First up we have two similar masks, including photos of them in the making. Here are the infamous
"Warhead"™ and "Broccoli Man"™
The nuclear mushroom cloud head came first and people made fun of it looking like broccoli before it

Oh yah, that's Broccoli Man serving beef'n'broccoli chili at a chili cook-off. Click here to see more of Broccoli Man™.

The plecostomus teaching class is the oldest pictured here, around 1979. What's a "plecostomus" you say, and why did I make a costume of one? It's a suckermouth catfish common in aquariums and I get crazy ideas sometimes (see broccoli head above). The red guy is Reddy Kilowatt, used during the '30s-'60s to advertise electricity. Reddy is still in use today in some areas.
If you wait, you will hear part of "Broken Head" by Cluster
