Costumes that are offered today are highly detailed orientated and very true to the original source characters. But this wasn't always the case. Most of the costumes of the 70s and 80s consisted of plastic face mask with a rubber band attached with staples that kept it on your head and a plastic slipcover that featured some distinguishing characteristics of whatever the costume was. And they were glorious... glorious in their simplicity. I acme across a gallery of these old costumes somewhere on the 'Net (I lost it now) but I just had to share these awesome throwbacks. When you look at the costumes of today, remember just how basic shit used to be. Although I would rock the fuck outta that Godzilla jump off... Check out the gallery of vintage costumes after the jump...
