I am happy to announce that Bob Burns & I have teamed up to release a couple masks based on his famous creations from the dawn of Monsterdom. Bob who is well known & loved in the monster movie & collecting world, needs no introduction. His association with Paul Blaisdell & other monster makers over the years is legendary as is his status as top Crypt Keeper of some of the most iconic Monster movie props on the planet. He’s been an actor in many genre movies & TV shows, worked special effects & acted as a consultant for many other projects too numerous to list. He is also an all around great guy.
Our first mask is MISS SHOCK based on Bob’s make up appliance first introduced for Shock Theater TV. For a short history of the origin of this creation please read Bob in his own words: http://home.mlode.com/~spain/miss-wup.jpg
We decided that these masks would be great in ¾ like the classic Topstone masks of yesteryear. Miss Shock is available wearable with ‘good’ eye cut out or display as shown. It is limited to a max. of 24 only. In the photo below the hang tag is shown in the first block. It is signed on the back by Bob & numbered to each mask. Each mask will also be numbered.
Here is a photo of Bob applying the make up on his ever patient wife Kathy:
This is the MAD MUMMY mask based on Bob’s mask & costume first created for SHOCK THEATER TV in 1960. It’s a ¾ mask ala Topstone & can be ordered with eye for display or eye hole cut for wearing. It is limited to 24 masks. The hang tags are signed by Bob & numbered by me. Both masks will be available on Bob’s website & are available now directly from me. Email is vxxfx (at) hotmail .com for pricing other info.
