Halloween Post: A special Treat (No tricks)

Good evening, I have a special exhibition for this October night. There are some things that remind us of our youth and bring back memories of Halloween's long past. A certain magic was in the air on that autumn evening, and every time I see these next presentations, Those nights out in the cold come back to me. These were used as a window display along with the previous posts, Blow mold decorations and "Disco Witch".

Now this first piece is called "Jack O' Lantern Goblin" made by Beistle in the 1970's and was reissued this decade as a blacklight version. (This will be the blacklight version) In the 1980's it was reimagined as a pumpkin goblin with a witch hat. There was a series of goblins that were issued including, Witch Goblin,  Skeleton Goblin, and Jack O' Lantern  Goblin.

(some of you may recognize this decoration from "Halloween 3")

This next decoration is a Large Bat that is about 30" inches across and glows well under a blacklight. It is unknown which company issued this bat.

And now I will present my pumpkin mask from Hallmark stores, it was released as a series of masks in about 1984. The masks were : Vampire, Vampiress, Pumpkin, and Skull.

I have repainted this mask to be blacklight reactive, as the original paint was not in good shape.
