    I am just trying to find a good (economical) supplier for haunt masks. I am still on a very limited budget and would be unable to spend thousands on masks. Where do most of you buy your masks?

    If you say Walmart then I will puke!

    I know that makeup can give a better realism but I don't have time to deal with 70 actors to get in makeup.

    Your advice would sure help out.

    Haunted Media DVD magazine has some awesome segments in their issues 4 and 5 on Mask Augmentation. They show you how to take cheap $5 masks and using household materials transform them into AWESOME custom creations. I really recomend it , you can make your own characters that your guests will have never seen before! Plus it is cheap.

    As for the haunted media. I have just bought all their DVD's and one of them is on the mask augmentation.

    As for the theme, That is not something that I have narrowed down just yet. We will most likely be a haunt with the theme changing every 2 to 3 rooms. We do not have a haunt that is all one theme. I know there is lots of people that will scold me for it but that is just how the haunts in our area work and that is basically how I know them. I guess I am looking for a website that offers good masks at economical prices. I have been on some sites that their masks are hundred of dollars and that is just not there. I was hoping more for the $30-$60 range.

    A majority of these masks are in the $60 range:

    I get alot of masks from fright catalog ( http://www.frightcatalog.com/Halloween-Masks/ ) they are cheap but most of the time I change them , a good thing to do when using cheap masks is to cut the eye holes about 2 inches bigger than they come standard ( be sure to make up the eye area of your actor so it doesn't look too cheesey) , this increases your actor's visibility and the overall safety of your haunt.

    I hope that helps you.

    Gallows, I recommend buying slip masks and creating your own cheap masks by adhering the slip to a sock mask, we carry a great line of slip masks , as well as Screamline studios,Alot of haunts do this. its a cheap affordable way to have some great looking masks.

    Yes! Buy the absolutely cheapest $3.oo mask, cut it in half, turn it inside-out, sew it back together again and maybe paint it and nobody will have ever seen this creation before! (Except in their nightmares!?)
    Of course just reaching into a wallet and paying is easier, unless you happen to have a wallet like mine!
    (It might as well be a "Mummy-Wallet' sewn shut and buried in the desert!)

    GET A MAKE-UP ARTIST!!!! Go to your local colleges theater dept. and post-up (with permission) ads/flyers looking for a volunteer make-up artist. Trust me, you WILL find help. Students are ALWAYS looking for ways to add to their resume... this is where you would come in! -Tyler

    Take your wallet, cut it in half, turn it inside out and sew it back together and paint it. Using this as a diversion, when you pull this wallet out you will automatically qualify for some kind of discount. Then watch Ebay for things that come up for sale. They can't see your wallet from the other dimension.


    Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax. These posts have been made by professional post makers, do not try this type of posting on your own without extensive training, lovely assistants and a trusty clown horn.
