When you need gear for fighting the unknown, who ya gonna call?

This year, Disguise — the Halloween division of Jakks Pacific — is rolling out a full assortment of costumes, accessories, and roleplay items based on Sony’s Ghostbusters franchise. June 8 is Ghostbusters Day, the annual celebration marking the anniversary of the theatrical release of Ghostbusters in 1984. In recent years, the day has become popular for new product reveals, and this year is no exception.

Disguise is the official costume licensee for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and while most of the assortment remains under embargo until later this year, the company just launched a pair of costumes inspired by the Mini Pufts. The toddler Mini Puft costume and Inflatable Mini Puft Kids’ costume will be available at major retailers later this year.
