The Calendar Reissues, how time flies!
« on: January 31, 2019, 05:36:13 PM »


It's been twenty years since this legendary mask series was in production at Don Post Studios. I'll never forget the thrill of acquiring a set of my own
although it didn't happen for me until well into year 2000. Which ones do you have? How do you think they compare to the original versions from 1966?
If you have pictures, post them all!

Easier to list the ones I don't have.

1. Mad Doctor
2. Metaluna Mutant
3.-5. Creature, Wolfman and Mummy versions B (I believe)

I only own the Phantom of the Opera reissue. Painted by Dr. Lady.

That Lugosi is magnificent. I Love the paint apps and the eyes. Killer.

The only calendar mask I've been able to afford is the Mad Doctor reissue (center). I also have a 1996 Don Post Full Moon (right) which I believe was adapted from the Wolfman B sculpt. I've re-furred the Full Moon mask, because it was deteriorating.


Doh!

Stupidly, I passed on these when they first came out. At the time, I was looking for a Wolf Man mask as a Halloween costume and found this version in the store -- but when the clerk told me it was more of a display piece and too small to be worn, I put it back on the shelf.

Still kicking myself.
