Here we go, it’s been a short while since an update has come but i can now finally show fans what 2018 GhostFace masks i have, as in available via my site..
Video below will explain it all..
Well, here we are again.. already its halfway through 2018! And although we GhostFace fans always look forward to Halloween we do have some items that come out earlier with regards to new merchandise, although this time there is good and bad news!
Cavity Colors has been producing GhostFace enamel pins under license for a while now, we had the box set of 5 pins to start us off, followed by a Halloween themed ‘GhostFace Carver’ pin months later, and now, well we had 2 pins released! This is where we get the good and bad news…
The good news! Well, the new pin DOES come in the standard White mask form! And they are still for sale as i type this out! Click the banner above and head to the Cavity Colors site to purchase one or two!
The BAD news… in making this latest pin variant it was decided that a RED ‘Blood Variant’ pin would also be made! BUT… it was limited to ONLY 50 PINS!
AND THEY SOLD OUT LITERALLY WITHIN SECONDS! AND SADLY THERE WILL BE NO MORE!
Hello again… Time goes so quick it seems.. it doesn’t feel like it will be 7 years in April since Scream 4 was released, but it will be. And it also doesn’t feel like 11 years (well, just over) since i started this site.. And every year i put up a summary of the year gone by, and what we have to look forward to in the new year..
In very early 2017 we got the same as we always do get from Fun World/ RJ Torbert, which is normally (depending on show dates) in January in New Orleans, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Fun World always get the biggest booth there and we always see pictures from RJ showing different stages of the booth being built up and then the products being added.. in last years post there were pictures as always yet not a lot of people (including myself) noticed a Devil Face mask sitting to the side of an illuminated Fun World Logo panel.. soon enough another fan who was there ‘Sam Jones’ got some pictures and confirmed what was displayed in the Fun World booth for GhostFace items..(Skele-Face, Devil Face), also including the EU Stamped GhostFace mask which is sadly rarer to find now.. See LINK HERE for original post.
A little later in February we saw more images via Fun worlds website showing the NEW Skele-Face and Devil Face costumes, but at this time we didn’t all know if a White ‘Hard PU Plastic’ GhostFace existed…
We also saw in pictures via MadAboutHorror website, (who attended a Palmers Agencies show in the uk) that a Red Shroud Devil Face mask had been made, yet this was just a couple of Producton samples that Fun World had made, and they only released the normal Black Shroud type for retail.
A little later in February details were released about an accident RJ and his wife had been involved in back in late 2013.. and also he revealed to us something that would be included in his third novel, which was an ‘event’ that actually happened to Wes Craven, Wes had shared the story with RJ and told him to maybe use it for his next book, Details are still unknown in full to the fans, but RJ believes that this is a last gift to fans from Wes, hence why Wes had shared the info..
In this month we got some news that Aaron Crawford who owns the company ‘Cavity Colors‘ were releasing a new set of Enamel GhostFace pins, the final product was very nice and came in a box set of 5 pins, one that glowed in the dark, a STAB green mask with a ‘Stabbing action’ and 3 other types, which were the Bleeding mask, the Silver Chrome 25th Anniversary mask, and the ‘Whassup’ mask type from Scary Movie.. Only 500 box sets were made!
In this month i finally got a short video made showing fans how they could get scuffs and black marks from GhostFace Ultra White masks..
August, September, October, and into 2018..
As soon as August got underway we had masks already going out for sale in the USA, this started off with fans (who were lucky in some cases, as many dont have a Savers or Value Village close-by) finding Metallic GhostFace masks, the same colours as last year, Green, Purple and Blue, but, the Green had changed its tone, now we had a much brighter, almost STAB-Like Green to find, as the Green in previous years had been quite dark and almost looks Black in some lights..
So after fans had been out and about looking for Metallics some had also then started to come across the NEW Devil Face and Skele-Face types, as well as the Hard PU Plastic White GhostFace masks, but again not every fan found it easy to locate some types, in the USA fans struggled to find a Devil Face at all, and it seemed that the UK finally had an advantage for once! Palmers Agencies had ordered Devil Face and gave me a small list of Shops and Websites who had ordered them, in the early stages Websites would sell out overnight and fans would be happy at having all 3 new Plastic masks in their collections.. but with these new masks types being ordered as a selection it lowered the amount of types in each box, most retailers had only order 1 or 2 boxes, which consisted of 2 x Devil Face, 2 x Skele-Face, and 8 x GhostFace, which automatically made the numbers lower on retailers stock of the Devil and Skele Face… After many phone calls and talking again to Palmers Agencies i managed to find more Devil Face masks, (Which seemed to become the most sought after) and i bought as many as i could find, with the intention of letting USA fans buy them from me at uk Retail cost, with ‘Tracked and Signed’ postage added on, many fans took advantage of this and ended up with a Devil Face being added to their collections.. something i had never done on my site before..
Also during the time of Halloween approaching many rare masks seemed to pop up on ebay, including a Pink Fantastic, a Pink FEARSOME! , and many White Fantastics and Fearsomes, also a Production Mask with LOA popped up and was relisted a couple of times, but eventually found a new home…
Later into October we got news of two other things happening, one was the fact that the GhostFace mask WOULD BE returning in Series 3 of the TV Series, which wrapped filming on November 11th…
MTV also put a website online in which fans could share pictures of themselves as GhostFace! SEE HERE!
I also did a couple more ‘firsts’ last Halloween, in the form of Video reviews, one talking about the Latex EU stamped masks and why they are becoming rarer, also the Devil Face and PU Plastic GhostFace get reviewed, and another video covers the Skele-Face mask (as i had not got one at the time of the first video reviews) and also mentions Frank McGovern who was behind the Designs of the GhostFace Zombie, GhostFace Scarecrow, and the Devil Face, and of course, the Skele-Face! See Recent news posts for those!
Well, as far as the site goes, there will be more to come here, it was at the end of November last year in which we reached the 11 year anniversary, and ever since early June 2016 this site has been powered by WordPress, which makes it a lot easier to update and customise, i also noticed it shows a lot more in search results too..
With the expo show coming up again very soon (January 12-15) in New Orleans we should hopefully get a small preview of what may be added to the GhostFace range again, i hope! If anything!
I HAVE been told that the Devil Face and Skele-Face and also the white ‘Hard PU Plastic’ GhostFace will be returning this year, and i have also heard a whisper that Palmers Agencies ‘may’ be getting some Metallic’s this year! Which will be a first’ in a long time! Last time i knew of Metallic’s being for sale in the UK was around 2003!! Time will tell though!
For now though, Dont do Drugs, Dont Have Sex, and Dont ever say ‘You’ll be right back’!
Keep an eye out for the expo show pictures coming very soon… and if you are going to the event then PLEASE get some pictures of GhostFace for us!
Hello again, as of late, we have seen the new introductions of the ‘PU Plastic’ Masks, these being in styles of GhostFace, Skele-Face, and of course, Devil Face! As time has passed many fans now have these masks, but some (Mainly in the USA) have been struggling to find the Devil Face, to say the least… i personally have managed to get hold of 24 Devil Face masks, but i will let the video below do the rest for me…
Hello again… Here today we just have a new video showing the Devil Face mask and also a White GhostFace mask off the same mask mold.. Basically we see the New Devil Face and White PU Plastic masks are off the same molds as the 25th Silver Chrome Anniversary Masks… also talked about is the EU Stamp Mask, as its getting harder and harder to find now… I will let the video do the rest… see below..
Skele-Face Review… on receiving the new Skele-Face i decided to review that too… See below……
Hello, today i have a ‘Help video’ i have wanted to get made for a while, basically this will show fans a small but effective trick i discovered when trying an Eraser on a mask a while ago… ill let the video explain fully below….
Well, here we are again. this time closer to the awaited date… Yes, the GhostFace Enamel pins are close.. May the 18th is the official day you can order your box set. Types include, a Bleeding mask, a STAB – Motion green mask, a glow mask, and a Silver chrome mask, and a GhostFace spoof’ mask as seen in Scary Movie… So many variants there…
During the last couple of months i have had more contact and also contact with a chap called Aaron, Who’s Aaron? … Well he is the man that runs the Cavity Colors website, and recently he has personally worked with RJ Torbert, i was put in touch with him by RJ and then it went from there.. i interviewed him in relation to these new pins, and what was said after that is below… Enjoy!
WHAT prompted you to do the GHOST FACE item ?
GHOST FACE is a cultural icon, not only in horror, but in the world of pop culture in general. Besides the fame attached to it because it’s adorned by the killers in the SCREAM franchise, it’s one of the most haunting Halloween masks to exist, and it strikes a nostalgic chord with myself and many many others. I remember trick or treating as a kid in the 90’s, and seeing so many people running around in full GHOST FACE attire. Hell, I even did it one year. It just brings back memories.
How has it been working with FUN WORLD, and I assume you worked with R.J. how was that experience?
It’s been great! R.J. is very responsive and open to our concepts. We understand how iconic the image of GHOST FACE is, so we wanted to make sure we captured that in our pin designs. We wanted to create very straight-forward, classy pin designs that could be worn by practically anyone who loves the Icon of Halloween® :
How close did you work with him ?
He handles all things GHOST FACE, so he’s been involved every step of the way. We didn’t have to make too many changes along the way, just some minor things. I think those suggestions made them look even better in the long run, so we’re pretty damn happy with all the pins and the packaging.
WHERE do you plan on selling the goods ?
Exclusively on our site, CAVITYCOLORS.COM
Will there be ‘Collector editions’?
The “COLLECTORS BOX” contains 5 pins attached to a backing card, and placed inside a high quality jewelry box with the GHOST FACE logo printed in Metallic on top. You’ll only be able to own the exclusive Slider Stab pin, the Metallic Metal pin, and the infamous SPOOF face by purchasing the collectors box. Our plan is to also release other color variants outside of the box later in this summer, and into the Fall.
What are your goals with this and where do you plan on selling these?
We went into this hoping to create the ultimate collectible enamel pins for GHOST FACE fans and pin collectors alike, while also keep them classy and clean enough to wear on a dinner date, or a horror convention 🙂
We wanted them to appeal to everyone, not just horror fans. GHOST FACE is so universal, so we didn’t want it to feel too much like another horror pin. We think fans of the mask and collectors will dig em!
Where are they being made?
Our manufacturing details are top secret. Mostly outerspace.
Do you have any images to share? (Can GhostFace.co.uk have the honor of showing them first? , as long as RJ says its ok)
I’d like to keep the actual images under wraps until a little bit closer to the release date, which is most likely end of April / early May. We can hit it full force with promotion around that time.
How did you get started in this business?
Back in the early 2000’s, during the hayday of Myspace, I was designing merchandise for a lot of bands in the heavy metal / hardcore genre, and just eventually got burnt out designing stuff for other people, and chasing down payments for the same recycled T-shirt design ideas over and over again. I decided to create my own shirt designs and sell them to friends locally and online. From there, it kinda of grew from making 20 shirts, to 50 shirts, to now hundreds. We have customers from all over the world. Australia, United Kingdom, Japan, etc. It’s pretty insane. Within the past 2 years, we’ve expanded into acquiring licenses to create official merchandise for some of our favorite films, such as EVIL DEAD 2, THE FOG, RE-ANIMATOR, NIGHTBREED, and more. We’re also creating official products for icons like ROB ZOMBIE, and even a line of products for ELVIRA. Lot’s of big stuff on the horizon!
We’ve been a full time, family owned brand since 2012.
Any other future projects?
We’re already in talks with R.J. about doing some other official, never before seen GHOST FACE items. Fingers crossed! I think they’ll be awesome!
Well, there we go, from the man himself, Aaron Crawford.. of Cavity Colors… Fans can head over to their site by clicking the Small banner above or the larger image below.
Well, finally i can give all the UK fans the same news as the USA fans have had for a couple of weeks…. The Silver GhostFace Masks are now IN STOCK on the MadboutHorror.co.uk Website!!
After a long struggle of trying to obtain these the UK fans can now finally see their Pre-Order paying off… Literally!! If you have Pre-Ordered one from them, then you may have to check your inbox for a notification of payment being due, in which they will then send your brand new Anniversary mask to you ASAP.. (They are fast with postage too!!) … Even if you are a USA fan, or a fan in another country you can still contact them about purchasing one and whether they will ship a mask to you if you are in a far far away land..(Bear in mind that in some cases the postage may cost more than the actual mask!)
Click the Banner above for the listing on their site!
Well, as Halloween nears again fans have been commenting about the new ’25 Year GhostFace mask’.. as in, WHERE IS IT??? WHERE IS IT BEING SOLD?! I cant find it on Costume sites!!
Well, it seems that the fact of the mask being more of a Collector’s Piece has put off some retailers, which is daft really because with it being made ONLY in 2016 you would think that fans would be looking for this all over the place, but the normal sellers actually DONT have it ordered.. which has made some fans worry about HOW and WHERE they can get it.. Well, dont worry, because theres some Answers here..
So, where or how can fans in different countries obtain a mask? … See Below..
USA fans can find the Masks in…
Savers (Also Metallics will be in there)
And also contact ‘ Erwin Distributing ‘ Who may be able to tell you more info
Palmer Agencies based in Belfast are the main UK Distributor, Info could be gotten from them maybe.
Places I KNOW THAT WILL have them are…
MadaboutHorror.co.uk (Linked on the ‘Links’ and ‘Costumes’ Page here)
On the costumes pages you will see images that link to ALL Scream/GhostFace items they sell.. (Always being added to)
The ‘Costumes’ page DOES HAVE an image link there to PRE ORDER the Silver 25 Year Mask (Deposit of £5 Required)
MadaboutHorror.co.uk WILL SHIP TO USA FANS IF NEED BE… But you have to take into account that in some cases the postage may cost more than the mask purchase itself !
Karnival House Costumes.. (Also linked to on the same pages, although NO PRE ORDER links are on the site over there yet??)
Any Australian Fans?
Well you can find out more info on the availability of the Silver mask via CostumeBox Website im told.
(There is NO item listed as of yet, but i suggest to contact them anyway and see what info they have)
I recently made a quick video below.. that covers this topic/article
UPDATE: Many fans have been to ‘Savers/Value Village’ Stores and NOT SEEN the Silver Chrome mask displayed… I have been told to advise fans to ASK FOR THE MASK, as it may not be out on display yet..
I STRONGLY advise that you CALL the nearest store to you first and save yourself the fuel if the Silver Masks are not there for whatever reason.. Question it first.. Then go in if you get the answer you want.
Also.. Regarding Goodwill’ Stores… Some fans tell me that their ‘Goodwill’ is actually a THRIFT STORE.. so will they have the masks? Answer: Not sure.. all i can advise is to maybe contact your local store first and ask if that mask is on the way in to the stores stock, or even out on display somewhere..
When i first put this article up some fans questioned about ‘Goodwill’ stores having the Silver masks, because they thought the store only sold donated items, i then contacted RJ Torbert and he told me that the store chain had been purchasing many a Fun World product for years… so there you have it.. NOT only a store that sells donated items only.. they do sell NEW merchandise too.
