Disguise, Inc., world leader in costume design and manufacturing, announced a global agreement and innovative collaboration with Funko, the leading pop culture consumer products company, to design, market, manufacture and distribute Pop! Masks™ in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Oceania, South America, and Asia commencing in 2021. Initial designs for 2021 will feature iconic characters from top licensors like Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
The oversized masks capitalize on the iconic 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.
“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,” said Tara Hefter, President and GM of Disguise, Inc.
“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,” said Jason Bischoff, Director of Global Licensing for Funko.
Disguise is a world leader in design and development of inventive and cutting-edge costumes and accessories with distribution across the world.
