Illusive Concepts - Universal Studios Monster Masks

Mario Chiodo's Illusive Concepts released the company's first round of the Universal Studios Monster Masks in 1991. Illusive Concepts would release more Universal Monster Masks over the next several years of varying design and quality.

These masks were quite large in size, and thicker than any mass produced masks on the market at the time, and possibly ever produced. The sculptures were very impressive, although the paint schemes were sometimes questionable.
Aside from appearing in the White Zombie video for "More Human Than Human", the Creature from the Black Lagoon pictured in this ad is my personal favorite mass produced Creature mask. Here's a pic of my Creature that I scored back in '94 and touched up the eyes and mouth:
