By 1995, Don Post Studios was in charge of all the development of the masks and costumes for The Great Cover Up. The style of the masks closely mirrored that of the 1995 DPS line-up.

Joe Reader's House of Horror Studios responsible for creating some incredibly detailed and original masks and hands during the mid to late 80's. I have little information on the company itself, but a thread still exists on the HMA with some nice pictures of HoH masks. Thanks go out to the Maskahuna for sharing these 1986 catalog scans. Stay tuned for some additional House of Horror Studios catalog scans coming soon...

1963 Don Post Studios Brochure

This four-page promotional brochure has some wonderful images of early Don Post Studios masks, including the Hollywood Horrors line, as well as Don Sr., Verne Langdon, and several popular personalities of the time. Forgive the excessive watermarking on these images.

A HUGE thanks goes out to Matt Post for sharing these scans of a truly rare piece of early Don Post Studios history...
