These 18 creepy vintage photos will perhaps make you into an insomniac. There’s something about an old, grainy black-and-white photograph that can make almost any subject terrifying. Little kids, sad old people, and people in creepy costumes await.
When you look back at vintage photographs, the first thing you notice is how much creepier they are than today’s snapshots. Be it a store bought costume or something lovingly made by mom, these figures in these photographs go from frightening to just plain freaky. And in all their oddness, there is something beautiful and eerie, something that really represents the Halloween spirit.
Old Halloween costumes were way more badass than the slutty nurses and giant foam outfits of today. Put on a haggard, hand-made mask, some floppy clothes with weird stains, and go out giving old people heart attacks. Those were the good old days. [via x-weird]
