With Halloween just right around the corner, it’s fun to look back at costumes of old. While we’ve covered this in the past, today I have a treat from the mid 1960’s that’s sure to interest you. These classic costumes were available for kids and were sold more like toys than Halloween costumes, although they were definitely marketed for kids to use at Halloween as well.
I really like the details here in the Batman costume (which had a separate utility belt to purchase) and the fact that we see some oddball characters featured, like Captain America and Zorro. This really gives a glimpse into what was popular during this period. A “Daniel Boone” style frontier man and an astronaut are a given. These are far superior to the Ben Cooper Halloween costumes of the period and if you wore one of these outfits on October 31st, you were probably the coolest kid in town!
