That’s a wrap on #Inktober 2013 – also Happy Halloween

The following are the costumes that stick out in my mind from the earliest one to the last.

  1. Yes that is indeed a yellow bunny costume. Just take it easy I was 6.
  2. With a bullet is classic Ben Cooper Godzilla costume. Despite being the cheapest costume on the list at the time I couldn’t have been happier to put on that thin plastic mask that chaffed the under part of my nose and gave me a paper cut on my chin.
  3. The bat head one I had to look up because I think they only sold these for one year and were then discontinued. It’s quite possible that the NAACP ended it because to blend my face into the mask I had to wear black face and the name of the brand was Kooky Spooks.
  4. Is the Headless Horseman! I Unfortunately  I did not have access to a horse.
  5. Number 5 is Inky from the popular arcade game from the 80s Pac-Man.
  6. Return of the Jedi was  blowing my 11 year old hair back and I think I was the only kid my age that liked the Ewoks.
  7. Last but not least is my humble homage to the perfect movie – Ghostbusters.

That’s it! It’s been a fun Inktober and Happy Halloween!

  1. Very cool…that’s funny because I was asking some friends this week if they remembered what costumes they wore as a kid..I cannot recall any costumes I wore (figuring I must have had a Spidey one at some time, and kinda recall the sensation of wearing those Ben Cooper masks)…aside from a couple of parties I went to in the mid-late 80’s (an executioner and a ninja).

    I think anyone who grew up in the 70s or 80s had to have worn a Ben Cooper mask at least once.
