Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Costume

Those of us who grew up in the 1980s remember with fondness the first time we saw the movie Ghostbusters. I was a teenager when the movie came out, and it remains one of my all time favorite comedies. The casting was perfect, and Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd were hilarious!

There are many great moments from the film, but one of the most popular came towards the end. The Ghostbusters team has been told that the destructor will soon arrive, and that it will take a form chosen by one of the team members. They tell each other to wipe their minds clear, to think of nothing, and all seems good. Then, they hear the pounding footsteps of something massive.

It turns out that Dr. Raymond Stantz (played by Dan Akroyd) accidentally thought of the image of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, something that Ray says, "...could never, ever possibly destroy us." The image of a giant marshmallow man with a friendly smile on his face was in complete contrast with the rampage and destruction that he caused, and that made the scene all the funnier.

Despite the anger they felt towards Ray, the team pulls together and manages to destroy the destructor. In doing so, the destroyed marshmallow man flung gloopy, sticky marshmallow everywhere. It was refreshing to have a creature destroyed without seeing blood all over the place!

Adult Costumes

You can dress up in a Stay Puft Marshmallow Man costume for Halloween, or just for fun. Because, you know, who doesn't want to dress up as a giant marshmallow? There are several styles for adults. Most are inflatable, meaning they are puffed up just like the big white guy in the movie.

Child Costumes

Just as with the adult costumes, there is also an inflatable costume for children, as well as one that is simply padded. There are also costumes with and without a Stay Puft head.

The toddler costume for the Stay Puffed Marshmallow Man is padded, not inflatable. It also doesn't have a head mask like the costume for older children and adults do, which is a good thing. Toddlers don't need the added distraction of a facial mask when they dress up in costumes.
