Let the Countdown to Halloween begin! This year on Cool & Collected, I will be showcasing items from my King Kong collection. So, without further delay, I officially declare October 2012 as “KONGTOBER 2012!”
What better way to kick of the annual Halloween celebration than with a vintage Collegeville costume. I’m not sure what genius thought day-glo paint would make for a good gorilla costume, but damn if it doesn’t work!
Collegeville used generic boxes with stickers that showed what costume you were buying.
Okay, so technically this may not be an officially licensed King Kong costume, but come on…
King Kong with chest hair = joy.
This costume is still rockin’ after all these years. I’d wear it.
“Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.” All month long, I will be showing off King Kong collectibles from my personal collection in a series called KONGTOBER, so if you’re a fan of King Kong and movie monsters, I think you’re going to like what you see.
