Who ya gonna call?

Khaki Flight Suit?  Check.  Name badge & logo patch?  Check.  Proton-Pack Laser Tag Pistol?  Yeah, that's what I've gotta do this week.

After a few ideas thrown around about a costume for this year's annual Halloween Laser Tag Game (October 27th), I landed on an old favorite of mine.  Heck, the last time I remember dressing up like this was in Kindergarten when I had this awesome jumpsuit with screen-printed logos on it that I'd wear to school on occasion.  Yeah, it's about time I was a Ghostbuster again.  I can't for the life of me figure out how I didn't arrive at this juncture sooner.  I mean, Ghosts... it's Halloween.  Perfect fit!  Proton guns shooting streams of light AT said ghosts?  Well, that just screams laser tag.

This week we've got a Mod Night, too.  Should hopefully allow me to put some work in on some "equipment" for this.  As it stands, it's just a tan jumpsuit with some screen-accurate patches.  It'll work, but I'm a completionist.  Gotta go the extra mile (or at least try to).  Then again... trying to aim a blaster like the ones the Ghostbusters use might be quite the hinderance during games, so it might work against me to go movie-prop worthy with this.

I've got a few options for it, but one thing is for sure.  Anyone who shows up to this game as a ghost, ghoul, or goblin might be going home in a trap.


  1. Great Idea!
    I would love to see some Pictures of the finished Ghostbusters look.
