Does your kid like slapstick comedy? Then she should wear the Children's Rubber Chicken Costume this Halloween. Included in the set is a tunic with headpiece. These props are used in comedy routines and by magicians. They look odd because they are the replica of plucked chicken. No one is sure how this prop got its start, but it became a staple and is still used occasionally by comics. Johnny Carson, former host of the Tonight Show, used to keep one at the set as a good luck charm. The mascot of the NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is a rubber chicken named Camille, who was used to help make science more appealing to people. Your child is very appealing even without the costume, but when he puts it on, we know he'll get lots of laughs.
