Bowie Halloween Mask

on October 19, 1999
    A portrait of Bowie appears on the cover of Flaunt magazine's October issue. But this is not just any portrait, nor is it just any cover.

    It is a self-portrait, AND it is a cut-out to be used as a mask for Halloween (complete with different size eye-holes). Truly gives new meaning to the phrase "Trick-or-Treat"!
