Terms: You can return any item to me within 10 days for any reason. If I totally misdescribed it, I will refund your postage both ways. If you are dissatisfied, you pay postage both ways. Note: These costumes are 20 to 70 years old. Generally, they are not in Mint condition. Some have been worn once, many years ago. All cloth costumes have all been ironed some time ago, photographed for my book, and then put back into the box (if there is a box). The thin plastic that was used to make the masks is very prone to getting cracks at the edges. Assume that all thin plastic masks will have these cracks. The fireproofing material that was used on these early costumes has a tendency to darken with age (it will usually show in the photograph). There may be some discolored areas due to age. If you have concerns, please ask in advance.

1968 Beatles, Yellow Submarine/Blue Meanie Halloween Costume by Collegeville. The Holy Grail, 1968 Beatles Yellow Submarine/Blue Meanie costume with its original mask and box and in just about excellent condition. The mask has some small cracks that have been stabilized and there is a seam split (invisibly sewable) on the left leg that is about 4 inches and shows as a pucker in the photos. This Collegeville King Features Films costume is the greatest Halloween costume.) In 1968 they appeared in the Yellow Submarine movie. They appear on the front of this costume and the mask is the dreaded Blue Meanie. It was a Peter Max inspired animated movie.  This was the first costume to be inspired by a song. Joining the Beatles are the Butterfly Stomper, two Apple Bonkers, Jeremy Hillary Boob Phd. and yes, the Yellow Submarine. This appears in my book on page 125 and in 2001 the costume was selling for $750-$950 with a mint example selling for $2,440. Item #21-101, $650.00
