This is the companion blog to my book, out in October of 2015. Anything Halloween-related that I find interesting I'll put here.

Masks and costumes! They go hand in hand in hand with Halloween. Here's a group of masks, very Ben Cooper-like. I can't verify whether they are in fact Ben Cooper. Wouldn't surprise me.
And of course, there's a scary clown mask in there. Gotta have that, right?
Then there's a Rubie's "Corpse" mask from 1985. I talk a little bit about Rubie's in the book--they're a large company that ended up buying not only the Ben Cooper company but the Collegeville company who also made masks.
I owned a mask very much like this. I keep an eye out for the mask I actually had, but have never seen it since roughly 1983. Apparently it was pretty freaking rare...
