1978 Collegeville Halloween Costume Catalog


With it being October, I tend to get a little nuts with the Halloween costumes especially my favourite company Collegeville.


1978 was a fun year for Collegeville, sure they didn't have Star Wars but did Ben Cooper have the Hardy Boys? Not a chance. The 1978 Collegeville catalog is exploding with characters and creations that made the 1970s great including Jaws, Grizzy Adams, Farrah Fawcett, Superjoe, TV Super teams The Osmonds, Laverne and Shirley, Starsky and Hutch and the Monster Squad, just to name a few. It's like some weird TV special that probably happened...



Rob Reiner has one of these somewhere. Click on any image to check out all the fun of the 1978 Collegeville Costumes Catalog.

An Incredible Melting Man costume?! Is there a Torgo or Ortega costume as well? I know you can get a Tor Johnson mask :)
I know it's been said many times before, but some of those tunics seem weird having the character's image on them, yet the costume wearer also having a mask of the character as well. Perhaps this sets the bar for people wearing placards of famous paintings and pieces of art.
