Before all the plastic super-hero and frosty, sparkling princess costumes, before the glitter make-up and unicorn onesies, there was a dark side to Halloween. Costumes actually used to be… scary!
As in, horror movie scary.
You see, Halloween costumes originated as a way to ward off evil demons. Somewhere over the past century, they’ve morphed into silly fun and games. But back in the day, they were serious business.
Homemade mummified children? This is almost too much even for House Crazy Sarah!
Just look at the old houses in the background House Crazy Sarah!
JUST LOOK AT THE HOUSES!
And the wallpaper… the antique wallpaper!
Animals! Animals are always cute – aren’t they?
They’re just children, after all. Innocent, cherub-faced children…
And the adults… the adults are just having a fun old time whooping it up at early Halloween festivities…
It’s all fun and games!
House Crazy Sarah can’t take it anymore!
Unicorns and rainbows…unicorns and rainbows…
Ahhhhhhh……… back to present time. 🙂
