Fashionably Geek reader Amelia found her mom’s old Wonder Woman costume from the 1970s, she knew what must be done. She put on the costume, of course! And she looks fantastic, too.
What a score! That is one fine costume, and she looks awesome.
Check out this old school handmade E.T. costume, made by a loving mother for her child. I’m guessing this was taken in the 80’s but I’m not positive.
While this costume may be nothing to phone home about, it certainly has heart! I love seeing old handmade costumes like this. What a lucky kid.
Here’s a fun look at some old, geeky Halloween costumes from Harry’s new column
Raising Geeks, over at Ain’t It Cool News. A few AICN readers have sent in costumes photos of when they were kids. Ah, good times.
I especially like this photo of the kid with a broken arm. He woke up from surgery with a Captain America cast! Now that’s a good dad, what a smart idea.
And the Mr. T costume below is killing me, so funny. Visit
AICN to view the full column. Great stuff, thanks Harry!
Look at this group of waterskiing superheroes! LOL, this pic is amazing.
This is a promotional Sea World photo from the late 1970’s. Wow, they had a superhero water show? I would love to have seen that!
The Lennon Sisters, a famous singing group and regular act on the Lawrence Welk show, put on skeleton costumes and sing
Dry Bones. According to BoingBoing, this was recorded on October 30, 1965.
I think we’ve all heard this tune before. It’s interesting to see this old footage, very cool.
Bonus Munster version!
AcidCow put together a photo gallery of vintange Halloween costumes. Yes, definitely scary! Head over to their website to view them all.
There’s something about old photos, with their special bad quality and poor lighting, that raises the creepy factor several notches.
Check out the goldfish swimming in this guy’s helmet!
This footage is from the recent San Francisco
Edwardian Ball, which is a big ol’ steampunky goth party. Doesn’t that sound fun?
Watching this guy walk with goldfish swimming around his head is so surreal. I wonder how he made this?
Ah, the good ol’ days, when mail order catalogs and ads in comic books sold the GOOD STUFF.
Just imagine how scared your friends and family will be when they see you walking towards them as a life-size, terrifying Monster Robot.
It acts just like a creature from outer space!
