I love vintage Halloween masks. A lot. And, like most things I get interested in, I fixate on collecting certain ones from certain periods.
Right now, I’m way into 1960s masks though I really want a Toxie mask that I stupidly didn’t buy on Etsy when I first saw it. I search Etsy fairly frequently for masks since they’re usually pretty reasonably priced and it isn’t as defeating as searching the monster that is Ebay.
I found this werewolf mask at an antique shop by my house. Lucky for me, no one else wanted it which blows my mind! It’s one of my favorites.
I found a couple of these (below left) on Etsy, but the Frankenstein and saber tooth cat (at least that’s my interpretation of it!) I scored at a musty outdoor junk shop. They were rotting away just waiting for me to shell out six bucks to take them to their forever home.
Not a mask, this is my real face. And it’s vintage now since I turn 30 this week. UGHHH.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ONE OF THE LOVELIEST COLLECTORS WE KNOW!
