Halloween costumes are traditionally based on supernatural figures such as ghosts, ghouls, vampires, skeletons, witches and devils. Over the years as Halloween has become increasingly popular, the choice of costume has expanded to include popular fictional characters, celebrities and even archetypes such as ninjas. The first mass produced costumes began to appear in the 1930s as trick or treating became widespread.
Today Halloween is one of the most celebrated days in the calendar and the art of the Halloween costume has been taken to a whole new level with modern makeover techniques. The selection of spine-chilling makeups that follow illustrate this and are surely some of the best Halloween images on the net.
