A wonderful full head tiger mask... and quite formal with a top hat. The perfect accessory for a Masked Ball, Cosplay, or just something to wear to the door on All Hallows' Eve to meet the children... bwaahahahahaaaa... I love Halloween!
This tiger-with-a-top-hat mask is large enough to fit an adult, as you can see by my model. I purchased it privately from a costumer in Los Angeles in 1985, and it was vintage then. It has been in my personal collection ever since. It was custom made at Santa Cruz Costumes, marked inside. Handwritten labels are standard in costumes made for the entertainment industry. I wonder where it was originally worn... I never asked.
The professional hand stitching is testament to the fine craftsmanship of Southern California's custom costume shops. I think the ears are particularly cute, they can wiggle back and forth (very high quality with specialty details like this). Exceptionally crafted and durable. The neck pieces hang down and will wrap around your neck and tuck into your collar or neckline for a furry finish.
CONDITION - This full head tiger mask is very well made and generally in clean and excellent used condition, with one small worn spot on the lining inside.
So if you've been wondering what you might wear this year (or for many years to come), take one unique tiger-with-a-top-hat mask, optionally mix in one tuxedo, and... Voila!... you've got yourself a winner. Grrr...
