Trick Or Treat Studios

I love checking in on Trick or Treat Studios. Their designs are extremely Old School, more so than other mask makers I've seen. And their prices are pretty sweet as well.





Here's to the rubber mask wearers.

Excited to show off their rubber masks. Breathing through a tiny opening. Listening to muffled sounds. Looking through small eye holes (and always looking down to make sure they aren't about to walk over anything or anyone). Feeling like they ARE that monster. I've been there. You really DO feel like someone/something else when you're inside a latex mask. And in a weird way it's sorta like being all alone, and observing Halloween night through someone else's eyes.

So here's to the rubber mask wearers. Cheers.

Rot, I've gotta ask: which is YOUR favorite mask of this bunch?

Rot said...

The Devil.

Something about him says he could be used on a prop...or as a mask...or even as a decoration in the house.

Old School fun.

Rot said...

And I really love the last one...

The Devil is a partial mask..the last is a full over the head deal.

Which is yours?

HA! i have the one third down - the ghastly ghoul. it's wonderful.

I constantly look down when wearing my mask, i walked into the cat once or twice. Trick or treat studios really do make awesome masks. i like the devil one as well. if i got another it would probably be SHOCK though.

I myself am partial to the second one...it's kinda of a cross between Frankenstein and the Mummy (watching the old Hammer films on Turner Classic Movies this month so waxing nostalgic - oops showing my age)

You gotta love the old "Shock Monster" tribute... now if they'd only get around to reinventing the Topstone Ghoul, I'd be set. Heh heh

My favorite would have to be the "Water Zombie" mask. For some reason, I keep wanting to use the mask for a zombie gunslinger prop. I guess I just think that it would look cool in a worn-out cowboy hat. Weird. :)

Totally digging the Frankenstein's Monster mask. Would buy that in a heartbeat....

Your post reminded me of those "Real American Heroes" Budweiser commercials.
"Mr. Halloween-Latex-Mask-Wearing-Guuuuuy"... No?

Disappointed to find out Frankenstein's Monster is really Radioactive Zombie Swamp guy. :( Oh well...

The devil mask is good - he looks like Salvador Dali.

I made myself a 7-foot tall devil costume about fifteen years ago for a company haunt I used to do - could barely see out of it and I had to have a friend lead me around, but totally worth it for the scares - the devil scares the hell out of people!

I would buy the Ghastly Ghoul mask - those prices are pretty good!

I like all of them, but I can't get any. My sisters deathly allergic to latex rubber :(

I hear ya, I love the old school vibe of these masks.

I picked up the Ghastly Ghoul earlier this summer and I love it! Thick enough to hold it's shape and the paint job is exactly like the photos on the site.

The Radioactive Zombie is next on my list!
