Hey Razorwyre, I had no idea you were a co-founder of American Mask & Novelty! You guys put out some pretty slick stuff! Here’s two of my favorites.

The AM&N Night of the Living Dead series remain very, very high on my Holy Grail list.

If you have any pics from back in the day, I'm sure there's a lot of folks here who would love to see them!

Any information or pictures having to do with the Night of the Living Dead masks would be welcome indeed.

Thanks for the kind words guys!
i lost a LOT of my possessions in about 2001/2002, including my home. Most of my photos taken prior to that time went AWOL. I have a couple of the NOTLD masks in storage, maybe even a master or two, but thats about it. I do not own a complete set.
I really need to take a complete inventory of whats in storage, but that would be a massive job.

If you could ever find the time or inclination to locate those NOTLD masters I'm positive there are a number of folks here who would jump at some kind of limited re-release of any of those pieces. Just saying....

Id grab a copy of whichever NOTLD masks you can reproduce from the masters. Rights? :evil: You wont be mass producing them, we all owned them but someone stole them at maskfest. You'll just be replenishing what was taken from us. :lol:

Isn't NOTLD in the public domain? Who would have to clear the likeness rights?

the film is. the characters and their likenesses are the property of image ten.
its a complex situation. basically you can sell or exhibit prints of the film scot-free, but any other use of the title or anything to do with the film is owned by romero and friends.

The Hyde mask is incredible.  I've been looking for one for years. Any re-issuing possible?

thanks... and actually i did an improved version, co-sculpted with raven, that was put out during our last year. it blows that one out of the water. (honest) im just getting ready to hair my copy, so expect a photo of him bald in the next few days.
as to a re-issue, let me think about that and talk with my assistant about it.
