As the sun sets for the final time in October, it’s finally time to take those costumes out of storage, throw on some gory makeup, and hit the streets for Halloween. Sure, you probably aged out of trick or treating (for yourself) years ago, but you can still get in on the dress-up fun.
Even if you’re not celebrating this year, you can join us on a nostalgic journey into Halloweens from the past thanks to Photomyne users and their scanned photos. Take a look at some of our favorites, the ones that really bring us back to our prime trick-or-treating days.

I was 9 years old and my hero was Zorro. My mother invited my close friends and family for a birthday party at home. She made my costume. It was a time of happiness with no worries, except school - Marseille, France, 1965 - Photo credit: Frederic Landes
