This is a pic of the 1982 Halloween costume (not the mask) by Ben Cooper:

Does anyone know if it was sold individually bagged like this, or have I just found one still sealed that is missing the box and mask? I would like to know because if it was sold individually I will add it to the archives as such. Thanks for your help.

Dan, i have seen bagged examples of this costume before...in fact, there's one here in town i've been toying with buying (it's got that lovely Cdn packaging going for it). So rest assured, it comes that way. :)

Thanks Shane. I figured it came this way but I wanted to make sure. I am suprised it doesn't have some sort of hang-tab or something to hang it from a peg.

The one i'm looking at here in town has a handle...i wonder if yours has been torn or cut?

The top of the bag looks very worn but there is not a rip. I suppose it could have had a handle but I'm not sure. At least you verified the existence of a bagged costume without a mask and that was what I really wanted to know. I know it seems trivial to a lot of people but I'm one step closer to completing my database. Thanks, Shane!

Dan i went a re-checked the one at the shop here and it's totally different than the one you've pictured. It's from 85 and has a large yellow cardboard/paper insert with a Joe logo that looks almost 60s style. It also looks to be a full camo pattern on the costume too....and guess what, there is a mask in it. It's a flat, cardboard mask with punch-out eyes and lips and not the traditional plastic masks we're used to from Ben Cooper. It's an interesting piece.

hey Shane, if you tell me how much that costume is selling for from 1985 I'll send you some money plus some for shipping and your troubles to send it to me? Let me know.
