Man-Eating Hooker Masks up for sale.

I'm putting these bad girls online for sale today. Starting manufacturing them this afternoon. They're made of a durable latex, typical of most Halloween type masks, rather flexible as well - although not as much as foam latex. It comes already painted up as you see it here with resin spikes and teeth.

Can be made blank with spikes and teeth not attached if desired, just let me know. The spikes and teeth are easily adhered to the mask with crazy glue, that should keep them on permanently. They come with an elastic strap sewn in to slip them on and off. To sort of blend them in, just some black makeup around your eyes and mouth should do it.

They sell for $26, so iffen you feel the need to devour men's souls, or anyone's really, you might want to snag one of these. Allow for about 3-4 days for manufacturing, these things require time to look this nasty.
If and when we get to do a full feature of "Man-Eating Hooker from Hell" the Demon Hookers most likely won't look like this, this was a simple, cheap design for the trailer only. Should we raise the money, they will look way more hideous and demonic, so these masks are only going to be seen in the fake trailer for now.

"Man-Eating Hookers from Hell" trailer is finally online.

After all this waiting, it's finally online! The only place the trailer is viewable is on the actual site:

I've also started up an Online Funding Campaign to turn this crap into a feature. The campaign will run for the next year, or until we reach our goal. Although in order for us to reach that goal, this site needs to get out there as much as possible - so feel free to repost the link EVERYWHERE!

I will be making another version of the video to upload to other sites, including the URL to this site to hopefully draw in more traffic. $10,000 is a pretty reasonable amount, I can do A LOT with $10,000 - it's pretty easy when you come from the Roger Corman mentality of film making.

So enjoy the trailer, it's probably not safe for work, depending where you work.

New site goes online tomorrow

So I mentioned awhile back I was asked to make a fake trailer and I did so, under the guidelines of making it the most trashy depraved thing I could. Well it's not really the most depraved thing I could think of - I decided to hold back a little since I then had the idea of turning this crap into a feature. So it's not as over the top as I'd pictured, but still pretty good.

The website I'm referring to of course is the site for the fake trailer and the Online Funding Campaign that will take place over the course of the next year. We're hoping to raise enough money to actually turn that trailer into a full blown (no pun intended) feature film, and make it look way worse. And by worse I mean, the FX will be better and more over the top (the whole reason for needing money in the first place really), the Demon Hooker will be redesigned, making these masks a bit of a nostalgic kind of thing. The "deaths" you see in the trailer are PG compared to some of the stuff I'd like to do.

The trailer and the website goes live tomorrow at 5pm. The Online Funding Campaign starts as well and will end either when we reach our goal or 5pm next Halloween.

Donations will be handled pretty simply, no money changes hands until the goal is reached. So for now there will be an email set up for pledges. So if you think you'd like to donate something, send an email to that address (there'll be a link provided obviously) and the amount you'd like to pledge and whatever email address you use for PayPal. Once we reach the goal in pledges, everyone will receive an invoice through PayPal and hopefully you'll remember and honour the pledge.

And you will be getting something for your money, all sorts of cool stuff lined up depending on the amount you donate. There's be more details once things are online tomorrow.

Cold Rath, The Electric Demon

Did another photoshoot this past weekend, hoping to ramp up the number I'm doing since the "Demons" project is ending this January - however, then I'll be starting the 2nd version of it. So not really the end, just the end of this round.

Here's some pictures of Cold Rath, The Electric Demon - very much inspired by the video game Infamous 2, but first a video

"The Barbarians" photo shoot

Got another photo shoot done today, as well as using some new pieces for the time. This one had probably the most elaborate costumes so far, although I'd have at least one future one planned that will be pretty cool.

The new pieces will be online this week, just in time for last minute Halloween costumes. The full face worn by John here is a Volrath Demon.

 The ears here, worn by Emily-Rose, Shassmash Demon Ears ,are brand new. In fact these ones just came out of the oven about 20 minutes before she arrived for makeup. The resin spikes with foam latex sockets are new as well, not sure if I'll be selling these or not.

And now onto some pictures:
And finally, a behind the scenes video:

Still busy...

I've made about 400+ prosthetics in the last 3 1/2 weeks for wholesale orders. Seemed like it was way more then that though. Got a few new pieces on the way, as well as about 5 or so more photoshoots I've been trying to get to amidst the wholesale orders.

As far as the fake trailer is concerned, only got a few shots left on that. Did a quick shoot last week that involved heading down to the park to splash some blood around. Seems like an average Saturday morning for me these days.

Hoping to get some new props on the go in the next few weeks. This time of year has been pretty busy, busier then I expected. Still got more to do as well, some consignment stuff and some retail stuff as well.

And here's a short doc a friend of mine did on me:
