Remember those Ben Cooper classic superhero costumes from way back when? Well they’re making a comeback this year!
Coming just in time for Halloween those classic costumes will exclusively hit Spirit Halloween stores. In the DC range there are three DC Superheroes – Superman, Batman and The Flash. But not only that there is also a Gizmo from Gremlins suit and two of the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Here’s an official statement from Mark Van Ohlen, the Brand Licensing Manager from Rubies:
“Ben Cooper has a big following and we are seeing more and more nostalgia brands from the ’80s and ’90s are very popular today. At San Diego Comic-Con we had a booth featuring the Ben Cooper masks that are coming out in Spirit this Halloween plus a collection of vintage masks and we debuted our T-shirt collection, which was a big hit with fans. We hope to expand the lineup of Ben Cooper over the next few years to include other beloved brands and characters and possibly expand into other categories.”Cited from Horror News Network
Here’s a closer look at the costumes:
So far this is the entire range, however I think these will prove very popular which will lead to more characters being released from the current and new franchises.
The Ben Cooper classic superhero costumes are expected to arrive late August, with each set costing $24.99. As it stands there is no word as to whether these will be available online, but you can find them exclusively in Spirit Halloween stores.
