The Glow Challenge

The Glow Challenge is a new tradition in the Fun Tyme community that emerges from collectors hunting complete collection of Ghosts, Skulls, Phantoms, and Ghouls. With more collectors participating every year, we've outlined parameters for ranking in this impressive feat below.

The Ranked Achievement

We honor collectors who have completed the challenge to the highest standard with a numerical ranking and pinned post in our Facebook group. It is an immense accomplishment that requires great dedication to the most historically significant vintage mask qualities from the original era and run for each character. Though cotton shroud era characters are required for this challenge, polyester era characters (Viper, Fang, Steve, Grim, Open-Mouth) are acknowledged as a bonus. The guidelines for the ranked achievement are as follows:

  • Shrouds must be cotton

  • Vinyl must glow-in-dark

  • Stamps must be standard (no MK or HN factory variants)

  • Masks must be authentic and original (no replica cotton shrouds)

#1 - Wade Elibon - January 23, 2023 Here is my complete fleet of black cotton shroud glow-in-dark Fun World masks from 1992-1997. Every character from the Ghost, Skull, Phantom, and Ghoul line accounted for. This is the first time they have been fully assembled as what would have come on Fantastic Faces header cards. As an admin, collector, and nostalgic this is a proud achievement for me.

#2 - Jo Nobile - August 31, 2023 Look at those fantastic faces… They’re all here! Every cotton-shrouded-character made from 1992 - 1997. When I started collecting vintage Fun World years ago, I never could have imagined what it would become. It’s been a journey.


The Celebration Achievement

We would like to acknowledge members who have also completed The Glow Challenge outside of the quality standards required to earn a ranking. We celebrate the dilligence of those who have amassed this wonderful collection of all eras and qualities. The guidelines for the celebration achievement are as follows:

  • Masks may be any mold type

  • Vinyl may be glow or non-glow

  • Shrouds may be cotton, polyester, or alternative (i.e. All-in-One, Droop Collar, or Instant Disguise)

  • Masks must be authentic vintage masks
