Great video! I've tried a few times but I just cannot get into Ghost. Mask looks really good though.

Here's a wacky mask I don't recall discussing here before.
It's called POSSESSION ~



I've had this thing for decades. It was originally created back in
the 1970s by a fantasy artist named Rumph. The back view is
just as crazy as the front ~

I've never seen anything like that Maskahuna.  Love the expressions on the faces.

Incredible mask 'huna! I love masks inspired by fantasy art, like the IL Castlehead mask. Rumph used to make fantasy pottery (you can't get much more specialized then that.)

He's probably best well known for these '77 Star Wars mugs



But looking at some of his other work you can see his horror influences. This ogre and Scrooge look a bit familiar...




Doh!

Hey! I think I have that Vader mug!! One of my buddies got it for my birthday years ago but didn't say where it came from. It's in my office so I'll check it out to see if it's the same design.

Thanks for posting.

I love that mask 'huna! Rumph not only made masks and mugs but smoking apparatus too. I actually owned the Wizard second from left many years ago. Had no idea who made it until now. He was almost stranded in Mexico once but I was able to rescue him at the last minute. The details of that crazy story are for another time.  ;D Love the posts guys!

Thought I would add one more Creature Revenge mask to the corner before we shut down. One of my favorite Vincent Price roles and just a very cool character "The Abominable Dr. Phibes"





Greg at Creature Revenge Studios has decided to take a break from latex masks to pursue other projects so he had a sale of remaining inventory. Only 1 Phibes mask was available and I was lucky enough to score him. I think it's a great likeness. Thanks for looking.

CreatureRevenge did a great job on your Dr Phibes mask, Gory Glenn.
Congratulations on scoring that last copy. It's a good one.

Speaking of creepy dead guys who just won't stay dead and buried,
I present one of the greatest corpse props ever ~



I bought it from Death Studios back in the 1980s and kept it ever since ~

That's a great piece 'huna! There was one of these on eBay not too long ago and I seriously thought about picking it up. What's the old saying, "you snooze, you lose"? And you know me, I always like a good corpse.  The deader the better. ;D Death Studios makes really quality stuff. I think they hit the sweet spot in that they make really high quality masks and props at prices that are lower than the quality would indicate.
