Jim Barber and Seville, A Halloween Costume?
Posted by: Big Dummy In: News
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Jim Barber and Seville should feel honored that one of the hot selling Halloween costumes for the past couple seasons has been the Adult Ventriloquist Dummy Costume which looks quite similar to Jim’s trademark act, the Barber and Seville, which he performs nightly at his Hamner Barber Theater in Branson, Missouri.
Since the costume first appeared at various online costume shops, Jim has received several emails from friends and fans asking if he’s seen the funny, yet familiar costume.
Although the design and construction of the costume is different than Jim’s original creation, the similarity comes from the fact that the tall ventriloquist is holding the smaller dummy, and the “real” ventriloquists head is on the small body. It’s a visual illusion that is guaranteed to pop eyes and turn heads from all who open their doors on Halloween night.
“I think this is great,” says Jim, “and I encourage everyone to purchase one for themselves, even if you don’t intend to wear it for trick-or-treating. The more people seen in public wearing this outfit, the more normal I will appear myself,” said Jim with a chuckle.
The costume is available for purchase and immediate shipping from Amazon.com. Check out their huge selection of other costumes and Halloween accessories, not to mention just about any DVD, book or audio CD ever released!
