When the green ghost with the healthy appetite slimed Peter Venkman on the 12th floor of the Sedgewick Hotel in Ghostbusters (1984) he was never referred to by name. The crew making the first film had dubbed him Onionhead or Little Spud and Dan Aykroyd often referred to him as “The Ghost of John Belushi” in interviews but fans had a different idea and named him Slimer.
But who wore the Slimer costume best? This illustration is a tribute to Mark Wilson, who wore the Slimer costume in Ghostbusters, and Robin Shelby, who took over for Ghostbusters II (1989). In the film, their black velvet covered legs have been digitally removed, leaving only movie magic.
Originally designed for “I Hate this Painting” A Ghostbusters-Inspired Art Show at Toy de Jour in Chicago, IL.
