Most kids who grew up in the '70s remember those old Ben Cooper Halloween costumes. Invariably constructed of vinyl, the Ben Cooper line of costumes was probably the best known and most widely distributed line of kids costumes of the time. Kids could be virtually any TV, movie or comic book character that was popular at the time, from Superman to Star Wars to ...Isis.
I had never seen an Isis costume till recently and as you'll notice in the photo at the right, the costume, like so many of Cooper's efforts, bears little resemblance to the character's original costume (I remember being very disappointed in my Darth Vader costume one year). I assume some designer thought a white costume would be too boring, so they decided to add a bunch of colour to it, as well as a drawing of Isis herself on the front!
Another interesting thing to note is the black areas of the original costume are blue here, perhaps to aid in visibility at night? Who knows?
One more thing ... Joanna Cameron should have sued them over the poor likeness of the face mask. It looks more scary than heroic!
This costume fetches about $25 to $30 on the collector's market.
