It Was a Lot Easier in the Good Old Days
When October came around back in the fifties, we had the choice of being a bum, a witch, a ghost or a gypsy. Those were costumes my mom could easily assemble from what we had on hand. You'll see in this vintage photo that I opted for gypsy and so did my best friend.
Actually these were fun to put together and we were thrilled to get to wear some of our moms' clothes, jewelry and make-up.
If you want to make your own costume, I've included some ideas and links for that.
