This wasn't your typical All Hallow's Eve.

Vintage photos of creepy Halloween costumes have recently surfaced and have taken the meaning of DIY to a new level.

The black-and-white pics, which date back as early as 1890, show children and adults (although it's hard to say how old the people are as most of them have covered up their heads) wearing spooky masks à la Michael Myers in "Halloween", pumpkin heads, white masks and loose sack-like outfits.

So guys, get some last-minute Halloween costume ideas from these frightening photos:

  • Mary Poppins

    Find a kooky hat, an old floral bag and go through your closet for a long black skirt, matching blazer and a white blouse. Wrap yourself up in a scarf, pick up an umbrella and you'll be "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" in no time.

  • Link

    The Zelda video game character requires a lot of green felt, brown boots, a makeshift sword and shield.

  • Grumpy Cat

    Paint your face brown and white, make some ears out of material from a fabric store and sport the biggest frown you've ever worn.

  • Gingerbread Man

    There's no need to bake actual gingerbread for this costume. Go the literal route and throw on loaves of bread around you and dye your hair ginger red.

  • Penny

    Get some cardboard and spray paint it bronze, attach it to your head and voilà! You are now a currency.

  • Grey Scale

    Ever wanted to look as if you lived in black-and-white à la "Pleasantville"? Just wear solely black and white and paint your skin grey.

  • Pregnant Zombie

    Flaunt your baby bump by pretending there's a zombie breaking out! Grab an old doll, some fake blood, glue and a shirt you're not afraid of ripping up.

  • Scarecrow

    Do your best Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow impression by cutting up an old sack, sew up the mouth and draw 'X's" on the sewed-up mouth.

  • "Where The Wild Things Are" - Carol

    This costume requires a bit more time and effort, but the results are spectacular. Go to your nearest fabric store and get black and tan material, and make the head, horns and nose out of paper mache.

  • Poison Ivy

    The "Batman" character is actually perfect for Halloween because there are so many leaves to pick from the trees! Glue the leaves to a bodysuit, paint your face with lots of sparkly green makeup and find a cheap red wig.

  • Red Bull

    This one is easy. Get a lot of duct tape, construct it into a dress, paint it blue and cut out the letters Red Bull from a print-out and tape them on the dress.

  • Pac-Man

    Construct the Pac-man out of cardboard and hang it on a black sweater by using straps.

  • Pretty Skeleton

    Paint your skin black with white bones on your arms, chest and face and throw on an old black dress.

  • Slave Leia

    Everyone loves a good Slave Leia! Grab some red felt and cut up dyed-gold cardboard for the skirt and make the bikini out of cardboard or felt.

  • Elliott From "E.T"

    Throw on a red hoodie and grab yourself a milk carton and bike handles. If you can't get your hands on an E.T. doll, put in your pet and wrap a white blanket around them!

  • "The Hangover"

    Even if you don't have a real baby, you can pick up a doll for cheap and wrap it in a blanket around you. Just make sure to wear a pair of sunnies and stick out your gut.

  • Lucy And Charlie Brown

    This super cute idea involves a yellow shirt, a blue dress and a black marker.

  • Edward Scissorhands

    Kink your hair out a bit with a hair curler, paint your face with pale white makeup and a bit of black highlighter on the cheeks and mouth and throw on a black turtleneck and white collared-shirt.

    Give yourself your best jheri curl, paint on a moustache and small goatee and throw on a ruffled and bedazzled shirt.
