Scary Movie "The Killer" mask project

As a long time collector of Scream and Ghostface masks, I’ve always wanted a proper “The Killer” mask replica to round out my set. I’ve got the official Fun World ones, but I’ve never seen a replica that I really liked.

This is the look I really wanted. “Hello Drew” has stuck in my mind since I first saw the movie, so off I went with a big lump of claymate oil based clay.

I don’t have a whole lot of work in progress images as I tend to zone out as I start, but I’d roughly scaled the mask in the above image to full size, and stuck it down to my board, this gave me a base shape and proportions to work from, and I built up from there
After 4 or so hours of blocking out, checking reference and using an EU mold mask and a official Smiley mask as visual reference, we had something close to what I wanted.

A quick side-by-side showed that the eyes and the jaw still needed some tweaking. Every single reference photo of this mask looks different, so I had to pick one look and go with that.

If you’ve stared at the screen used mask as long as I have, you’ll notice that the mouth of the mask isn’t rubber like the standard Ghostface masks, but is the same fabric as the eye mesh. I’ve decided to sculpt the mouth solid with the little Funworld breathing hole at the top, so it will visually match the licenced pieces. I may do a mesh one for screen accuracy, but this way I can have either or.

Sculpting finished, and surface smoothed and refined. Next up he sleeps with the Hydrocal fishes.

Time for a splash of that ol’ white.

And then the exciting part, I ran a cleaner pull in some spare latex, and got to see how it looked in rubber. This shot next to a busted 2000’s smiley I’m whitening and repairing shows the overall scale and size well. I’m super happy with this.

and finally, some shots of my test casts. Working out the dwell time for the thickness I want is important, as I want these to feel as legit as possible.

Next post will hopefully have some painted whites and blacks, and maybe even some hood construction.

An important thing to note is that I’m NOT making these to sell, this is purely a personal project so no blanks or finished masks are gonna leave my workshop.

stay tuned for more!

Fun World has the original mold of it still, but never put them into production cause they figured it would confuse people as being the “Real Ghostface”

Beautiful work! :drinkers:

Ok, so some progess.

Here’s a lovely shot of some curing latex in the hydrocal mould. I found that dwelling it for 2.5 hours was about right for what I needed thickness wise.

Once I’d gotten a cast I was happy with, I shot it with two even coats of White Plasti-dip. This stuff bonds great to latex, protects against UV pretty well and gives a great even cover. Its pricey as **** here in Aus, but sucks to suck I guess. The eyeliner, nose and mouth paint was also done in Plasti-dip but hand brushed. I trimmed some nylon for the eye mesh and stuck it in with e6000.

A test fit in a Fun World robe, looking REALLY good now.

I used some fabric from a halloween Ghostface style costume I’ve had kicking around in the shop, and sewed up a rough shroud to mimic what the Funworld masks have, complete with tassels, and stitched it to the latex face. Its a bit rough as its only a test, but looked pretty great to me.

and Finally, a shot with a digitally mocked up tag.

This is a great replica, however, the mouth area should also be cut out and filled with the same nylon as the eyes, that’s how the screenused masks were made, in case you didn’t know! you can see it very well in this close up

Thanks, I’m very proud of it so far.

I did know about the mesh, its got a quick mention at the bottom of my first post, I’m making a second one so i can have it either way

If you plan selling these at some point too, it would be great to get one! I have yet to see one of these done in like resin, or something that is strong and wouldn’t have to be kept out of sunlight etc!

You have brought it to such a beautiful place. You have exceeded the original

You nailed it man! I had no idea the screen-used mask had a mesh mouth, very interesting.

Thank you so much guys, I’m very happy with the final result, and I’m so glad to see such a positive reception. Next up is a fabric mouth copy and then a Glow in the dark copy.

Whenever you’re ready to start selling them, definitely keep us all in the loop!

Dude, nice job! Scary Movie is genuinely one of my favorite movies, the Wayan brothers know how to make some great shit haha. You did excellently and I’ve always been curious to see someone tackle this mask accurately as you have.

Thanks dude, I have a huge love for the flick, so I really had to add one of these to my collection. it was a fun project

Just a little update, I made a custom 25th Anniversary hood for one of my Doofy casts. I’ve now got a nice lil youtube video showing both of these masks off! https://youtu.be/sweLcvqLR4Q

I’m loving it! I wish Funworld didn’t keep the mold hidden of it

Absolutely, I understand why but god I’d love to buy a legit one

you and me both

It’s one of the most accurate Killer masks i’ve ever seen, you’re really talented.

Forgive me for the question, did you make a negative of the mold or did you just pour liquid latex over it without a negative? Asking cause I wanted to attempt to do something similiar for the first time, sculpting a KNB or a custom designed ghostface-like mask and was wondering if I had to make a negative cast after i’m done working on the mold or I can just proceed and pour latex over it.

Thank you so much!

Yes, i made a negative mold of the plasticine sculpt, using a casting plaster called “white hydrocal”. depending on what you’ve sculpted in you CAN brush layers of latex over the sculpt to make your pieces, but its not ideal as you’ll lose any detail as you build up the layers to get a good thickness.
