An iconic image from our favourite couple's Halloween episode ...

Free "Masques" cross stitch pattern


 This is a scaled down version of the Galactic Gallery pattern (itself derived from a Clare Sieffert painting). This one measures 100 X 78 stitches.
If made on 18 count (stitches to the inch) canvas, it would measure  5 1/2" X 4 1/4" (14 cm 10.5 cm). It uses 30 DMC floss colours.

Masques

And speaking of Masques, there's an undated, very irreverant review of the episode on  damper logo (click on icon)

To be fair, he (we assume the writer is male) doesn't say anything that B&B fans have not been saying for decades - including comments on the sequence shown at right. Question is, what would Vincent think?

The "Masques" episode, of course, was first released on videotape. Note that the cover image is an outtake - but a very nice one!

Some episodes were also released on laserdisc - a short-lived, expensive format from the early 1990s that created LP (i.e. vinyl record) sized discs and a needed an equally large and expensive player. Two episodes were issued on each laser disc. The format allowed big screen TV viewing for the first time.

This format was eventually superceded by the DVD - but not until several years later. The delay was because the big manufactuers couldn't agree on a format.

The wait for DVDs, for B&B fans, was excruciatingly long.
The DVDs were finally released in 2007 (Seasons 1 and 2)  and 2008 (Season 3).

A Halloween costume of ... who else?

Angie took on the challenge of Halloween and created a Vincent mask and costume in about a month.

The construction of the costume pieces is inspired by that used in the series costumes.

The mask is Celluclay papier mache built on a thick, white, blank paper mask found in a dollar store.

The wig was found in a thrift store's Halloween section.

All the clothing is made from thrift store garments:

- tunic is suede pieces whip-stitched together

- coat is a full-length lightweight wool/alpaca blend. Armholes, hood and front openings are trimmed with leather
. The sleeves were used to make the hood

- orange pants have pieced leather knee patches and thong ties

- the gauntlets are a colourful suede version of the ones Vincent wore in "Masques"

- boots were made from the sleeves of a suede jacket, decorated with dyed sheepskin scraps, sewn over a pair of snowmobile boot liners (with added leather soles)

- belt is manufactured of metal plates on an elasticated backing

- pouch is suede with an object inside (not a rose, alas)
