Hello, Boos and Ghouls! Given life’s schedule, I meant to share this on in my Halloween edition of Throw Back Thursday! That didn’t happen. Anywho, in my TBT post I shared some childhood memories of vintage masks, treat bags, candy and more and today I thought why not look at some vintage slightly creepy and weird spooky photos but first….let’s set the mood.
Hit the play button before proceeding any further.
How can a group of kids look so creepy dressed like bats is behind me and yet I get creepied out looking at this photo. According to the this picture dates to the 1920s.
Some one remarked that these costumes were not on creepy but racists. I never understood the whole painting one’s face black, even in old movies or the theatre to portray a colored person ahem…Africian-American a white person applied what looked like black shoe polish to his/her face. Why didn’t they just hire black actors/actresses? Was it because of racial divide? Very bizarre!
Okay, menacing pumpkin heads on little kids sorta sends shivers up my spine.
I love the photo play of these two old images. Someone had imagination, didn’t they?
Handkerchiefs covered face isn’t something I would think of as scary but I find this a bit disturbing.
Maybe it’s the way my brain perceives these B&W images which plays Halloween tricks on the mind but they really do have an eerie sense about them, don’t you agree? Come on be honest and tell me that these creeped you out…just a little?
That’s all for now. Have a good weekend. Check back tomorrow to see who won in “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree” #BoTB showdown!
