The origin of the Ghostface mask was pure luck – GeekTyrant

Do you ever wonder how certain iconic looks are made? From Michael Myers’ dead forehead mask, to Freddy’s hat and striped shirt, there are some costume choices that were custom designed for the characters. For Ghostface, not so much.

While we knew the concept was to make the mask mimic the famous Edvard Munch painting, “The Scream”, one of the characters on the cover of the Pink Floyd album “The Wall” and the ghostly characters that appeared up in the 1930s “Betty Boop” cartoon, we now know that the infamous mask was not designed by anyone associated with the film.

In fact, it was purely coincidental during a locality scout that the mask was found at all. Found in a box of things in a garage, the mask was brought back to make something similar to it. But after many failed attempts, they finally decided to just get the rights to use the mask.

The decision by Fun World to let them wear the mask was probably one of their best decisions, as they still own the rights to what is now the most worn and sold Halloween costume in the United States.
