    This is it. Lance from Xtreme Design FX went out to California and sculpted this mask to be cast in silicone by another artist named Rusty. This is the END ALL, BE ALL of Freddy masks. Moves with your face, just like the real thing. And the detail is absolutely incredible. It isn't modeled after any specific movie, just the best parts from every movie with Kevin Yagher as the main influence to the look of this piece. As a huge Freddy fan, this is the most incredible thing I have ever seen.

    Hopefully Lance chimes in with more information, but here is the video of the mask in action posted with his permission.

    I just mentioned to my wife yesterday that I needed to add Freddy to go with Jason, Michael, and Leatherface for my haunted backyard. She even asked...can't you just buy a mask? Hmm...well I guess I can now ;)

    HOLY CRAP.
    That mask is amazing.
    Does this method ever break down or turn to goo like some laytex has done?

    What he said.

    From what I understand, it has a 25 year shelf life. Imagine if you take really good care of it...

    thats awesome...

    but once you have the moulds and technique down, do these things cost so much to make to justify the 700 price tag?

    ouch.

    worth it... possibly, but too rich for my blood for a non SW mask. :(

    was hoping it would be closer to the 3-400 dollar mark, oh well maybe one will end up in the JY one day...

    is this a small run, or is it something thats going to be around for a while?

    You have to keep in mind the amount of time it takes to paint one of these...

    Having painted a Freddy mask before...it's a loooooong time.

    yeah painting a latex Freddy takes me hours, I can't imagine how long it takes to paint a silicone one. I know the paint techniques are completely different.

    As for the price? I think it's because it's a small somewhat limited run.

    And you gotta look at who sculpted it, that's a bad man right there. :D

    I don't know. Lance will probably be along soon to answer questions. From what I understand it's going to be a limited run, though.

    Very Cool.. out of my rang, and not a huge freddie fan.. but, that is definatly a sweet looking mask.

    So, Silicone? Like the rubber used on divers masks? nice.

    Wonder how it fits people with very large heads or even small heads though.

    Paint wouldn't stick to silicone until just recently when painting systems were developed for that purpose.

    Silicon painting systems are amazing. Silicone Inc. Has one available and the results are impressive. Basically it uses a liquid silicone adhesive that can be mixed with most any tube of quality artist oil paints. That way any color can be mixed including translucents to give great depth to underlying detail like veins or odd mutations. :D
    The effect is incredi9ble. This system was used on prosthetics and creature effects exclusively on the TV show Surface. Nim, when not digital, was pure silicone right to the paint job.

    Holy smokes ... that is simply too awesome for words.

    Do you have to use anything like spirit gum to have the mask fit to your eyebrows and mouth? If so how do you remove it without it tearing?

    I asked the same thing and they said you dont use any adhesives at all. you have to stretch it over your head and it becomes like a second skin
    very comfortable from what i hear about their other masks

    Having owned one of these let me say this this is the most innovative mask design ever conceived. They slip right over your head and fit anyone. This is because of the years it took to develop the proper core to the mold. 700$ price tag seems steep but you're also getting a set of teeth, the armature to display it on...not to mention that these molds cost 3K a pop to get done. Also, running this silicone is expensive as well and it probably close to 100$ per mask. This is the next generation of halloween masks. I seriously don't think it will be long till someone comes out to try and copy this.

    I appreciate all the compliments. I sculpted it and I am still in awe of how cool the finished product looks. I know that less than five of these will ever be sold. I sculpted it and commisioned Russ to cast it using his innovative techniques. I gave him the okay to sell a few just to recoup some of his costs so whoever snags one of these will be in a very exclusive club.LOL. Thanks again for all of your compliments.

    I assume that because it is silicone, it isn't very "breathable" How long can one wear a mask like this, before it starts to feel constricting?

    People who have his masks say they went 3-4 hours without taking them off and it wasnt bad at all. probably because you arent breathing *inside* it, so heat and sweat dont build up

    F.C.:

    I was talking to Rusty about these the other day, and he is very, very serious about the limited run. I believe all of them have been spoken for already, but I could be wrong. For those of you who will no doubt ask, no Rusty does not sell blanks/unpainted copies of his masks.

    Magicman, I sure hope you asked permission before you posted that info.

    I know this is an old thread... almost dead and burried...
    But, I think I've found one of these rare Freddy masks on ebay
    a month or so back:

    [​IMG]

    It's made from silicone, it is SO looking like the Freddy from the movies,
    awesome details, moves perfectly with any face movement, cast all the way down to the chest...
    It just makes you wanna run away screaming for someone to wake you up.

    Oh yeah... it's now in my collection btw :p
    (nevermind the watermark, just so I know when my pic's used elsewhere
    and I didn't want it to cover the entire image...ruins the pic if it would)

    Does anyone know what kind of problems might have came up with things like the eyes and mouth not lining up right on the customer's face?

    I'd be tempted to try something like this, but...

    I have one and it just molds to the wearers face. Looks good on everyone I've seen wear it.

    Here I am with Robert Englund:

    i made my own freddy mask from scratch.

    i found one of those boxed kits that had the clear plastic mold straight from the actors face, with the freddy look.

    it had foam pieces, i threw them in the trash,

    i got liquid latex, and hand made a complete full head mask, with a neck that would run down far enough to go under the shirt.

    i made a seperate face section, that i spiritgummed in place.

    the chin was molded into the hood part of the main mask.

    think of a divers hood, that the way i designed it, then a face piece glued on.

    i used red thick stage blood to layer in the groove/convolutions,

    then used a semi gloss clear latex coating over the entire outer surface.


    it wasnt split up the back like a store mask is.

    i installed a piece of velcro to the back of the neck, once the hood was pulled over and in place, i then sinced up the velcro in back, which pulled up all the floppy loose front neck section up to my throat.

    then spiritgummed the face section on. used a lil color makeup stuff to blend in the masks edges to hide them, around my eyes and mouth and chin as well.


    for the ears, i had a simple way to do it, in the right spots, i just made a small slit the right directions, and would reach in and grab the top tips of my ears and pull them out to the right amount.

    the end look was it looked like my ears were melted into the sides of my head, kinda like freddys was.

    unfortunately, i dont have any way to get a pic of it online, as i only have a polaroid pic, and my friend has it.

    i did a similar mask for my son for halloween one year too.

    a skull mask, so i did up a mummy style costume, with the latex skull in 2 parts on his face.

    he won 3rd place in a contest, with over 150 kids tryin to win.

    id say, that aint too bad. it did look cool, as i told him to ham it up and drag the one foot, and moan.

    audience loved it.

    Lucky for me it was offered with a 'buy now' option so I bought it for the general price of an SPFX mask.
    The only thing missing to complete my Krueger costume, was a decent mask, so now I'm all set...
