My first Halloween Woolworth costume 1970....
« on: March 07, 2010, 12:26:15 PM »
Hi gang,

I came across this picture and had to share it.. it's my first store bought costume (skeleton). The picture is dated 1970... my brother is wearing a Shazzam costume which I think was an old Hanna Barbara cartoon... though it may not be...:) I was 4 years old so this is almost 40 years ago...LOL!

Awesome... love seeing 'vintage' Hallowe'en pics. Well, vintage in the sense that we're getting to be vintage, haha!

Great pic!  Yes, SHAZZAN was an H-B toon from '67.  Created by Alex Toth.

That's great stuff!  Thanks for sharing!  You should make a doll of yourself.

Awesome. I love seeing these old Halloween pics. My second Halloween I wore a similar skeleton mask, my first I was Casper. Cool pic Adam.

Great pic. We're about the same age; the last generation of the Golden Age of Trick-or-Treating. My first store bought Halloween costume was H R Pufnstuf. I wish I could dig up a pic of that!

That is cool!  I love the old costumes of the day.  I used to have some pictures of me in the 70's but we lost them in the move to Oklahoma.   >:(    My first ones was a clown and a Planet of the Apes costume.  Also did a Sleestack one year.  I think that is how you spell that?
Long live the UMA!

Yes, these were the best Halloween days.. I remember my pumpkin flashlight.. My brother also was HR Puff-in-Stuff too... it was after this that  I got into the superheros, and alternated between Batman and Spider-Man costumes. I remember my local dept. store would put out large tables, and layout all the Halloween costume boxes with the see through windows so you could see the mask... Ahhh the good ole days....LOL!  Seeing this picture again makes me crave some tootsie rolls, tootsie pops, and nestle crunch bars....oh yeah!

I agree...that would be a cool doll figure... I think the Mezco living dead dolls did something like that a few years ago...figures dressed in vintage style Halloween costumes.

I even miss the SMELL of the mask on my face after perspiration would build up from running wild around our neighborhood.

Like most neighborhoods in the Midwest, we had an old, unlived in Victorian house just a couple of blocks away with a big tree lined, worn driveway (for carriages, I suppose!) that was a Halloween dare destination. Nobody had lived there for as long as I had been alive, but you could see in one room on the first floor, which was filled with dolls! Creepy!

That place is long torn down now and replaced with a church.

I miss seeing the throngs of kids in those Ben Cooper and Collegeville costumes as they would hit the streets at twilight. It was marvelous.
