Or the costume is [Lizzie Borden](https://assets1.cbsnewsstatic.com/hub/i/r/2020/03/26/1ced0ba2-21c1-4bbd-881e-63305c0b6498/thumbnail/1200x630/94d7a54d7ad4b0db62276de64db2328c/borden-lizzie.jpg) and they’re making a finger gun to pantomime an otherwise slightly vague costume.

nekomoo

Impressive - DIY paper mache?


thehypervigilant

Ikr. These are crazy good.


psuedoscientist500

Plot twist: those aren't costumes.


RealDreamnomad

Why the hell are the costumes from almost 100 years ago better than the costumes today??


superboringfellow

Because it's probably a stage play.


gata1323

This has squid game vibes to it lol


Cunder__Thunt

This reminding anyone else of Spirited Away, somehow?


Fit_Background_2402

Now it is 😂 Great movie ❤️


amberraysofdawn

At the rate I’m going with making my kid’s Halloween costume, it’s probably going to end up looking like one of these


Shel_gold17

That just makes it a classic.


Formal_Adblock

First comic con photo


Single_Comfort3555

Fucking rad!


TFBidia

Source material for the Purge


Hopfit46

The lost art of paper mache...


llobotommy

Looks like the characters from the Running of the Jew festival in Kazakhstan (fictional of course, in Borat)


Cavscout2838

There is some incredible craftsmanship in those


Bacnnator

It helps knowing the original reason for costumes was to scares the actual ones away (or something along those lines) if I’m wrong which is highly likely can someone please comment the actual reason?


Acceptable_Average14

They are the most horrific costumes I've ever seen! Beats the uninventive costumes you see today.. witch, zombie, half naked murdered cheerleader...


yonghybonghybo1

As a kid, we made paper mache heads for Halloween. We were too poor to buy costumes, but that wasn’t such a big thing then as most people made their costumes. I still have great memories of all the fun we had. And yes, some of the creations were scary!


KingKrusador

Mickey has really gone downhill


Breakalawson

Brad - Shame


kittenlover2011

Thank you and why aren’t more people aware. I was like “this looks a lot like that cover”…it’s the exact same picture!!

I see that mob coming down the alley towards me: Nope! Nope! Nope! Fuck that!


Automatic_Flight_659

Pretty horrifying, but then the Thirties were pretty horrifying for most people.

Getting real Halloween III vibes

Kim Wexler’s great grandma in the center there giving zero fucks.


Rborroto77

[deleted]

Give me 1 of those costumes from back then and I'll win every scary costume contest there is today.


MacCaswell

Legit thought the one just right of the kid in the middle had a gun…


peacoat10

You put on your asbestos head and walked the block till you got a pack of Chesterfield cigarettes or a nickle.


TheFrontierzman

That can't be just Halloween costumes. That's some high level laborous mask making. More like a theater group.


tofutti_kleineinein

Bloody love these photos of the wonky, weird ass, costumes kids wore back in the day! Walleyed mustachio on the far right side is my fave here.


cryptocurinfo

The mustachioed one on the right looks like he jst pooped a little.


HumanArthouse

That one middle front is the creepiest.


TreasurePlanetagogo

Real Twilight Zone vibes. Neat!


redneckluver

Looks like Diane Arbus


rockymountainjam

Looks like a horror movie. Peter Pan is the only character recognizable. Oh there is also Micky Mouse next to him.


solipsisticghost

Yeah, like some iteration of Mickey Mouse that someone would draw on the walls of their padded cell.


500SL

That ain’t Mickey Mouse. That’s Ricky Rat.


Wiger_King

This is what started *World War 2*
