    When were these done? I don’t know that many kids who’ve seen, let alone pretend to be, the Ghostbusters or Gremlins. Regardless, these are amazing.

    These are so brilliant, I don’t even know what to say. And I love that the groups of kids are both boys and girls because hell yes my local neighborhood group of kids played GI Joe and Ninja Turtles and X-Men together.
