Vintage Halloween

These days Halloween is generally celebrated with costumes picked up at Target and Walmart – mass-produced odes to pop culture from Spider Man to Hannah Montana.

Now, mass-produced Halloween costumes are nothing new. Stores began to sell costumes for Halloween night way back in the 1930s, for kids and adults alike. But still a large amount of people (mostly parents) made homemade masterpieces.

And while today’s costumes are usually more cute than creepy, back in the day – think back about seventy years ago – Halloween costumes came off far more odd and eerie.

As Halloween 2011 is fast approaching, let’s journey back in time to the black and white and sepia toned era of Halloween of yore.
