THE SKULL by mister-bones THE SKULL by mister-bones
based on the original topstone halloween mask add designs of the early 50's.
a lesser known, and under appreciated style of horror art you ask me.
wish i knew who made them.
this is the first in a series.

By now Mr. Bones you know I have quite a few of the original Topstones.
But a bit of trivia The "Skull" was the foundation for the Shock monster they just sculpted right over the master.
Left the crack added an eye same teeth etc.
Where the hell have you been? We miss you .

That's funny - even before I read your comment on this one I thought to myself... that looks just like a very cheap rubber skull mask I had in the 5th Grade. That was during the 80's though, not the 50's... Perhaps it was just a cheap re-molding of an old classic!

hahahaha yeah, topstone started in the late 50's and went on til the early 90's, they were cheap as shit so they used the original molds for years.
and nows its just POOF, were gone.
i wish they still had a net site.
you can find some of there stuff on ebay but thats about it.
i never did got one of there masks, but i have an ass load of old comics with the original adds!

im looking forward to doing my rendition of the "china man" lets see were the comments take me with THAT one..
