    Hey guys, so this is a project I've been really wanting to do for the past couple months now and have been working on each night.

    So a little over a year ago I created my haunted mask replica from goosebumps which actually became my top selling mask.

    Since then I've made so much progress sculpting wise and have made so many copies of these that, each time, I noticed little things that just didnt sit well with me about some of the forms. So I decided I would get the best reference material possible and really make the definitive version of the haunted mask!

    Here is the initial turn around;

    rough comparison of both sculpts, previous on left, new on right;

    The thickness and dynamics of the forms, i.e; cheek bones, brows, cranium shape and size ect. really became noticeable to me and I wanted to really make them as close to the original as possible.

    Will be taking some pics after each sculpting session and posting until complete! Thanks for looking!

    The haunted mask was a huge part of my childhood, I will be watching very closely here! It looks great so far.

    The Cain Productions version that TOTS is now making was really good but felt there were a couple things off about it like the mouth being to small.

    Thanks guys! So here is where i am currently with the sculpt;

    Mc4Ae6I.jpg

    Still things I see that need to be changed, jaw needs to be a bit more curved and thicker, need to refine the nose a bit and make around the lips a bit more, but coming along well.

    Ive also made some resin teeth as an option instead of the sculpted ones, to reflect the makeup version in the show. Moulded in silicone and casted in smoothcast;

    I have seen your first one a few times and still absolutely love how you painted it. Everything about it screams vintage to me. Beautiful work.

    Can’t wait to see this updated version. It’s looking great already!

    Thanks guys!

    I've since completed the sculpt, about two weeks back, just been swarmed with orders to fill before halloween so havent had the time to post each update. Anyway here is the turn around of it;

    3GeQlLl.jpg

    I've got one casted up, and will cast another right after I pull the first one out. One will be with the sculpted teeth, the other will have the resin replacements glued in for the overhead makeup look. I'm going to order in some acrylic within a few days and maybe will cast them up in that for a really close look.

    Will post some high quality pics of the first pull when complete, I really cant wait to get it finished and try it on!!

    Cheers!!!!

    I still regard the original Caine prod version as one of the best versions of the mask but of course I wanted to really do my own thing as best as possible here. I believe I will sell the ones with resin teeth for about $235 USD shipped. Still need to make the listing on my etsy once I get through a few orders.

    Cheers!

    Out of curiosity, how does this new sculpt compare to your first in terms of size? The first one looked much bigger, and not really wearable unless you have a massive head? And do they all come with a slit up the back of the head or can we request it uncut for display? Sorry for all the questions, just super interested!

    The previous one was fairly large, but it was fully wearable. It was my first wearable piece so I wanted to make sure it could fit most head sizes so it was the same basic size as a high quality halloween mask off the shelf. The new one is much smaller, but still able to fit on most head sizes I believe. Im going to do measurements around the head on this next casting im making and list them with the listing itself.

    And yes, upon request with an order I could make one to any specification! Most require the slit up the back to be able to slip on to most customers heads, but I have done ones without it as per the customers wishes.

    Let's just say I'm selling my copy of the Cain Pro to buy yours. It's not just your sculpt is better it's also the fact that his is far to thick and I had paint issues from him. I sent it back to get fixed and it came back with cracking paint. And he sculpted his teeth in. I had him cut them open and it looks odd. I like how you sculpted actual separate teeth.

    I can not stop looking at your photos! The addition of the resin teeth is what separates this mask from the other replicas. That was the main selling point after the updated sculpt!

    What kind of latex do you use? If the latex is pliable and stretchy enough and the casting isn't thick at all a slit is not required. I was able do wear the DWN version of thr mask with no slit when I had it years ago. And I have an Affleck cowl made of latex with no slit and I can put it on.

    I use monster makers mask latex. the mask can be slipped over my head without a cut up the back, when fresh pulled, really easily. But when the latex dries out a bit more and then has paint sealed on it, it does contract more than a fresh blank and is much harder to "slip" on. if its casted too thin it could risk ripping, but if someone has a head of a certain size I cant see why there would be much of a problem kind of wiggling it over the head. The neck is sculpted beefy and round enough. I just find once everything is done on it, a small cut up the back of it up to the base of the head is easiest to take on and off without any issues, but again, im completely fine with giving a customer one without a slit upon request.
