Trick or Treat Studios

Trick or Treat Studios is well known in the horror industry. They have been featured in several magazines. One magazine in particular, HorrorHound Magazine. HorrorHound recently done a two page article on Trick or Treat Studios. Trick or Treat Studios is widely known for their realistic collectible horror masks. They are considered the best mask company in the world. Once you see a mask in person, you'll know it's Trick or Treat Studios.

Trick or Treat Studios offers high quality Halloween masks, costumes, props, weapons, makeup and accessories for retailers, collectors and haunts. With unique characters, monsters and major licenses from comics and film, Trick or Treat Studios is the go to company for the best in Halloween. Their mask are also affordable. $40-60 will get you a nice realistic collectible mask. Compared to $300+ on the net.

Incorporated in 2009, Trick or Treat Studios is dedicated to bringing back the retro / classic look and feel from the Golden Age of masks making, an era when high quality and classic designs ruled the industry.

All of their products are 100% hand made, which includes sculpting, molding, casting, cutting, painting, and hairing, making each product a unique piece of art.

Trick or Treat Studios design and production team includes the best designers from motion pictures, special effects and animation. Our designers are world renown and have been the recipients of countless awards. Combine the artistic talent with a top business management team and the best production company in the world, with over 50 years of experience, and you get the highest quality products in the costume industry.

Last year, the wonderful folks at Trick Or Treat Studios produced what is, in my humble opinion, the finest Michael Myers mask that has ever been mass-produced. There was two different versions produced. Halloween II: Regular Michael Myers and Halloween II: Michael Myers Blood Tears.
Rumor has it that the gang at Trick or Treat Studios are working to acquire the license to make masks for Halloween III: Season of the Witch. For those not in the know, HIII is known as "the one without Michael Myers". The original idea was to do a series of stand-alone horror films, all set at Halloween, that wouldn't connect to each other in any way other than being about the holiday.
Paper Magic has now sold off their costume division, along with their Don Post imprint, so now the rights for their licenses may be up for grabs! Trick Or Treat Studios has proven themselves to be a major player in the mask business, producing some of the best masks on the market right now. They have a wide variety of original and licensed properties, and they've already proven themselves to the fans of the Halloween franchise.

Justin was honored as Latex Mask Central’s Top Halloween Mask Maker.  He is also a frequent contributor to HorrorHound Magazine.

One of the things I look forward to every year is the unveiling of new Halloween masks from Trick or Treat Studios, who have consistently been churning out quality offerings for the last several years.  2012 saw the release of the most incredible mass-produced Michael Myers mask we've ever seen, and last year a slew of new ones were unloaded on us, including Gunther from The Funhouse and an alien invader from They Live.  What's in store for us in 2014?  Though Halloween is too far away to even really think about, we were excited to discover that the company has already begun teasing this year's releases, over on their Facebook page!

The previews began on January 5th, and Trick or Treat Studios has been unveiling a brand new one every day, which will likely continue until they've all been shown off.  Thus far, a Dr. Decker mask from Nightbreed has been revealed along with the exciting first additions to their newly acquired Evil Dead 2 and Walking Dead licenses, which will allow us to dress up as a possessed Ash Williams, the lovely Henrietta and even the bloated 'Well Walker' from AMC's hit show.
Check out all of the photos, and be sure to keep your eyes locked on the Trick or Treat Studios Facebook page, where new masks will be revealed each day.  You can find their Facebook page here. The company has also scooped up licenses for Halloween 3, Day of the Dead, Saw and Killer Klowns From Outer Space, so it's looking like 2014 is gonna be a great year for Halloween masks!
