Halloween Mask Madness, Day 13: It’s a Tuxedo Trap!


By Shawn Robare

We’re up to Day 13 of the countdown and today I’ve decided to share the ritziest of the vintage monster mask ads I’ve been able to cobble together.  Yet another Don Post as, this one hails from an issue of Fantastic magazine published in 1984…

I sort of saved this one for the 13th post because of all the models wearing tuxes in the ad.  It’s a celebration of the second spookiest day in October.  Anyway, this ad is also cool because it features a couple variations on some Gremlins masks, as well as some classic monsters, Star Wars, and the E.T. mask I shared last week.  Whereas I got a little cheeky about the inclusion of the Bith cantina band mask in an earlier Don Post Studios ad, I do have to say that I would go out trick-or-treating as Admiral Ackbar in a heartbeat…

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!

    Josh – Lol, yeah. I wonder how many people invested in a full body’s worth of fake fur to complete the ensemble…

    Man, now I just don’t what to be for Halloween. Gizmo, or gizmo with actual fur.
