If you live by the motto “The bigger the better” when setting up Halloween decorations, there’s a new “Ghostbusters” inflatable you’ll want to add to your collection.
An exclusive to HalloweenCostumes.com, this (currently out of stock) Stay Puft Marshmallow Man inflatable is simply gigantic — as in 25 feet tall! If you can’t fathom just how big it is, 25 feet is likely taller than most two-story homes. It’s the equivalent of four twin mattresses standing on end and stacked on top of each other. We thought Home Depot’s 12-foot skeletons were massive (they are!), but this takes it to another level entirely by more than doubling their height.
The price might scare you more than the figure will, as it’s listed at $999.99, but what else would you expect from such a towering figure?
If $999.99 is a bit much for your Halloween budget, there are two smaller versions that stand at 15 feet and 8 feet. The 15-foot version is priced at $499.99, while the 8-footer is $199.99 and still gives you plenty of height (both are currently out of stock). Just maybe not, you know, threatening-to-eat-your-entire-house height.
HalloweenCostumes.com has a few other giant “Ghostbusters” Halloween decorations as well, including a 5-foot inflatable Slimer for $99.99 and a (currently out of stock) life-size Slimer prop replica that’s made of soft foam rubber and stands at 2 1/2 feet. Priced at $499.99, the life-size Slimer is hollow, so it can sit on a flat surface or soft post, and features realistic paint that gives it a “wet” look. (Ew … and we mean that in the best possible way here.)
You’ll find some “Ghostbusters” Halloween decor from other stores as well, like Slimer Pathway Lights from Spirit Halloween.
You can also get “Ghostbusters” costumes from Party City, including an inflatable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man costume for both adults and children, plus a classic Ghostbuster outfit for men, women or kids.
If you’re looking to watch the movies that inspired all this festive fun, as of this writing, you could stream “Ghostbusters” and “Ghostbusters II” on Hulu, while the 2016 reboot is available to stream for free on Amazon Prime and 2021’s “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” can be streamed with a Starz subscription or via on-demand rental.
