Mask/prop connoisseurs and collectors will know how rare and sought after the original Don Post'Halloween 3' Pumpkinhead masks are, so I'll skip right to the relevant specifics of my own personal specimen. I was given this mask many years ago by the great Tom Burman who did the special make-up fx on the film (and also did my creature and transformation fx for the MGM film'The Beast Within' in which I played the leading role of Michael). Fortunately, knowing how pours as thin and flimsy as these would age and decay over time, I had the mask expertly foamed (complete with display post) many years ago to preserve the integrity of the latex.And indeed there is zero rot or deterioration. Unfortunately, the chalky, matte-finish fluorescent "day-glo" orange and green paint which marks these masks as the real deal, also has a fragile aspect which led to some unavoidable flaking over time.
But the condition of my mask is exactly as it was when Tom gave it to me in the 1980's. Other than when it was foamed, the mask was never displayed but, instead, has been kept out of sunlight, safe in a box in climate-controlled storage until I removed it recently to photograph and sell it. Those who have seen'Halloween III: Season of the Witch' will recall the hundreds of Witch, Skull, and Pumpkin masks on racks and mobile carts in Conal Cochran's sinister mask factory (in reality, the actual Don Post Studios), and this original'Pumpkinhead' is one of the masks used in those on-camera sequences.
