Victorian Halloween costumes with a dash of WTF?

I'm fascinated by early photography but not the "Look! A landscape!" photos or stiffly posed people, I like a little WTF to make it sassy. Since Halloween is about as messed up as you can get and not be arrested, I've combined the two with my favorite pics from the late 19th century - early 20th century.

Man, I just love those vintage costumes--they all look like creepy serial killers, ala "The Strangers" movie.

I've convinced my family to dress up (7 of us) as the first photo. =D

Er, oil cans?
