    The production values on the videos are horrible compared to the quality of the mask. Lucifer is pretty bad ass hanging out in the bathroom (if that’s a shower curtain behind him).

    Frankly, I would love to get a few of these.

    I would love to see what the world looks like from another person’s eyes for a few days.

    What is life like as a black man? As an old man? As a beautiful woman? How would people treat you differently, in what subtle ways would their reactions be different?

    The potential for social experiments is limitless.

    I’ll put a couple of these on my Christmas list.

    I realize it’s probably too late since there are 39 comments above mine but here’s a warning: Don’t view this at 1024 HD resolution, full screen on a 26″ monitor like I did. It goes from interesting to looking-for-a-bottle-of-something-to-wash-the-memory-out-of-your-brain disturbing.

    BTW the background music is by a guy named JT Bruce. He is a guitar wizard who makes his stuff available under creative commons for people to use for whatever the hell they want.

    Looks a lot like a guy I once knew.

    The 600 series had rubber skin. We spotted them easy, but these are new. They look human… sweat, bad breath, everything. Very hard to spot. I had to wait till he moved on you before I could zero on him.

    Handsome???

    The “sunken eyes” look could be worked to an advantage if you made a Ted Danson or Ann Coulter mask…

    Love the backing track of extreme guitar noodling

    Anyone see that movie Bronson?

  12. krische says:

    The only give away to me is the eyes. They look to far sunken in to be natural. But still, it would take a while to realize that it’s a mask. So bravo to SPFXMasks!

  13. dculberson says:

    Even ignoring the uncanny valley effect, they have an odd definition of “handsome.” I suppose if you’re into the OCC type.

    Burt Reynolds got another facelift? At least he finally ditched the toupée.

  15. pinehead says:

    Remarkable level of detail there. I’m sure “handsome guy” is a sarcastic title for this one, as they probably didn’t want to call it “the plug-ugly thug.”

    You must mean handsome in an “I’ll kill you after I rape your dog” kind of handsome.

      @#5
      That has got to be one of the funniest comments I’ve ever read on BB.

      This mask has the “convicted felon, neo-nazi, jailhouse rapist” kind of good looks :)

  17. jonathan_v says:

    anyone else find this face incredibly feminine?

    it looks less to me like a “handsome man” full mask, and more like a girl who is wearing various latex prosthetics to look like a man.

  18. Talia says:

    I donno about “handsome.” Sleazy guy, maybe.

  19. HeatVision says:

    These guys should do an “Agent Smith” mask.

    For any reasonably tall and non-curvy ladies getting married in the near future, my suggestion would to be to put this mask on and dress up as a minister, then after the wedding music starts and the tension ramps up as the bride fails to appear, pull it off in a surprise twist worthy of a Mission:Impossible movie!

    • Gilbert Wham says:

      That is fucking genius. Also, a Priest’s cassock could hide a lot of hips ‘n tits. Just sayin’

    Armed robbery possibilities…..

    Creepy! How long does it take to put this on though?

    Supposedly the Max Headroom makeup took ~4 hours, I wonder how this stacks up.

  24. Anonymous says:

    Remarkably creepy! (I presume the “Handsome Guy” designation is because guys who look like this think they are stunningly gorgeous — not!)

    Absolutely remarkable detail!

    Can’t help thinking how really sweaty the wearer must get, and wonder about the wear and tear on the real eyelids!

    Creepily realistic. I guess “Stalker” or “Pornstar” wouldn’t sell as many masks. Still @ nearly $700 the thing BETTER be convincing.
    What I noticed was the mouth. Clearly the mask’s mouth was much larger than the wearer.
    Still, if you consider getting one for halloween, just hope someone else doesn’t go on a crime spree wearing one or you’ll likely find yourself with lots of explaining to do!
    It’s kind of like the person I knew who decided to go to a halloween party as the shoe-bomber… and tried to get there by public transportation…

  26. yragentman says:

    The clip would be way more convincing if they showed it being taken off at the end – a la Mission Impossible.

    This leaves some doubt (except for the brief second of flapping chest plate).

  27. billstewart says:

    [Begin Dan Ackroyd Voice]
    Wanna see something really scary?
    [End Dan Ackroyd Voice]

    I was somewhat expecting the actor to take the mask off at the end, and possibly be female.

    Nice Buck Angel mask.

  29. lewis stoole says:

    maybe it’s the cough syrup starting to kick in, but if these guys made grigory “grisha” perelman masks, and then the anon guys picked up on it and started wearing the “grisha” en masse around town instead of the guy fawkes, my head would ex-freaking-splode!

  30. bardfinn says:

    Needs spirit gum under the bridge of the nose (eyebrow hitching at 0:45), is otherwise /superb/.

  31. Tensegrity says:

    Improv Everywhere should buy 100 of these…

  32. knijon says:

    Take a look at the other masks they make and you’ll realize why this one is called “handsome guy.”

  33. voiceinthedistance says:

    I’m afeared. Very afeared. So are my household pets. I wouldn’t even trust granny around this guy, at least not unless there were some teenage boys around to keep him occupied for a while.

    I guess the bullwhip and chaps are extra?

  34. alowishus says:

    Looks stunningly real until the camera pulls back and you see that the guy’s head is twice the size of a normal head. Maybe with shoulder pads you wouldn’t notice . . .

  35. KremlinLaptop says:

    Ouch. The fact that I look sorta like that, er, faux-dude and these comments…

    Now in fairness my facial hair is nowhere near that level of tying-a-dame-to-railroad-tracks villainy, so I guess I’m okay for now. On the minus side of things if I buy this mask it won’t really work too well.

    How long can you wear this against your skin ? I.E. can your skin breath ?

    Since when did “The Edge” start working for mask companies?

  38. Trotsky says:

    That should be called Shanked in the Shower Guy Mask.

    Also, why do people feel the need to have SOME sort of musical accompaniment for every other video uploaded to YouTube? Whether it’s public domain syntho-shit or rambling generic guitar, it’s all ear-spam. Why bother?

    Finally, that mask IS pretty convincing and could be a ton of fun. Looking at their other masks though, I think the monster type ones are the least interesting. I think it would be more fun to have a bunch of masks that just look like regular people. Much more opportunity for mayhem.

  39. Trotsky says:

    Also, on their site, why call the black guy mask “the player?” I don’t like the inference. Why not just call it “Black Guy” mask?

    • Evil Paul says:

      Trotsky, don’t hate “the player”, hate The Game.

    • KremlinLaptop says:

      Up until this mask at least all the ‘normal’ masks had names with ‘the x’ so it just followed suit, besides which until this mask — and I’d say still — the black guy mask is the most attractive out of the lot. So between it being described as being meant to bring to mind the likes of Samuel L Jackson and how it looks, I don’t think they’re trying to really invoke any sort of harmful stereotype there beyond giving the idea of perhaps a rich ladies man. If they called it ‘The Gangsta’ that’d be problematic.

      Also, it lists his occupation as stockbroker — seriously. Why a silicone mask needs a occupation I don’t know, but there you go…

    • weeklyrob says:

      “hy call the black guy mask “the player?” I don’t like the inference. Why not just call it “Black Guy” mask?”

      They say it’s supposed to be reminiscent of roles played by Ving Raimes and Samuel L. Jackson (though I don’t see it).

      I’d guess that they’re planning to make a few more black guys and they can’t name them all “black guy.”

      Just a guess.

    Oh, and the mask is cool too, except for the eye thing, but woohoo!
