Cute Halloween Costumes

Tina over at What I Found has been posting some seriously awesome illustrations of costumes from a Pictorial Review catalog ca. 1925-1927. If you love the 20s like I do these are a must see!

Super cute pirate costume. A little risqué even.

I would totally wear that giant bow on my head. Just saying. 

Tree fairy maybe? Actually this is Pan according to the description. You know, Peter Pan (as if you couldn't tell the second you looked at this image.)

I would totally wear this right now. RIGHT NOW. Ruffles people! Ruffles..... The caption on the pattern illustration says "Colonial Girl," but I'm not sure how colonial this is. Looks more like what we would think of as "Little Bo Peep" today. 

Do check out Tina's Blog. She post all sorts of scans from her collection of vintage literature. They're always fun and interesting.
