Demented Infant Costumes: Octobaby and Carriage Critter
Specter Studios makes these two insane infant costumes when they’re not churning out an array of other detailed masks, costumes and props for haunted houses, hardcore Halloween enthusiasts, and, uh, science fiction junkies.
For the record, use of the word “demented” in the title isn’t an insult. It’s how Specter Studios describes the costumes.
A receiving blanket with a hole cut in its middle is slid over your baby. A drawstring cinches the hole closed. Then you snap a latex bug or octopus shell around your child. Oh, and the shell glows under a black light.
All of you worried parents can rest easy. These costumes are conceived, designed and made in Pittsburgh, Penn., not Dongguan, China.
I exhausted myself commenting about the company’s bloody baby bonnets today. Think whatever you want. My brain hurts.
I just have one observation. Imagine breastfeeding your little monster in public. Picture what that scene looks like with your baby’s head obscured by a shirt flap or towel for modesty, while the octopus or arthropod end sticks out for the world to see.
