Who ya gonna call??
Zuul Dog Costume by Olipra
There is no Fido, only Zuul! Oh my, if your four-legged friend is willing this demon costume would make for the ultimate pet companion cosplay. I suggest heading to Central Park and reenacting the scene at Tavern on the Green to the horror of the tourists. (And by horror I mean delight.)
Rosie the Ghostbuster Art Print by Kellsworth Ink
Ghostbusters come in all shapes and sizes and this year brings us the all-female version ready to take on the specters of 2016. This timely Rosie the Riveter Ghostbusters mashup is perfect for the new movie and I can already imagine the most amazing cosplays of this art come to life.
Stay Puft Fridge Decal by Rapscallion Design
Clear your mind and imagine your boring white fridge transformed into the most harmless thing. Something you loved from childhood. Something that could never ever possibly destroy you. The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. This fridge decal brings Mr. Stay Puft to life and he’ll happily greet you every time you go for a snack. Just don’t make him mad.
Ghostbusters Book Quote Poster by Little Gems Printables
“You’re right, no human being would stack books like this” – Dr Pete Venkman. Perhaps it’s because my mom is a librarian but Venkman’s sarcastic book quote was always one of my favorites. Hang this in your home office or gift it to a friend who always states the obvious. You know the one.
Framed Ghostbusters Minifig Art by Simply Chic Gifts
Minifigs bring childhood memories to life and framing them up makes for some fond memorabilia. Since original minifigs are often rare and hard to find, here replicas are used to recreate versions of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddemore, forever frozen in a timeless toy art tribute.
