19 Images of Home Made Halloween Costumes

Need a costume for Halloween but don't think you can knock one out of the park DIY style? Ossain Brown created a collection of terrifying vintage photographs of costumes of the past. These costumes are mostly homemade and have a back woods horror more spine tingling than the Deliverance banjo. Honestly, what are nightmares made of if not a child in a burlap sack mask...Warning: images not for the feint of heart.

Rather distubing :O
But seriously if you want to see some jaw dropping costumes, go to a comic book/anime/sci-fi convention. Most of the attendees wear meticulously crafted costumes that would blow your mind.

Those scary rag costumes has more "halloween spirit" than Spider Man and anime costumes.

They're freaky as hell right! lol

Or just walk into your local Wal*Mart and look at how people dress everyday.

never understood this american holiday..its like devil worshiping

It's actually not. If you knew anything about Halloween before opening your mouth, you would know it is a day to remember the Saints, Martyrs, and other departed people of the church. This also is not an American holiday. We celebrate it here, but it was originally formed in Ireland or Scotland. Nobody knows which of the two countries celebrated it first.

I've said I dont know. Dressing up like creatures from hell to celebrate saints? well OK...btw, no need to be offensive while making Ur point, U Typical American Idiot

Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. Rev. Dr. Eddie J. Smith, in his book Halloween, Hallowed Be Thy Name, offers a religious perspective to the wearing of costumes on All Hallows' Eve, stating that "By dressing up in costumes and portraying frightening creatures, who at one time caused us to fear and tremble, we. . . are poking fun at the serpent whose head has been crushed by our Savior." So there is nothing common between these costumes and worshiping devil :)

Typical American Idiot huh

I not sure what you are, But you need to lighten the hell up, Clearly you are no fun to be around and we do not wish you to be part of our AWESOME Halloween Parties and Celebrations

Take your own advice "no need to be offensive while making your point".

I've dreamt of the children in the last photo for my whole life. Now I have a clue to find out what it means.
