I’ve been looking for an excuse to rearrange the Batman shelves , and this week’s challenge from the League of Extraordinary Bloggers was as good a reason as any. The topic was “Blue” and I immediately focused on Batman in his proper attire, the old blue and grey outfit. A lot of these items are from that glorious year of 1966, when Batman ruled the earth, but there are also items from the 70’s in there as well. I’m always on the lookout for vintage Batman items to add to my collection — having a focus while hunting flea markets and antique malls makes things much more fun and challenging.
31 days of King Kong–what could be better? I had a lot of fun with this daily blog challenge, though it was more challenging than I would have thought. If I do another Countdown to Halloween, I will have to plan better, and not just grab something off the shelf and photograph it every morning.
Believe it or not, there are a few King Kong items from my collection that did not make it into the Countdown, including the 1976 movie poster, but I accomplished what I set out to do, which was to showcase the wide range of treatments King Kong has received through the years at the hands of artists and toy manufacturers. I hope you enjoyed October as much as I did!
