Costume Spotlight: The Shadow

Collegeville Shadow Costumes 

 I gotta say, I've got nice friends. This month is always a bit of a stretch to come up with a whole month of Halloween updates. Enter my pal Matt, Shadow collector extraordinaire (check out some of his cool collection here) .

While I knew Collegeville made a Shadow costume, I had no idea how many. I'll let Matt take over here and explain the differences after the jump.

This first batch shows the large child size on the left, and the small child size on the right.
The large child has a slanted slouch hat, and a sewn-on Shadow red scarf, made out of rayon. The sleeves and legs are black
The young child one has more of an Inspector Clouseau-ish hat. The scarf is molded on and painted. The legs are purple. Neither costume comes with a cape in this version.

This above costume is by far the best, it says large child or adult. It comes with a screen printed body suit with great graphics, the slouch hat mask, slightly larger than before, and a red vinyl scarf. And best of all, a large vinyl black cape.

This next costume is also called "large child-teenager to adult". But must have been more budget minded.
gain we have the larger slouch hat mask. Vinyl scarf again. But this time the costume is just a cape, similar to the Ben Cooper "smock costumes". The Shadow appears as a smaller graphic on the front of the cape, and not full-bodied, which is a little cheap. But-- notice a nice little detail: the cape is edged with red piping on the underside to resemble the pulps and comics!
