Halloween in the UK


Lovin' this selection of Party masks I found in a UK toy catalog, I'm assuming those are the Ben Cooper Universal Monsters masks being sold as a set without smocks, the things you learn!

Wow, those Kabuki/Power Ranger-esge masks are a trip!

That's really neat! I actually really like that nurse's costume, LOL. Ben Cooper was quite the racket back then, wasn't it? I had three or four Ben Cooper costumes from the early- to mid-'80s which I'd worn as a kid that I kept up until 2 years ago when we moved. I loved those crazy things, even though the masks made you feel like you were going to hyperventilate LOL!

This ad just gave me a great title for a new indy movie: "Roy Rogers and Neil Armstrong Battle for the Sun."

I think the "kabuki" masks are Guy masks, for Guy Fawkes-- ISTR seeing a Guy with one on Barking High Street.
