This unique masquerade-style mask blank grants you the eight-eyed visage of an enormous spider! The two main eye holes are completely round, and additional eyes are incorporated as part of the design, cast in resin on either side of the face. The face is sculpted to look as though it is covered in fur, right down to the pair of chelicerae and two folded fangs at the bottom. If you’re a lover of arachnids and want to make an impression with a truly unusual mask, try this creepy creature on for size.
This mask has a nice roomy, wide profile to fit as wide a variety of faces as possible. Please see the photo below showing the measurement at the narrowest point to make sure it’ll be a good fit for you.
All of my resin masks start out as an original sculpture created in oil-based clay. I make a mold of the original using silicone rubber, and then cast it in impact-resistant resin. This stuff is quite tough, though I obviously don't recommend treating your mask roughly.
These mask blanks come just as you see them in the photos - a raw, blank piece cast in white resin. This is a do-it-yourself piece, meaning it's up to you to finish, paint, and assemble it however you'd like. You'll need to provide an elastic strap or other means to hold the mask on, and some felt or foam padding so you can wear it comfortably. The mask comes with a guide providing helpful hints and tips on how to set up your mask to be worn and how to paint it. I'm also available to answer questions, so please don't hesitate to send me a message.
IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE: While my masks are made from impact-resistant materials to keep them from shattering, they are NOT rated to protect the wearer during sports, motorcycle riding, or other dangerous activities. They will not take the place of an appropriate helmet. Stay safe out there!
Do your mask and prop blanks come with instructions? What kinds of paints/glues work best with them?
I send a guide along with each purchase with tips on how to paint your mask or prop, what kinds of glues to use, and more. The two general guides can be viewed below, but some masks kits also have a more specific guide of their own.
I'm sorry, but my schedule doesn't allow time for me to take commissions or custom projects, including custom paint jobs. I am happy to take suggestions, but I cannot guarantee what you're looking for is something I will end up making.
I recommend checking out the Cosplay Commissions group on Facebook - You can request quotes on costume pieces you're looking to have made, and it's a very active group. It's a closed group, but if you hit the Join button one of the admins will let you in.
Will you attach a strap to a mask blank for me?
It's best to paint your mask prior to attaching the strap, so I don't offer them with the straps already installed. The strap just gets in the way during the painting process, especially priming.
Can you make lower jaws for your skull masks?
Masks with attached lower jaws or moving jaws must be made to accommodate them from the start, such as my lizardman masks. My skull masks and other half-face masks are meant to be worn as masquerade-style masks and are not set up for having a moving or attached lower jaw.
Can I attach horns (or other items) to my skin with spirit gum?
My cast resin horns, fangs, and other such items are meant as embellishments for props or masks, and weren't made with the intention to be attached directly to skin as a prosthetic. It may be possible to apply some of the lighter pieces to the skin with spirit gum, but I have not tried this and can't guarantee the results.
Do you still sell turian masks?
No, sorry. The turian masks were discontinued at the end of 2017.
Only logged in customers who have purchased this product may leave a review.
Many of my pieces - mask blanks, horns, props, and other items - are made-to-order. When I receive an order for a made-to-order item, it goes in a queue to be cast, cleaned, and shipped in the order I received it.
Made-to-order items in the shop generally have a turnaround time of 14 business days (2 weeks). Some more complicated pieces, like the lizardman mask kits, have a turnaround time of 21 business days (3 weeks).
An expedited processing upgrade is an additional fee added to all eligible made-to-order items in your shopping cart. When I receive an order with expedited processing, I complete that order outside of my normal working hours so as to send it out sooner than normal.
How do I request expedited processing?
Add the item or items you want to your Shopping Cart. If the order is eligible for expedited processing, you will see an Add Expedited Processing checkbox along with the price and processing time.
Please note that if I am already working on an expedited order for other customer, the option may not be available. The nature of expedited orders means that I can only realistically handle a small number at a time. Please check back the next business day.
How long does an expedited order take?
Most expedited ship within 5 business days (business days being every day except Sundays and USPS postal holidays), but some more complicated items take longer. You can see the processing time for your specific order next to the Add Expedited Processing checkbox in the Shopping Cart.
When you click Add Expedited Processing, your order total will be updated and the processing time will display the date by which your order will ship.
Please note - Adding expedited processing decreases the processing time, not the shipping time! Once shipped, USPS shipping times apply. USPS First Class may take up to 10 days, USPS Priority typically arrives in 1-3 days. DUE TO CUSTOMS PROCESSING, INTERNATIONAL ORDERS MAY TAKE UP TO 8 WEEKS REGARDLESS OF SHIPPING TYPE.
