31 Monster Toys #16: Fiend Without A Face

October 16th, 2013

Today’s entry isn’t a mass-produced toy. My old friend David Lady is a monster mask maker and collector who for many years turned his own home into a Halloween attraction called “Horror Hotel” and, oddly enough, simultaneously served as mayor of the village of Chatfield, Ohio. When I knew him back in the mid ’80s, he had marketed an entire line of handmade masks and, for a time, some horror-themed props such as the little guy seen above.

I don’t know if it had an official name, but it was loosely based on the brain creatures seen in the 1958 British sci-fi film Fiend Without a Face. This one is decidedly more friendly in appearance, and has never once attempted to strangle me with its spinal cord.
