I had the best time searching for vintage Halloween costumes for this article because it brought me back to the Halloween costumes of my childhood. I guess that means that I am vintage also, but even the vintage Halloween costumes in a box were fun to look at because I recognized the boxes.
There are some really great vintage Halloween costume finds for children especially, but for adults as well, and lots of great vintage sewing patterns for Halloween costumes. I will have to ask my mom if she still has our old Halloween costumes at home because if so, I will be using them to decorate my store this year.
Halloween was a simpler holiday when I was a child, but there were already worries about children’s safety. However, back then we trick or treated without adults in relative safety in our own neighborhood, or at least we thought we were safe.
