It seems that Halloween 2010 will forever be known as the year of BLAGOWEEN! There has been such a huge BLAGO craze.... the masks paired with business suits, jail jumpsuits, or with Elvis jumpsuits... the mask used in lawn displays.... and even Blagoween parties with Blago-themed costume contests. I'm humbled and humored by every new article, newsclip, and photo of people wearing the mask or creating displays with the mask. Watch the news clip on ABC7 Chicago news:...And here is a quote from an article on the ABC7 Chicago website:
"With more than 3,000 masks in stock, customers can find just about anything they can dream up. But one mask is more popular than most. 'Well of course it's the ex-governor,' said Chuck Giovenco, manager of Fantasy Costumes. He said the store has sold more than a hundred Rod Blagojevich masks at $39.00. 'We have plenty left for the rest of the season.' "
