Here's one last Hallowe'en post, that will take us up to All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day in the bargain. Boing Boing posted historic photos of American Hallowe'en costumes from 1875 to 1955, taken from the book Haunted Air, which is based on private collection owned by Ossian Brown. The book has an introduction by David Lynch. The costumes sure are spooky. This is what Hallowe'en looked like before Walmart and online costume outlets.
