Trick or Creep. The way it should be!

Halloween started going down hill when they started to make princess, angel, and fairy costumes.

Some of those costumes could be featured in some of today's whacked-out horrorfest movies. Totally creepy. When Halloween was actually Halloween and not just a make-believe dress up candy collecting party.

 

From the movie The Strangers. See any similarities?

Did you go with someone dressed as Michael Jackson with his hair on fire, kind of a Pepsi/Coke thing?

These days you would be considered a insensitive racist. 

 

As others have stated, some of those old time costumes are downright creepy.....I like 'em.

Nope, by myself. I found an orange Afro wig and added some paper flames to it, blackface, bell bottoms, denim jacket and platform shoes and wide collared shirt and I was him.

 

Probably wouldn’t go over to well today.

Barney, if you ever do that costume again, remember the gladius goes on the right side. Strong side, not cross draw.

My favorite old costume was Scout's "ham" costume:

Yes, I'm from Alabama, and I love "To Kill A Mockingbird".

The one pic must be from the early to mid '50's. There's a '52-'54 Ford behind those trick or treater's. Dad had a '52 when I was a young'un..........:blush:
