Ah, the Cold War. It permeated life in the 50s and 60s--fiction better than reality with the James Bond films There were the tv series, like, 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E' which I loved. 'Get Smart' was hilarious, and 'Mission Impossible' was serious. Everyone tried to hm that very hard-to-hum Mission Impossible theme. Sort of like, 'doodoleedo...' Still hard. Even Mad Magazine got on the cold war bandwagon with Spy vs Spy.
For your cold war entertainment, here is Suzy Spy by the Ben Cooper costume making company.
What's fun is this is a girl spy--not a guy spy. Her spy ensemble isn't sexy or provocative. James Bond would look right past her. Her revolver is tucked in one pocket and the badge is in the other--which sort of defeats the whole covert thing about spying. But then--she's after a Snickers bar, not plutonium.
I love how the mask is advertised as 'breathable'. These masks were not breathable--not while you were running down the street yelling for your friends to 'wait up!'--hauling a pillow case full of sugary loot. These masks were worn on top of the head most of the time. But not the mask to our Suzy Spy ensemble. In fact, this costume has never been worn. The mask is fresh as the day it was made, albeit it's misshapen a bit. The costume itself--a champagne colored rayon--is creased but still fresh. There are no smells or rips. The box still has the cellophane over the lid.
The costume is a large--a girl's size 12 to 14. But it's not all that large; about 40" long and 32" wide. I'd say a 10 year old could wear this.
Thank you for stopping by. Please ask any questions. I'm pleased to answer.
