Party costumes without the insides

My first date was with the girl next door; we were both 12 and we went to a costume party. I went as Raggedy Andy and she went as a newspaper. I danced with her once, and not very well. It was also my last date with Betsy, though for a year or two I indulged in a lot of wishful thinking. I don't know where this concept of us both invisible but wearing the party costumes came from, unless it was just playing with the song titles, which were current or recent around that time. (Well, I see I misquoted the song she -- the newspaper outfit -- is singing.) The floating radio? Beats me. I'm not sure where the design for it came from either; I don't remember having one that looked like that.
