How many of you collect masks and never wear them?

I collect a lot of various masks. from vintage topstones and dps to slasher masks and anywhere in between but i just display them for the most part. so i was just thinking. does thee mask hobby mainly collect solely on displays or do a lot of you guys also wear the masks that you own for halloween and parties?

Ding Ding. I'm with you. All my stuff are for display only. That's why I get them foam filled.

I mainley just display mine as well... I've tried the ones that are wearable on once or twice to take pictures, but they just t on my shelf 99.9% of the time for show... I might wear 1 or 2 on halloween like the goul said, but other then that, just display...

i usually display them but im anal about having to be able to at least wear them if i own them. that doesn't mean that i use them but for some reason i have to have that one shot of me in the mirror with every mask i own.

There is one mask that I wear on Halloween, but the rest are strictly for display only.

To me they are just like any collectibles, and I want to do everything I can to ensure that they will be around for a long time.

I get a lot more enjoyment from looking at them than I do from wearing them.

Personally, I think wearing a mask is about as much fun as rapping your head in cellophane.

Display only...and sometimes for freaky sex games;)

For the most part, I am a display only type of guy. I do buy mass produced masks though so that I can wear those from time to time. noggin is just too flipping big to wear any of them.

take care, Tommy

I used to wear my masks all of the time and take many pics. Over the past year, however, I don't put them on as much and have been looking for more display masks.

For the most part just display.

I have one or 2 that I'll actually wear for a bit on Halloween, mainly my NAG H78, though occaonally I will put on the Psycho.

Most of the rest of my collection though has never been put on.

My head's just too damn big for most of them

The masks I wear maybe once or twice for a picture but overall I prefer they stay as display pieces. I worry way to much about them not lasting even after doing everythign I am needing to do to clean and protect them. I don't mind wearing my hock or mass produced stuff usually as I buy them just for that.

Display only. I've tried on my NAG 78, but just to see how it felt.

Mine are mostly display, mainly cuz I've always hated wearing masks.

And I always forget how huge my head is until I actually try to put on a mask

The only one I have that I wear is my SPFX zombie...everything else I own is display only.

I like wearing mine, but they do t on display most of the time.

I usually don't buy a mask unless I can wear it
