Run Away with the Vintage Circus

A feast for the eyes. Some of my favorite vintage circus and theatrical photos and posters, circa 1880-1950. 

With Halloween just around the corner, skip the costume in a plastic bag and go for vintage threads.  Channel miss tightrope and trapeze, Lion tamer, sideshow wonders, and circus dancers styles. Seek-out vintage fabric and test those sewing skills! Find the perfect excuse to grow a handlebar, hipsters gents. Halloween costume inspirations are abound.
