    I need some good close up's of the Fly from the first movie back in 1958.
    I'll soon be gettinga mask from a fellow and I want to come as close as possible to the first.

    Thanks

    Vincent Price looks relatively calm given the situation. I guess it's not the first time he's been face to face with a hideous monster. :p

    Great link, Goldenrod.

    I especially like the maggot wallpaper sylak uses for the tutorial.

    {EDIT} Should this be in the Costuming Forum?

    Thanks for the tutorial Goldenrod.

    Nice to see the classics still appreciated.
    The wallpaper is distracting though :)

    The Fly mask in the first film is very DARK... almost black, I had to lighten up these grabs considerably.

    The first-movie head is also quite small, not nearly as big as the sequel mask. Note the protruding, smooth gold eyeballs (almost capsule or egg shaped), the two vertical antennae between the eyes, coarse hairs all over, the short snout, and "M"-shaped feelers over the snout (always waggling around in the film)...
