In 1984 Morbid Masks Studios began manufacturing Latex Masks and Special Effects.
In 2008 Morbid Masks Studios stopped production of all Masks, especially it's ever popular Thin Skin Latex Masks. This was because the supplier of the special paint that gave Morbid Masks their unique characteristics terminated supply for good. The whole process relied on this paint and no other alternatives were comparable. The moulds were redundant and could not be stored; nearly all were thrown away. So ended an era.
In 2012 a new supply of paint had been found and Morbid Masks was resurrected,
Apart from our regular range of latex rubber ears, noses, horns and facial features, we also currently make tbree designs of Live Role Play Fighting Claws, our latest Cat Claw design now available. Plus we have re-introduced an old GRP (fibreglass) Skull Helm in several colours and sizes.
Epic Effects Mastix Spirit Gum is a non-toxic adhesive for applying latex prosthetics and hair to skin. The gum is almost invisible once dried, improving the look of prosthetics. Mastix Spirit Gum is safe to use on children, but should be kept out of reach and applied only with adult supervision. The glue comes in a 12 ml bottle with screw-on lid. Inside the lid, the bottle is suited with a tiny brush helping the user apply the glue effectively.
Directions for use:
Clean the skin and the prosthetic with Mastix Spirit Gum Remover.
Apply a thin layer of glue to your prosthetic with an applicator. Let it dry completely until clear and repeat with a second layer.\
Apply the prosthetic in the desired position and hold in place for ten seconds.
Gently peel the prosthetic away from the skin starting at one corner, using the Mastix Spirit Gum Remover to dissolve the glue and to clean the skin. Then clean your skin and the prosthetic with mild soap and warm water.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Epic Effect Mastix Spirit Gum should not be used around the eyes or on mucous membranes like the lips, eyelids or on private areas. Keep away from open flames, as this product is highly flammable.
The smell of disease is rancid in the streets, but you are the Plague Doctor. All you smell are the fresh lemon balm and rose hips in your mask, protecting you from the lethal miasma of the dying.
The Plague Doctor Mask is your protection from the dangers of the world's illness, shielding you just as a knight's armor protects him from a fatal strike. To everyone else, you are a symbol of knowledge and healing...but also the harbinger of death. Looking into the blackness of your mask's eyes feels like exposing one's soul, and so even your patients harbor fear at your presence.
