We were drooling when these vintage paper Halloween costumes showed up on our framing table! These colorful guys were found inside of a 1953 Motorola television brochure featuring "Dick Tracy Comics" and "Popeye and Olive Oil." After some stealthy internet digging, we were able to find the original page from the brochure. Check it out!
We thought the instructions (which were still intact) were pretty rad, so we decided to fit them into the piece as well.
Keeping in mind that these guys were found in a vintage newspaper, we thought they would look best floating on an off-white mat with a solid black 1" frame, almost mimicking the newspaper style itself.
Once on the framing table, we were excited to give these pieces the showcasing they deserved after sixty years! With some quick trimming and fitting, they were already looking better than ever. We floated both masks on a piece of foam core to add a little dimension, almost as if they were coming to life right before our eyes!
When the finished product made its way upstairs, I think we were all giddier than the kids who found these tucked inside their newspapers sixty years ago. We fall in love with everything you guys bring us. Sometimes it's hard to see them go!
