Happy Halloween &
Crazy Costumes

Nostalgia is finding value within the little moments and our larger memories. As a member of the Photomyne family, we know the past holds a special place in your heart, and we welcome you to our weekly newsletter of nostalgic photos.

Decipher the decade

Don't just dress the part, play it too

Although the "Flower Power" outfit may indicate this photo is from the 60s or 70s, don't forget we're still in the spirit of Halloween! In which later decade do you think it was taken?

A touch of Sharpy

Heads up!

"The poor soul wearing this costume was me on Halloween 1962. My mother had a habit of transforming me into dreadful creations and my younger sister into beautiful princesses each Halloween. At least I won the Best Costume Award in our city. I found this classic photo in our attic among keepsake pictures from my late parents and scanned it with Photomyne. I am endlessly grateful for your superb product!"

Sharpy is a feature allowing you to unblur grainy or lower-quality photos – try it yourself!

Family Flashback

Hate or great?

Can you tell which sibling loves Halloween and which one isn't a huge fan?

Way back when

Ghost town

The Godby family of Alberta, Canada, didn't let Halloween 1934 pass by without wearing the most historically-accurate costumes in town. Your effort didn't go unnoticed!

B&W colorization

Pumped for Halloween

Face paint is just as essential as the outfit to make the perfect costume.

The tricky trio

"I took this photo on Halloween of 1981. My stepson Matthew (far left) was a spook of some sort, my stepdaughter (middle) was a witch, and the other little girl (their friend) dressed up as a gypsy. They posed before we all went trick-or-treating."
