Just in time for Halloween, here’s a great costume sewing book from 1988. The costumes in this book range from ridiculous to downright inappropriate. Behold the images below:

1. There’s tiny Elvis. Or is it Wayne Newton? The pattern is called “Pop Star” but it doesn’t resemble any pop stars kids today will recognize…or want to be for Halloween.

2. Meet “Saloon Sal.” Feather boa and all.

3. Here in Michigan, the “Polynesian Girl” costume would be mighty cold to wear trick-or-treating at the end of October. Not to mention, that one could make some parents uncomfortable. It might not be the best choice for the classroom party at school.

    1. I know! The little “pop star” looks like he just woke up from a nap and has no idea where he is.
