Little Vikings/Valkyries

This photo series from my collection are more theater than Halloween, but these ladies represent the spirit of what I love best about this holiday: the costumes (that, and ghosts, witches. draculas, zombies, haunted houses, pumpkins…). I had read once that in the Victorian period through the early 1900s, people would dress in costume for parlor games, or put on small plays as forms of entertainment when hanging out with friends and family. I’m really digging Queen Neptune’s costume, a find I’d pretty much go bonkers over if spotted while thrifting.

I know! I wonder what kind of job it was to paint all of these. I’d love to have them for our studio.
