10 Weird Yet Awesome Vintage Halloween Costumes

If you haven't decided yet on a crazy costume to wear for that upcoming Halloween party, we have some interesting stuff you might draw inspiration from. Find out what some quirky people from many decades past decided to wear for Halloween after the jump!

A few days more and it’s going to be Halloween—the time of the year where every one is free to dress up as crazy, shocking, or strange as they want. Many now comment on how the usual Halloween get-up has gone from scary to sexy, so it’s about time everybody starts turning the trend back the other way, don’t you think?

If you have plans to go to a Halloween party but have not yet decided on the shocking look you should go for, why not try something bizarre? Flavorwire has recently curated some creatively freaky Halloween looks by revelers from yester-decades that certainly put costumes these days to shame. Click through this gallery of the 10 best from the collection and be inspired (or floored, even):

I’m torn between the Chicken Man and the Egg Lady as my favorite (almost begging for the perennial question, “Which came first?”), but maybe you have a favorite among all these delightfully weird Halloween looks, yes? Tell us about it with a comment below!

    Yup, chicken man rules! Egg lady is fun, too, but she won't be able to enjoy a drink without arms...

    The mushrooms with the elf-man-person just reminds me of the movie Jack Frost (the russo-finnish one). You know. The MST3k episode. XD
