These Creepy Vintage Halloween Costumes Will Give You Nightmares

Creepy vintage Halloween costumes c. 1910

Long ago, before the glossy scourge of prepackaged superheros and princess costumes, Halloween brought ghouls and goblins into the night, terrorizing the neighborhood with their fiendish cackling and unholy demands for candy.

In volume one of the Cult of Weird vintage Halloween costume roundup we explore the bizarre intersection of Halloween and technology where cameras collided with a unique era of DIY costume making. This momentous occasion has given us a seemingly endless pool of strange, creepy and sometimes hilarious vintage Halloween costume photos to puzzle over on the internet.

Peugeot Motor-Boat Car

Peugeot motor-boat car 1926

This hybrid boat car made by the French Peugeot company looks like a swanky way to spend a day on the lake. However, the car was not actually amphibious. It was a boat hull mounted on a car chassis with a propeller, but no drive shaft.

It was designed to advertise the company’s nautical branch, Peugeot Nautica.
