RIP Stephen J. Cannell

Monday, October 4th, 2010

We took a week off, but we’re back in time for the Halloween season. With the passing of legendary writer and producer of 70’s and 80’s TV Stephen J. Cannell, we felt this costume was fitting tribute based on his award winning series starring James Garner. If it only came with an answering machine, it would be perfect. I think they used the mask for some of Garner’s other films and shows, keep an eye out for new posts about that. This was found at the Burkitts’ rummage sale in Millwood, SC.

It’s All For You!

I love old Halloween costumes, and just couldn’t wait until October before posting this piece of vintage horror. Looking for a scary costume? What could be scarier than the Antichrist himself? Mask and all black costume included, but unfortunately no temporary tattoos of the “mark of the beast”. By the way, if you can find the Father Brennan costume from this movie, it can double as a Doctor Who costume! This item was discovered at the St. Winifred Church Benefit Yard Sale in Perry, MO.

Last Train to Wrongsville, Pt 2

It’s not often that we see a rare prototype of something never produced. And to find something related to this never released 1972 Jerry Lewis project at all is amazing. If you haven’t heard of this film, I’m not surprised, take a look at this site for almost all the info that exists on it. I can’t imagine that anyone would want to prance around as Helmut Doork for Halloween, but this costume would have given those rare few who did the chance to do so. FYI, harmonica not included.

It’s not Halloween yet, but..

It seems like only yesterday that Britney was sporting a low-maintenance hairstyle and demonstrating the practicality of using an umbrella to gain access to an automobile (in which she obviously had locked her keys). This classic Halloween costume, found on clearance at the local Party Pit, really takes me back.
