Ten Creepy Vintage Halloween Costumes

Ah, Halloween. A day of mischief and mayhem, candy and carnage, fun and fright. A day where the streets are littered with children dressed up as their favorite monsters and madmen, hoping to take the title of “scariest kid on the block”—the one who returns home at the end of the night with the biggest collection of candy.

Or at least, that’s how it used to be.

Let’s face it: Halloween has become unappreciated in today’s politically correct society. To be perfectly blunt… it sucks. Nowadays, each costume is “cuter” than the next; princesses, superheroes, fairies, popstars and Disney characters. Sure, there’s the occasional cool kid who will come knocking on your door clad in Michael Myers’ trademark white mask and baggy coveralls, but they’ve become the exception to the rule. Gone are the days of Freddy, Jason, Michael, Chucky and Ghostface worshippers populating the city streets on October 31st, each one younger than the next, each child just a little more frighteningly dedicated to the role than the last.

But the good old days of the 80s and 90s that most of us cling to so lovingly laid the foundation for the increasing commercialization and overall dumbing down of Halloween that seems to get worse every year. What about the years… gaspbefore the 80s and 90s? Believe it or not, there was a time when Halloween costumes with officially licensed characters from TV shows and films were virtually nonexistent. Instead, store shelves were overrun with generic masks bearing the visages of witches, vampires, pumpkins and skulls. And if you were able to score one of those masks, you were the lucky kid on the block. The not-so-lucky kids were slaves to whatever their parents could throw together from common household items, and everything from old couch cushions to worn-out tablecloths were fair game, masks usually made out of such rudimentary material as bags or pillow cases.

But the overall moral of this story? Halloween costumes were way more creepy back in the day. In fact, many were downright disturbing.

So enjoy these ten images showcasing some of the most frightening vintage Halloween costumes and check your closets for some old pillow cases and tablecloths you may not be using… you might just have all the materials required to put together the scariest Halloween costume on the block.

The modern State cannot be grasped as a reality, substance, objectivity (an inert or organic object). The State is not seen. No more than the Law. They do not pertain to the sensible. You can photograph rulers. Not the State. What does the spectator see, from the outside, or the member, from the inside? He does not see the Law, only the policeman. We only see the theatrical appearance of the State, the ceremonial garments. The State is not seen, it is conceived: this allows Hegel and Hegelians to claim that the State is (nothing but) an idea.

BREAKING: Michael Dunn found guilty of first-degree murder in shooting death of Florida teen Jordan Davis

Michael Dunn, the man who shot and killed Florida teenager Jordan Davis in November 2012, has been found guilty of first-degree murder.


Dunn was previously found guilty of three counts of attempted murder in a February trial for shooting at an SUV carrying Davis and three of his friends.
During that trial, the jurors deadlocked on the decision to convict Dunn of first-degree murder.
Tuesday saw Dunn testify in his own defense. The jury began deliberations early Wednesday morning.


From The Florida Times Union:

Dunn, 47, testified that Davis was angrily getting out of a Dodge Durango while holding a shotgun and threatening to kill him when he pulled out his own handgun and opened fire on Davis and others in the vehicle.

“You’re not going to kill me, you [filtered word],” Dunn said he yelled at Davis seconds before firing ten bullets at the Dodge Durango Davis was in.
Dunn said he was scared for his life and would have been killed if he hadn’t pulled out his own gun.
“I shot to defend my own life,” Dunn said at one point while testifying on Tuesday.

During closing statements, Assistant State Attorney John Guy reiterated that no weapons were found on Davis or inside the SUV he and his friends were riding in.






GLORRRRRRRRRRRRRY

Praise Jesus!
