A lifesize human slinky costume is selling on Ebay for one million dollars http://www.ebay.com/itm/For-Halloween-HUMAN-SLINKY-The-Stuff-That-Nightmares-Are-Made-Of-/300623654324?pt=US_Costumes&hash=item45fe90edb4. The human slinky was created by Romanian-born performer Veniamin who's worn it on Letterman and to NHL games. Ten percent of the proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.
Yes....one millions dollars is quite the price tag. But think about how you would win every single costume contest out there! Just in Peoria you could do a week long bar tour and bring in several thousand dollars. You could have it paid for in say.....20 -25 years. ;-) Plus....after midnight you could wear it and fight crime. I don't think we have a 'Slinky Man' out there anywhere.
