Vintage Halloween Costumes

My best friend Tete and I decided last year to exchange Halloween Bags(and it's been so much fun we may be doing it for other holidays too!) and this is what I got-3 sets of Vintage Halloween costumes. They are for an adult and I think they are quite old-Halloween used to be celebrated only by adults years ago. I always like to set the scene so I decided to display each one on an old manequin and put some fun props around them! This one is a clown costume and it's the most fragile, but in great condition. This one is the ring leader(it needs to be ironed-but I didn't have time) and has some wonderful details to it.

This one is a gypsy costume and has some very intricate embellishments. I love them all and couldn't pick any one as a favorite-as always my best friend knows how to make me get excited and happy! Thanks Tete!
