“There’s an earthy feel to this, like I see in a lot of other vintage photos.  Like grime and earthiness were a part of Halloweens of the past (grime might be too strong a word..and too gross a word).  Maybe it’s just the high contrast in the old photographs, or because people had their costumes/masks stored away in old dirt-floor basements or dusty hot attics.  Or because people would wear hand-me-downs…costumes worn by older sisters and brothers, and uncles and parents before that.  Not sure, but I dig it.
And I think people who have that Old School look in their Yard Haunts are totally in on this secret.And I dig that even more.”
