "I cared about walking around the neighborhood with my parents. I'm pretty sure they were like, uh, you're a ghost! And threw a sheet over me and cut little holes in it, probably while I was still in it."
While his specter memories are a bit hazy, Ian clearly recalled the year he dressed as a pizza-loving, crime-fighting reptile. "I know I was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle," he continued. "I think I was Donatello. Whichever one was the purple one. That's what we decided on. My dad was like, 'He's the most literate one, so you should be him.'"
We would definitely pay good money to see Mr. Fitz dressed as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! And just in case you were hoping a photo had somehow leaked on the internet, we already Googled it (to no avail). Nevertheless, Cowabunga, dude!
