    I asked this on the other haunt forum a week or so ago, but this forum feels more like home for me. So I will ask here as well


    Ok guys, when you are either attending or operating a haunt...which do you prefer to see or use? Masks or Prosthetics?

    This is a question that I find both interresting, and is also sort of like a poll for me to use as a tool to see which would be better for me to use at my future haunt.

    The pro's that I have noticed, just working at a haunt last year was that most of the people coming through enjoy the special FX prosthetics moreso than the masks. I wore a prosthetic for my scene last year, and I stood completely still in my scene, so people always thought I was just a prop, when all actuality I was right there! lol I think the prosthetic was realistic/fake (however you want to look at it) enough to trick people.

    I cant really figure out which would come cheaper overall. People say make-up teams and prosthetics and such are expensive, but I would figure that quality masks would start racking up in prices as well.

    So what are your thoughts?

    I personally always prefer makeup over masks whether it be straight greasepaint or full buildup/prosthetics. However with the advancements in silicone masks...those arent too shabby...but is that considered a mask in the same respect as if you put it against something like a Death Studios or Distortions mask?


    thats my thought at least.

    Masks are masks....prosthetics and make-up is prosthetics and make-up. lol

    I get what you're saying though. I may do a combo of both.

    I like the moving latex masks that are in two parts so that when you talk the jaw moves. An its getting really hard to find those.. whats up with that. Well any way I'm always running around because I'm hyper as all hell in haunts. So normally in about an hour i will sweat off make up and just say f*** it.

    This silly poll won't slow me down on making latex masks. Actually has me trying harder to compete with make up.

    I'm still new at this but so far (and I like them all) the really good masks are just as expensive as the Prosthetics. Like the other guy said, I leave to the individual actor. We have a cosmotology school here that actually teaches all of this and the girls/guys going to school there get extra credit for working outside the school so it is not too horribly expensive to hire them.
