So… after another year passing us by again its now up to the ‘8’ figure for online time here…
What can we say we have seen develop as fans this year then?!?
New Merchandise… Masks, figures..
Well we had the NEW Fade in and Out mask, and although not a new type we did also see the Metallic GhostFace masks appear again, in the Blue, Green, and Purple types once again… Looks like the Red has gone for good.
We also got the NEW NECA figures, and also Funko pop vinyl types are now online too..
Events in 2014..
Back in May GhostFace fan Dean Maynard arranged and hosted a Ghost hunt event for Charity, i was asked to be GhostFace for the night which involved me running around as him scaring the guests for the first two hours before the Ghost hunt went back to normal format, (really trying to see if any spirits/ghosts were about) …
Needless to say the night was successful.. and also RJ Torbert had provided Signed masks and Books for auction… at that time the amount raised was the highest made…
In October (Halloween night) we had the same again, with many of the guests being women it was paradise for me as a Scarer…because women SCREAM more than men.. I was GhostFace again, and this time joined by a mate who was GhostFace most the time in my ‘Arnold Scream’ fan films, now and again he would change mask and become Michael Myers, he even managed to really scare Dean himself.. among others.. again though, another good night.. all for charity, sadly the Gold hooded Flesh coloured mask didn’t sell in the online auction… it was returned to RJ at Fun World, so maybe it will be up for grabs again in future, depending whats going on that is..
MTV Series – Progress…
Well this year has also seen a bit more progress on the long gestating SCREAM TV Series.. firstly announcing possible cast and audition clips, and then stills from supposed shooting, and then the bad news.. that GhostFace wasn’t to be involved, at least from the start.. with a possibility of an appearance in the future, maybe..
And then… the even worse news.. the fact that MTV want to have their own ‘Evolved’ version of the mask, which could be good or bad, but as i say in the other news post, its not a good thing in my opinion.. again also i repeat.. Time will tell!
Future of the site
Well i say it almost every time i do these yearly anniversary posts i think.. that being that as long as the stats keep the same telling me that the visitors are still viewing the site then ill keep it online, it seems the mostly viewed pages are the main index, this news page and the masks page.. i keep in touch with RJ Torbert on a regular basis and plan to keep that the same as always.. Content will be added to in the new year with details of the newer figures… i also hope to get some more info off superfan Nate Ragon on masks and his collection and maybe possibly some info on mask mods as used in the SCREAM movies..
While the page is limited on info compared to the popular ‘masks’ page, it does now contain links to a reliable site that does many a GhostFace item, reasonable shipping, and overall good prices compared to many other sites that seem to charge more for some things.. also the older links previously on the costumes page were from an affiliate account from BuyCostumes.. in which i never ever got NOTHING out of it.. so off those links went.. plus half the links in recent time either went to a product that was now discontinued, or to a page saying the link no longer worked.. As of now, ALL the links work and take you to the products pictured..
For now, from me.. as the date is now December 1st.. i say MERRY CHRISTMAS.. have a good NEW YEAR..
See you soon.
