Title: Is one of the Beach Boy wearing an unproduced Uncle Creepy mask?
Post by: Josh on November 21, 2017, 09:59:20 PM
There was an Uncle Creepy mask advertised in the 70's that was never produced. I assume that if you sent in for one of these masks, you'd get either the 800 or DeluxeCreepy.

However,  is this unproduced mask being worn by one of the Beach Boys in this pic?

Sure looks like it. How'd you stumble across that Beach Boys photo?

I watched Charles Manson: Superstar yesterday and this photo was featured very briefly.

'Fun photo, Josh. I doubt more than one of those unproduced CREEPY masks
was ever cast, probably because Verne Langdon disliked it so much.
I once asked him what became of the original mold and he replied "Oh, I hope
it got broken". However, I believe the alien from 1965's The Wizard of Mars is
a close relation. Both share sculptural elements ~
