So, it's been years since I've actually sat down and watched Spider-Man, the Toby Maguire film, and I got to thinking... Do they ever actually show where Norman's mask comes from? I remember where he gets the suit from, but not the mask.

We don't know.

At least I don't think it's ever revealed. He obviously took the Goblin suit from Oscorp and discarded the original helmet in favour of the new, scary, goblin one - but to my knowledge it's never shown where he got this helmet from.

I know he had the mask out in the house at multiple points. I could've sworn I saw other masks, too - like it was part of an art collection or something. – Clockwork-Muse May 23 '14 at 13:00
@Clockwork-Muse: I recall something similar. I think when he goes into his little secret place, they are lining the walls or something - but we never see where he gets them from. – Andrew Martin May 23 '14 at 13:01
No, I meant different styles of masks - like something that belonged to African tribesmen, etc. – Clockwork-Muse May 23 '14 at 13:04
@Clockwork-Muse: No I got what you meant. He had a few masks (of which the goblin mask could have been one). It did look like a collection. I just meant that, unlike the suit which we know came from Oscorp, we don't know about the masks, that was all. – Andrew Martin May 23 '14 at 13:05
