The Guisers
Project info

GUISER, n. "in modern times one of a party of children who go in disguise from door to door at various festivals, esp. Halloween" - from a Dictionary of the Scots Language.

This series presents children during guising at Halloween in Scotland

Guisers venture out at Halloween, going round the neighbours' doors showing off their costumes and doing a party piece in return for nuts, sweets, fruit and maybe a few coins.

The children often plan their costumes weeks in advance and their varied choices reveal a richness of imagination as well as the complexity of their childhood world.
