Now for something completely different

Alright, not totally, but a nudge to all of you late to the Halloween party. Our sister site www.museumreplicas.com still has some cool costumes for you to stand out. And I mean stand out, none of that polyester costume-in-a-box stuff, but real clothing that makes the character.

You’ll find steampunk (think Victorian era, Dracula, etc.), Monty Python and the Holy Grail (but whoever wants that must answer me five, no three questions), Musketeers, Vikings, Spartans, Romans, monks, pirates, courtly maidens, you get the idea.

Plus those hard to find accessories that make the outfit complete from jewelry and gadgets to belts, shoes and weapons. Yep, historical replicas that are real, so be careful…

Throw me a bone here, anyone out there? Drop me a comment every now and then, but only if it’s stellar and about me. Well, anything cool really.

Incoming!!!!

Looking forward to Nov. we’ve got some Frozen stuff on the way, plus additional Firefly items, maybe even a nod to Doctor Who…don’t blink.

So come back often if you don’t see something tempting and comply, er, I mean visit us regularly to check things out. Vader is kind of persuasive.

Universal Monsters

Hey we know Universal is going to reboot the classic monsters, but we love the originals. Can’t replace movies that started and fueled the horror genre.

So in honor of that we have a few new prop replicas in route as I write including Dracula’s ring introduced in 1944 and worn by many actors including Sir Christopher Lee, the 1932 Boris Karloff Mummy ring and the 1941 Wolfman cane used by Lon Chaney Jr. These were limited editions and are nearly sold out so you’d have to act very soon.
