Vintage Mid-Century Halloween Costumes


I love Halloween. Of all the things I have collected over the years, other than “vintage” as a whole, I have more Halloween decorations than anything else. Modern, not vintage as alas they are too pricey for me.

Because unfortunately, collecting vintage Halloween things seems to be very popular with a lot of other people too. Little plastic candy holders and paper pumpkins are still selling for $300-$400. More than I care to invest in.

However, one thing I noticed that still sells at an affordable rate, are vintage Halloween costumes:


Yikes! Who knew this costume would become so scary?


Most were boxed after about the 1930’s, but you can find all kinds on eBay:

The best time to buy these is after Halloween, but you can still pick up some deals.

Here’s hoping you find that perfect vintage costume!
