It's October, which means it's Halloweenapalooza time! To kick off the month, I thought it would be fun to put together three classic Halloween costumes, but in a modern way, yet using your historical footwear (and nobody'll know!)
"Modern" takes on Halloween costumes is actually quite historical, like the illustration from "Dennison's Bogie Book — A 1922 Guide for Vintage Decorating and Entertaining at Halloween and Thanksgiving" above, or everyone's favorite Victorian Batgirl costume:
So why not follow in the footsteps, dig around in the ole closet, and see what you can put together. Here are some ideas...
