The Tampa Bay Ghostbusters – charity enthusiasts and frequent IDW comic cover models – have been featured in a detailed and sizable article in the St. Petersburg Times.
Creel, 31, has been a fan of Ghostbusters since it debuted in 1984. Over the years, he’s watched the movie, the 1989 sequel and the animated TV shows that followed more times than he can count. One of his best moments was when Dan Aykroyd, a co-star who helped write the movie, signed his ghost-fighting proton gun.
Creel’s Belleair living room is a shrine to his spooky passion, which he’d love to spin into a job. He’s got Ghostbusters stuff galore, from autographed posters to a containment unit for storing “negatively charged ectoplasmic entities.”
Creel and his friends are as much fans of the movie as they are prop builders. It’s not unusual for them to spend weeks or months making a proton pack or ghost trap to exact specifications outlined on gbfans.com.

And for everyone wondering about the colours;
The t-shirt creator doesn’t think they have other colours, but he did say that the actual shirts aren’t as they look in the photo. It’s actually an off-white rather than yellow, and a light blue instead of pastel-blue.
If you followed coverage of The Autumn Society’s 3G art show, you’ll likely recall Scott Derby’s amazing Trap Em All design, heavily inspired by both Ghostbusters and classic tattoo styling. And a few of you even said it should be turned into a t-shirt.
Well, guess what…?
The shirts will be available November 1st at Tee Fury – for more information, check out The Autumn Society’s post on the shirt. BUT! It will only be available for 24 hours (as with all Tee Fury shirts)! The cost of the shirt is $9 with very affordable shipping (starting at $2).
Thanks to Joseph for the heads up – and, of course, being partially responsible for this awesome shirt coming into existance.
