I love masks but storage can become an issue.
I was on Spider Hilll's site a while back and noticed a fitting that was either new to their line or I had just missed previously. It's a slip cross fitting for 1 " PVC.

Inspired me to build this.

Here's a detail. Mounted on a wooden round from Home Depot with a SHPW flange.

Lower T in each set is fixed with a screw while upper one is free to rotate to allow for large or odd shaped masks.

uses 1 to 3/4' adapters elbows etc etc.
When you need a new view just spin it 90 degrees.
Planning on making at least one more.

Wow that's really nice! Thanks so much for sharing the photos. PVC--the Haunters friend!

For someone who had no masks when I started decorating, as I moved into wanting to add characters to my haunt apart from purchased props, I have enough masks now that how to store is more of problem. Also space on closet shelves has become a premium. This display idea is really great. If you wanted to cover the masks with something like a bag shape to help keep the dust off them, what would you use? Certainly don't want to have the "cover" stick or otherwise affect the mask over time. Leaving it open on the bottom would still allow air flow.

Hadn't thought too much about a cover. A giant pillowcase would be ideal. I've covered individual guitars on stands that way.

Maybe the cheapest painters fabric drop cloth would work or just a full size sheet.
