Sondre the long-tailed troll still isn't too proficient at flying, and his wiseacre tongue gets him in all sorts of trouble. But he's an expert cross-country skier and his tail lights up.
He keeps our garden going strong by frightening unwelcome rodents.
Ben Cooper #Halloween costume
Wishnicks were a fad toy in the 1960s that became more commonly known as the fluorescent-haired Trolls dolls from the 1970s to today. I can't think of any other costume preceding this one that was based on a toy line, so this might be the first example of that.
The Wishnick mask is in great shape, with its flocked hair still intact. The costume's top half with the great screenprinted graphics is in very good shape, but the attached rayon sleeves and pants do have some condition issues. (See the detail photos in the eBay auction listing). The box is in solid shape with only the lid's window cellophane missing, a common condition of these vintage box costumes.
But packed up neatly inside the box, with that so-ugly-it's-cute face peeking out, this item displays very nicely.
