Awesome collection!
You need a Collegeville Suckerman costume!




I do indeed.

Wow, never seen a Suckerman costume!  I had a couple of them toys when I was younger but never knew they made a Halloween costume for it.
Long live the UMA!

YOU GUYS SHOULD JOIN OUR NEW COLLEGEVILLE MASK COLLECTORS PAGE ON FACEBOOK. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Collegeville-mask-collectors/229579747092005


1. Are you therefore a Collegeville loyalist and an enemy of Ben Cooper? If so why?

2. What is this Facebook organization of which you speak?

I had a tiger costume that came from Woolworth's sometime around 1959, 1960 or 1961. I remember wearing to school for a Halloween party and again in our class play but don't remember the year or if it came with a mask. It might've been Collegeville or Ben Cooper or some other manufacturer ..

I am fuzzy about the details of the costume and even the year that it was purchased .. I do remember that my one line in the class play was "No hunting in the nursery at night?"

I now usually celebrate Halloween as a hippie ..  ;D

Loyalist?  :laugh: LOL that's actually funny. No I like both Collegevile and Ben Cooper, if you read what the FB page says it states for everyone who collects Collegeville and Ben Cooper costumes, actually the site is for anyone who collects these type costumes. Why in the world would you think I am a enemy of Ben Cooper? I don't recall EVER saying or even hinting that I am.  As far as the facebook organization you're asking about...I don't really know what you're asking about. It's just a fan page. LOL  :laugh:

I don't think that was the mask .. I could be wrong as it was long ago and I wore the mask and didn't really look at it too much ..  :o

Have you guys seen Brechtbug's mask pics on flickr?  Here's the link: Scroll down to see the amazing batch of mask images he's collected.

Darn near 80 pics featuring multiple masks like this: 


Frankenstein Monster Masks 0546 by Brechtbug, on Flickr

I borrowed some of these (with his OK) to print out as Halloween window decorations -- shown in another thread.....

Hmmm... That IS the URL.  Don't know why it isn't working.  Just search for Brechtbug on flickr and go to page three of his sets --  it's "Halloween Costumes Vintage Photos.". I think they are also posted in the UMA flickr group.

That Suckerman is awesome.  I want one!

And I love that Mummy. It had to have been inspired by the Haunted Glow Head model kit.
