25 Days of Vintage Halloween Art! – Roaring 20s Halloween Party Costume Art

Free Vintage Halloween Images, Clip Art, and Pumpkin Carving Patterns

Well, I hope you are happy to see that I’ve started a new series here, which will finally break my streak of hardly posting at all around here. 😉 Twice I’ve mentioned now my backup hard drive that died. Losing my hundreds of vintage scans was bad enough, but for some STUPID reason, I’d also put something else on that drive – a whole collection of pumpkin carving patterns that I hand-drew myself based on vintage Halloween artwork. I’ve got a ‘thing’ for drawing pumpkin stencils – it is really one of my favorite things to do every year and I post them all on my kids sites. But to spend 2-3 days drawing up new patterns for this site and then to lose them… I was SO pissed. And in such a funk… you have no idea.

This week, though, I’ve been unusually productive. And I finally got motivated to re-draw the stencils I’d lost. And then I re-scanned my vintage Halloween images… and then I finally was able to get up off my tush and put together a new series of 25 images for Halloween – yay me! So, besides the vintage postcards, magazine illustrations, and clip art, this series will include 6 original vintage pumpkin patterns for you to carve!

This first image comes from a 1920’s Dennison magazine full of crepe paper costume ideas. Unfortunately, what they thought was a ‘tutorial’ back then was simply a single paragraph of instructions of how to construct an elaborate dress, mask and/or head piece. Evidently crafty moms of the time didn’t need a lot of guidance, I guess?? So even though I can’t share any useful costume tutorials, I can at least share this image from the magazine cover – isn’t it gorgeous??
