Aquaman looks like he's got a Green Lantern mask?
Yeah, it looks like they mixed it up.
I distinctly remember a friend in kindergarten having that Aquaman outfit, but with the proper blond mask. OH, I WANTED THAT OUTFIT..
Awesome Halloween blog header!
Ah sweet, I didn't even notice that at first.
Awesome stuff! Love the Aquaman one, but I think that IS the mask that they intended for the costume, since they thought he had to have a mask and not just be some blonde dude! LOL
Yeah, these old costumes were notoriously inaccurate. I remember a kid coming to school on Costume Day in 2nd grade wearing a Superman costume that came with a red Lone Ranger mask. I was all like, "Superman doesn't wear a mask!" The beginning of a pedantic geek.
Oh man, I need to track down that Alien costume. That is really terrible -- I love it.(Great minds think alike (again) if you've seen my post to kickoff the countdown.) ;)
The little known characters who received costumes is what shocks me. The Three Chipmunks?! Although, I say that as a kid who wore a Masters of the Universe Buzz-Off costume one year. Now that's obscure! Great pics Reis. And I second that the Halloween banner is awesome. New trend? Will there be Thanksgiving or Christmas banners ahead?
They look a bit more like The Three Skunks on the costume.
I'm thinking of doing a Christmas banner. But Thanksgiving can suck it. i hate that holiday.
Ah Ben Cooper...producer of cheap (BUT F'ing AWESOME) costumes. I have a (worn...and worn hard) Masters of the Universe Hordak costume, and my wife still has her Strawberry Shortcake one too. Used to have the psychedelic colors Spidey costume...but ended up selling it. Thanks Reis...quite a few of those I had never seen. ^_^
Wow. That chipmunk outfit could terrify countries.
I wish i still had all my classic costumes like these.
HA! Admiral Ackbar looks like he's wearing a lobster bib! Classic!!
