Horrifying Vintage Halloween Costumes

451

Creepy Halloween costumes that were worn decades ago can still match the horrifying level of today’s ghoulish get-ups. Back then, kids and costume wearers had to make do with whatever materials were available. If they had pieces of cloth, newspapers, rubber, and some paint, that would be enough to create their interpretation of a spooky Halloween costume.

These vintage photos show that the result of their creativity can still give us nightmares. Out-of-scale sizes and unmatched parts can be horrifying as hell. Some of these photos were from the collection of Ossian Brown’s Haunted Air book. You can even get some inspiration from these disturbing DIY costumes. Which one do you think is the creepiest of them all?
