Title: Looking for old Wolfman mask
Post by: Barlow on October 29, 2019, 03:11:57 PM
I've been trying to find a Wolfman mask I bought around 1977 at Izzy Rizzy's Trick Shop in Chicago. I believe it was the one shown in this comic ad:

Is the one advertised the same as this one?

I remember mine being somewhat rounder and heavier, but it does look exactly like it.

I believe this is a photo of that Don Post mask in the ad.

Well, this is confusing. Your ad shows 150 line half-masks plus the 800 line Universal "Wolfman" shown in Mike Scott's ad. Your portraits show the later 800 line "Werewolf". That 1976-'77 time period is when Post Studios switched from one version to the next. The funny thing is I have a 150 line Werewolf that I'd gladly sell you but it's probably not what you're seeking.

What do you think one of those 150 Creature masks would go for?

The pics I posted all seem a bit more narrow than the one I remember having, but the teeth, design and colors are how I remember them. What's the difference between 150 and 800 line? No idea what that means (blushing).

The 150 line were face masks, sized for children. The 800 line were full-overhead and sized to fit adults. Get to know this website, Barlow. It's been a great help to me:

I'm just as confused-- I'm looking for this one;

Is that the 150?
