Mark B. Ledenbach shares his Halloween collection, amassed and curated since 1988. His audience is primarily serious collectors of vintage Halloween memorabilia, but people simply wanting to know more about the hobby will enjoy this site too. His FAQ on buying vintage Halloween items is really interesting, and the blog provides fascinating pics and articles.
Take Back Halloween
A costume resource guide for "Women with imagination." Removing the "sexy" aspect of women's Halloween costumes, and creating costumes instead that are witty, clever, empowering or really cool. The inspirational costume ideas here help you figure out how to put together a costume with things you already have - without even having to sew! This site encourages you to dress as your favorite heroine, pay tribute to your heritage, be a queen for the day, channel the Goddess, or channel Hollywood red carpet glamour.
Costume categories here include Notable Women, Glamour Grrls, Goddesses and Legends, and Queens.
