The melty 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 the mid 90s in glow soft pvc on black shrouds and white cotton shrouds. Its drippy melting face, a bit more scary than its cohorts, differentiates it from other styles. It has never been found in fluorescent colors like the other designs, however only one authentic white shrouded mask has 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.

As one of the more successful designs, it was not phased out until the 2010s. It was last seen in a non-glow white pvc material.
