I will be listing some cool vintage Halloween costumes for sale over the next few weeks and today we have a super tough one to find with a nice box! The Creature from the Black Lagoon by Ben Cooper!
This boxed classic displays great. Please use all photos as your guide for condition and ask any questions that you may have. I can even provide more photos if you need them. The box is in great shape with its cellophane in tact. The mask and the plastic portion of the costume is in excellent shape. The mask is near mint!
The cloth portion of the costume is very wrinkled and has various light staining throughout that is very common with these vintage costumes. The cloth portion of the costume could also use a very light steam ironing by the next owner if he/she chooses to do so to make it more displayable. The cloth portion also has a large split in the "butt" area and a few seam splits where one of the cloth arms meets the plastic shirt portion.
This never bothered me as I only display my costumes in the box. Having splits or frays or tears in these old cloth costumes is very common with these.
This piece displays great and it would be hard to find a much better example and take awhile to do so! Ben Cooper, Collegeville, Halco etc! The item "Vintage Ben Cooper Creature From the Black Lagoon Boxed Costume!
