15 Horrifying Vintage Halloween Costumes

15 Horrifying Vintage Halloween Costumes

Today's kids frolic around neighborhoods every Halloween dressed as their favorite superheroes and Disney princesses, pumpkins and monkeys, or kitties and ghosts.

Kids of the past, however, had a much more horrifying Halloween experience and surely that is where the idea that Halloween is a time to be terrified came from. It may be forgotten today in a sea of candy and playful banter but just a glimpse at these 15 Vintage Halloween costumes will remind you what horror really is. 

You may also find yourself thinking, as you stare horrified at these children's costumes, that if one ever showed up on your dark doorstep that you would be more likely to put them off the deck than to plop a tootsie roll in their bag.
