What is it about vintage costumes that makes them so much more
bizarre—and so much scarier—than their modern equivalents? Were people
really that much stranger back then, or do they only look absurd in
hindsight? Anyone fed up with the animal-ears-and-a-bra option that—no

photography. I scoured the web for the wildest, weirdest costumes of
yesteryear, and came up with everything from toadstools to telephones,
and one guy in "fancy dress as a side of bacon."
is an activist artist from Moldova. He has been arrested a number of times by the country's police during his street performances. He has protested, using very creative forms of expression, against the corruption of the police and of the government, the infringement of human rights and of the free speech in Moldova. He is free now. This blog is dedicated to him.
