Verne  Langdon added the "slime" to the hair on the calender mask because he figured with all the time the Monster spent in dungeons he'd be a little moldy.
None of the "calender" masks had production paintjobs. Verne had custom painted those copies of the masks and then took pictures of them with the intent to hang them up on his wall. Someone else saw them, said they would make a cool calender, and the monster calender was born!
And what happened to those cool custom painted masks from the photos? They were tossed back in with the production masks to fill orders, so a couple people somewhere got some cool masks back in the day. LOL

Thanks for the info on them!  I'm always learning new folklore about those crazy Don Post days of old.  Man, it would be great to have those calendar copies.

Very cool mask Andy, I know you've had that blank for some time now so I am glad that you finally got it fixed up the way you wanted.  It looks great.  As far as the Calendar masks (as in masks that were used in the photos) I know that the Mutant ended up with Forry then was sold and has since been repainted dark blue!?!

Thanks Josh.  If it wasn't for my search for this mask, I never would have started collecting masks in the first place!  That led me to find the new Topstone pulls, and all the Famous Monsters masks I wanted as a kid.  Pretty soon, my collection was looking more like a mask collection than anything else, so I've scaled back a bit on the masks.  I'm trying to limit myself to Famous Monsters advertised masks, but there are those amazing masks out there that still tempt me - like the Tony Pitocco masks, the Chuck Jarman Frankenstein, the VXX-FX masks...

Thanks all for the info on the slime!

I really like that "smooth" Strange mask.

So the whereabouts of the Mutant mask are known for sure?  That's pretty cool news, really.  I thought they were all long gone.

Well I heard from a guy who heard it from a guy.  you know how that goes.  So I would not say for sure, but the pick I saw in Forrys collection looked like the Calendar mask and certainly supported the story.  I have no way of confirming the part about the mask being sold then repainted, I just heard that part.

Yes, the head at FJA's olde Ackermansion was the one pictured in the calender, which I believe was an original screen-used prop head torn off a costume used in THIS ISLAND EARTH.

Below (L) is an original 1960s production Mutant (first version). Note the bile green and pink paint(!) On the right is a first edition 60s Wolfman -recast- painted and haired in the 1980s. I love this particular Wolfman to bites...er...bits.

That mask has always been my favorite as well...







There is also the much coveted "smooth" Glenn taken from the lifecast and headpiece.






Latex Creep,
Here's my smooth GS Frank:

Who did the finish work on your masks?  They look great, too.

Thanks!

Well, I have used quite a few artists on my mask refinishing.

The Calendar Glenn was painted by the Mask Doctor (Kelly Mann) and the smoothie was painted by Don Post veteran employee Rob Tharp and haired by Dante Renta.

I've actually started to paint a few myself.

Here is a DP Nosferatu I painted...




And, here is a little Topstone facemask that I painted...

That Nosferatu is cool!  Your paint work gives it a real evil look.  Great job.  Is that Klaris from Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy?  John Goodwin is a great guy and one helluva talent.  I have a Monster on Campus foam latex face appliance that he did for a Wonderfest skit in my collection.
