The mask arrived arrived today, wow that was REALLY fast from Italy! Only about 3-4 days. Should be fast condering the shipping was almost $60.00. I took some "initial impresons" photos just to see how it looked under various lighting etc, and I love it. The eyes were very small and narrow, so I had to cut them slightly with small mustache trimmer scissors because my eyelid's were getting crushed. I never cut licone before so I was scared crapless. But I took it slow and it worked out well. I would like the mouth to be cut more to show my teeth, but it looks OK as it is. I would love to be able to cut the mouth fully so my lips are exposed, then use make-up and perhaps latex to make a prosthetic for more movement of the mouth.
It should work as the licone mask should still hug the face tightly. Anyone ever try this? But with the price of there masks it is tough risking it. Seems like it would work though, even if just having the lips out and then ung make-up on the lips. But other than that it fits well and feels great on. It has fabric inde. My low-end camera can not capture the awesome details fully, but it looks great in regular or low lighting. I am going to make a life-zed with red lighting eventually as well. I got tooth color for teeth so I can make my own teeth into Freddy teeth, as the FX Fangs get uncomfortable after awhile, but would like the mouth a little bigger. The little scissors are great. I just took some quick pics, I will take more with the complete costume when I get my glove and pants done.
I just used the plastic one I made out of the Rubies veron. I hope to get more pics during Halloween too with a better camera. I may use red make-up on my lower eyes or if I have to make the eyes bigger. Would I need a setting powder for it to stay on? Been a long time nce I wore it under a mask so I forget. I don't want it on top of my eyes though in case it would run down, and all of the warning labels say not to put it near eyes, but I think underneath may work, but also don't want it sweating down on the mask. But the eyes are still small enough that you can't see it in lower lighting anyway, the pics are close with flash and still look great. Hope to get some pics with "Jason" soon too. I was also surprised how good the mass marketed Freddy teeth looked, unfitted even. I may make a plastic mold for them and try them out as they don't look so bulky with the mask on, but still a pain to wear. I may just use them for display or make my own. Tooth color is the best for speaking. Here is the album and some first pics: I have the masked pulled down slightly so I can see the camera, normally very little is showing under my eyes. Still adjusting the ze though.
