Have any old ones of your own to share?

http://weirdtalesmagazine.com/2013/10/26/halloween-was-so-much-weirder-back-then-creepy-and-disturbing-vintage-halloween-photos/

A lot of people this week are probably still trying to decide on what they want to wear for next week for Halloween. Lord knows that we are suffering from a plague of plenty these days. All you have to do is go look on-line or visit your local seasonal Halloween Store.

 

     Years and years ago people didn’t have this problem. They had to come up with their own costumes. From the look of the old pictures below it seems that all they needed was some old clothes, an adequate supply of Paper Mache´ and a little bit of imagination. Even if the results weren’t very refined, they do have a strong air of primitive weirdness that is enhanced even more by the black and white photography.

 

So to quote the man in the black suit and smoking a cigarette…

 

Presented for your approval……..

This is the only picture of me in a costume I have I think, as a child that is lol.  This was a dress, hat and gloves my grandmother wore in her best friends wedding in 1946, the vest was added to make it funky lol.

The funny part of this picture is that was not my house but the house up the street.  Our house was too ugly for the pic lol.

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver
