Victorian Halloween costumes with a dash of WTF

I'm fascinated by early photography but not the "Look! A landscape!" photos or stiffly posed people, I like a little WTF to make it sassy. Since Halloween is about as messed up as you can get and not be arrested, I've combined the two with my favorite pics from the late 19th century - early 20th century.

And a charming selection of WTFery.

Update: I've added even more WTFery!
