Halloween came and went months ago, so I'm not sure why this crossed my mind. But if you were like me, a kid in the '70s, you hated those Ben Cooper and Collegeville boxed costume sets - the ones with the cheap, plastic mask and the jumpsuit with your character's name and/or image silkscreened on the front in day-glo ink.
And if you're anything like me today, your appreciation for these tacky outfits has blossomed in your old age.
That's why I'm thinking it would be a goldmine for whomever could recreate these dopey old images on t-shirts. Or has someone already thought of this?
I'm generally anti-t-shirt, but hey. I'm not completely immune to pop culture nostaligia.
So if somebody out there manages to get a project like this off the ground, let me know.
Cuz I'd buy a shirt with the old Ben Cooper Spider-Man design on it in a heartbeat.
