One of the cool things about running this site over the years is that I sometimes get emails from people who were involved in the making of the movies, games, products and other things that I have featured on I-Mockery. The other day I received an email from Robin Navlyt - the actress who was inside the costume of Slimer from Ghostbusters 2! She saw the "10 Things I Liked About Ghostbusters 2" piece and was really happy to see herself wiggling around in the Slimer costume. What's more, she hooked me up with some photos of herself getting into costume and I thought you would all like to see 'em!
Can you imagine how much fun that role would be? "Yes, we'd like to cast you for the part of Slimer. You get to wiggle around in the Slimy ghost costume... and eat lots of hot dogs." Ok, so Slimer didn't eat any hot dogs in the Ghostbusters sequel like he did in the original movie, but I bet you somewhere, there's some lost footage of our favorite green ghost doing just that in part 2.
And here she is getting slime-ified while in the Slimer suit. It's pretty weird seeing Slimer with legs isn't it? Well anyway, I just wanted to say thanks to Robin for stopping by to say hi and for sharing the pics. Keep on Slimin'!
In other news, I got some interesting guts in the mail from Fright Catalog today. Normally I wouldn't think much about sticky eyeballs, ears and fingers since they're fairly commonplace novelty items come Halloween each year. However, these ones were part of the "Cannibal Meat Market" line - and thus they come packaged as if they were picked up from your local grocery store butcher. Check out a close-up of it here.
I like how they actually go the extra mile and include all the nutritional information. Who knew that eyeballs, ears and fingers were only 50 calories. Anybody looking for the a new diet fad? I think I've found your solution right here. They also make a nice recommendation: "*Best served with a glass of chilled blood." In all honesty though, these little sticky body parts don't hold a candle to the other ones they sell such as the Cannibal Meat Market brain and the foot. Take a look:
How's that for some nice Halloween decorations? It's funny; as tempted as I am to take this stuff out of the package and gnaw on 'em for a little while, that would basically defeat the purpose of it. The whole allure of these items is in how they are packaged, so I guess they're unique in the sense that you wouldn't really ever want to open them. You can check out the other ones that they're selling - including a hand, a heart and even a peeled off face - at this link. FrightCatalog has always been real cool to us over the years, so I never mind dropping a little plug for them too. That being said, if you want to buy anything from their site, be sure to enter in code "IMOCK5" during your check out and you'll get an extra 5% off the order price.
By the way, I strongly suggest you read through our latest horror movie moment about "Wishmaster" because there's the start of something in it you'll want to keep an eye out for in our articles throughout October!
On a final note, thanks for all the support you guys gave us in September. I can't believe we've already done a full month of Halloween content and still have another month's worth to go. It's been an absolute blast so far, and you can expect to see much more spooky stuff throughout October - including some really big pieces! And by "pieces" I clearly mean articles, not body parts. OR DO I? Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
Random survey: What are you dressing up as this Halloween? Share the details in this thread!

I'd say the funniest thing about the Cannibal Meat Market products is the "Made in China" label!
Shadow40000 (Guest) on 10/03/2006 1:51 am
Didn't Slimer eat a bunch of hotdogs in the first Ghostbusters?
As for the costume, I'm making a white shirt and butcher's apron look really nasty with lots of stains and fake blood. Then I'm putting on a pair of black chemical gloves and a gasmask. This combined with some fake blood on the arms and my boots should look really awesome. I'll get some pics sometime and put 'em on my site.
BTW this is kinda off-topic, but I finally saw Six-String Samurai and it was much better than I thought it would be.
Debra (Guest) on 10/03/2006 4:29 am
haha Those are great pics of her getting ready as SLimer!
I'm going out as my alter ego who has yet to be named... basically using it as an excuse to go out sexy as hell in a slightly off-kilter outfit and hit lots of parties!
a Flaming Carrot (Guest) on 10/03/2006 6:57 am
Those are great pics, kinda always thought that it wold be a guy for some reason...meh
And as for a costume... well I wont be going out on Halloween, because of all the people who dont bother to dress up. They have an extreme lack of Silly Strung covering their bodys in my opinion.
James (Guest) on 10/03/2006 8:02 am
I'm dressing up as a hobo clown for my costume this halloween, a homage to the ever famous Red Skelton. I even got a fancy top hat that I plan to put holes in, and then sew some polka dotted patches over them.
I did not think that slimer costume was so huge! That must have been a fun part to play though. On another note, brains are delicious.
Jimbo (Guest) on 10/03/2006 8:24 am
Well I am going to be a ninja pirate and I am going to be awesome.
Jason Kane (Guest) on 10/03/2006 8:53 am
i'm going to be a reaper,with this cool skull mask i found on ebay.
Gerzie (Guest) on 10/03/2006 10:17 am
My friends and I are going to be villians from the Megaman games. I think I may be Bubbleman because theres nothing scarier than lead bubbles.
Laura (Guest) on 10/03/2006 11:03 am
i'm gonna be an emo kid
i would probably take out the body parts and gnaw on them...i wouldn't be able to resist.
Steve (Guest) on 10/03/2006 11:48 am
I'm racking the brain trying to think of something suitably grotesque for this halloween but have yet to get any solid ideas.
As an aside, I must concur with the above poster regarding Six-String Samurai. I'd heard about that movie back in the early 90s and just saw it... Craptastic! They could've used some of those body parts as props though.
J. Tithonus Pednaud (Guest) on 10/03/2006 12:02 pm
I am totally going as a victorian man with a parasitic twin dangling from his sternum. I have spent months crafting the little bugger.
As for Slimer, My bother used to hang around with John Daveikis and he John even babysat me a couple of times. He went on to be the conceptual artists and the fellow who designed the mechanics of the original Slimer. He was also in Spies Like Us and played the disgusting L'il Debbull in the Dan Aykroyd directed Nothing But Trouble.
I believe his is a tech consultant these days for television commercials.
richard (Guest) on 10/03/2006 12:58 pm
I'm totally going as Ash from evil dead! they dont have a licensced chainsaw so, im gonna take my chainsaw from texas chainsaw massacre. I got a shotgun, the pants, shirt, im not makin much luck with the holster thingie around his body though, so im using a sword thingie. im so lazy :( I'll send pics ! ! ! !
peety (Guest) on 10/03/2006 1:03 pm
Wow those pics are cool
For anyone who is interested im going as DR salvador, any resident evil fan will know what im on about. just need to find some suspenders
Nicolyieq (Guest) on 10/03/2006 3:32 pm
I'm torn between being a classic zombie, or Sarah from Labyrinth. I'd really like to be Sarah, but I can't decide if it is lame (because I'd have to explain it) or if it is cool because only certain people would get it. I don't know.
Sicarius (Guest) on 10/03/2006 4:35 pm
Slimer is completely awesome. As to what I'm going as, I couldn't resist, and am now without anything but ramen for about two weeks, but I am going as V, from V for Vendetta.
Aks (Guest) on 10/03/2006 4:44 pm
"Wow those pics are cool

I want to see that double chainsaw your making. Im going as Silent Bob! I even got this awesome looking fake cigerate that Im taking and Im not talking to anyone until the end of the night! Yay for being a bastard to people on their porches!
Blodigar (Guest) on 10/03/2006 5:02 pm
I see what you mean about the Wish-master pick. As for what I plan to dress as for Halloween, I'm dressing as a formal faceless gentleman, and my brother is dressing up as Shackles the clown from Fright-catalog.
ColdFusion (Guest) on 10/03/2006 6:00 pm
My bedsheets are navy blue, so I can just throw one on and be creepy dark-blue-cape-ed scary wizard man. That's what I usually do...
Ghost Rider (Guest) on 10/03/2006 7:54 pm
Wow, and all this time I thought Slimer was an animatronic. Kool pics.
I want brainssss.....
and for Halloween, I was torn between being a Catholic Priest (that'll scare the children >:D) or being the Grim Reaper. I decided that Im going as a modified reaper: Clive Barker Cenobite style :D
I'll send the pics later
Ghost Rider (Guest) on 10/03/2006 7:55 pm
what are you going to be for Halloween?
Angryhydralisk (Guest) on 10/03/2006 8:17 pm
I dunno what I'll do for the 'Ween. Maybe I'll go to work as a zombie. Maybe a ninja. Or maybe I'll just go get Altar (collaboration of SUNN O))) & BORIS) and crash the whole day.
vctreality (Guest) on 10/03/2006 8:17 pm
I'm going to be Torgo from Manos. The master approves of it. It will be dark soon.
Bob (Guest) on 10/03/2006 8:41 pm
Me and a buddy are going as Agents K and J from Men In Black. When someone stops to look at us, we're going to use those little memory-eraser things on 'em.
Rev. Dr. M. (Guest) on 10/03/2006 11:59 pm
In this part of Seattle there's nothing for Halloween. So I may very well listen to a classic Zappa Halloween show or the DVD-A to celebrate. While pigging out on candy and Jones soda.
Steele (Guest) on 10/04/2006 8:51 am
I'm going as a undead slayer, like a guy whos one of the few alive.
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/04/2006 11:52 am
Shadow40000, yeah Slimer emerged from a hot dog vendor's storage box with a ton of hot dogs in his mouth in the first movie. In the cartoon, he was known for having a feverish appetite perhaps only rivaled by the Cookie Monster himself. And yes, Six-String Samurai is an awesomely bizarre movie. You also can't go wrong with any movie that features the Red Elvises.
Gerzie, Bubbleman is pretty much the greatest Megaman boss ever. I always felt bad for him because, well... bubbles were his weapon. I paid tribute to him in this Pixel Pals comic a while back.
J. Tithonus Pednaud, hah, that's cool he worked on Spies Like Us (one of my favorite comedies) and Nothing But Trouble. Most people seemed to hate NBT, but I liked it. I mean really, how can anybody hate a movie which features Digital Underground rapping their way out of a harsh sentence from a murderous judge?
Blodigar, glad to see you found the "secret" in the Wishmaster piece heheh.
Ghost Rider, Yeah I thought Slimer was all animatronic too, but apparently it was just his (or her) face that was animatronic. As for my costume, I honestly have no idea what I'm gonna be yet. I've been busier this Halloween season than ever before, so it's highly likely I'll end up throwing something together at the last minute.
Jesse B (Guest) on 10/04/2006 12:50 pm
-RoG-, you missed something in Thriller!
When it pans up after they leave the theater, it reads on the veiw board "Vicent Price's Thriller"
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/04/2006 12:53 pm
Jesse B, heheh yeah I know, I just didn't think it needed to be mentioned since it's right there in your face. The movie posters in the background seemed less obvious though, so that's why I called attention to 'em.
Ninjawolf (Guest) on 10/04/2006 3:32 pm
I know what you mean about NBT Rog, its actually one of my favorite comedys and yet a lot of people seem to dislike it. Also, I downloaded the Nightmare on Elm Street game and for some reason the walkthrough file won't work.
Mr_Share (Guest) on 10/04/2006 7:09 pm
For Halloween I'm going as a half-insect mad scientist-pirate captain riding on the back of his creation Scottish Lad (me wearing a pirate vest, eyepatch, and hat with antennae and bug eyes while I wear one of those inflatable costumes that makes it look like you're riding on the back of Frankenstein)
J. Tithonus Pednaud (Guest) on 10/04/2006 10:06 pm
ROG said: Most people seemed to hate NBT, but I liked it. I mean really, how can anybody hate a movie which features Digital Underground rapping their way out of a harsh sentence from a murderous judge?
Correction, muderious penis-nosed judge. That makes it all the more awesome.
Second only to FREAKED in the realm of weird ass WTF movies.
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/04/2006 11:37 pm
"Correction, muderious penis-nosed judge. That makes it all the more awesome."
J. Tithonus Pednaud, correction again: Murderous removable penis-nosed judge!
Let's see how long we can keep this going.
Andy (Guest) on 10/05/2006 4:42 pm
Im gonna be santa cluase with a knife in his heart carrying a pirate flag on a pole
Ryan (Guest) on 10/05/2006 5:11 pm
I'm goin as the Burger King King. I havent decided whether or not I'm going to install red lights in the eyes or not. My plan is to just stand around and stare at people, while randomly acousting others with breakfast sandwiches.
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/05/2006 7:21 pm
Ryan, I actually went as the Burger King last year. You can check out my costume here: www.costumecritic.com/?sid=387
Ryan (Guest) on 10/05/2006 8:43 pm
Hey -RoG-, did you see this?
I kinda got lazy this year and didn't preorder a costume. I hope there's some left by the 13th.
Ryan (Guest) on 10/05/2006 8:46 pm
By the way, where did ya get the rest of the costume, and how much on the whole outfit? I'm kinda tall, so I'll probably have to make my own anyways...
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/06/2006 2:08 am
Ryan, yeah I've seen that new mask, pretty spiffy. As for the rest of the costume, I think it was on Amazon or some costume site. Just search for "king" costume and I'm sure you'll find one.
J. Tithonus Pednaud (Guest) on 10/06/2006 11:08 am
Correction correction: Murderous, removable penis-nosed 106 year old judge!
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/06/2006 1:14 pm
Correction correction correction: Murderous, removable penis-nosed 106 year old judge who never lets a banker go!
J. Tithonus Pednaud (Guest) on 10/06/2006 1:52 pm
Correction x4: RAZZIE AWARD WINNING murderous, removable penis-nosed 106 year old judge who never lets a banker go!
-RoG- (Guest) on 10/06/2006 3:16 pm
Hey now, that's going outside of the movie boundaries haha. That'd be like me saying "Correction: murderous, removable penis-nosed 106 year old judge who never lets a banker go - played by Dan Aykroyd who was also a regular on Saturday Night Live and made audiences laugh with skits such as the Super Bass-o-Matic '76!"
J. Tithonus Pednaud (Guest) on 10/06/2006 4:13 pm
Little Johnny bag o' broken glass...
