GhostFace® – The Icon Of Halloween® – Mask Info and History

Welcome to the story of the mask commonly known today as “GhostFace®”, this mask was first designed and created by Alan Geller of Fun World as he also explain’s in the recent documentary ‘Still Screaming’ by Anthony Masi. It was known at first as the “Peanut eyed Ghost” by many and also at one point ‘The Weeping Ghost’ but remained unnamed in its first line of masks it was featured in which was “Fantastic Faces”. The mask was not easily designed, I got a hold of RJ Torbert and he indicated that he told a true story involving the naming of the mask that will be in the documentary “Still Screaming” that is considered to be very funny.
With regards of GhostFace® getting onto the big screen, it wasn’t until 1995 that the mask was found by Marianne Maddalena who was with Wes Craven while scouting for locations in an old house of a mask collector that had sadly died, he liked the idea that the mask could be bought anywhere at any variety store, meaning anyone could be the killer in what was at the time his upcoming movie “Scream”. Since the movies release many versions of the mask and costumes now exist, GhostFace® has become a VERY popular character/icon in regards to many fans of him and the films.

Below we have most versions of the mask listed that have been released since GhostFace® got a cult following. The mask is still hugely popular today!
The man that is in charge of all things “GhostFace®” today is RJ Torbert and he’s just as passionate about GhostFace® as the fans.

rjmanofghostfaceFor 20 years RJ was at the Woolworth Company, and was the Senior Buyer of Toys when he left in 1996. He joined Fun World shortly thereafter and has been with them ever since, his responsibilities include Director of Licensing and Product Development for Easter, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day.
He is also the man for ALL things GhostFace®, anything to do with the mask will go through him. RJ has been involved with every bit of negotiation with Miramax/Dimension/TWC concerning GhostFace® for the past 20 years almost.. and of course, many meetings with the new 2022 ‘SCREAM’ film.

RJ’s history with the mask is also important, he is the man that Trademarked the GhostFace® name in 1996 and he also officially baptized the mask name and image on June 21st 1999. A new Trademark was announced in Early 2011 which earned GhostFace® a worthy title of “The Icon Of Halloween®”, in 2012 it was approved and now fans will notice the ‘®’ on Mask tags and other Ghostface® merchandise.
During intensive meetings with Miramax for Motion Picture and Merchandising rights. Torbert insisted that a legitimate name be given to the mask. There was resistance at first but Torbert prevailed and came up with the name Ghost Face. His first thought was “Ghost in Pain” but decided that GHOST FACE sounded more like a noun instead of an adjective (GHOST IN PAIN) easier to refer to.

He filed all the necessary legal papers, for the trademark, and amended the original copyrights and GHOST FACE was born and worked into the merchandising plan as well as the motion picture. His reason behind the push was his belief in Wes Craven and felt a intellectual property would be born. And as we all know it was.
Today RJ stays very busy with his job and has many followers via Twitter where he takes time to update fans with cryptic messages and regularly has contests involving GhostFace® related items. Fans like him a lot and not many of us knew of him until mid 2010 when Scream 4 filming started and he contacted people and said hello and gave pointers to us about our sites.

Buy RJ Torberts Powers and Johnson NovelsWith RJ’s job being a busy one he cant always reply to every single person who contacts him, he is an important cog in Fun World’s clockwork, he has a lot of responsibility and his time can be very much stretched and involve long hours. If you dont know by now, RJ has wrote a novel recently that was released in early 2013. More info is on the page called ‘RJ’s Books’ (Linked in main menu)..
On June 21st 2016 RJ’s second book ‘No Mercy’ was released… You can buy either book by clicking the banner above.


Mask Types used in the Films.

Not everyone knows or sometimes even realize’s that the mask types differ in the films.. but they aren’t all the same mask in every scene of course. Masks are also altered by the art department to get them how Wes wants them to look, many alterations are made and thats why the store-bought masks will differ somehow to those we see in the final movie! The masks sold are not always the same, for example production run Deluxe masks were used in Scream 4, which although looking the same as the store sold Deluxe versions did actually differ from them, In all the films masks dont look the same because of being altered.

SCREAM – Fantastic Faces – KNB Mask

In the first movie two versions are used, the popular “Fantastic Faces” thats still sought after now and 28 years old, and the other version being the one made by KNB effects, just known simply by fans as the “KNB Mask”, Only 7 KNB types were made, and remember some were cut up!

What was this ‘KNB’ Mask then? .. Loyal fans WILL know of this type..

Wes had decided on a Fun World mask for the film, with time being limited and a deal not being ironed out to use the Fun World mask Wes had KNB Effects make a similar mask and even with that a deal had to be made and hammered out to make the use of the KNB mask legal with Fun World, On filming Himbrey’s and Casey’s scenes he wasn’t 100% happy with it and finally Fun World and the studio managed to strike a deal and the real one was used, although there wasn’t time to re-shoot Casey and Himbrey’s scenes so the KNB mask got an appearance after all. Only 7 masks existed of these and Nate Ragon owns a mask or two as well as Skip Crank!

Although many a fan out there have made replica’s since the KNB’s appearance back in 96, some are good, and some not so good. At the end of the day an Original is FAR better to own. It is known another fan has some good stuff from the first movie too. Mainly the remaining KNB’s i think..

Also, despite many people believing that the ‘KNB’ mask was only used in Principal Himbrey’s Death scene and Casey Becker’s scene you can also see it appear right after Sidney and Tatum are talking about Cotton on Tatum’s front porch, when the killer appears in the bushes a short distance away before the video store scene, Pause your DVD’s and Blu Rays and zoom in, it certainly looks like the KNB mask, also pause it in the store when Sidney and Tatum are shopping, after they walk off we see the killer again in the reflection of the fridge doors, again, that’s a KNB type!!!

SCREAM 2 – Fearsome Faces – Fearsome Faces (EU) Stamp, RDS = ‘Randy’s Death Scene’

In Scream 2 we also had two types used, both from the “Fearsome Faces” line.. there are always many factories that made these all with different molds, and in Scream 2 we had a regular Fearsome type and also a Fearsome Faces ‘EU’ type, noticeable differences are easily seen when looking at the images here.
Many a fan will mention and know what an ‘RDS’ mask is, for those who still wonder.. it means ‘Randy’s Death Scene’.. Ghostface had an RDS mask on when in the van driving the knife in and out of poor old Randy.
The ‘RDS’ mask as its nicknamed can also be seen scattered around on various kids on the cinema scene at the start of the film also… one being just a few seats to the left of Maureen and the killer!

In REAL terms the nicknamed ‘RDS’ mask is basically a Fearsome Faces mask with an ‘MK’ stamp, although some types have a more Squinty look…
(Despite the RDS being known as a Fearsome Faces mask, it did also appear with earlier ‘Fantastic Faces’ header tags on there, but are extremely rare! ).

SCREAM 3 – ‘ASIS’ Mask – GhostFace ‘Black & Red Tag’ (EU) Stamp

Scream 3 saw a newer line of masks known to fans as the “ASIS” tagged versions, just before the tags listed simply as “GhostFace®” which were the commonly seen Black and Red tag, Glow and Non Glow were available and although its still not 100% proved its thought that both types may had been sent to set.. we do know though that there wasn’t any previous line masks used. Fans sway more towards the “ASIS” mask being used in Scream 3 but when looking at the film and comparing screenshots both the ASIS and Black and Red GhostFace® tag types were used. Differences in mask are noticeable when pausing the film.
Many believe that the mask pictured on the left below is ONLY used in Cotton and Christine’s scenes at the films beginning, as a fan myself i believe it was used a bit more than just that, although the ‘ASIS’ mask looks almost the same, and the Re-shoots for Scream 3 did include the start of the film, many extras of Cotton and Christine’s scenes exist as DVD extras..

SCREAM 4 – (Production Run) Deluxe Masks – TD Masks, aka ‘Walgreens’ or ‘Re-Shoot’ mask

Scream 4 saw the main mask for GhostFace® being the Deluxe version, a Production run of masks were sent to set, also Zombie versions were included and Scarecrow types too, although we dont see the Zombie and Scarecrow it is said they were randomly placed on kids in the barn scene, (I have been reliably informed that the masks DO appear in the barn scene and if you look hard enough and ‘pause’ through the scene you can see them.) i have seen Zombie types online with COA’s on EBay now and again. All Deluxes had a New Dwarf type hood and shroud, and was more of a solid mask compared to its thinner Softer PVC made predecessors, The “Walgreens/Re-shoot” style mask has a thinner look on the downward shape of the mouth and eye differences, being slightly thinner than the Deluxe, also the back of the chin cuts off more than the Deluxe, giving the Walgreens its distinctive shape letting us identify it more easily. The more normal name for the mask isn’t in existence as such with this type, it can only be described as the ‘TD’ mold, seen previously way before Scream 4 was announced, yet since the movie has come and gone the mask is in more demand among fans.

In late January/Early February 2011 the ‘TD’ masks were sent for the Re-Shoots, these masks have been Nicknamed by fans as “Walgreens” or “Re-shoot” types! Again these are easily noticeable when looking at the images below, and quite easily noticed in the final film!

Movie used Masks.. Kindly allowed permission to show here by Nate Ragon. Thanks Nate!

Below we have various masks as used in the movies.. a ‘cut up’ KNB mask.. and even an Orange mask, which looks to be the Fluorescent Orange Fantastic Faces type..

Nate has been collecting for well over 10 years, below is just a little of his prize possessions.. Knowing that those masks were involved in filming makes them super rare.. Props and screen used items from the first film are harder to come by than any of the other films..

Below we have various masks as used in the movies, also there is the killers robe from Scream 3 where Roman is repeatedly shot by Dewey before getting shot in the head!

Also here are Masks as used in SCREAM, and Scream 3 and Scream 4, Wes personally signed the Scream 4 mask to Nate himself.. the purple colouring was where the mask was coloured in with black marker for a shadowing effect, over time the ink sets in and slowly goes purple.

The first line was “Fantastic Faces” and this was used in “Scream”Fantastic Faces Ghostface

” Fantastic Faces, originally a line of 4 masks, including what was nicknamed the ‘Peanut Eyed Ghost’ aka GhostFace!
Later on the line would have 5 masks, a new one was a grinning skeleton showing its teeth “

This was designed by Fun World in 1991 and had a “Stamp of Approval” by Alan and Stanley Geller for its first line of “Fantastic Faces” and it is this version that was finally used in “Scream” after a deal was reached by the Weinstein Company and Fun World, previously the studio and Fun World wasn’t able to get a deal sorted out in time, and the KNB effects crew made a similar version of the mask at first, Wes wanted Fun World’s version though, finally a deal was made and the mask was used.

White Versions
In the line of Fantastic faces through the years we also saw all the masks go through another phase of colour changing with the shrouds, at one time the masks were available as completely white variants, GhostFace, or the ‘Peanut eyed ghost’ was just one of those masks to have the full white shroud, with collectors today its not just versions sought after that were used in the movies, its also any other variant like the white versions that come up trumps too!

Each type had its own Header tag at first
Another Fact is in regards to the tags on Fantastic Faces masks that maybe unknown to newbies who are starting to gather up masks, the ‘Yellow Star’ tags are only for the regular Glow in the dark masks and the ones without the star were for the coloured masks, the only non glow Fantastic’s to fans knowledge were the hooded types.. so all three tags above are now explained as to which type masks they would carry on them. [ Info Credit: Zach C ]

Generation 1 and Generation 2′ Mask types? !!!!
In the masks early life we saw the first mold, this is what started off ‘The Peanut eyed Ghost’ in its creation, the mold was approximately 11.5 inches in length and had hand cut eyes, a big wide mouth, and indents in the bottom and also middle of the mouth, with lots of these masks the sides of the mouths would not be symmetrical, whilst this sounds like a flaw, it is what helped give the mask more character in its early existence, now a collectors item, and Collectors often refer to this Fantastic Faces type as a ‘Gen 1’ , or a ‘Generation 1’ mask.

Gen 2 – Generation 2 Mold
Over time the ONLY mold of the Generation 1 mask obviously got some use, sadly this use would take its toll on the mold and eventually a new mold was needed, it is believed that Fun World told sculptors to get the next mold as close to the first version as humanly possible, this was almost achieved too, as there was only a half inch difference overall, on looking at actual mask pictures or by comparing these Gen 1 and 2 masks either side its obvious to see the slight changes that define each type, the Gen 2 has slightly bigger eyes, and also seems to have a slightly less wider mouth at the top of the mouth area, also the nose differs too, whilst the Gen 1 nose is painted as an almost straight line at the bottom it was narrow at the peak on top, on the Gen 2 it is wider at its peak of the nose and also has a more noticeable curve on on the bottom of the nose going upwards into the bottom of the nose shape. The main half inch difference starts after the top of the eyes going down the mask, If you hold a tape measure from the top of the mask going downwards, you will see the 6 inch mark on a Gen1 just as you get near the very bottom of the nose, on a Gen2 you will see that 6 inch mark almost at the top of the nose!

Hand Cut eyes / Machine Cut eyes
As time went on we saw changes from the Gen 1 mold to the Gen 2 mold in many ways, and small ways too, one of these was a simple change in the way the eyes were cut out, in the past eye holes were manually cut out ( which must have taken ages!! ) and when the updated Gen 2 mold was in use we now had a machine doing the eye holes… so as each version of mask emerged over the years we got little changes over time, Machine cut eyes being one of these changes starting off in this Fantastic Faces line… and this also helps in the identifying of the type between collectors.

Identifying between the two types!
The main half inch difference isn’t noticeable overall unless you have a Gen1 and 2 mask side by side!
The main identifying factor in confirming which mask type you have will be more easily seen with a simple measurement, although most fans always look straight at the nose to see if the straight line paint job that features on the Gen1 is there, normally the curve of the Gen2 will help confirm for that type on its own too, but on occasions there are cases where the paint jobs differ and a Gen 2 may have a paint job on its nose just like a Gen 1 mask! Again, this is where it can be identified easier with the measurement of the overall mask length. Remember, 11.5 inches overall for a Gen 1 Mask, and 12 inches for a Gen 2 mask!
This measurement is correctly taken by putting the top end of the tape measure on the top of the mask mask edge at the back of the hood/shroud and by bringing the tape measure down the front of the mask, you will get the end measurement by seeing where the end of the tape goes to at the bottom of the mouth.

On some the yellow star is present saying “Glows in the dark”

Overall: The Fantastic faces mask is EXACTLY as its described, Fantastic! A favourite among many fans and sometimes preferred to current versions for its “untidy shape” and hand cut eyes. For a brief description i could say that we have a “Bony” looking surprised scary looking type of skull!

Eyes were never the same as today due to being hand cut out, the mouths were long and shiny black and quite flexible, the mask has a certain look about it that pleases many, the eyes are almost the same as the fearsome type, with each eye not being the same shape, the nose appears ever so slightly smaller and slightly further up past the mouth than other versions. Left eyes always look slightly more thinner than right eyes.

Original Measurements first put on this page were kindly sent to me by John C Gritton. Thanks John!
Information on differences between Gen1 and Gen2 types came from Fan Tim Dufresne, Thanks VERY Much Tim!

GhostFace Mask Generation 1 details

Fearsome Faces Fun World Mask Line
The next line was “Fearsome Faces” and this was used in “Scream 2”fearsomefaceslrg

After the Success of “Scream” we saw a Sequel come straight after, this time we had a slightly re-designed mask, in a named line called “Fearsome Faces”, this was the second line that our mask appeared in and had a Shroud version and a hooded version, it also had these types in the “Fantastic” line previously, this version had an indent in the chin and slightly different eyes, Glow versions were used in Scream 2 and are still sought after today. Normally with regards to Scream 2 the things that seem to pop up more regular than others items are the ‘Theater Robes’ which are actually quite plain compared to the GhostFace costumes bought in stores today.

” The ‘Fearsome’ line was the next line where GhostFace appeared, a slight change in mold is seen here, but not much overall difference compared to later versions “

Identifying Facts.

Item No. #9206 / Item no. #8550 (T Mask) #8919 (Hooded DLX Types)

Material: Soft PVC

Colours: White, Orange, Green, Pink

Overall Length: 31cm (From top of mask down to bottom of chin).

Stamp: Early versions had the usual “Fun World Div” very late versions of the mask had the normal “Easter Unlimited inc, Made in China” or the ‘HN’ mark on others as well as the two (MK) variants…

Shroud: Black Stretchy Material, Hooded types had a thick layer of material doubled up.

Smell: Vanilla Smell

Mouth indent: 13cm, Indent in bottom of mouth and noticeable “Crease” line in middle of mouth, with this type the mouth appears bigger of some angles, giving the mouth “Attitude” on some shots in the films. In some film scenes the mouth appears to curve more forwards than before. Whether that is how the mold is, or a movie modification im not sure..

Tags: Tags were Purple and Black with Greeney/Yellow font, a picture of the hooded type was on the right of the tag like with later Fantastic tags. These same types were nameless on the 97′ ASIS tag, with a greeny glowing mask on the right hand side, sometimes also seen on the fearsome ones too.

Overall: Like the Fantastic version this mask is still wanted by many a fan, its main identifiable feature is the eye difference, the right eye always has a straight diagonal line on either side of it, where as the left eye will be curved.

Other: An “EU” type Fearsome (amongst others) was also available at the time, this mask differed slightly, the eyes were spaced further apart from each other, this can be seen in the background of the opening scene in the cinema, also it has a Nickname of “RDS”, because it was used in ‘Randy’s Death Scene’..

Thanks to Joshie B for measurements! | Also Thanks to Zach Barton for Mouth Picture.

The next line was an un-named tag and this was used in “Scream 3”asis97lrg

” Not just this particular mask had this tag, late Fearsome masks also had this tag with the EU stamp, the tag itself was to help GhostFace separate from the older lines, before being baptized”

On speaking with RJ Torbert on this version of tag its now clear as to why it was nameless. In the process of going from Fantastic, then Fearsome in named lines the name “GhostFace®” was wanted next.

R.J. was in the process of having the GhostFace® name trademarked, and because it takes over a year to get government approvals on registrations, he did not want to have GhostFace® on Header Cards and Packaging until it was “Officially” documented as a registration.

So this tag stayed out there until all was official, over the years fans nicknamed this the “97′ Tag, or “ASIS” mask, simply for (As Seen in Scream). After this version we saw a new tag and named line for the mask, as below in the next section.

In the time that the tag existed there were many a version mask still appear and then reappear with a different mold, the picture here to the below right shows us how different some styles can be just with the smallest alterations.. Look at the eyes and mouth, the mouth so much more wider in the middle and the eyes so much like the ‘EU’ stamped ‘RDS’ version.. and then the tag, An ASIS you say! Well thats what is on there.. even though its incredibly similar to masks in the Fearsome line!

Identifying Facts.

Item No. #9206

Material: Soft White PVC

Colours: White, Orange, Green

Overall Length: From top of mask to bottom of chin approximately 30cm (Top of mask to end of chin.)

Eyes are Slightly more bigger than other masks, Nose is different of inner shape mold, thus going more into the bottom corners of the nose, (Other types listed above have noses with curved ends).

Stamp: Stamps are going to say “Easter Unlimited Inc, Made in China”, Factory may be any, one i own is “MK”

Tag: The tag was normally purple, some say pink, and also a plain black type was out there too.

Shroud: Black Stretchy Material, Labels were mostly always on the outside of the shrouds / Hoods on these types also.

Smell: Vanilla Smell

Mouth indent: length is 13cm

Selection of Colours: (From pictures online it seems the ASIS mold mask came in Orange and Green also)

Overall: At the end of the day we have yet another nice mask here, most types dont disappoint no matter how different the mouths, eyes, noses, and general molds are, throughout Scream 3 you can see the changes in types if you look but it doesn’t affect the final viewing of the film in any way.. not with me.. as long as its GhostFace !!

ASIS GhostFace Mask Fun World Div Stamp

The GhostFace® Line of masks were also used in “Scream 3”ghostfaceoldfontlrg

” The Black and Red old ‘GhostFace’ font tag also confirmed the new trademark of the mask, nothing like the previous masks in mold, this mold would be around for a long time and a variety of mask types used this mold as the base “

With the two previous films doing exceptionally well we then got a different mask tag which was now officially called “GhostFace®” these versions were “Glow” and “Non Glow” and are still around today, in Scream 3 we saw the GhostFace® tagged mask used and it differs from its other versions by having slightly bigger eyes and is made from a thicker material than before. On June 21, 1999 the name “GhostFace®” and the mask become one and the same officially. This was a decision of RJ Torbert.

The next line was actually after Scream 4 was out, in Halloween 2011.New%20logo%20tag%20lgr

” A New Logo and Tag also meant a few newer types of mask too, From Deluxe versions to Bright ‘Ultra White’ types, among others like ‘Zombie’ , ‘Scarecrow’ , and other Glow Types, even a newer foam mask, first introduced on RJ’s book, The Face of Fear, called the ‘GhostFace Mummy’ mask… “

In Halloween of 2011 fans now had a new tag to look out for which is now the most commonly used one out there today, in around mid 2010 the GhostFace® logo had a revamp, instead of the older pointy font we now had Ghostface® himself on the image, and a very nice font customised for GhostFace® with the ‘F’ being made into a blade, a new trademark was also applied for.. ‘The Icon of Halloween’, this was all registered on December 5th 2011. Up until then ‘TIOH’ had appeared on earlier red tags with the ‘TM’ next to it, later tags now have the ‘®’ next to the image.. Mask’s with the newer logo tag have varied and most mask’s now have the red tag. Although the 2012 versions of the Metallic mask’s still have the older style Black and Red tag with the Metallic Purple Mask in the picture. This is because the line is a special run, and not a common type like others we see every year!

Ever since the logo’s arrival it was evident that packaging and tags would change on other items too, the Bleeding masks would also have the Dark red packaging before appearing as they do now with the big rectangular tag, also on costumes we see the same colour on the background of the pictures, and most mask types like the ‘Scarecrow, Zombie and Mummy masks have the newer tags with a brighter red colour font for their names.

With regards to newer items though for different store chains like ASDA in the UK, and other stores in the U.S the GhostFace masks can have alternate tags, the Zombie mask even appeared with a ‘Totally Ghoul’ tag and even the Metallic masks had a change in 2013 too for a pinky coloured tag, which also included French wording of ‘Masque’ as well as a cat and ghost present.. These days though with newer items you will see the darker red packaging and tags becoming more and more common like the older GhostFace ‘Black and Red’ tag used to be.

RJ Torbert: I purposely made GHOST FACE left handed, because I knew I would be doing THE FACE OF FEAR

The older original masks are now very much sought after by Collectors.EU%20Stamp%20Green%20Mask

” Collector’s want ‘Tagged mask’s’ in a wide range and a variety of colours and types.. “

Since the ‘Scream’ films have released the masks popularity rose to massive levels, with many a fan simply loving the mask itself and how it was given life in the films therefore making its past versions sought after just as much as its current version, collectors look for “Tagged” versions of the “Fantastic” and “Fearsome” lines all the time along with the 1997 Tag known also as the ‘ASIS’ tag, even a rare white “Fantastic” mask was made along with Orange, Green and Pink Fluorescent versions which are hard to find now.

Factories around the world started making the masks after the demand got high.

” Factories since the early 90’s have seen many a mask type and mold since the beginning, Eyes in mask’s were hand cut at first, not like the machine’s these days.. “

Today the masks are made in several factories around the world, all factories have their own molds that differ from each other, the molds have to be approved but even so the masks from different molds will obviously be different side by side, when the Fantastic faces molds were made they were the only molds of this type, one mold, one factory, and the eyes were all cut out by hand, this is why on older masks the eyes may look different in some cases. In November 2012 whilst in China RJ posted a ‘Mother Mold’ picture for fans to see..

Tweets from RJ came below before the pic came!

coming soon, the “MOTHER” mold of Ghost Face, twitter followers are the “first” to see. Stay Tuned!

Younger audience styles.. Kids type masks for Fun at Halloween.

” Kid’s masks are a plenty when looking back through the years, from the Foam masks, to the bigger ‘Bobble Head’ types and even masks in Cloaks.. “

In recent years we have had some additions for the younger audience too, in 1998 we saw a “GhostFace® Family” picture from Fun World, which had different costume sizes and a “all in one” kids cloak with sewn in mask, and more recently the “Bobble Head” Costume which has a light weight large foam mask, one of the more popular masks i remember in this type is the “Bleeding mask” and also a “Glowing Blood” version was made, a new edition is a “Bleeding Zombie” which was out in 2010.

In 2010 i started to venture to ASDA more to see what things were available for GhostFace items.. Since 2010 i saw various things in stock which have sadly now gone down in selection to present day..

In 2010, apart from the Kids Mask’s and Cloak items we only had Black and Red Tag Zombie Masks and the Glow Masks.. Also the Bleeding types were there, Zombie and the original White mask.

2010 – ASDA Kids Mask and Cloak

In Recent time we have seen a couple of types of Kid’s Mask & Cloak combinations in the UK stores of ASDA, one being basically a minature ‘Walgreens / ReShoot’ mask sewn in a cloak which had a Purple ASDA tag on it.

2011 – ASDA Kids mask and Cloak

In 2011 i looked out again for the Kid’s masks as peope had requested them in trades, this time round we had a different mask in the Cloak, what basically is another sort of minature mask, this time, a small ‘Ultra White’ mask.. just the same as the larger Adult versions in looks and finish.

2012 – ASDA Stock

In 2012 for some reason we only saw the regular ASDA ‘Glow’ Masks, and the Bleeding masks, both Zombie and the Original white mask were present here, both with the newer big card tag on top of them.
For some reason the Kid’s masks never appeared this year. The ASDA Glows’ did have the different eyes compared to the 2011 version, this time we had a slight resemblence to the good old ‘Fearsome Faces’ eyes.
There were also the odd mask with what i called the ‘KNB Squint’ eyes.. More like it actually apppeared in 2013.

2013 – ASDA Stock

In 2013 we got an even less amount of things here for GhostFace! Sadly the only merchandise we got was the ASDA ‘Glow’ type masks, no sign of anything else whatsoever.. except maybe Scream 4 DVD and Blu Ray were still about to buy.

Over the years many versions were made, even Coloured masks.

” Throughout the masks life we have seen many colours, from Green, Pink, and Orange, then later on with Metallic Sparkly colours.. known as a ‘Special Run’ line for customers who want them. ” 

Ever since the start of the masks life we saw various colours over time, in the first named line “Fantastic Faces” we saw a Fluorescent type too which included a bright Orange and Green and also a Pink version.EU%20Stamp%20Green%20Mask

In the Fearsome Faces line we had colours like Green, but not sure about Orange or pink, as no fans have got

them it seems, although the (MK) and Black and Red Tag Ghostface mold do both have Green types out there which arent Metallic.. With the Fearsome it was a Green (HN) mold mask, and the (EU) mold that had a Lighter green colour mask too. Recently a fan (Joshie B) was sent one of the Black and Red tag EU types from RJ Torbert for donating to a charity RJ helps support.

Further down the line in 2003 we had “Metallic Masks” these were Red, Blue, Purple and Green and rare now.
In earlier years (Around 97, 98, 99.. im guessing) of Metallic’s the colours were the same but with two more added, a “Vibrant Red” and a “Silver” mask, described as “Gold Hen’s Teeth” as these were last made around 9 years ago.. molds of these masks were recently the same as the normal Black/Red GhostFace® tag, but also “EU” and “MK” molds were used for Metallic’s.. i have seen pictures of the “MK” Metallics, but not in person.. rarer for sure. (Pictured below).

If you have any of the coloured masks then you are lucky, not as many metallic masks were made as other versions, although some were re-produced in recent years, including 2013. (See News page, Dated August 20th)

GhostFace® Metallic Mask’s 2011 Mold

Identifying Facts.set%20of%202011%20metallics

Stamp: Back of Chin, Easter Unlimited Inc. Made in China

Shroud: Thin Black Material similar to regular masks

Smell: No Smell

Mouth Indent: 13cm

Tags: Black and Red GhostFace Tag with Purple Mask present

Overall: A nice set of masks here, these represented my first EVER set of Metallics and i was more than happy with them on finally seeing them in person, although years back i had seen a Red one in the same mold in a friends car, who showed me it because he knew i had this site online at the time.. saying ‘ You will like this.. not seen one in this colour have you, is it real? ‘
To which i responded, with something like, ‘Well its got the Fun World stamp so yes its real’ … I think i may have even searched online that night too checking up on it..

GhostFace® Metallic Mask’s 2012 Mold

Identifying Facts.set%20of%202012%20metallics

Item No. #8501

Material: Soft PVC Painted with very shiny Metallic Paint, Colours were Red/Orange, Blue, Purple, Green

Stamp: Back of Chin, Easter Unlimited Inc. Made in China

Shroud: Thin Black Material similar to regular masks

Tags: Black and Red GhostFace Tag like before the New Tag

Overall: A nice mask again, no matter what colour you get then its always shining.. this year the mold has changed, now the back of the chin has similarities to the ‘TD’ type mask’s.. also these mask’s separate themselves from the rest not just because of colour, but because on looking at both eyes they actually mirror each other almost perfectly, where as on many previous versions out there its not the case. Which is no bad thing as it gives Ghostface his individuality.

Overall: Another year, but the same previous mold this time, which is no bad thing, overall the masks yet again look good, until i see one in real life im sure the Green paint is lighter though.. its a shame the Red was discontinued but at least we still have the others, something is better than nothing after all.

GhostFace ‘TD’ Mold Metallic (Thrift Store find) by Joshie BTD%20metallic

Ever since revamping this page more and more info keeps coming through, and more mask pics and types added,

in this case its from a fan who has had a LOT of luck in 2013, Josh has been in and around many Thrift stores this year coming across Fantastic Faces, in White and Pink, Orange, among others, and even receiving a Green (EU Stamp) mask via RJ.. One of the most recent finds though was his Red Metallic mask, on telling me the info i assumed he meant the normal (EU) stamp types from maybe 2011 or 2012, then he said it was the ‘ReShoot’ type, to which i said What?!… yet another type of Metallic, as you can see from the picture its clearly a Fun World mask, on the TD mold, that we all know and love from years back and recently from its Scream 4 appearance, yet another type of GhostFace mask now added here, and just like the previously found (N) Stamp from Zach Bartron it is now housed here for fans to read up on!
Nice one Josh! Keep checking those Thrift stores!

The only questions that remain is.. was this a one off for a Store chain or company of some sort?.. Did the other colours exist in this mold? and.. what tag did it have on? all things to ask about in the future to Fun World. At this time it is unknown unless there are other fans out there who have these who want to share info, if anyone reading this has the Metallic masks in this mold then please contact the site using the main link above in the menu.

The Metallic Masks started out life as (MK) Mold’s, as you can see there were six colours originally, some fans do have these in their collections, but not with the ‘ASIS’
97 tag as seen here. Only with the regular ‘Purple mask’ picture present which is basically the common known ‘Black and Red’ tag just with the Metallic mask and Yellow star with the ‘Metallic Color Finish’ added in there..

In later years the Masks did go to the Commonly used ‘EU’ mold, many a mask seen before Scream 4’s announcement was possibly these mold’s..

In recent time of 2011 these masks did pop up again at the store chains of ‘Savers/Value Village’ limited amounts were made of 4,000 and many a fan ventured out to try their luck to get some, some traveled a few states to get them in their collection!

These mask’s were a special gift from RJ Torbert.2013%20red%20tag%20metallics
An event was going on at the Port Jefferson Library involving three authors who had set their stories in and around Port Jefferson, RJ was one of the three because of his novel, ‘The Face of Fear’ and he had put up several masks around the room prior to the event taking place.

Whilst talking to the attendee’s RJ dropped into his speech the fact i had come from the UK and that after the event the masks were mine to take away for my collection, i was beyond happy! Especially as it was my first time meeting him too!

They are the second set made in 2013, RJ kept the first set, What’s more interesting is the inner stamps saying ‘2ND SET- 2013 EDITION’ and also the fact that in 2013 the Red mask was discontinued, so a rare set indeed!

Below here we have small images of the inner mask stamps in the top of the forehead of each mask

Around late 2012 i had contacted a chap at the Nova Scotia Branch of ‘Savers/Value Village’ Reg, he had asked what versions/Colours were rare and i suggested the bright vibrant Red and Silver versions, he said he would ask about getting some of those.

Sadly though none did arrive in 2013, what i did get was an e mail saying the Metallic’s had arrived again and he suspected all four colours may be present like previous years, as time passed Reg noticed there were no Red masks this time around, on pursuing it further i asked RJ if he knew anything on it and his response was that the Red had been discontinued this year.

Also in 2013 we saw a tag change, one that was a hell of a lot more basic compared to the previous versions, also the Green paint appears to be slightly lighter too..


Various versions have various stamps… Why are they so important?

” Mask Stamps help a lot with defining a mask line it came from and a possible age, depending on which Stamp you have.. if you are lucky you will have the sought after early masks displaying the usual ‘FUN WORLD DIV’ on the bottom, ” 

Stamps, If you have a mask stamped “Easter Unlimited inc” or “Fun World Div” then you have a GENUINE Fun World mask, but why are the stamps always asked about? Well, the early Fantastic and very early Fearsome lines all had “Fun World Div” on the back of the chin meaning an old original mask, an early version which is what collectors want, all other newer versions from 1998 onwards will have “Easter Unlimited inc, Made in China” Depending on factory some may have (T) (MK) (EU) (HN) (TD) (N) below the text. The Mask’s known to fans as the Re-Shoot or Walgreens’ types all had the (TD) mark. Masks around different times have different marks..

On recently talking to RJ i can now add this extra info on mask stamps..
In the past i would always wonder ‘why’ the letters were there on the mask chins, whether it was an actual factory initial or code of some sort, or whether it was to identify a mold in particular for some reason, so recently i asked RJ Torbert and he told me the stamps were always on older masks so they knew which factory had made a particular type, so (MK) was one factory, and (HN) was another etc etc..

‘The old masks, had a MK or TD or HN that identified the factory to us, as to who made the mask, Because of the different versions, we wanted to keep track of where to go to, in case we had problems’

The MORE NEW or RECENT MASKS, do not have these marks, we have other ways now to identify where they were made.

FUN WORLD DIV – The first used stamps on early run lines, if you own a mask with this stamp then you have a Fantastic Faces or a Fearsome faces mask basically, (HN) Fantastic & Fearsomes did exist too.

(MK) Normally a mask around 1997 / 1998 time (Early Metallic’s used this mold type too)

(HN) An alternate mold used in early lines (Basically like an alternate Fantastic or Fearsome mask)

(N) Another factory stamp recently come across by a fan buying mask via Ebay.. Zach Bartron
The (N) Stamp looks like a cross between the EU Stamped ASIS 97 mask and a late Fearsome

(T) Another alternate mold type around since 1997 onwards.. recent (T) versions ARE still seen today
The most recently seen (T) stamps have the Newer Logo tag present too. (Also on this page)

(TD) Seen after the time the ‘Black and Red’ tags were everywhere.. Known more recently among fans as the ‘Walgreens’ mask or ‘Re-shoot’ mask.. Even some smaller TD molds were used for kids masks.

(EU) basically meaning ‘Easter Unlimited’ common as ever now, raised stamps now exist in many masks.
In the last decade the (EU) stamps were among most of the masks made and the most common, even these days with the ‘Stampless chins’ on recent types we still see the (EU) stamp on the mask either on the back of the chin in a couple of forms, or inside the mask up near the top left hand side above the eye. You can see old and new stamps pictured below.. ANYTHING that has the sought after ‘FUN WORLD DIV’ is an old mask, as in a Fantastic or Fearsome faces mask line.

Mask Stamp Pictures below of all main stamps..

Masks have had Hoods and now Shrouds to this day, some have elastic straps.Hoodedmaskslrg

” Hooded Versions were only in the ‘Fantastic’ and ‘Fearsome’ Lines, although today’s ‘Deluxe’ types have a slight resemblance to them.” 

Shrouds were on every mask and help keep the mask on the head and sometimes in some Zombie and Bleeding masks have had Elastic Straps, and early on in the Fantastic and Fearsome lines there were hooded versions which i think made the mask look better, in recent times we see a slight repeat of this with the new 2011 version Deluxe mask. Older masks however either has a thick black shroud or even a thin black shroud which is transparent compared to older versions.

Mask and Cape Costume …. Other Hooded type mask..mask%20and%20cape%20set%20wg%20rs%20mask

Another ‘Cloaked’ or ‘Hooded’ similarity is with a version of costume that often pops up via Ebay and other auction sites, the ‘Mask and Cape Costume’, sometimes seen and mistaken for the older hooded types until looking at the pictures, the mask and cape costume is always seen with another sought after type mask, that being the early edition ‘Walgreens’ mask.. which is always a TD Stamp, and this one also being a Glow type too.

GhostFace® Mask and Cape Costume

Identifying Facts.

Item No. #9219

Material: Thick yet bendy Soft PVC

Overall Length: 32cm (From top of mask to bottom of chin).

Stamp: © Easter Unlimited inc. Made in China. TD

Shroud: In this case a Cloak attached, thin Black stretchy material, like the normal shrouds. Foam insert in hood.

Smell: No smell

Mouth Indent: 12.5cm

Glow: Yes

Tags: Tag is the older style Purple and Black similar to ASIS’

Overall: The costume is aimed more at a younger audience i think here, or could be just a simple alternative to having a costume and running with the hood always flying backwards, this stops it instantly with the mask being attached into it. I see these quite often around Halloween popping up online due to the fact mainly being that there is normally an older style mask in there.. now commonly more known to the fans as a ‘Re-Shoot’ or ‘Walgreens’ type, the real name if any is just a TD GhostFace mask .

The masks themselves are nice and always attract attention to fans because of the stamp type, the Re-Shoot versions as used in Scream 4 are basically a newer version of this type, the similarities being more with the eyes in the picture against the Scream 4 types, even the 2010 & 2011 types differ slightly here in overall look of the eyes, but the 2012 version comes awfully close to this a lot more with regards to being closer to the film used masks. Whether its in a cloak or a single mask this version is another ‘Must Have’ for fans and collectors. I have noticed that if they are in an online auction then there will be a last few minutes worth of battling bids to try and obtain one.

More info on this type of mold is further down the page with all previous types from previous years.

A mask tags presence or absence can value or de-value a mask.

” Mask Tags help define the age of a mask and what line it may come from, Tags are not attached to masks in costume packages, also in some cases a company may have their own tag requested, such as ‘ASDA’ masks.. “

The tag can define a mask instantly, and also let us know what line it was from, one of the most commonly seen tags now is the “GhostFace®” tag that has either a yellow star or simply no yellow star, defining that it is either a Glow or Non Glow type, on some the mask picture will have a green tint, on others its white, the metallic tags had a different mask but same background, early Fantastic and Fearsome tags were a plenty with different types, this is what collectors want, a variety of tags for more value and genuity.

Since this section was first wrote out the commonly seen Black and Red tag (Pictured with the Yellow star) has been phased out now, (apart from old stock and Metallic masks) as we have had the Newer logo and dark red tag replace it since Scream 4 came about.

Below are a few thumbnails of tags seen through the years all the way back since the Mask’s first line, Fantastic Faces… the tags are displayed in an approximate order from old to new.. there are more types of tag than below.. this is a majority of them only! New tags are always springing up, even this years Metallic mask’s have an alternate tag now.

Buying online? Follow steps to avoid disappointment.. Fun World’ is the way to go…. AVOID FAKES.

” Avoid Cheap crap for low prices, ONLY buy REAL Fun World made masks, avoid over-priced masks that seem to appear from scamming sellers that ask three or four times the mask’s real value…”

Many many people today buy online, its faster, quicker sometimes, and even cheap if you get lucky, but please be careful out there, ONLY buy a mask if its a “Fun World” made one, there are many cheap imitations out there, many without hoods or shrouds, just with an elastic strap only, and NON Fun World. Fun World is the ONLY company who make GhostFace® masks, they own it and licence it out to the Weinstein’s for Scream movies. Dont buy any other please. They are NOT GENUINE. If you are lucky you may see Masks described as ‘HN’ or ‘EU’ types in recent descriptions.. Grab them if at a sensible price, Pay what YOU would pay for a mask!
In recent times i have seen Fantastic Faces GhostFace masks with prices of over $700, thats just too much for any fan, and sellers like to take advantage of any fool who may part with that amount of money, always laughing behind their back at their decent profit! DONT OVERPAY! ANY FANTASTIC FACES mask (unless confirmed as used in SCREAM) is not worth over $400 really… they are just masks at the end of the day!

Buying masks via EBay is something i have done a lot of.. the Stock pictures used by sellers dont always match what you think you are going to get.. or sometimes the same image is used by many sellers confusing the hell out of us buyers sometimes.. the FAKE masks are clearly noticeable in the display pictures used, anyway, listed and linked below are a few sellers that i have used or know of that sell masks that are the REAL DEAL for Fun World made GhostFace masks…

First though i have to say this… If theres one question that has gotten popular lately it is the one below..

‘ Where can i buy a Real Fun World Ghostface mask? ‘

Why ?? …. How come that is growing so popular in the Email inbox of this site? Well due to the amount of people asking lately i have wrote all of what is below, read it carefully and all going well you will be the new owner of a REAL GhostFace mask in the near future… Pay attention to what is written there and remember to ALWAYS ASK about what you could be buying.. a few links are there also for Masks for sale and some of the sellers listed there i have bought from myself.

Links below lead to some masks by Fun World on Ebay, if you dont use Ebay or have an account, then i suggest you either make a new account or look up your nearest costume or fancy dress shop and see whats on offer, the official masks ALWAYS have the Fun World text or logo on an inner label or tag, on the packaging it is in. If theres no sign of the logo or any text like it then avoid it, also avoid many of the fakes by checking to see if the tag or packaging is plastered with ‘Screamer’ or ‘Screamer Mask’ or ‘Screaming Mask’.. things like that.

With regards to Ebay sellers its best to ALWAYS ask if they know what their stock is that they are selling, like if its a bright white Non Glow mask or a Creamy colour Glow mask, if its older stock then they may know better by looking at the tag, ASK ASK ASK.. thats what they SHOULD be used to, if you go to buy a car you dont just ask if the engine runs, you ask more about it so you can overcome possible future problems, same with masks, ask as much as you want about what you are going to spend YOUR hard earned money on, if you get no response then try another seller as the ones who dont answer obviously dont care too much about selling stock and dont deserve your time or money.

The Links below are just to a few Mask listings on Ebay, NOTHING is guaranteed here as to whether you will end up with an Ultra White Non Glow, or a Glow Mask, or an older stock mask from years ago, again, ASK!
For me its come up trumps in the past and ive ended up with some nice masks.. The links below dont have to be used at all, they are just there as a starting point and what to look for in the items description for the genuine masks. I have bought off a couple of the ones below myself and they ARE real Fun World masks, otherwise i wouldn’t be putting them here.

Ebay Seller – The Butchers Dragon (4 Types of Mask here) – MASK LINK

If for whatever reason you prefer to buy from major costume or fancy dress websites then that is fine, just Google them and many will pop up, just remember that if you are in another country far away there may be a hefty shipping charge.. be aware of that.

Rare Masks that are hard to find to this day!HHN%20CE%20mask%20250

” Some mask’s pop up in rare types that long time collectors didn’t know about in the past, this being the Cryptic/Gauze GhostFace mask, and also a recent New discovery of ( N ) Stamp masks.. Rareness is also because of amounts made at the time which may be for promotions or store chains.. ” 

With quite a few styles of mask to begin with its no surprise that after 25 years of being available to the general public that some types are particularly hard to find.. “Hen’s Teeth” is what i say to describe these as its the perfect phrase for some masks, Masks are also harder to find in other countries, in the UK only certain types are sold, and other countries like Germany or Denmark or Australia they are limited too as are many others, so to clarify, if you have the listed versions below then count yourself very lucky..

Versions not seen much are as follows…

Halloween Horror Nights mask, (Reason in the Horror Nights Mask info box further down the page).
Fluorescent Fantastic Versions. (Orange, Green, Pink) 1st and 2nd Generation
Hooded Fearsome and Fantastic Types and White Fantastic Version.
Metallic’s, Normally appearing Yearly at ‘Savers/Value Village’ stores since 2011
Scary Movie (Killer Mask, Recently appeared online via a prop site).gauzecrypticgfmask
GhostFace® Gauze/Cryptic GhostFace® Type. Only 1000 Made.
Metallic versions from older times also included a “Silver” and “Vibrant Red” version, EXTREMELY RARE..
Tagged with the familiar “As Seen in the motion picture “SCREAM” Purple Tag”
( N ) Stamp masks, normally a cross between a Fearsome and an ‘ASIS’ mask, (Limited info at this time)
(MK) Stamp coloured masks, Orange.
(HN) Green Mask

Versions that are rare, but not as much and sometimes on EBay are as Follows…

Tagged or Untagged Fantastic and Fearsome Faces GhostFace® Masks, Including the “RDS” EU Fearsome, HN Fearsome, and other “Fun World Div” Stamped chin masks.. (Which will be early lines)

The Purple tag (Mentioned above) are normally seen floating about, In recent time, i have seen quite a few for sale in Facebook Groups on the subject of Scream Trades and Sales and Memorabilia..

There are many versions of the mask that have been made to this day.

” Many a version of GhostFace mask’s exist, some can be Color-Changing, Foam, Flip Up, and even a mask the same as the Bleeding mask exists, just without the blood inside..
Some are becoming rarer now though.. “plastic%20non%20bleeding%20mask

Other versions of the mask that can still be found out there mainly on EBay are the “Color Changing” version which goes Red, Green and Blue/Purple.. also out there is the “Flip up” mask, simple use with wearing this, put around your head and flip it up when you want just like a welders mask motion. We also have a mask made of foam, extremely light, very bright white compared to its predecessors.

Plastic Mask
The Ghostface mask also still comes as a plain plastic mask and is still seen about today with a smaller ‘Black and Red’ type tag on the top of it, one of those masks that is often seen on ebay at this time, a mask that wont need re-shaping and one thats also easily identified too!

The most rare mask out of these in this section in my opinion is the Flip Up type.. Years ago i saw these in ASDA in the UK and wondered at the time where the normal shroud versions were, as in the shop then i think they had sold out of the normal types.. i just wish i had picked up a couple and bought them now. The Foam masks can still be found on Ebay every now and again and via Amazon i believe. The Color Change mask was common on ebay but again getting rarer nowadays.. if you see them, buy them.

Another rarer type now we dont much is another foam mask, known as the Bobble Head mask, as used in Scream 4 on the street lamps at the start of the film, we see the man taking these down whilst saying hello to ‘Dewey’ and ‘Sidney’ spots them as she walks up towards the book store.. These came in a plastic covering and retailed for quite a bit more than the normal masks, mainly due to the size of the things i think.. if anything it reminds me of a massive RDS mask, due to the eye spacing.. Grab them if you see them! Linked HERE!

There are few types of Bleeding mask for all blood loving people out there.

” Bleeding Masks have been about since the late 90’s, starting with the plain white mask behind clear glossy plastic to contain the blood, later on we saw Glowing Red and Green Blood versions and years later a Zombie type.. “

Since as far as i can remember the Bleeding mask was out in around 1997/98 and i had to have one to see if it lived up to the expectations i had. it did, it pumped blood around with no mess, later on came a version with Glowing Blood which had two colours of the blood, that being a Bright red/orange and a Green type which looks impressive in the dark, (See Photo of Green Mask) In 2010 we saw the release of another version, The Bleeding Zombie, the same overall design just with a rotting style white mask inside. Be Careful where you put the “Heart Style” pump though, dont sit on it! Will there ever be any more Bleeding types? At this time who knows..

Interesting Fact: The Bleeding mask patent is owned by Alan Geller.

Fiber Optic GhostFace Mask
Here we have another version which looks to be ‘based off’ the Bleeding Version molded mask, in this case we have of course, no blood, but instead, small Fiber optic lights that highlight the main face features, such as the eyes, the nose, and the mouth, on pressing the button the lights would continually flash whilst pressed, or if you simply used the switch on the box and turned it on then then the lights would continue until switched off again.

To my knowledge and after looking online, i see there is limited info on this type, but i can easily see it had two different types of packaging in its time, one similar to the Bleeding Mask packaging when it first arrived, and another simply being a thick cardboard header tag (Same cardboard thickness seen on the later 2010 Scarecrow Scream Header tag), and a tagged black box on the bottom of the hood with the usual ‘Try me’  (On packaged version), and ‘Battery Housing in your pocket’ in the Yellow star’ as seen on the ‘Black and Red’ style Mask header tags.

It is ‘Assumed’ that these were either late 90’s produced after the Bleeding mask was more known, or possibly not too long after 2000. The reason why there are two types of packaging, and the fact there were ‘Tagged’ types out there is currently unknown. Still an interesting mask though, and also one fitting the ‘Hen’s Teeth’ of Rarity category! More so with the Tagged type.

“Scary Movie” spoof versions of the mask appeared later on.

” Many a version of masks Spoofing GhostFace were made for the movie but not all types were used, the types unused remain nameless to my knowledge ! “

After Scream masks we saw a spoof version GhostFace® from the “Scary Movie” film, these were again made by Fun World, 4 versions were in the film, Killer’, Stoned’, Whassup’, and Smiley’, all versions apart from “Stoned” appeared in a single scene together, the Stoned version later in the movie, 3 versions were released for public sale, but not the “Killer” version, although RJ Torbert does have all molds in his office! A total of 7 versions were made for the movie itself.. names of the unseen versions are currently unknown.

Masks that are out of shape or lose eye mesh can be fixed with simple tricks.

” Fixing mask’s thankfully isn’t a hard task, all you have to do is take it one step at a time.. Eye mesh, and re-shaping are normally what i hear about with regards to ‘Fixes’ “

Sadly in some shops i have seen too many masks that have been flattened in a box and not pushed out again, others lose eye mesh from time to time. To reshape a mask you can warm it up with a hair dryer for a few minutes and reshape with your hands, keep trying until you are happy with it, be aware that some masks are a different thickness and depend on what you are trying to reshape, for instance the thicker ‘Zombie’ masks and even ‘Ultra White’ masks may take some more warming up before they get easily movable, once they are movable you will notice, when doing my own masks i put the mask on my knee and shape it whilst warm there. As of November 2016 i made a new video to show fans how hair dryers can help Reshape masks that are flat or out of shape from storage or from shop purchases etc.. Below.

Eye Mesh, with eye mesh womens “Pantyhose” is often used, cut out how much you need and glue in the mask, sometimes used to conceal eyes so camera flashes dont penetrate through. Normally quite an easy fix this one, just for the love of God DONT go using super glue as this gives off nasty fumes and you dont want that anywhere near your eyes at the best of times, never mind in a mask which sits on your face until you remove it.old%20age%20masks%20care

Masks that are old or always in the bright light can show signs of aging or become discolored from the sun.

Sadly over time the normal Soft PVC masks can show signs of age, sun%20damaged%20mask
this is normally seen in the form of “Black

Spots” or what looks like blurs around the mask, on a Non Glow version i have it has a black spot on the edge of the eye and near the mouth top there are black blurry lines. So how can this be avoided? Keep the mask in a dark place or poorly lit area, this will slow it down, there is no complete way to stop it as the material will eventually rot away steadily after a very very very very long time.

The main thing with many collectors is that they like to have their masks displayed (Myself included) and whether its in a display case or just hanging on the wall you should do your best to keep them out the direct sunlight, in recent times i was in NYC and picked up a mask from Spirit Halloween, on further inspection it had Orangey type colouring on one side but not on the other side, plus it had been re-tagged with a Spirit one that they use if a tag is lost or been discarded for some reason, so at some point they had used the mask in or on a display and de-tagged it for the purpose.. afterwards its re-tagged and back on the shelves for sale.. with Sun Damage! As a collector i didn’t look much into it at the time, with regards to fussiness about how the mask looked, at the end of the day i haven’t got a problem with it and can use it for an example for others to learn from via this page, so future collectors and fans can look after their GhostFace booty to the max!

To keep your masks in as good a condition as possible, keep your masks out the sun basically! and if not on display keep them in a closet or somewhere with no light.

Common Masks are “Glow in the Dark” type mask, Non Glow are popular too.

” From as long i can remember Glow masks have always been the most seen in the UK, but with that fact standing out the NON Glows become sought after for their rarity here.. “ 2011%20gf%20masks%20walmart%20big%20eyes

Glow mask types are often defined by the tag having a yellow star, on the new version 2010 tags the star is missing now, but another way of finding out what version it is can be by looking at the picture of the mask on the tag, some have a green tint on it, others dont, the Non Glows are without the tint and just have a white mask picture, other times it is vice versa, but the only sure way of know is by holding the mask under a bright light and seeing if it goes green.

In recent time we have seen many a new version mask but one type sticks out to me because there dont seem to be lots and lots of new molds meaning we wouldn’t expect to see this mask about a lot.. in the picture above look at the mask on the right, this came from, i ordered two from there and received a 2013 MFG date one and this one from 2011, the mouth and nose and finish are fine making it a Non Glow, but look at the eyes, a hell of a lot bigger for some reason, in all the pictures online of these newer masks since 2010 onwards this is a type i haven’t seen much of, although the new, but now cancelled fan film ‘Scream Generations II’ has this mask in their Facebook page picture as their main mask, so its out there in the USA, but not as such in the UK or other places.. On looking at my own version of this i can see its not how the black inner eye paint makes it appear, the actual mold is that wide with the eyes.. on checking the tag and label its just listed as a 9206S.. like most other ‘Ultra White’ masks out there.. E mail the site if you have one of these masks via the main ‘Contact’ link above!

In late 2010 we saw new version masks, Zombie, Scarecrow, Bleeding Zombie.

” Come Halloween 2010 all fans were excited about the fact that Scream 4 was around the corner, also, we had some new masks to look forward to.. “

Many people will know these masks well by now as i last put this section up as NEW in 2010…scarecrow%2520mask%2520variant%2520burlap%2520hood%2520latex Anyway, the masks we received were as in the picture, GhostFace® Zombie mask, GhostFace® Scarecrow mask, and a new GhostFace® Bleeding version, basically Zombie type, a rotted style mask that pumped blood like previous versions.. only the Red blood has been seen in these types and the packaging has changed twice since its arrival.

GhostFace® Scarecrow Mask(Original) aka ‘Scarecrow Scream’… (on its first version tag)
The Scarecrow was a first for GhostFace® masks, we now had a solid mask with actual Burlap material over the top, some versions had a matt black mouth, others had a shiny black mouth, inside we had a foam pad for the

forehead to rest against and the Burlap shroud had Velcro at the back to fasten shut, the bottom of the shroud was cut into triangle edges, also there is a short brown rope fastened at the rear too. Since this version arrived it has been updated already and is explained further down the page, a couple of different variants of this Scarecrow mask is known to exist among the costumes. (Pictured to the right). Scarecrow mask with Soft PVC mask and the burlap hood, known only in costume packages.. In the picture the Burlap hoods looks like its been thickened up a bit more than the previous first run types.. Another fact with the Soft PVC Scarecrow mold is that it appears to have the exact same features as the ‘Ultra White’ masks with the ‘Fearsome’ style Right eyes.. (Left eye as you see it in the picture) Anything relating to a Fearsome isn’t a bad thing!

GhostFace® Scarecrow

Item No. #93214

Material: Soft PVC Plastic type material in Brown

Overall Length: 32cm (From top of mask to bottom of chin).

Shroud: Brown Burlap Stringy material, Velcro at the back

Tags: Tags have varied since creation, Black and Red older style tag, and Red Newer logo tag have been used.

Overall: The Scarecrow mask is just about one of a kind for GhostFace, a hard solid mask covered completely in Burlap, probably one of the most awkward to make at the factory, but the details are there and it lives up to its name ok.. Overall finishes varied slightly with types seen in photos from fans online, some had the Shiny mouth and others had the matt black painted mouth. A ‘Must have’ for GhostFace collectors though..

GhostFace® Zombie Mask2010%20new%20arrivals%20trio

Another first for GhostFace® here, since the masks creation we had seen many types with regards to colours and molds, but again we hadn’t seen this type, a rotting style mask showing its supposed old age through years of neglect, i remember seeing something like it in a short fan film via YouTube back in around 2006/07 when two teenagers are out and about and one finds an abandoned mask in some bushes after he has responded to Mother Natures calling..

In this masks life we have seen variants too, some masks have the smooth back of the chin, others have a seam over each side which says that a couple of molds exist for this, also dont forget this is a Deluxe type too!

Mask differences, paint jobs on the Zombie may differ here and there.

In recent times we have seen new masks released, these being a new 2010 edition “GhostFace®” tag masks that are “Glow” and “Non Glow” and also a “Zombie” and “Scarecrow” version, on seeing many new pictures there are already differences, the Scarecrow is also a solid mask. Although the Zombie Version is more rigid than previous version white masks too. The Zombie also has a Deluxe Collectors Edition.. Explained in the next section.

Stamp: Barely visible on many, a Copyright © is there and barely a “Made in China” on my versions.

Shroud: Black Stretchy Material

Smell: Slight Vanilla Smell

Back of Chin: On UK ASDA versions from 2010 the back of the chin had two lines either side.
On U.S versions there were no lines..

Mouth Indent: 12cm

Tags: 2010 versions had matt black tags and also shiny black tags. 2011 versions had the new GhostFace® logo tags, and some stores in the U.S had these masks with a “Totally Ghoul” tag on..

“Zombie” and “Scarecrow” tags updated, i have advice for collectors.

With Scream 4 now come and gone we know that the main mask type used in the movie was a Special Production run Deluxe type mask, that was until the January/February Re-shoots in Jan/Feb 2011… which consisted of the nicknamed ‘Walgreens’ or ‘Re-Shoot’ types.. us fans nickname everything!

While Scream 4 was in production neither Fun World or the fans knew if the current (at that time) Zombie and Scarecrow versions would appear.. obviously we now know that they didnt officially appear in the film although word from the set of some sort came about that Zombie and Scarecrow masks were placed on random kids in the barn scene.. to this day i have not spotted anyone with them.. no matter how many times you pause the Blu Ray or DVD versions.

So.. why the ‘Possibly Rare.. ?

Well at that time in 2010 when these masks were out new they had the older Black and Red tags on them, at that time i mentioned that if they were used then they could in the future have a new tag with (As seen in Scream 4) on the tags.. making the older tag versions rare in the future.. sure enough further on down the line we saw the older Black and Red tag phased out as newer Collectors Editions and the Newer red logo tag emerged..

Older tagged masks are still about via Ebay and websites who maybe have old stock but in years to come these will become rarer just like the predecessors in the ‘Fantastic Faces’ and ‘Fearsome Faces’ lines.. Hang on to them if you have them.

Zombie Differences from 2010 to recent 2013 type.

The Zombie mold has slight differences in variations with regards to paint jobs and even molds, in recent time we have seen the mask itself appear more in a Whiter colour than the first introduced grey colour back in 2010.. with the previous Black and Red tag, the Whiter looking mask doesn’t disappoint though and is another good addition to anyone’s collection.

GhostFace® Scarecrow Mask (Alternate)

” This Mask was first seen about in 2012, but according to fans it may have existed before then in Costumes only, this type is a softer more flexible mask than its solid predecessor !.. “

In the past we saw the Scarecrow mask appear as a solid mold mask, either in a Black shiny base or a matt black base, with Burlap stuck on the top. A couple of variants exist for the Scarecrow though according to collectors, these being mainly seen as part of the full costume, one was with a Soft PVC mask and real burlap hood, another was the type we see here, an almost Deluxe type hood, with a printed burlap effect..

Mouth Indent: 12cm (Misty Black paint, not too glossy, and not too ‘matt’)

Tags: New GhostFace® Logo Dark Red Tag

Overall: Here we basically have a Revamped version of the Scarecrow mask, this version not being the solid molded mask like we first saw in 2010.. this is a mask made out of thick but soft PVC that has a textured surface to resemble the Burlap effect, Black paint is around the inner eyes just as we see with other version mask’s..
The mold looks to be the same as the 2012 Ultra White mask’s because of the overall shape and length and especially the eye shapes, resembling the old Fearsome types. (Left Curved eye, Right Straight lines eye)

Mask Identifying

” All Masks have their little give aways, Whether its an indent in the mouth, or shape of an eye, or just the stamp itself, all these little factors can determine what the line was and approximate year it was made, mask%20id%20marksNewer masks now have MFG dates on the labels though” 

On this part you can read up on how to identify a mask, many masks have certain features about them that gives them their overall look and shape, thus identifying what type it is to the seeker out there..

Early version masks are identified at the top of the page with the rest of their info, more recent masks are now listed also. When it comes to identifying types it is normally more the early mask lines enquired about due to not have the MFG dates like these days, but also when it comes to the earlier Masks like the Fantastic’s and Fearsome’s they can come very close to looks and make it hard to identify even though we have the picture illustrations at the top of the page!mfg%20date

Obviously some masks cant be mistaken, Scarecrow, Bleeding, Color Changing, Metallics, Fluorescent’s and Kids masks and Foam types among others.. If any doubt at all just look for a label that has “Easter Unlimited” or Fun World. Otherwise check alongside the pictures above to see if a match appears. If you are still stuck then CONTACT ME and ill have a look for you if you send a picture to me, anything you have whether a tag or label on the inner or outer of the mask shroud can help. A picture is a must though!
(I am by far NOT an expert, but have come to get to know many mask types since starting the site)

Many masks from 2001 onwards have mostly been the same shape and mold, but with recent activity in GhostFace® world we now have new mask types, some people just have trouble identifying older versions but the ones i feel are harder to identify or have little differences not always known are listed on this page, other types are very easily noticed as anyone can see from all the mask pictures on this page!MK mold mask french

The only other differences i can list here are the ones that will be seen when trying to identify between the alternate masks from earlier times like the (T) (MK) (HN) (N) Which are all alternate variations or ‘Add on’ masks to the lines they first came from like the Fantastic and Fearsome types.. Although the (T) stamps were not about at first creation.. they seemed to arrive in the late 90’s after Scream 2 had emerged..

The (HN) was a part of the Fearsome Faces times, the (N) from what we now seems to be from between the

Fearsome and ‘ASIS’ times, the (MK) came later, maybe 97-98 time, and can be EASILY identified from the others because of its long features of the mouth and very squinty eyes.. (Pictured to the right)

The (MK) types are seen quite often on the UK Ebay site, it seems they can be slightly rarer across the pond in the USA and seem to pop up every now and again online for sale around Halloween, always untagged, although in 2013 we did see a Glasgow based company advertise them on EBay and i was quick to get a message to them to see if they were just using an old stock photo or if it was the actual types of mask they had, in this case they DID have that type, needless to say i now own one.. i have two others but they are untagged, although i do have the Alternate Black and Red GhostFace tag that goes with it.. so two out of my three masks have the tag.

With regards to its overall shape and features you can see why these masks are easily identified, they did also come on other colours at the time, Orange being a known one, and of course very early Metallic masks were in this mold.

The ( T ) Stamp masks

For a hell of a long time now, (probably after 1996-97) we have been given another alternate mold version that surprisingly has been around in recent years too, like 2011-12 times.. the (T) mask mold, notably recognizable due the bigger eyes and longer and sometimes bigger in width mouth, another give away with this mask is the notable size of the forehead, its very big.. (Check the picture)

These masks have been around more than you think, the most recent tag on one of these was on Ebay from seller ‘TVMovieGifts’ again, on the image they have it is clearly recognizable straight away as a (T) stamp due to the features.. On speaking to many a fan and myself included, i messaged the seller to try and get one, needless to say there was the normal ‘No Response’ regular occurrence sadly, its people like this we need as fans, then we can try and help each other out with regards to getting hard to find masks.

Scre4m ( T ) Stamp – New Logo Tag / Header Card

As you can see from the second picture the features are there straight away, check out the mouth
length and the fact that the black paint fills the indent almost fully, with normal masks you dont get that, you normally have a few millimeters spacing.

These masks have been found elsewhere in the USA by another fan nicknamed ‘StillScreaminginMichigan‘ and he can apparently get them when he heads to that state every now and then so dont give up hope yet if you cant get them via Ebay, Normally i would recommend the ‘TvMovieGifts’ seller highly but sadly in recent years the postage has been risen stupidly by these people and it just puts collectors off, especially if they are out of the USA.


In 2011 we saw the new “Deluxe Edition” mask, as used in Scream 4.

” Since their release the Deluxe has done well with fans, as the years have gone by the Hoods length has got longer each time, fans now nickname the masks by generation, 1st gen, 2nd gen, or 1st run, or 2nd run etc.. 3 types are known to have been out there a while now, Non Glow, Glow, and Zombie.. “2011%20dlx%20selection

Some lucky fans had these early on from RJ via twitter before their general release, for either having websites and doing a good job on them or winning them via twitter, these new masks have a pearlescent finish and a new hood and a “Dwarf Style” type shroud. Fans were eager for this on seeing pictures and in time it has become a popular type ever since.

As for tags on these the early versions were the same as the new 2010 glow and non glow, which was the old ‘Black and red’ Ghostface card, a new logo version surfaced afterwards with and without the Yellow text ‘Collectors Edition’.

STORAGE of First Run Deluxe Version Masks.

After a fan ‘Zach’ stored his first run’ Deluxe mask away he noticed that the ‘Spots’ that were on his Deluxe had actually somehow transferred onto another regular mask which was previously fine. If storing masks away then i advise putting each one in an individual bag to prevent things like this from happening.

This was only known to happen on earlier Deluxe masks, and NOT recently made masks. I have three Deluxe masks, two of which were earlier manufacturing dates, yet they are both fine. NOT ALL early Deluxes have this problem, seems only a small amount had the so called ‘Spots’ ….

Deluxe Mask & Bleeding Knife Set: The Deluxe masks didn’t only come as tagged (CE) masks, they also had their own set which included the Bleeding Knife too, a Non Glow was actually a (TD) Stamp Mask, and we then had the normal Deluxe mold for the Glow mask, many fans have been out and got both types, and also for the sake of having a variety in their collections they have been seen to have normal tagged (CE) TD masks too, which are a bit harder to find but are out there.

The ‘TD’ Mask, aka ‘Walgreens mask’ or ‘Re-Shoot Mask’

” Since before Scream 4 was even announced this mask existed, with the old familiar ‘Black and Red’ tag that we all know, it popped up here and there from collectors pictures and nobody was any the wiser as walgreens%20rs%20lgrsuch, then Scream 4 was underway and a while after some Re-Shoots were needed, this mask made its appearance on the big screen at that stage! .. ” 

Around 2010 we had a slightly different shape of mask about in shops but not many of us clicked on i think, still these masks as like other types went on to get a ‘Nickname’ thanks to Scream 4 obtaining a batch for the January and February 2011 ‘Re-shoots’, they were also seen mainly at ‘Walgreens’ Stores, thus giving the fans a choice of two ways to describe these types, simply a ‘Walgreens’ or ‘Re-Shoot’ mask! The REAL name is really just a ‘TD’ Mold GhostFace mask.

2011 is the time some fans first saw this mask in a way, because it was on the front of the EW Magazine, at the time of Scream 4 being the major topic for us! It has seen a few versions before getting its two nickname’s, Its main differentiating feature being the longer/thinner look face, and more squinty eyes than other versions.

Shroud: Black Stretchy Material

Smell: Vanilla Smell

Mouth Indent: 12.5cm (Both Types)

Types: There are Glow and Non Glow types.

Tags: (2010, Black and Red GF tag) (2011, New GhostFace® Logo tag)

Overall: Two types that are both sturdier molds compared to previous types, more noticeable because of the long mouths stretching evenly down each side of the mouths, the 2010 eyes however have a molded edge on them, the 2011 has that same area smoothly rounded off instead.

Other: Main differences from other masks are the back of the chin, instead of being a solid mouth its now hollow further down, the rear of the mold then comes back towards the face instead of hanging below it as much as other versions, a better way to see is to have one next to a normal mask.

Other (CE) edition Deluxe Type: The TD mask also exists as a Collector’s Edition Deluxe mask (Pictured above) as part of a Mask & Bleeding Knife set in which the TD mask is a Non Glow type. The Glow types are a different mold seen also in the UK ASDA stores, only the shroud is the standard type, and not Deluxe.

Overall: Yet again another good quality mask, so different to the older Mold masks like the ‘ASIS’ 97 tag type and even the Fantastic’ and Fearsome’ shapes, and many others, it has its character given to it by its longer and smaller width sides of its mouth, the eyes also differ again going slightly back to its 2010 version with the sharper edges and smaller eye holes. The mouth cut is also slightly further down, although we see this on previous versions now and again too. Whilst ‘Walgreens’ is where it mainly was im told it was also at Walmart too this year!

Overall: Basically another nice mask which is more similar to the 2012 type if any of them, eyes seem a bit more squinty then the 2012 version and despite the masks overall thickness its actually quite flexible, the Pre 2010 Glow masks were also like this.

Additional Info from recent days.. (November 22nd 2013)
As of this page going online with the huge updates it was ‘thought’ that the TD masks were not made in 2013 as fans in the USA (Where the masks are always normally found) could not find them anywhere, myself included when i went to NYC in October 2013, lots of other GhostFace items were present and correct but there was nothing of the TD masks.. In recent time (Late 2013) i purchased a mask and gown off a random ebay seller because i thought maybe it was an older TD mask, (Pre 2010 maybe) and i took a gamble on it, on its arrival i was happy to see the tag had been put into the costume bag with the mask also, even though the tag wasnt attached it was still good to have it, after checking the mask i had noticed the tag and label had the MFG date as APR-JUN 2013… so finally i could put to rest thoughts on the masks being made or not in 2013.. Also on the tag is a ‘Palmer’ sticker who are one of the main distributors for GhostFace and Fun World merchandise into the UK, so somewhere out there in the UK at least there will be more TD masks from 2013.. The good news was the tag had a price sticker on it, that sticker had a shop name, on going to the site and ebay shop i found a mask to buy, on searching after my purchase it appeared i had bought the last one.. which is typical as i was going to put a link above in the ‘Buying Masks’ section here..
If anymore info arrives about these masks and who may have them for sale it will end up on this page as soon as i find out. I will e mail the site and send a picture of the TD mask with it to see if they can verify whether they have more stock or know of anymore being about.

In October 2011 many a fan headed out to get their new Deluxe versions, or Mask and Knife’ sets or just to see what was out there, in this case many a fan in the USA came across what was later nicknamed as an “Ultra White” mask which didn’t glow, over here in the UK i headed out to the local ASDA and found a new Glow type, a slight creamy colour to look at side by side with the new Ultra White! Also out there was the same as previous years, a Soft PVC type too, same shape and mold as the previous year and with a new GhostFace® logo tag!

” Newer molds at this time introduces us to the ASDA Glow and Ultra White types after Scream 4 had been and gone, these molds dont disappoint yet in the future we see alternate versions a year later.. ”

Collector’s Edition’s arrive for fans… One type being a “Limited Run” of 250!

Next we have a rare mask because there was only 250 made for the “Halloween Horror Nights” at Universal Studios in 2011… NOT FOR SALE anywhere! These masks consist of a slower production run with thicker material, a large hood, (similar to the Deluxe version, except much longer) and what RJ calls a “near perfect” mask!
These are sought after by fans who instantly want these, only a few have been sent to Wes Craven, TWC, and some lucky winners on Twitter who participated in a contest this site had, also other random Twitter members have received these.. Definitely “Hen’s Teeth” as there arent many and not in shops.. At the time of writing this RJ Torbert says more will be given away on Twitter at the right time!

Ghostface® Halloween Horror Nights Mask (HHN)


Item No. #93229 (On Deluxe Tag)

Material : Thick yet Soft PVC

Overall Length : 31cm (From top of mold to bottom of chin).

Stamp : On back of chin (© Easter Unlimited inc. Made in China)

Shroud : Black Cloth type material thicker than earlier version DLX masks. Longer shroud.

Smell : Vanilla Smell

Mouth Indent : 12cm

Tags : Dark Red New Ghostface® Tag Deluxe type (CE)

Quantity Made: 250 (Non Glow Types)  Store-Bought masks (Glow Types)  – Unknown amount…

(NOT ALL the 250 special run masks were numbered… very few have either biro or black marker inside stating a number… )

Glow: The ‘250’ limited run didn’t Glow, Where as the Store-Bought masks at Universal were GLOW types

Overall : A damn nice sturdy mask, paint is perfect, smell is beautiful, Hood sits nicely round the mask overall, on moving the mask itself its bendy but not much, these keep their shape excellently. This mask is a pleasure for any fan to have in their collections!

Random Facts: At the time of Universal having the HHN nights going on there were masks for sale in their shop, these masks were often mistaken for being HHN masks as used by the staff that were part of the 250 total, so just to clarify the masks in the shop were NOT the actual ones that fans thought they had, rumor also has it that the masks in store went for around $30, another fact that separates the two masks is that the limited 250 masks did NOT glow, where the Store bought masks DID!

Recent Fact: The ‘HHN’ is also used on the front cover of RJ’s new novel, The Face of Fear

Thanks: (Pictured above) HHN GhostFace mask #248
MASSIVE THANKS to RJ Torbert for this mask. A ‘Letter of Authenticity’ was also supplied by RJ.
These masks are nice to see in-front of you instead of just on pictures, consider yourself lucky if you have one.

Additional Info from RJ.. (also on the Ghostface page)
I guarantee you , since I was the one that had them made, only 250 SPECIAL MASKS were made for the promotion, I

sent 200 to universal, some to TWC for certain employees there, a few to WES Craven, and I have been giving some away on TWITTER here and there————–These masks have been either signed by me on the mask on the inside or on the bag depending on what the fans have wanted——I have a few left and will eventually give them away on twitter at the right time —–They are not available in stores, they consist of thicker material, and a slow production run to make them as perfect as possible.

It was my choice to make the SPECIAL EDITION for this promotion, ————-one to have a perfect mask at universal, and to have collector editions out there for some enthusiasm etc..

2012 New Arrivals

The Mummy mask was first introduced in RJ’s book, The Face of Fear.

Also the mask was only available at Spirit Halloween stores at first.

GhostFace® Cryptic/Gauze Mask

” This mask was basically uncommon to collectors because of its relatively low amount made, only by chance of a fan seeing these for sale that we knew of the masks presence and type.. ” gauzecrypticgfmask

Around September 2012 a fan found this mask on a ‘Haunted Hay Ride’ , this same fan said on the attraction itself there were old pictures which had the same type masks in the background that went back as far as 2006. On asking RJ Torbert about this mask he said he was surprised i had come across it, as it was made only for one year. A Total of 1000 pieces were made, none have been made since, making these mask’s rare now.

The masks found were from “Dracula’s Forest” Haunted Hayride in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, a fan called JT Mills came across the masks and proceeded to tell his friend, who was a lover of GhostFace masks too, this friend then posted up on a Scream forum about the masks.. What we didnt know was that JT Mills was the ORIGINAL finder of the masks.. so FULL CREDIT to this chap for coming across them and alerting his friend, it was after that time the friend sadly decided to get greedy and buy all the remaining stock and sell them for stupidly high prices.. the only thing that friend did right was to post pictures of the mask online asking about its type at the time and if anyone had seen the masks before..

To see the Dracula’s Forest you can Click HERE…. scroll down the page and you can see the Ghostface Gauze mask in the picture..THANKS to JT Mills for info.

GhostFace® Cryptic / GhostFace® Gauze

Identifying Facts.

Item No. #8517

Material: Soft PVC, (Brown cloth/gauze in the long shroud)

Overall length: Approx 29cm

Stamp: (T) Stamp – Easter Unlimited Inc. Made in China

Shroud: Thin Black Material similar to regular masks, also Mesh type brown Gauze cloth and Strands.
The shroud also is a lot more longer in length, with brown patches’ of colour randomly appearing on it.

Smell: No Smell

Glow: Yes

Mouth Indent: Approx 12.5cm (Smaller then the regular (T) Stamp mask’s)

Tags: Original Ghostface® Black & Red Tag with Yellow Star, with picture of Gauze GhostFace® Mask on the right.

Amount Made: 1000 for one store chain

Overall: The mask is a commonly made (T) Stamp which means the mold isn’t rare.. but the overall Gauze/Cryptic GhostFace® version is rare due to only having one chain have it and the fact that the amount was lower compared to normal.. As the tag states, its a Glow mask, it is unknown whether Non Glow versions are out there. But if its just 1000 made im assuming they were all the same, as a tag without the Yellow star hasn’t been seen. The fan who found the mask at the ride went back and got more, all had the Yellow star, he cleared them of stock, and sadly put them on Ebay for STUPIDLY high prices.. The mask’s were for sale around $10-$15, the lowest price i saw one go for was $61.. to Zakster..

The mask is basically the ‘Cryptic Creature’ Fun World mask, except with GhostFace® in the shroud instead of the skull type.. Click HERE to see the Cryptic Creature in a selection of 4 types..

GhostFace® Lorgnette Mask

” The Lorgnette is a smaller much lighter mask than any others out there due to there not being much to it, basically a black plastic stick with a foam mask ready for placement upon shy encounters.. “

Around 2010 was the time we first saw this mask appear, Fun World had made a few ladie’s GhostFace® costumes, which included ‘Poncho’, Hooded Dress, Long Dress, and Gown’ types.. with all of these except the ”Poncho’ we saw the Lorgnette Mask included. I have a mask myself as the mask’s are available as a stand alone type, as well as with the costumes.

Lorgnette GhostFace® Mask

Identifying Facts.lorgnette%20gf%20lgr

Item No. #93254

Material: Foam

Overall length: 26.5cm

Stamp: No Stamp, Inner label attached where black rod fixes on. MFG Date and details on label.

Shroud: No shroud, as its a ‘Lorgnette’ type.. Mask only

Smell: None

Mouth Indent: 11cm

Tags: New GhostFace® Logo Dark Red Tag

Overall: The mask comes with the GhostFace® ladies outfit’s.. it is a small foam mask with a black pole and black pieces of ribbon on the right hand side of the mask. It is extremely light and actually resembles the very common Black and Red tagged GhostFace® mask shapes mainly seen after Scream 3 in 2000. Just smaller.
The overall shape of the mask also somewhat resembles the one used on the Scream 4 poster, even though its a totally different type. Just by looking at the small image here you can see a similarity! In real life too the neat and compact shape shows a likeness to its ‘Walgreens’/ Re-Shoot Soft PVC types, although the eye edges are smooth here, on older WG/RS they can be ‘Edged’ and not curved.

Masks & Batteries

” Battery Powered items are everywhere, even in Ghostface masks, a new addition recently was a Ghostface Costume with ‘Eye Lights’ that glow up little Ghostface masks.. an old version is called a U V light up mask, also part of a costume released a while ago now” 

A long time ago (at least 2006) when the site came online i had been browsing to see what GhostFace costumes and mask’s were about, one that surprised me was seeing a couple of light-up mask’s , one being battery%20masks%20gfthe Color-Change type, and later this one listed here.. which was a kid’s mask with a Ultra Violet glow inside of it, there was a separate box to control the light that was handheld.

Years after that in 2012 a very strange version came which isn’t a GhostFace mask as we know them from before.. this one is a black polyester hood/mask with a GhostFace mask printed each side in the area of the eyes that is illuminated by a pair of glasses that light up that are worn underneath the hood.. thus lighting up the small GhostFace images.. also part of a Kid’s Costume..

Child light up UV Scream Costume.. Details below.. Link HERE

Costume includes hooded robe, belt, gloves, mask, with blue glow in the dark-light up controlled from hand.

GhostFace® Mask in Gold Hood

“Made as a test to see what the final product would come out like, the effect it created wasn’t what was wanted, so it remains the only one made..
Other mask colours were also tried… “

Many many masks have appeared before now, (Look at this page!) GhostFace has been made in lots of variations, but none in the Gold colour, With Fun World celebrating its 50th birthday RJ wondered what a classic Gold 50th Mask would come out like, he had one made and didn’t like the end result, which is why this mask remains one of a kind! The actual mask mold is the same as the 2012 and 2013 Metallic Masks, so we also get to see what that mold looks like without the Metallic paint, because it doesn’t exist as a Glow or Non Glow mask elsewhere. Or as any other type for that matter!

GhostFace® Gold Shroud Mask (Anniversary Tester Mask)

Identifying Facts.Gold%20mask%20signed

Item No. – – N/A

Material: White Soft PVC Mask

Overall length: 29cm

Stamp: © Easter Unlimited Inc. Made in China

Shroud: Thin Gold Spandex type Stretchy material

Smell: None

Mouth Indent: 12cm

Tags: – – N/A

Quantity Made: 1 (Gold Hood, White mask)
9 made (Gold on Gold)
1 made (Flesh Colour Mask)

Overall: Even though we wont see these for sale its a nice little mask, the hood type is beautiful being similar to the Deluxe types we have seen in recent years.. For the right occasion this could be a good add on for GhostFace, but sadly not officially or in big numbers.. If anything it just reminds me of the Gold GhostFace bust in the main lobby of Fun World. Which is no bad thing.

Additional Gold Hooded Types (Updated as of April 2015)
In recent time it was revealed by RJ Torbert that more ‘Experimental’ Gold Hooded types were also tried by him for the celebration of Fun World being 50 years old.. None of the types were ever decided on though… meaning NONE were ever released for sale in shops…. A ‘1 of 1’ Flesh Colour mask type was made, as well as a ‘Gold mask’ type in which only 9 were made… the ‘Gold on Gold’ type was only available at the 2015 Texas Frightmare Weekend… there were 5 available at the event…

The Flesh Colour mask has done some travelling in its time, once to the UK for an auction but it didn’t sell, so it went back to RJ, then RJ sent it out to a Greek fan for auction over there, and it still didn’t sell, so it went back to Fun World again, then upon sending a box to myself in the UK as a thanks for a charity donation RJ included the Flesh coloured mask as he knew i would give it a good home..

GhostFace® Mask (CE) Signed by RJ Torbert, Alan Geller, Stanley Geller, Wes Craven

“A Deluxe Mask signed by 4 main people involved with deals for GhostFace appearing in the Scream Movies.. ever since before SCREAM graced our screens these four main people were always involved behind signed1of6masksthe scenes.”

Here we have the mask which is one of six in existence signed by four very important and significant people throughout the life of the Scream movies so far… after looking at the mask and comparing it to the regular Deluxe type there are some differences, some of which seem similar to the (HHN) type and maybe even ‘Production Run’ types, with regards to paint job and quality, i honestly don’t know that for sure though unless i ever see a Production run mask in real life, but there are things similar to the (HHN) too.

This mask was given as a gift for work on this site, at the time of its first mention online it was John Valeri catching up with RJ Torbert in an interview about the GhostFace Sightings app which at the time was new to us fans, in that same interview it got towards the end that a giveaway was arriving for a lucky fan, that fan was myself, and that day online i went to Twitter and received many a Tweet saying things like ‘Congrats Tim’.. to which i was confused, on checking John’s latest article on his link i saw what everyone was on about. i was going to receive this damn nice mask for my work online with GhostFace and the site! Happy i was! Still am to this day.. There are only another 5 left sitting at Fun World. I did hear that some fans try to be clever and get the same people to sign their own masks, making the (1 of 6) or (Only 6 signed by….) no longer valid, but eyes were open and attention was paid to that very point and no others have the same peoples signatures to this day apart from the 6 in existence. Thankfully.

A Quote from RJ from John Valeri’s interview…
“The one constant has been the original four people since Scream 1 on usage and marketing/licensing has involved Stanley Geller, Alan Geller and myself and of course Wes Craven.”

GhostFace® Signed DLX Mask (1 of 6 Signed by RJ, Alan, Stanley & Wes)

Identifying Facts.

Item No. #93229

Material: White Soft PVC Mask (Thicker than normal DLX Masks)

Overall length: 32cm

Stamp: © Easter Unlimited Inc. Made in China

Shroud: Black clothy/Meshy material as seen on deluxe masks

Smell: Vanilla Smell

Mouth Indent: 13cm

Tags: Tags present on giveaway masks have varied, some had the older ‘Black and Red’ tag, others had no tag..
With the mask here there wasn’t no tag present, im guessing it would be a normal (CE) tag issue if anything.

Glow: Non Glow

Quantity Made: Not so much a limited quantity of this type made, its who had signed the mask which is 4 main people on only 6 masks out there. 5 of which are still at Fun World somewhere locked away. This is the only one ‘out’ in the world so to speak.

Overall: We have a nice Deluxe mask here signed by the main four people involved from day one in regards to the SCREAM movies, RJ Torbert, Alan Geller, Stanley Geller, and Wes Craven have all signed the mask.
Four key elements in the processes behind the scenes in getting all signed and sealed in regards to GhostFace getting on the big screen for each film. Even the KNB mask had to be approved in a deal to avoid copyright problems or issues. These four chaps were always involved during the time.

Other Features/Differences: On comparing this to a regular DLX Mask i see a few differences, the mask overall has much more of a shine to it, and on comparison the soft PVC is definitely thicker by at least a millimeter or two.. there are NO inner labels, or stamps or markings inside the mask, the sturdiness of the mask is also very similar to the HHN mask and is rigid compared to many other types made of the same materials.. There is also an elastic strap inside. As with many masks out there today.

GhostFace® Fade in & out mask” The mask brings back a fresh style to the ‘Battery Powered’ range of masks.. NEW for Halloween 2014 “2014 see’s a brand new arrival of a newer Battery powered mask, announced on February 7th 2014 by a fan of GhostFace and Scream movies.. That fan was given the privilege of this by RJ Torbert…
Basically like the same mold of the Bleeding masks except with lights in.

Overall: As the mask is brand new we dont know lots about it, although if it is the same main mold as the Bleeding mask, (and i suspect it will be) then its another type to tick off in that range… The mask isn’t alone in this Fade in & out category either as a Skull version is also on the Fun World item page..

Silver Latex Types – Rejected Masks 

Below we have a single picture of the type of mask that was actually rejected for the Silver 25 Year Chrome edition originally.. 5 Latex Silver masks were created as ‘Tester’ masks to see what the effect would come out like, the result wasn’t what was wanted, and so these types were rejected, and then the Silver Chrome Edition was created as it had the desired effect that Fun World were after, the difference being that these Silver Latex masks were like previous Metallic masks where manufacturing is concerned, and the Solid Plastic type allowed them to get the Chrome finish.


Devil Face Mask 2017
The Devil Face mask is NEW for 2017, it was first seen in RJ Torbert’s pictures he posted via twitter whilst at the 2017 Halloween Expo Show in New Orleans earlier this year… The mask was pictured in a regular hood style and also as a ‘ Bib Style ‘ mask, indicating what would come inside a Devil Face costume..
