A poem by Randy Aines (themyers1978)
Do you remember Halloween?
The leaves turned orange and brown
These things are not as dear to some
But don't let that get you down
This night lives inside our hearts
We're the ones who keep it alive
Each Halloween, we do our part
Carving pumpkins with a bloody knife
We're the ones who believe in monsters under the bed
We're the ones who care
We're the ones with blissful darkness in our heads
We're the ones who dare
We thrive on fear, and fear thrives on us
While others scream, we laugh in delight
We are all one with this darkest night
Part of Halloween lives inside us all
And part of us lives in the creepy Fall
And a little something for the Mayhem Halloweekend
The leaves are falling, gently calling
The wind is howling, fiercely scowling
The full moon lights the way
Summer night fades to Autumn day
Pumpkins are ready for carving
Goblins and werewolves are starving
Demons are ready to roam the night
Witches await their fateful flight
The air is filled with sound
Of evil laughter all around
This is the night we've all been waiting for
Ghouls and goblins knock upon your door
You give a treat in fear of the trick
Fearful creatures take their pick
Spirits of the dead dance in celebration
Nobody dares break this ancient tradition
We all rejoice tonight, on All Hallow's Eve
The "Vintage75" is an original sculpt that began in February 2012 and was started by clay pressing the Shatner lifecast. The goal was to make WMP's most accurate Kirk mask to date.
We had many sculptors on this project (four in all), including Kevin Murphy, Luke Sawh, and finally Amy Wieck. We used as many photos of the original Kirk mask as possible so that we didn't miss any detail. We also used the "Sean Clark Small 75" as reference for some of the details. While Sean Clark mask itself is small (approx 15" around), it does show all of the great details of a Kirk.
WMP documented the entire sculpt process on our message board here: http://wickidmasks.com/board/chris-morgan-wmp-workshop/5429 Through the entire sculpt, we looked to the community for feedback and comments.
After a long 15 month wait, WMP is pleased to unveil the VINTAGE75 to the public. We will begin taking orders at Noon (eastern time zone) on May 2, 2013.

Hey everyone! We thought that we'd update you with some information about our latex and put some of the rumors, lies, and misunderstandings to rest...
We've been getting reports and questions from concerned customers that some "well respected members" of the community have been bad-mouthing and spreading slanderous untrue rumors about the quality of WMP latex. For those of you who have purchased a mask from us since August 2012 you can help vouch for the creamy, buttery, almost flawless latex that our masks have.
Many of you know, last summer, (August of 2012) we purchased a 55 gallon drum of latex from a company in Ohio. This is the same company that HSS and NightOwl purchase their 55 gallon drums of latex from. Once it arrived, it was quite a challenge getting this almost 500lb barrel from our driveway where the driver dumped it off, to our back yard. Our ground is very sandy and the wheels of our dolly sunk into the sand pretty far. We ended up using strips of plywood and "leap frogged" them one behind the other all the way around to the back of our house. I'm sure the neighbors had quite a laugh at our expense!
Prior to August 2012, WMP had been doing our best to locate a reliable source for latex. Since we began in 2010 latex has gone up 50% or more depending on the time of the year and available supply. Despite the rise in materials cost and postage/shipping, we've done our best to keep the cost of our masks the same.
