Today is the first day in a series of posts featuring the odd ball masks found within the pages of the 83-84 Morris Costumes Mask catalog. The first two pages of the catalog featured Morris exclusive masks under the title of “Fantasie Masks” and “Fantasie Faces”.

I haven’t a clue who the artist was that created the Hollywood Fantasie Masks, but I am a big fan of the “Grim Reaper”, “Howler”, and “Mad Monk”. They have a classic early 80’s feel and a touch of Be Something Studios. If you have any information on these, please feel free to post a comment.

The Fantasie Faces are a different type of “mask” altogether. These latex prosthetics are described as a “totally new concept”. While not quite made of the same material, I imagine these were very similar in concept to Imagineering’s FACE masks.
