Horrific Halloween Memories
Anyone like me who was a kid in the 70s has probably got many, many Halloween memories of dressing up in foul-smelling, mass-produced “costumes” that were really just (highly flammable, I’m sure) plastic sacks with the logo of a TV show or movie stamped all over them. It wasn’t so much that you looked like Luke Skywalker, but you were wearing an Official Star Wars Plastic Sack with the words “Star Wars” and “Luke Skywalker” on it, along with a cheap plastic mask featuring oddly shaped eye-holes and a stripe of yellow paint across the top to indicate Luke’s blond hair, and that was all that mattered. (UPDATE: Don’t believe me? Here’s a picture of a vintage Yoda “costume” from the company that was the biggest seller of these vinyl monstrosities, Ben Cooper, that oughta show you what I mean.)
So, as Halloween approaches and in the spirit of those fond memories, here’s an appropriate link: the worst Halloween costumes of all time. Enjoy!
