Mask

Why hasn't someone mass-produced adult-sized vintage children's costumes like this one? It'd totally be a hit with adults who remembered them from Old School Halloweens past.


I could see parents walking around with these on as they escort their children trick-or-treating.
It'd be fun, funny, and a "good ol' days" conversation-in-a-box. An adult showing up to a Halloween party dressed as a plastic-masked Batman would be a hit.

And best of all, it'd be flame retarded.

I'd buy a bunch. It'd be a gas.

And I'd totally buy a Devil. The mask-in-a-box I remember the most.

I bet they'd be expensive though, huh? That'd be quite a big box to hold my costume. The one I best remember in this style was a green werewolf. Before that was a cool skull one, eviller looking than this one. A cool Frankenstein one. Then I have a picture of me in a pirate costume/mask when I was four but I don't really remember that. I remember how my breath would collect in the mask and become kinda humid inside. And the rubber band would break and have to be restapled again and again until the mask was all mangled and didn't fit anymore. If I'd thought to save them I bet they'd still be pretty beat up.

I never wore one of those, but they do stir nostalgia. I finally got about to starting a blog, actually two, but I made my first post on the new one with a thank you to you guys for the inspiration to create my own. If you want to read the post it is the yard haunt one, the other is K any my garden blog.

Looking forward to see what you cook up this season.

What a great idea. I'd be first in line for one, even with the flimsy elastic band :)
