I wonder if he'll give a testimonial as to the realism of the product...?

That's not a mask, he's real right? It's hard to tell but it doesn't look like a mask...

If it's a $600 mask, Wally-world doesn't sell them, do they?
A very small mask and magic store in Rockford, Ill. (I used to go to) was visited by the FBI asking if he had ever sold this one mask design?
They began with their general memory-jogging types of questions when the store owner cut them off and said, I know his name, address and where he is right now, he is a regular customer of mine.
Was he talking about one of us immoral, unscrupulous nasty
weird haunters?
Was it a sleezy magician?
No, but you could have seen the bank robber on TV every Sunday!
A preacher!
He had robbed numerous banks because,,,"god told him to."
Of course he lived like a millionaire, didn't share the wealth with the "poor" and his Wife didn't know about his "Girlfriends"
(But God Did!)
Maybe God "Dropped the Dime" on him?
The little magic & Halloween store had many clown make-up customers who entertained children church groups, there was the original connection.

He definitely got a good return on his investment. DA It is the SPFX elder mask. I suppose I should have been more clear in my post.

p.S. I did notify the san diego police dept.

Allen, I meant to ask, how on earth did you happen upon that story?!

I have a feeling silicone has just turned the crime game on it's head! I guess make-up has been around for forever, so maybe not.

I want to say I'm floored about that mask in particular being used, but maybe not!! Who is next? The old woman, sarge, the thug?! hahahaha!

I have a healthy fascination for bank robberies. Im not at all shocked, the elder is the least noticeable. Every other mask would stand out in a crowd and be noticed. If there is a next I bet it will be the thug or the old woman.

Allen,

I knew you were implying the spfx elder actually, but I really didn't see the likeness. It looks a little like it but it's not obvious maybe it's just me...

I heard about this on the SPFX forum, and well... I'm not sure. It does look similar, but the video I saw about the robberies had better close-up pics and it doesn't exactly match. I'll try to find the video that I saw. But like I said, I'm not sure.

Probably 25 people at the local nursing home wear theirs everyday.
All day long, all night too.
How do they stand it?
They must maintain a low metabolism, stay quiet, calm , no contact sports, no screaming, running up and down dark hallways.

He might not want to remove the mask for the next 20 years.
"Bubba, he's yours!"
"Naw, this Bubba don't do no elderly."
20 years would be a very long time to sweat in a mask.

ten to twenty might be a long time to sweat in a mask, but it's sure better than the alternative...
