Swamp Thing Halloween Costume (1990)

Great balls of fire, I found it!
I’ve been looking for this costume for a while now. I’ve had collectors helping me and I’ve only seen one other, at Plaid Stallions. Not to say that there aren’t more out there, I just haven’t come across any. After looking far and wide for a few years, I found it on ebay. Funny enough, the costume was merely 3 hours from where I live. It worked out pretty well.

The costume was released in conjunction with the Swamp Thing animated series.

The mask is pretty easy to come by. There are a few on etsy in great condition. The mask that came with this costume was crushed (which I knew when purchasing) but I’ve had a duplicate mask ready for when I finally come across the clothing portion of the costume, I could complete the set. Below is the duplicate that I picked up a couple years ago. The design is quite odd and doesn’t resemble the cartoon or the comic book.

This is one of my Swamp Thing grail pieces and I will never be able to wear it, as I am not a youth medium.

The fabric is very delicate (cheap) and I am very happy with the condition that it’s in. I don’t believe it was ever worn.
