3172 – Halloween costume photo: Original colour photo of Halloween

Physical description:
Normal sized original colour photo showing three people in Halloween costumes.
Museum classification:
Halloween exhibition
Size:
15cm x 10cm
Information:

Three people (possibly three children in a family?) posing in front of a net curtain. They are dressed for Halloween. One child wears a Tigger tiger costume and another wears a Snow White costume. The third costume is Ghost Face from Scream (holding a scythe). This photo clearly shows the influence of the mass media on Halloween costumes and the divide between Halloween for kids (sweet and fun) and for young adults (scary and cool).
