The partnership will see Disguise create Pop! Masks for collectors and Halloween fanatics.
Disguise Inc, the global costume design and manufacturing company, will design, market, manufacture and distribute Pop! Masks in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Oceania, South America and Asia from this year.
Initial designs for 2021 will feature iconic characters from licensors including Warner Bros., and Sony Pictures Entertainment. The masks will capitalise on the instantly recognisable aesthetic of Pop! They are designed to be wearable and displayable, with limited runs of each style to drive collectability.
In 2022, Disguise will expand the line with fresh styles from additional licensors with more than 30 new styles.
Tara Hefter, president and gm of Disguise Inc, commented: “Disguise is thrilled to be partnering with Funko on a truly break-frame product like our wearable Pop! Masks. The iconic Funko’s Pop! style translates to a really fun wearable product for cosplay and dress up occasions. We know Funko fans and Halloween lovers will jump at the opportunity to wear, collect and display our new Pop! Masks.”
Jason Bischoff, director of global licensing, Funko, added: “We’ve spent years building up our business around fan-first collectability, community and affordability. Pop! Masks are born from that same tradition, and just like our other products, Pop! Masks can be celebrated year-round.
“It’s another massive opportunity for fans to wear or display their fandom and connect with their fellow pop culture enthusiasts.”
Disguise’s Pop! Masks are now available for pre-order on Amazon in North America and Europe and will be available later this year on Funko.com. They will also be available in Australia, New Zealand and LATAM this autumn.
