    This mask was made by 2 very talented artists who did an outstanding job. It is made of silicone and moves with you face and expressions. Please excuse the bad pics, I'm too excited to do any better right now.

    Very cool. How comfortable is it? I can imagine that it gets pretty hot pretty quick when your head is encased in silicone.

    not hot at all actually. since you arent breathing inside it like a latex mask, the heat really doesnt build up. I love it.

    She makes them in both part 1 style (with no stripes on the sleeves) and the rest with the striped sleeves. It's a shame I have to tear and dirty this up, lol. It's a nice sweater.

    i wish he would sell the moulds and pass off the material secret... why is it i get the feeling that flying pigs will be having a snowball fight in hell before that happens... :( ?

    how much did you have to shell out for it if you dont mind me asking?

    i seem to remember it being upwards of 700 or so :confused

    not that if i had it to spend that i wouldnt... but * thats alot for rubber!


    oh also how in the world does it follow your mouth movement so well??? do you have to use spirit gum or something?

    or is it that form fitting and thin that it just sticks to you?

    That was the price. No spirit gum or adhesives required, it just forms right to your face as soon as you put it on. it is the coolest thing ever.
    (I'm trying to get him to do a left hand the same way, but he won't budge, lol)

    *, thats a great idea about the hand.

    why not?

    they used makeup not a glove right?

    and couldnt he sell it as a burn victem hand and avoid the copyright issues?

    man i wish he would at least sell or share the secret substance used.

    if someone here had a life cast we could make something simmilar.

    :(

    im just peeved to know that ill never have one...

    thats frickin sweet how well the expressions come through without the use of adhesives.

    damnit.

    OldKen, It's silicone, no 'secret', that's why the price is high, and that's why it fits and moves so well.

    AMAZING score CG, those pics look great. That's a killer costume right there

    The nose is a bit big, but it is still the best silicone Freddy I've ever seen. my next step up would be to have one made on my own lifecast sculpted to look like Robert Englund in the Freddy makeup.

    Can't believe this thread still exists!

    Re: The ULTIMATE Freddy mask!

    Silicone masks arent no new thing.


    To do a mask like this, simply carve out the eyes and mouth a BIT, that way on the Platsil Gel 10 casting (Or Dragonskin), it plus up firmly. This is about $70 worth of silicone, no * reason why it should cost $700.
    $300 I agree on (inculding trimming, paint etc) but not near a grand.

    Hopefully Fred masks like this become the new standard in non-liscenesed masks. And Sadly, New Line is no more. A HUGE loss in the film business.

    On your lifecast, via a metal tool, knock back room near the eyes and mouth. When cast into the mold takin off of the clay sculpt on said lifecast if will have enough giveway to create that conformed feel per wearer since the casting is recessed as opposed to how its "normally" done. That gives the appliance feeling, but without the hours and prosaide.

    That looks freakin amazing! Regarding the price of $700: I find it reasonable. The mask has to be sculpted first, so he needs to transfer the price for the materials (clay, silicone for mold) to the final product.

    Re: The ULTIMATE Freddy mask!

    if i can ever find the pic and scan it into the computer, i did a freddy mask i made myself, i used liquid latex, and a mold, that was supposed to be off englunds face. i dunno if it was, but it sure looked like it anyways. i used a latex bald cap as a base, pourd a bunch of sections and adhered them with a lil liquid latex to the cap, to form a full tight fittin full head mask, the face itself was done in a seperate piece, the chin i molded into the main section.

    think of it like a divers hood, then i just spirit gummed the face piece on, a lil makeup stuff to blend in the areas around the edges, which were made thinner to blend in easier.

    i used thick stage blood to give the reddish area of the mask its color, and sealed it with semi gloss clear latex. in a low light situation, it appeared as a freshly burnt seeping kinda look. it turned out pretty nice for what i was workin with.

    As there are so many experts on the forum, and if its that easy, maybe somone here on the forum should start making these.
    I'm sure they'd sell like hot cakes at $300 or so.. . i know i'd like one.

    Get to it guys!

    Oh, I know. You also have to take into consideration that I posted this thread in 2006. Even then, silicone masks weren't new, but it was a while back. Hopefully someday I can get one custom made on my lifecast though.

    Regardless of whether or not a silicone mask is a "new thing" or not, its the artistry and craftsmanship being celebrated here. Not simply the method used.

    I wonder if you made a mask that was completely 1:1 out of dragon skin, would it stretch and fit like a glove.

    I sounded way too harsh! I apologize, it wasnt my intention to come off as some huge dick head.

    As someone else said, its the artistry being celebrated with this mask and thread, and very amazing it is. I would have to agree that it is indeed the best freddy mask.

    Since I took the pictures earlier in the thread (in 2006) I have completed the costume with new pants, boots, I weathered the sweater, and I have a burned left hand glove. I'll get some pics of the full getup closer to halloween.

    Re: The ULTIMATE Freddy mask!

    There have been a few. There is one on eBay from time to time made by someone in Italy, but the inside of it is just flat, so it presses your nose down pretty hard and I hear it isn't comfortable. Also, when worn it really distorts the likeness. There was another not too long ago, but it was more of a generic look, so the likeness wasn't there, and the eye holes were way too big, so you would need to wear makeup around your eyes.

    The mask is being repainted at the moment and I wont have it back until closer to Halloween. I was never happy with how shiny it looks, so I am having a matte paintjob done.

    Didnt have great lighting or a lot of time when I got this shot. I'll try to get better ones soon.

    But now there is a mash inside the silicone to prevent it from ripping at the holes. And it has ear holes this time around.
