There's nothing quite as creepy as one person wearing the skinned face of another, as films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Devil's Rejects have proven. Now, you too can wear a face mask of your own, and you don't even have to go through the trouble of carving and peeling!
Founded in 2009, The Shoggoth Assembly is comprised of a group of artists who offer their special effects services to movies and various other productions in their home state of Maine, and their incredibly gruesome creations are also available to those outside of Maine, courtesy of their Etsy shop. While you'll find everything from severed fingers to torn off ears in the shop, it is their face masks that really caught our attention, looking very much like the ones Leatherface and Otis Driftwood have peeled off the faces of their victims.
The movie quality masks are made of a durable skin-like silicone, and are completely hand-painted. Several different faces are available and details can be customized, including coloring and bloodwork. Each mask can even be given a clown face paintjob or a sewn up mouth, and they can either be made to wear or display.
Head over to the Shoggoth Assembly Etsy shop to see all the faces they've got up for grabs, and learn more.
As we talked about last week, 'human skin masks' are causing quite a stir over in China, where one vengeful man recently tormented his ex-wife, while wearing one!
