8 Vintage Halloween Costumes

Vintage Halloween costumes for Mom from Etsy on Babble.com

It has been eons, literally, since I dressed up for Halloween. That said, I’m practically begging for an excuse to get dressed up this year. Gone are my princess and witch costume days, though. Right now I am loving quirky and cool vintage Halloween costumes, of which you can find scads on Etsy. From creepy old monster masks (um, which I frankly find positively frightening) to old bedazzled dresses, you really can’t go wrong. Want to dress up and channel a little Halloween spirit? (You know you do.) Here are 8 vintage Halloween costumes!
