Adventures in Ghostbusting...

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

I grew up with Ghostbusters. With the possible exception of Transformers, no franchise shaped my childhood more. In August of 2017, it was time to show my love. It took some time and more funding than I'd like to admit, but the results are totally worth it. Retro Injection is proud to present the following ghostbusting gallery:

It's fun for Halloween and conventions, but it's even better on random occasions. People always smile when they see a Ghostbuster, and making people happy is really what it's all about.

The kids wanted to try out the proton pack, and I let them flip a couple of switches. Their mom was thrilled.

I later learned the ghosts were Obi-Wan and Yoda.

The above photo was taken at the Monroeville Mall, which is where the classic zombie flick Dawn of the Dead was filmed. I grew up in Pittsburgh, and went to this mall many times as a kid.

My wife puts up with a lot.

Close enough!

Note the slime, which was re-applied throughout the day. Sometimes you have to suffer for your art. This was well before I upgraded to the Spirit Halloween Ecto Goggles or picked up my PKE meter.

I'm a huge fan of '80s horror! Retro Injection has articles on The Stuff, Return of the Living Dead Part II, Day of the Dead and Slugs!

Check out that vintage Akira shirt!

This Toys "R" Us got its own tribute upon closing.

This was just an arbitrary day at our local mall, home of a legendary arcade.
