I just recently finished my new griffon mask. Because the molds I make are soft, the original sculpture is often left intact. Normally, once I’ve done a test cast and verified that the mold is good, the sculpture gets destroyed and the clay recycled to use again! But I’ve been wanting to do a raptor skull, and there’s the shape just waiting for me.
As you can see in the photo comparing the two masks, I didn’t want the new mask to be too similar to the griffon I just finished, so the changes were fairly extensive. Even the shape of the beak ended up rather different, thinner and with a more pronounced hook at the end.
Blanks of both new masks are now available in the shop!
I created the first version of my lizardman mask back in 2014, and – to put it lightly – I have learned a bunch about maskmaking, molding, and casting since then! There is now a brand new lizardman mask kit available.
For those who were waiting, thank you very much for your patience. 🙂
I painted one of my big cat skull masks to resemble yellowed bone, complete with black eye and nose mesh to disguise the wearer. I love this look for my skull masks, simple yet incredibly creepy and effective all at once!
New mask! This is one of Robbie’s painted works. It’s a chimera cat, an unusual color pattern where the kitty’s genes cause half of their face to be one color, half another. The most famous is a lovely cat called Venus, but there are a number of kitties like this. Often even their eyes are different colors!
I just finished this lovely critter, one of my dragon mask blanks painted to resemble aging copper with a green patina forming in the detail work. The mask has an adjustable strap and padding already installed, so it’s ready to wear right out of the box.
This copper dragon mask is available from our Etsy costume shop. If you want to paint your own, I’ve got these too:
Hello hello! See? I told you you wouldn’t have any problems!
Did…uh… did Foxy ever appear in the hallway? Probably not. I was just curious. Like I said, he was always my favorite. They tried to remake Foxy, you know? Uh, they thought the first one was too scary, so they redesigned him to be more kid-friendly and put him in Kid’s Cove. To keep the toddlers entertained, you know. But kids these days just can’t keep their hands to themselves. The staff literally had to put Foxy back together at the end of every shift. So eventually they just stopped trying and left him as some kind of “take apart, put back together” attraction. Now he’s just a mess of parts. I think the employees refer to him as just “The Mangle.”
