20 Incredibly Bizarre Vintage Halloween Costumes

Happy Halloween, right?

I stumbled across this just now, and it is fascinating. Just a little ‘thought of the day’ to see how much has changed through time, from the big things to the little.
Here are some vintage Halloween costumes. Enjoy!

Flavorwire

What is it about vintage costumes that makes them so much more bizarre — and so much scarier — than their modern equivalents? Were people really that much stranger back then, or do they only look absurd in hindsight? Fed up with the animal-ears-and-a-bra option that, no matter how many times everyone rolls their eyes over it, seems to be the prevailing trend year after year, we decided to look for a little inspiration in vintage photography. We scoured the web for the wildest, weirdest costumes of yesteryear, and came up with everything from toadstools to telephones — and one guy in “fancy dress as a side of bacon.” After the jump, get inspired — or totally freaked out — by our collection of creepy, funny, or just plain bizarre costumes worn by revelers in decades past. We hope you can sleep tonight.
