Although Halloween can be traced back to ancient times, the celebration today is all about getting a sugar rush if you’re a kid or getting hammered if you’re an adult. And while creative, costumes are rarely truly scary, especially if they are DIY.
However, Halloween costumes looked way different 100 in the 19th and early 20th centuries. You don’t believe me? Well, there are photos that prove it! Thanks to artist Ossian Brown, we get to travel back in time and see what the costumes were like back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. And if you ask me, “creepy” doesn’t even begin to describe them!
