It is the end of October and like every year, this is the time that all things creepy and horrifying come to light. Given that Halloween costumes have a lot of notoriety these days and costume parties are being held everywhere every year by the dozens, people have gotten the impression that it is a modern invention. Fun fact: it is not.
Costumes have existed from decades past and you will be surprised to know that they were far creepier and eerie than they are today. The following are some iconic yet nightmarish vintage Halloween costumes from the 1930s.
The next time you feel like dressing up as in a vintage costume, skip the formalities. It turns out the people in the past had a much darker and morbid sense of dressing than any of us can these days. Their imagination ran wild much like our economy these days.
