Creepy Easter Bunnies

Is it wrong that I began the Easter weekend by searching for creepy Easter Bunny pics? I suspected there would be an abundance of results, however, I underestimated the creep factor. Happy Easter sheesh...

Early 1960's Don Post Catalog

Greetings Creeps! This scan of this early 1960's Don Post Catalog comes courtesy of fellow mask collector jupiter2. There is no date on the catalog, but I think it predates 1963. The line-up shares some of the same masks from the previous early 60's catalog that was posted earlier this year, but also has some obvious differences too...

These are some of the best shots you'll find of these early Don Post monster masks (click to enlarge)...

Don Post Captions Masks

While these hardly classify as "monster" masks, they are still Don Post Studios' creations, and potentially still worth documenting. These odd-ball masks were not available through the regular DPS catalogs, but rather could be found  in the 86-87 Morris Costumes catalog...

Monsterpalooza 2014

Once again, Monsterpalooza was a simply amazing show. The quality of the work in the room is jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring. It seriously boggles the mind that there were so many talented monster makers all under one roof. However, for me, the highlight of the show is the people. It was great to see old friends again, and meet a few new ones along the way. The only regret was not being able to stay longer, and see more. I was in and out in just 48 hours, and missed the entire third day of the show. Alright, in full transparency, there's one more regret... I took some pretty bad photos this year. Most were blurry. I should have known better from last year's 'Palooza, and brought a real camera with me.

Fortunately, there were some folks there who did take some great shots, and have already begun to post them online. I ran into this excellent photo gallery on Monster Mayhem of the Monsterpalooza Museum posted by the Maskahuna.

Here are the small handful of shots that I'll share. Even most of these are slightly blurry, but better than nothing at all. So here is a mini recap of the show...
