With summer approaching, I have Halloween on the brain in a major way. I know what you’re thinking—um, Christine, when aren’t you thinking about Halloween? I know, it’s seldom. The reason why I’m thinking about it even more, though, is because summer is the season in which I design and produce my Flapper Girl Halloween line each year, and summer is approaching fast. I think about my Halloween line all year long while collecting elements along the way, and as always, I’m getting excited to start playing with materials and designing some awesome pieces for the 2011 collection!
To help spread the excitement, here is another round of awesome vintage Halloween photos I’ve spotted on eBay the past few months. Enjoy!
The witch on the right is so lovely. I adore that collar on her costume and the scalloped edge on the bottom of her dress!
Cute kiddos. I particularly fancy the animal costume on the far right.
Yes! An awesome teen Halloween party! I love those decorations, and I want that pigtailed lass’ black cardigan.
Three sassy old ladies hamming it up on Halloween. I love this photo because it looks like they are having a lot of fun eating snacks, smoking cigarettes and drinking highballs.
Each costume is creepier than the next!
I don’t know what this photo was from, but isn’t it amazing? This auction ended during the week my computer died, so I was unable to bid on it. It sold for only $10.50 which kills me a little bit inside.
*sigh* This photo is so fucking amazing, it almost blows my mind up. It’s dated October 29, 1914! Beautiful. Stunning. Large Format. It sold for around $175.00. I envy whomever has this in their collection.
Creepy costumes + a seriously kick-ass jack-o-lantern. What’s not to love?
