A couple of new masks.

Postby Colbster » Wed May 30, 2012 9:59 pm

I had a great week of mask hunting last week. I found an original vinyl DPS 1967/1976 "Skull" in an old costume shop last Wednesday and I bought it for $45, I love this mask and it's my very first mask related to "HalloweeN III". The shop owner was not familiar of its association with the movie. Some of its original paint had faded away but it's in such a great shape. The next score that came in on last Friday is an original DPS 1986 "The Mask" still tagged, this copy came from an inventory leftover of an old costume shop in Springfield, MO that had been closed for many years. The purchasers of the shop's contents had no idea that it was supposed to be a Michael Myers mask so I bought it for only $9.99. :wink:

Congrats on some fine masks, Colby! Nothing beats a DPS Skull...well, maybe a '75 Kirk! :P

Thanks for sharing.

Saw these on Facebook. Great scores.

Pity about the crease on "The Mask" (when I read that the seller folded the mask I wanted to crap...despite the great price of course, still who ships that way?).

Any way to get the crease out? Hair Dryer on low?

Thank you Leo, Mark, Dean, squidboy, Marcus, and Anthony! Much appreciated for the comments.

Maybe one day, Mark... Heh! Just gotta keep digging...

squidboy, yeah it was folded in half inside the package and ABSOLUTELY NO mask should have been shipped in that way. It actually looks worse when it's not stuffed, being stuffed to the max really helps it to keep its shape but I couldn't stuff out the crease. I have heard of the hair dryer method but I have never tried it, I always feared that it would heat up my mask too much and melt it... LOL. I'm planning to get it foam-filled so hopefully that will smooth out the crease, I appreciate the advice. :D

I sure will share some pictures after I get it foam-filled. :wink:

Leo, text me anytime! I'm not as busy anymore. :rock:

Hey Colby isn't the hair dryer method just for vinyl? since vinyl is a type of plastic it softens up and allows you to manipulate it to get out any imperfections. I could be wrong but i thought it was just for vinyl :)

I've had relative success with it with a CS mask
