At some point the month of September just sort of became "Intro to October", because everywhere you go you can already find tons of great Halloween stuff both new and (more importantly), old! And this Octember it only makes sense that I begin rabidly bumping up my antique mall travel rounds and start unearthing those early bird specials --before someone else beats me to 'em! So a few weeks ago I found a great pair of vintage Sylvester Cat earrings, and as luck would have it, my first really great, complete vintage kiddie Halloween costume find for 2022 is the same insufferably silly WB character courtesy of 60's Collegeville costumes! Very good condition all around, from the colorful box, to the super fun mask and slightly off-model frock smock design. Yep, you taught you taw a putty tat --and there he is! Also found an interesting trio of loose masks too: a Chinese princess, plus a cartoon dog I recognize but can't quite place his name, as well as a skeleton mask which I already have, but this one is in much better condition. Anyway, it's Saturday, so I'm off on my doublin' down rounds in search of more More MORE!! Stay tombed...
Pleas tell me that last one isn’t supposed to be Kimba the White Lion
It's interesting when the 3D mask is more on-model then the smock!
I remember that blow mask, but never saw the other two. I love the color scheme on the clown mask, and the jaunty pipe. That's a cool image!
Maybe that looks a little bit like Dennis the Menace's dog Ruff? I can't imagine they made a Ruff costume, though. I just freaking love the pipe-chomping clown skull, too. I want to see the box and frock that came with that beauty.
I'm surprised how accurate that Sylvester seems. Usually it's really unconvincing when they make a three dimensional model of a cartoon character. I'm usually immediately aware of all the possible angles years of cartoon cel art always managed to avoid. But this Sylvester is really very good.
