Halloween Mask Madness, Day 24: Klowning around…


By Shawn Robare

We’re up to day 24, and today I have my second to last Death Studios mask ad that was ripped from issue #105 of Fangoria, published in 1991…

This advertisement marks a bit of a departure for Death Studios in that they have a couple of officially licensed masks in the ranks, specifically the two Killer Klowns From Outer Space offerings up top.  I also really dig the Lon Chaney inspired London After Midnight mask on the second row.  One of these days I hope an intact print of that lost film surfaces.  There’s a version floating around with a bunch of stills from the set, but it’s just not the same.  As for the masks though, some of the other standouts for me were the Tricerotops, Bat Demon & Demon Vampire, as well as the Reptile and Upside-Down Head masks…

Anyway, come back tomorrow for more mask tomfoolery, and if you’re looking for a ton of Halloween content all through the month of October, make sure to stop on by the official Countdown to Halloween site and check out the list of participating blogs for 2011.  You’ll be glad you did!
