eBay Finds: Ace Frehley Vintage Costume

During my data mining into all things vintage monsters, novelties and such of my childhood. I also remember taking a trip down to Kmart in the 1970’s to look at the costumes every year with my parents. I was able to pick out one costume for myself. As far as I can remember through the years I have been Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein, Spiderman and Batman (I think once the Joker, too). I remember seeing the KISS costumes, but my parents would not let me pick those. If only I knew how much some of these things are worth now, maybe I would have taken more care of them. Oh well, se le vie.
