Dear Santa Week, Part 2: Halloween Costume

sgThis is the tunic part of a genuine Aquaman-Halloween costume by manufacturer Ben Cooper from the late 60s/early 70s. It comes with one of those masks that made you gasp for breath as a kid. And since of course a mask of just a blonde-haired guy isn't too exciting, they added a little orange domino mask just to make it completely baffling as to who you might be dressed up as.

I've seen this surface this a few times on ebay, and one time I almost had it, except I was outbid at the last moment. I had dial-up at the time, and now that I have high-speed, I will make sure that doesn't happen again.
