Costume and prop replica company Anovos, known for their star trekking war merchandise recently announced they’ll be producing Ghostbusters costumes or uniforms along with collectibles, prop kits and to scale prop replicas. What will that mean to ghostheads? Anovos Productions LLC anticipated our questions and created a F.A.Q.

Josh Pell, designer and founder of Nookiee unveiled at this years’s NYCC Ghostbusters footwear. These high end kicks (yeah I’m cool) besides being stylish (depending on your age and tastes) emulate our favorite Ghostbusters (which is all of them naturally) along with additional designs featuring the “no ghost” logo and Gozer. My friend Tom Gebhardt (center pic above) provided more info. They are color matched off Spengler’s GB2 uniform archived by Sony making… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich Since writing about that mysterious ’80s popular characters mail order catalog, ghosthead Lanny D remembered where we could order that catalog from, NOW comics The Real Ghostbusters title. That would make sense as I (or possibly with help) had to order that catalog from somewhere. Fortunately too, I scanned every issue from my NOW comics (Ecto-Containment Print Is Dead Page) The Real Ghostbusters collection for digital preservation to… Read More

During the ’80s (near the end of an era) I remember a black and white (their could have been color, but why would a mail order company spend the extra dollars?) catalog where you could order at least a kids official Ghostbusters costume. I can vividly remember coming home from school that day and being excited when “the catalog” was in my family’s mailbox. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was starting to overtake Ghostbusters popularity. I remember… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. Even though I ordered my Ghostbusters flight suit last October and already had the patches I didn’t have the right boots. Actually I never had near screen accurate boots for my Ghostbusters costumes, er uniforms. As an aside the comedic actors basically wore military grade garb because of Dan Aykroyd’s military/”tech” interests. Also their’s the idea that the Ghostbusters can feel like “ghost janitors.” Bustin doesn’t always make… Read More

Note: Originally appeared at my personal site, iRich. On March 1, 2014 after almost 5 months I was finally going to take my Tru-Spec flight suit and Ghostbusters patches to a professional tailor for sewing. Their hadn’t been a rush, of course now that I had a event coming up in a week, time was of the essence. Friend and colleague Bill had similar thoughts and wanted to come up to expedite our “business” needs for… Read More

Note: Originally posted at my personal blog, iRich. If you’re not familiar the Ghostbusters movie that became a worldwide phenomenon could have been called Ghoststoppers. Ghostbusters, not to be confused with The Ghost Busters is a ’70s TV show. As Ghostbusters was being shot in 1983, Columbia, today Sony Pictures hadn’t secured the rights for the title. While filming the “end of the world is upon us” sequence with the Ghostbusters and a lot of extras shouting “Ghostbusters!,” then… Read More

Note: Originally posted at my personal blog, iRich. It was going to come up within 5 minutes, best to start talking about it now. To say I’m a big fan of Ghostbusters would be an understatement. Obsessed usually describes it. I loved the movie since I was 6 and saw it during its first theatrical run. Their was always a wonderment about people who would want to and could actually catch ghosts. The equipment,… Read More
