He's no good to me dead...

Halloween 1980 and that's yours truly rocking the Ben Cooper Boba Fett outfit. I really liked this suit for a couple of reasons, the first being that you could see through the mask but people couldn't see in real well, the other being that the picture on the front of the smock totally looked like the action figure that I mailed away for a year or so earlier.

Love those old costumes that had a picture on the front of whoever you were meant to be - as if people wouldn't be able to figure it out otherwise.

Oh come one now! Everyone knows that we liked those costumes that a had a full length body picture on the shirt of the hero that we were trying to emulate. Everyone knows that Batman walks around town with a picture of himself on his shirt!

Why did they do this anyway? I can imagine that there were many characters that just didn't lend well to anything else but I always HATED those costumes that had the picture on the shirt.

I also have a Halloween countdown on my personal blog. I do it every year in October.

I don't think I ever had any costumes like that. Most of mine had the costume being the rest of the character's outfit.

I really wish I had the photo of me as a 4-year old in my Ep. 4 Princess Leia costume. Although it didn't really look much like her costume...I think I might make the real thing one day.

This year, however, I'm doing Nurse Joker-
