A Halloween Princess in Indiana (1981)

My elementary school did Halloween up really big and everyone dressed up for the day and nothing was learned. Sadly no pictures were taken, so all I have are the great memories. To help myself remember though, I like to browse old photos of Halloween’s past and see what costumes people were wearing back then. This photo is from 1981 and features a Princess, which was a pretty popular choice in my school if memory serves me right (and this was before the Disney Princesses craze).

If you look in the foreground there is an amazing store-bought Frankenstein Monster and behind him some sort of demon in a shawl or something that kind of creeps me out.
