MISC. DISCUSSION / THE UNIVERSAL MONSTER ARMY WANTS YOU !
« Last post by Kidagain on July 11, 2019, 03:57:42 PM »
Dear fellow HMAers,the UMA would love to have you join their website.I know there a members that could bring their vast knowledge of masks and busts over to the UMA while still being members here.There are already members that belong to both and that helps with preserving the things that we all love. Please consider my plea for the sake of both sites.It seems no new members can join this site now so who ever now posts there won't be any newcomers to see them and add to the conversation.
                      Wishing Everyone Well
                                Jeff

There's an exciting new addition to my collection this month: a custom finished Delgado Gorilla!

It started out as a foam-filled casting to which I later added eye inserts ~

         

When this mask was in production at Don Post Studios, it was traditionally finished in black with faux fur hair ~



I chose to experiment with a different look. Since it was designed in the Hollywood style of olde, I began
looking at black&white photos of vintage movie gorilla suits. None of them appeared black to me so I
figured they must be brown.
Uncertain as to whether the character would work in this color, I turned the casting over to Mr zotzcoin
who laid all my fears to rest with a magnificent custom paint job ~

         

My one nod to DP tradition was using faux fur in the hair application. Unfortunately, this necessitated
creating patterns from which to cut the separate fur pieces. That was a major hassle but ultimately
eliminated a lot of guesswork. They fit together like a jigsaw puzzle ~

         

It required an entire tube of (what better brand?) "Gorilla Glue" to stick all the pieces on
but I breathed a heavy sigh of relief in the end. The grand experiment did pay off ~

That's a terrific sculpt, but the jaw looks too narrow to actually wear. GREAT display piece, however.

It's difficult looking at it for long. In another forty years, I'll probably look just like him!

It's a fun little mask, I've seen it everywhere for decades; now it's good to know a little history about it.
'Could easily pass for a bat mask as well. Thanks for the review, jupiter2.

Not a fan of the silver face, but do love the hair on that version. Great shape for a 30+ year old mask.
