Still deciding on your Halloween costume this year? Artist, Ian Langohr might just inspire you with his series of dark and twisted masks. He learned the skills for making these type of heads while working at a mascot company in Toronto, ON. He was then able to take those techniques and put his own personal dark humor into them. I love his process videos, giving you a glimpse into all the steps required to put together something of this caliber. The zombie cat mask titled, Jean Paul of the Dead, was modeled after his furry little feline friend.

 

Just a few more of his many mask creations.

If you attended the Montreal Mini Maker Faire or the Ottawa Mini Maker Faire this summer, you may have had to chance to meet Ian! He loves to share his work with others, and even lets attendees try them on! Here’s a young girl wearing his Angler Fish mask (and yes it does light up!).
