Don't care for the CREATURE PEOPLE one, but I'll take the other, as well as the Collegeville CFTBL costume.

Ahhhhh, this one from 1980:

Here's a pic of a Collegeville Herman Halloween costume:



And here's the mask anyway of his longtime adversary Katnip:



Herman and Katnip starred in many cartoons but were rarely the cover features of any Harvey comic mags. Here are a couple from my collection though:

Here's a Collegeville costume from the 1960's merely labelled "Monster" on the box albeit it closely resembles the Phantom of the Opera:

The Collegeville Buzzy the Crow costume was quite nice:



Hmmmmm. It seems that the very cool Retrocrush site is no more. I shrewdly saved the picture of the Buzzy costume though!



And here are a couple of pictures of Buzzy for comparison's sake:

Despite no movie appearances, the Shock Monster still occupies a very special place within the hearts of monster kids everywhere. It was magazine and comic ads for a Shock Monster mask back in the 1960's that made the Shock Monster's handsome visage among the most iconic in all of monsterdom:



Here are some great pictures of the Collegeville Shock Monster costume:

NOTE: Whoops! I guess the "Collegeville" costume was just a fantasy creation.

Hep, you've reposted this at least a couple of times over the years. Are you unaware that this is a fantasty creation and that there is no mass produced Shock Monster children's Halloween costume?

Ben Cooper copied the Topstone design to a degree for their 1966 young adult Phantom of the Opera and the youth size Blackbeard the Monster, but to my knowledge, that's as close as any mass manufaturer ever came.

A fantasy creation?!!! Box and all? Clearly so well done then that I was completely fooled.

But if you saw my previous post in the Vintage Toys forum back in May 2018, why did you not point my mistake out to me then? I do put quite a bit of effort into gathering up information for my posts but I'm not infallible. Sometimes I mess up the facts. So please tell me when you see that I've gotten the facts wrong before the misinformation is spread by myself or others.
