There was a time when you couldn’t just buy a random costume at your neighborhood big-box retail store. And when Halloween wasn’t just an excuse to dress “sexy”. Around the early 1900’s people had to painstakingly craft their own DIY (Do It Yourself) Halloween costumes, and boy are we glad we weren’t alive back then because these creepy handmade Halloween costumes are absolutely horrifying.
