Saw them on Facebook and talked with them through emails. Some mask look different and interesting. I am looking for some new masks this year to cut down on the paint.

I like the silicone mask but can't see spending that much money for something that is going to rip immediately. Thank goodness the one company puts mess in the whole thing. Got a cut but stayed together and didn't lose the whole mask.

Any feedback? Of course I love CFX. Haven't found a mask that fits any better.

Some of the masks look cool. I watched a video interview with them, and they didn't say whether they used netting to reinforce their masks or not. They implied that they made their masks thicker in order to keep them from tearing. If this is the case them that means they are heavier, which I found makes it harder to get actors to wear them for any length of time. I made ones last year from really thin sculpts and meshed the entire mask. Actors liked them a lot better.

Hire people who don't need masks. They won't be abusing or forgetting or stealing your mask.
My first two employees were older, slightly strange guys who many in this town were afraid of.(for no good or real reason)
Some local people were actually quite afraid when the lights went up and they saw one of these guys there!
I know, I know, it's supposed to be a :"Haunted House" not a sideshow freak display, or is it?
I'm still here, that must count for something?

Jim I can always count on you for a smile....

I can tell you their customer service and response time is good. They do NOT reinforce them typically but said they would do that if I request it at no charge. They do say they add an extra layer for the commercial uses.

Thinking about it. They have a really good deal if you order so many. Something to think about.

I own and operate Altered flesh fx and I offer Hollywood quality silicone masks and I fully reinforce all our masks throughout, not just around the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. Movement of our masks is lifelike and they are very durable. I will have a variety of new designs coming out at Transworld in march and will have cash and carry items on hand.

Personally, i'd wait for transworld because we'll have a whole new line of VERY affordable silicone masks set to release at the show.

Thanks Juan and Jared. Like both of your masks. Don't have any yet, but have looked at them. I liked his one mask that I can make fit our theme this year. I will certainly have masks on my list. We are looking to purchase between 6-8 so we will be stopping by to see you both and others. March is right around the corner.
I am definately looking at that Twin mask.

I definitely cannot wait to shop around all the new silicone mask makers' booths this year. Look forward to seeing you all!
