You know the one I’m talking about.  Usually with a sheet on the bottom and a GIANT jack-o-lantern over the head. They mostly only show up in olde timey illustrations and while being super cute they seem to completely defy the laws of physics.

The place I’ve seen them show up most is in old Brach’s ads…

How can that be????  Is there another tall kid under there holding the whole thing up??

Or is the jack-o-lantern on some kind of stick or pole?  Like this…

But it’s actually pretty hard to find a live action example of this costume.

I got all excited when I saw this…

But no dice.

And this is about as close as I had gotten…
