The UMA Museum display at Maskfest 2012 was one of the true highlights of the event. Once again, the Universal Monster Army put together an absolute stunner!

While photos don’t really do the experience justice, I tried to document the museum display from case to case. The first case featured the four Ellis Burman Sr. Masks which were found earlier this year and currently reside in the collection of the Yellow Phantom along with a collection of vintage Don Post Studios Planet of the Apes masks…

A calendar style DPS Lugosi Dracula mask with a gorgeous finish was on display next…
