Big Bad Toy Store has begun taking pre-orders for licensed Halloween costumes of Captain America and the Red Skull based on the upcoming First Avenger flick.
I want to make sure we all understand each other regarding this.
If you show up at the door of Geekpropaganda headquarters wearing this Captain America costume this October looking for candy and you are older than 12 years old; you may get popped in the mouth. YOU are not Chris Evans and that costume shouldn’t be out roaming neighborhoods freely without the proper lighting and plot motivation. It’s possible that if enough people wear that costume out of context it will actually ENCOURAGE other countries to attack us on principal. Oh yeah – they also had a picture of the Red Skull mask. It looks like a red skull. You are free to wear this mask on Halloween because it’s kind of cool and nothing is scarier than Nazis. I mean “Hydra” agents. One more thing; they also sell a Thor helmet based on the movie of the same name.
Do you think the gentleman posing in the helmet is really unhappy or do you think he’s a “method Halloween model?”
I hope he got to keep the helmet.
By the way; JUST IN CASE you and three of your closest friends are giving serious consideration to being THE AVENGERS for Halloween 2011 – just give it deep serious thought.
