2016 Ghostbusters Costumes

My son dragged me to a local party store recently (to look for masks–which he wears year-round), and I got to browse the Halloween stuff. I was happy to see some new Ghostbusters costumes:

Best of all: no “sexy Ghostbuster” costumes! Not that I have a problem with sexy costumes, but it’s refreshing to see a focus instead on “brainy Ghostbusters.”

Having said that, you could easily repurpose this one as a “sexy Ghostbuster” costume:

Ghostbusters at Gen Con 2016

So, this happened at Gen Con last week…

Sandy Petersen and Greg Stafford signed my Ghostbusters RPG! Both seemed genuinely happy to see the book, and I think they also liked the fact that someone is still playing it.

I saw people playing the Ghostbusters board game, but not the RPG (sadly). I tried to make up for this by using my Ghost die in an RPG I played in. I rolled a ghost several times, which in this game just meant a 6, and that was good! Happy ghost!

Here are some other fun Ghostbusters-related shots from the con.

31 Days of Ghostbusters is Done!

31 Days of Ghostbusters is now complete! Thank you all for reading, and thanks especially to those of you who commented and shared and “liked.” In addition to writing 31 posts this month, I read 3 Ghostbusters books, bought 5 ghost dice, and saw the new movie 3 times—the final one yesterday, to celebrate being done with this thing! (I loved it, but it was a lot of work and plenty of late nights!)

Thanks also to John at Gnome Stew for running two of my posts there as well.

For the sake of completeness and easy navigation, here’s a list of all 31 posts.

Thanks again, and I hope you keep reading next week when I return to a more-or-less weekly schedule.
