Terrifying Vintage Halloween Photographs

Once upon a time, people couldn't just pop into Spirit or Party City to pick up a Halloween costume. No, they had to get creative with that business, and usually had to make their costumes themselves. I'm sure some of those costumes turned out splendidly, but alas, many of the results were completely nightmare-inducing and far more frightening than anything Romero or Raimi could have dreamed up. While today's kids may want to dress as fairy princesses and super heroes, the children of yesteryear seem to have been on a mission to scare the every loving shit out of anyone who answered the door bearing candy on Halloween night. Even adults appear to have preferred grotesque homemade masks over "sexy" versions of racist stereotypes and every profession under the sun. Imagine that.
