I never had a Fangface in any version but what a timeless character, with all the classic features
of a scary monster mask. Go into just about any costume shop and you'll probably find one ~

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

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.

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 ~
