Trendy Takes on 3 Classic Halloween Costumes

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:
