My Etsy store is being built. this will be where you can purchase from a new line of Halloween, LARPing, and cosplay masks. They will be made to be adjustable and have options when ordering so you get closer to the look you want without the cost of a custom mask. Primarily Fantasy based themes but some horror monsters will be made in the future.
This is an old film shot on super 8mm. Stop Motion short: Bustopher Jones in Concert. Originally filmed at Bakersfield High School Art Department 1995. Made possible by Norma Savage and Phillip Colasanti. Sculptures, set design, and filming Erick Main. Edited by William Main and Erick Main. Voices Erick Main. Re-mastered 9/27/2012.

I started casting the mask on sunday. I started around 10am and finished around 8pm. It was wonderful to get back to my old love of monster making. The process went farely well. I just cant find my plaster rasp so the opening will be held up till tonight. Here are some pictures of this part of the mold making process.
