Plastic Masks and Vinyl Smocks (working title)
Before the days of elaborate packaged Halloween costumes, there were creepy plastic masks and vinyl smocks. Remember them? We seemingly all wore these costumes as kids. Now hear the story behind those costumes and the history of the Ben Cooper Company and Collegeville Inc., as well as how the Tylenol scare of 1982 almost made trick or treating extinct.
Do you own a photo or video of you wearing these costumes? We would love to have it in our documentary. All we would need is the photo or footage you own, and the signed release form (which you can find below) which allows us to use your property in our documentary.
