Brace yourself. Halloween pictures will rule your social media timeline the coming week. And in this case you can blame me. However, you may just blame me for some good old vintage entertainment or for that cool, original Halloween look.

And I mean look way back in history. Get inspired by these vintage Halloween pictures. Oh and pay attention.
