Savage Eye Skull Mask
« on: March 31, 2017, 02:56:45 PM »
Hello folks....I found this Skull Mask on eBay not long ago for a low BIN price. I've had a few Savage Eye masks over the years but I have never seen this one before so I thought I'd share some pics. It is marked Savage Eye 79 on the back....D

That's a nice looking classic skull. I like it. Thanks for sharing. Congrats!

Here it is from the 1980 Savage Eye catalog.



And in the 1983 Morris Costumes catalog.



Here he is in the 1989 Great Cover Coverup Catalog.

Thanks for posting those. It says the 20 line is cast thinner but this is thicker then any S.E. mask I've had.

My Pleasure. I'm just taking a wild guess here but in the '89 Great Coverup Catalog I posted it says there are 2 versions available the other being 16312 Skull Sr. (see 1990 catalog pic below). Maybe one of them is higher quality (thicker) because I don't see any other differences and if made from a foam master it would still have the '79 imprinted on the back. By the way I'll take a moment to be a fan boy here. I love your work. I wish I was collecting back when you were still making masks. Really great stuff.

That could be, hard to tell. It is large enough to wear but not oversize.

And thanks, I appreciate that.

The Great Cover Up was an odd company. There were rumors that they were affiliated with Don Post. I don't know if that's true. It would be an interesting study for one of our resident mask historians for sure.

Very cool Skull! It's aged very well.
