I saw this tonight on FamilySearch – Vintage Halloween Costumes Your Grandparents Wore – FamilySearch October 24, 2019: https://www.familysearch.org/blog/en/vintage-halloween-costumes-1900s/.
If you’ve never asked your grandma or grandpa what they wore for Halloween, you’re missing out. Sometimes we think that all those old photos are stiff and unsmiling, but hidden among your ancestors’ memories, you might find some great ideas for vintage Halloween costumes.
Many people today put a lot of money and effort into their costumes, but our grandparents and great-grandparents often did costumes the old-fashioned way—by hand and with great care.
Some of the old costumes below are very authentic looking, while others are fun, cute, or silly. Whether you are looking for costume ideas or just a fun Halloween read, we hope you enjoy these costumes we found in FamilySearch Memories!
My grandparents are deceased so I don’t know what they did.
