GIANT'S HALLOWEEN COSTUME - LARGE GIANT
Issued by Ben Cooper in 1968. This costume is the Giant Professor, and is very rare. These cheap costumes lasted about one block on Trick-or-Treat night! These costumes sold for $3.00 to $3.50 in the late 1960's. The thin plastic mask normally crack, or the rubber head band would break off. Seeing and breathing with these mask was terrible.
(*) Update: Notice that photos 10 and 12 are different costume print designs! Ben Cooper did 2 different Halloween costumes to make this more appealing to young kids. This costume was reused as with many of the Halloween costumes of this time period. Very interesting artwork with Deanna Lund being attacked by the Giant.
I purchase this item from Michael Melito of Boston MA, on October 30, 2000.
