Alterian Ghost Factory special effects artist, Loren Gitthens designed the iconic weeping ghost know known as Ghostface for a SFX industry Halloween party in 1989. It was his take on the classic kid's costume that uses a sheet to make a ghost. This costume would inspire a line of make-your-own ghost costumes called made by The Alterian Ghost Factory. The designs of the individual ghosts would later inspire Fun World to adapt them into their Fantastic Faces ghost mask line.

Restored photo plate from Fun World's photography department that was used for many years as a catalog photo and packaging image used first in 1997 after the huge success of Scream.
After the phenomenal success of Scream (1996), Fun World had their factories produce more scuptures of the original design, to make more molds, to keep up with the demand for increasingly iconic mask. Collectors have identified 17 similar, but subtly distinct sculpts, all with their own character. This is a mold cheat guide created by collectors, Jo and Wade Nobile
Scream (1996)'s costume designer, Cynthia Bergstrom's restored original design sketch for the now iconic Ghostface costume. After many meetings and tests and discussions, a sparkly black lurex fabric was ultimately used for the effectively disguising costume, which completely hid the body of the person wearing it, helping the mystery plot of the film work.
