A Collection of 20 Incredibly Bizarre Vintage Halloween Costumes

It’s been a long time since Halloween costumes were genuinely scary, given today’s predilection for slutty maids and Snooki outfits. But a hundred years ago, frightening neighbors with homemade goblins was the only thing they had to look forward to. In fact, pretty much every costume they conjured up was unique, specially crafted to scare the living daylights out of people.

Here now, are 20 of the most bizarre vintage Halloween costumes from the past. Enjoy!


  1. The "Pa and Ma Bell" image, Carly Rae Jepsen's parents I presume?

  2. The above photo of a young lady in a biplane costume is not, in fact, vintage. It is a picture that I photoshopped of my wife. Should you want to access the original, it can be found here: It is a costume test from the film "Just Imagine"(1930). My wife would greatly appreciate it if you could replace her photo with the original.

    Thank you!
