Watch 100 Years of Halloween Costumes Captured in 3 Minutes


The Celts conceived Halloween thousands of years ago, and it's fair to say that a number of things have changed since then—especially the costumes. With Halloween right around the corner once again, revelers big and small are putting the finishing touches on their looks so they're prepared when October 31 arrives. 

Still looking to get inspired? The timelapse video above shows a model being helped into various costumes, one after another. It's a fun and fast way to look back at the disguises women have worn over the past century, and shows just how much current events influence what people wear to celebrate. Sure, the classics pop up throughout (the witch, it seems, was always a Halloween staple), but so do contemporary pop culture figures, including Minnie Mouse, Catwoman, and Kim Kardashian.
