The Classic Kirk Halloween Mask: (UPDATE PAGE 2) !!!

New postby TheShape1188 » Sun Jul 31, 2011 11:55 pm

UPDATE PAGE 3!!!!!!!! :ME LIKES:

Many of us know that the masked used in the 1978 classic Halloween was a modified 1975 Captain kirk mask. The Captain Kirk mask was a thin children's latex mask sold back in the 70's to mimic the death mask that Star Trek used during the filming of the show for William Shatner. For Halloween, the Kirk mask was painted white, eyebrows & sideburns torn off, hair puffed up & eye holes rounded out. It was something instantly special, as production designer & modifier of the mask Tommy Lee Wallace proclaimed.

It's known to die hards,general fans, & mask collectors throughout the community as the:

The Hero, The Shape Mask, Kirk Mask, etc...

After a Very long anticipated wait.....The Kirk Has finally Started

Myself & long time veteran sculptor & friend Nick Mulpagano of Handiboy Studios
have teamed up to tackle a classic. Nick will be sculpting his first ever Captain Kirk Mask.
I will be consulting throughout the entire making of this mask and will have a hand in the
production as well. The mask is still in the very early sculpting stages and will be hopefully
completed by end of summer. There is no set date on release or name of the mask. They will
not be limited and will be poured in premium latex. The latex will be tinted a dark brown & will
appear that way on the inside of the mask to give it the most authentic look for a 75 kirk & Hero
mask. The Mask will be offered in multiple unique versions.

Please Stay Tuned for further details & Thanks for Looking!!

Here's teaser shot of the starting sculpt.

awesome. the original mask is just amazing, and while I've liked some of the more recent renditions, nothing quite touches the Kirk.

Great to see this!
