Star Trek Week: Capes by Norben
Here's a bit of weirdness from Canada, I actually remember finding one of these in the 80s. Halloween distributor Norben released a series of low cost Star Trek cape and mask sets using what I guess is some Ben Cooper masks from the first movie.
It's a pretty low rent affair complete with a card that had to be produced locally, there is no way anybody at Paramount approved this magical thing.
Let's get a good look at this, a really bored Ilia, Kirk in a pink shirt (which happens a lot with Halloween costumes), Mr Spock and a man with a shrimp ring on his head.
Around the back is the sticker I guess you attached to the cape to make it official. Even if Captain kirk wore a cape, it wouldn't have a picture of himself on it. Although I do believe William Shatner's would....
Needless to say, I adore this thing.
