Ghost Hunters Farewell!
After 11 years, the Sci-fi channel’s successful show Ghost Hunters made ghosts cool again. They started it all, but alas 2016 was the show’s final season. When Jason and his team (we like Dustin) go out to a supposedly haunted location, I’ll admit I’m eager to see what turns up. Or is “anxious” the word I should use?
You know that feeling you get when you feel something brush across your face but you can’t see anything? Then you run to the phone to get TAPS out to your house immediately? Those are ghost fears. You probably just accidentally walked through a spider’s web, but never mind. Ghosts are on your mind.
And what better way to scare someone else the same way than with an excellent ghost costume. Good on Halloween or on any Wednesday night.
Yeah, this should do it. The guy on the left may remind you of Edvard Munch’s famous painting, “The Scream.” Hard to believe that is not intentional, but if you want to, when you’re in this costume you can make blood stream down your face on cue. Through the magic of technology, when you want the blood “special effect” you just squeeze the hand-held pump! Very cool.
Although it’s been a few years now since the Ghost Rider movie was out, I still pause to watch part of it when I’m zooming through the cable channels. Nicolas Cage has done some pretty creepy roles, but this was one of his “brighter” ones. Heehee. Ah, yes. I remember it well. (If you haven’t seen this cool movie, you can order a copy here.)
Good to know that this is an officially licensed Ghost Rider™ costume, based on the Marvel® comic book character.
I’ve noticed when people say they’ve seen a ghost, it’s not usually Casper. It’s usually someone dressed in period clothing. Notsure why that is. I guess modern day ghosts don’t show up as often. On American TV shows, they’re usually dressed in Civil War-era clothing, but for some reason on international TV shows, the show up in chainmail or dressed like Marie Antoinette. Go figure.I guess this ghostly gent would qualify as being dressed in “period” clothing. Can’t remember the last time I saw someone dressed in top hat and tails. Well, actually, it was on Turner Classic Movies the other night. That Fred Astaire was quite the hoofer.
Here’s Elsa, the Ghost Maid. (Wish I had a non-ghost maid myself!). I think the last time I saw her was at the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland.
Or how about those pirates? There’s gotta be lotsa dead ones, so some of them are gonna come back as ghosts. If that awesome Jack Sparrow costume didn’t get you, maybe this pirate ghost skeleton will do it. It includes: Jacket, Bone Shirt with attached Vest Front and Belt, Pants, Skull Mask, Elbow Length Long Bone Gloves, Hat. Although the sword is not included, it’s easy enough to pick one up here.
