This photo, posted by the aptly named evil-eye, was taken in a pharmacy “seasonal” department in the mid-1970s. Seeing Halloween masks and pumpkin buckets on a pharmacy rack takes me back to my youth when any store bought costume meant drug store bought. I am pretty sure I have seen all of these masks worn at one point or another and miss those bright colors and generic theming. Now everyone kid seems to go out on Halloween as someone or something very specific as apposed to some archetype.
