Halloween in The 70's - The Good, The Bad & The Flame Retarded!

The Hulk is absolutely spectacular!


"Why'd you dress up like Peter Criss?!? Even Peter Criss doesn't wanna be Peter Criss!"
- Peter Griffin

I had a Batman suit like these - they were cloth "playsuits", and were a lot more durable than their Halloween counterparts. My youngest son still dresses up in my old Batman suit from time to time.

I wonder how many ass-kickings you were dealt wearing these abominations?


(sigh)... another Peter Criss. See above comment.


I really like the Jaws suit - kinda silly, but still cool.


I wore that same Spidey suit in 1976 when I was four.

Mork from Ork. Meh.

This one might be from the late 60's as I don't remember any of these, but I like them!

Ready For The Big Night!

I decided to dress up like the lead singer of Quiet Riot... in his um, current state. Too soon?


I love the giant bat with the glowing eyes - kinda un-nerves me while I'm watching TV

My wife did a great job on the indoor decorating!


Logan had a Halloween party last night, and they had a frightfully good time!

That's Logan as "V"

The left side of our graveyard out front.

... and the right.

Will really got into spraying the blood all over the front porch!

...and the murderer is still here!!! (if you look closely, you can see the string that pulls the Grim Reaper across the porch going into our bedroom window)

DEATH IS COMING FOR YOU!!!

You'd Best Be Careful Where You Stick Your Nose...


And you thought you were having a bad day?

Ain't it The Truth!


I bought about 30 pounds of candy this year, but hopefully I made the house so damn scary that only the bravest souls will dare to claim any. Pictures to come...

Ghosts of Halloween's Past....

1997 - yeah, I can tell you're diggin' the codpiece.

1997 - My wife-to-be actually wore a collar that was connected to a chain that I held. Now if that ain't love, I don't know what is!

1998 - The zombie and the ice demon!

1993 - I wish I could say that this is my hippy costume, but sadly, it was just my clothes....(sigh)

1992 - "Uncle Sam" the Grateful Dead mascot

1982 - PUNK ROCK BADASS!

Epic Pumpkins!










The best from around the web!

Check Out My New Mask!


I'm dressing up on the cheap this year - not bad for $5 at Wally World! I got a fog machine, too!

Star Wars Sugar Skulls!



Artist José Pulido created these charming Star-Wars characters done in the traditional Mexican art style one sees around Día de los Muertos time. Starting at $10, they're affordable, too!

They Just Don't Get it....



Plaid Stallions posted this great article from 1980 questioning the play value of Gre-Gory; a toy rubber bat with an exposed chest cavity that oozed blood. Yeah, what 10-year old boy would have any interest in that?!? I had this toy as a kid and absolutely loved it!
Pfft.... dumbasses.

Great Trailer for New Book on Comic Censorship in The 50's!



As a HUGE fan of the old EC Comics from the 1950's, I really need to pick this one up! It's really interesting to think that they held Senate Hearings to discuss how Crime and Horror comic books were turning our youth culture into a culture of delinquint serial killers and sex fiends.

I'm Sorry, But Nothing Out There Today is Even CLOSE to Being as Creepy as These Vintage Halloween Masks and Costumes


Every one of these guys scare the Hell out of me. Even on Halloween, if I saw even one of them comin' down the sidewalk - I'm crossing the street. Friggin' creepy.

Another Example of Why Alex Ross is The Shiz-Nit!


When I have my Batmobile, this original painting will go on the wall of the garage. Oh yes... it will.
