'GRINNING SKULL' GHOST
The grinning skull ghost was added to the line up after the success of the #9206 - Glow in the Dark Ghost Mask with Shroud line up. It was released in mid 90s in glow pvc on black shrouds and white cotton shrouds. Its big teethy grin and tiny nose holes differentiate it from other styles. It has never been found in fluorescent colors like the other designs, however two authentic white shrouded mask have surfaced. It could also be found cataloged with a sewn on gown costume for item #9223 - All-in-One Ghost Mask & Gown Costume seen with the face painted over with white paint by the factory. These original masks came on Fantastic Faces header cards which featured a pink gradient and colorful party orbs.
In the late 90s, the mask was continued in the #9206 'Glow' line, now dawning stretchier polyester shrouds and a more Halloween themed header card with Fun World's new 'bat & moon' aesthetic and the new horror inspired moniker 'Fearsome Faces'. Masks from this era excite many who remember the scented additive that gave them a particular vanilla aroma.
The design was phased out in the early 2000s.
