Ouch! I guess that answers my question. Too bad they didn't recreate it in vinyl.

Keep up the good work, jupiter!

Glenn, is the TOTS version somewhat small? I can wear my Skull--but just. Granted, I have a Bullwinkle-sized head (I literally take a 7 1/2 hat!).

I have a size 7 1/2 hat size too so it would be too small for me to wear. Even when I was stuffing it I had to be careful about the slit because the opening is small. Never really considered that issue since I only use it for display. There was a post on Amazon regarding this mask asking how long the slit is supposed to be. I told them about the "keyhole" at the end of the slit so if the slit goes beyond the keyhole you know it's been torn. They replied and said thanks for the info and confirmed that theirs had been torn beyond that point. So along with Kidagain's comment it sounds like this is an issue.

Doh!

I had a Batman cowl about 20 years ago that also ripped beyond its intended slit. It was a pretty good mask, too -- the back had a velcro closure. I did keep it long after it ripped, but never wore it again for fear of an even bigger rip.

'Still my favorite version of this old 1927 movie character. You'd never believe it
considering the limited mask edition was produced in the mid '80s but I didn't
get a copy until ten years later.

Congrats on another great vid, jupiter! Great choice of subject matter. It is kind of disappointing to hear about the size though. I have a fairly big head AND thick hair, so I definitely need masks to be on the roomy side.

Huna, those are two fantastic examples of maskery! I'm especially liking that Count Orlok mask. Then again, he's my favorite classic monster, so I'm a bit biased.

Another fine review, jupiter! But you're right, that paint leaves a lot to be desired. All-green would've worked so much better.

Despite the crude yellow highlighting it's a fun colorful character and
your reviews always help make these masks more appealing, j2.

When it comes to classic witch masks, I could never find fault with
this one ~

By the way, congratulations on today's impressive view/reply count, jupiter2. Just weeks ago,
I was hopeful your undying thread "might break" 10,000 views by Feb 1st ...

Thanks Maskahuna - Love that Wizard of Oz Witch.
Yes - as of today the thread has over 12,000 views and 400 replies!
And (not to jinx us), the HMA is still going strong on quite a bit of borrowed time. Let's hope it just keeps going!
